February 3, 2020

With the new year comes necessary redecorating. Many popular 2019 home trends are still thriving, but there are several new trends you can adopt to bring your home into 2020 and the next century. We’ve narrowed down a few of the top trends we expect to continue into 2020 with concepts like bold kitchen backsplashes, wicker furniture, and biophilic designs. Perfect for any luxury and chic home, these aspects and a few others are guaranteed to spice up any room in the house and put you ahead of the game when it comes to interior design.


Kitchen Backsplashes

In the past, crisp white kitchens have been the ideal style. However, why not add to that by incorporating backsplashes behind the stovetop and any other area free of cabinetry. This adds a unique characteristic to any chic kitchen. Backsplashes have many uses and are probably one of the most versatile spaces when it comes to expressing your creativity. Further, a kitchen backsplash is incredibly easy to care for and clean, which is especially valuable in a light-colored kitchen; cook up a storm without worrying about splashes and stains.


Rattan and Wicker Furniture

Often used as a decorative addition, this Bohemian look is creeping back into dining and living rooms across america. Tied to the recent resurgence of the 1970’s, these home accessories fit in with on trend looks such as flare jeans and corduroy. Made from woven wood, the ratten and wicker furniture are a staple of tropical climates.


Real Plants/Biophilic Design

Nothing brings life and energy to a room than a carefully curated plant collection. Biophilic design is being incorporated into homes across the world. Anything from extravagant plant walls, to a simple hanging succulent is acceptable to utilize this trend. Don’t forget that sunlight and daily watering is still necessary.


Bold Black and White

Black and white are the beginning and end of the color spectrum. They literally couldn’t be a starker contrast between colors, but the clash between light and dark is making its way its way up the trend list. There are millions of ways to incorporate this yin and yang trend into your home decor. Black chairs and sofas, white throw pillows, chevron print, black and white marble–there are so many textiles and pattern variations that marry these two colors.


Feminine Tones

Interior design firms are pushing feminine tones straight through 2019 and into 2020 with variations of the traditionally feminine pink. These tones are all about different shades of pink, but they’re more subtle. Blush, millennial pink, bronze, taupe, and other light pink shades work well paired with neutral rooms. You’ll begin to see them more often paired with whites, grays, and metallics.


Floral Wallpaper

Floral wallpaper has been around for a long time, but we’re beginning to see modern updates to the trend. Options that include bold colors, large patterns, and even metallic versions are becoming popular and will most likely be here to stay for 2020. They’re a particularly good choice in powder bathrooms, offices, and foyers. Not ready to commit? There are tons of stick-on options.
