If you’re looking to update your home in 2020, you may be wondering what’s in and what’s out. Is monochromatic still trending? Should you go for an all-white kitchen? Sorting through home decor trends can be overwhelming. To help you out, we’ve highlighted the five main home decor trends that people across the country are incorporating into their homes.
2020 Home Decor Trends to Try
Wallpaper is Back
Wallpaper is back, and it’s come a long way from the musty floral wallpaper lining your grandparent’s house. 2020 design incorporates bold, printed wallpaper to add personality and flair to your kitchen, living room, or even your bathroom.
Look for colorful floral prints to add a splash in a room, or go for a more whimsical design featuring jungle scenes, abstract art, or your favorite animal. If you’re hesitant to commit to full wallpaper, temporary wallpaper can be a great way to test the waters and play with different designs.
Gone are muted earth tones like grey and beige. This year, homeowners are going bold and colorful in their design. To capture this eyecatching trend, look for ways to incorporate bright jewel color, deep earth tones, and contrasting prints into your design.
Paint the walls of your living room a deep, navy blue (like the Pantone Color of the Year), accent with a lush couch covered in golden velvet, or use the rug and throw pillows as an opportunity to incorporate prints and coordinating colors into your design. The result is a cozy room that feels both welcoming and luxurious.
Layering Textures and Styles
2020 design is moving away from sticking with design style across your whole house. Layering different textures and styles in each room is the best way to let your personality shine through and avoid making your design look staged or stiff.
Mix new furniture with vintage pieces to avoid the cookie-cutter look. Consider playing with different textures, as well. For example, you can pair a leather couch with rattan chairs accessorized with faux fur pillows. Mindfully combining different styles and textures in a room will add depth and personality to even the most basic room.
Add Some Hygge
Comfort and coziness are the driving design force of 2020, especially since many of us have stayed home more than we planned. Enter the Danish concept of hygge, which centers around using coziness to feel a sense of wellbeing and contentment.
Incorporating hygge design sensibilities into your home can be as easy as playing with lighting and textiles. Move away from harsh overhead lights – instead, use candles, fireplaces, and smaller table and floor lamps to light a room. And, look for ways to add comfort through textiles. Bring a cuddly throw blanket to the living room, replace stiff couch cushions with soft pillows, and ditch uncomfortable furniture for pieces you can sink into.
Leaving Room for You
Arguably the most important design trend of 2020 is to move away from perfection and let your unique personality shine through your home design. Look for furniture in colors and textiles that you love. Find ways to incorporate souvenirs from trips, personal photos, art your kids make, and favorite books into each room of your house. Nothing is more inviting than stepping into a home filled with memories and elements you love!
