Are you thinking of doing up your home next year? Every year there are lots of new fashionable tips and tricks for interior design from people like Helen Coulston on Pinterest. Do you want to know what is going to be hot next year? Here are some of the top interior design tips that are set to be big news in 2020:
Metals have been big in the interior design world for some time now, especially since minimalist and rustic trends have been very en vogue. These looks and styles require a lot of metal in order to get the style just right. Well, metals will still be big next year, but rather than just sticking to one, you will now be able to mix and match them as much as you want. You won’t even need to stick to metals of the same colour, either. The rule book is being completely ripped up next year when it comes to metals. It will be super fashionable to mix nickels and silvers with gold-coloured metals, such as bronze.
There are some furniture trends, including the good old Chesterfield sofa, that will never go out of fashion. But generally speaking, if you don’t have one of these timeless styles, you should think about updating your sofa every three to four years, because most styles go out of fashion very quickly. If you are looking for a new sofa, one great trend to take notice of next year is fabric furniture. Leather is taking a backseat as sofas made from stain-resistant fabrics storm onto the interior design scene.
These days, homeowners are trying to make their house as eco-friendly as possible. And one of the ways you can start to go green is by incorporating as many natural fabrics into your decor as possible. There are many ways you can do this. One of the best is to buy furniture that has been made from recycled materials. You will also be able to find environmentally friendly paint, which often works out a lot cheaper than the regular stuff!
Do you often feel uninspired when you are looking for wallpaper for your home? It looks like that is all about to end by next year! Previously, most wallpaper is just one colour or is decorated in a simple pattern. But that will change next year, as there will be more designer wallpaper with funky 70’s styles designs and patterns. You just need to find the right wallpaper that suits your tastes and then hang it on your walls! Simple!
Vintage has been around for a few years now, but it will look slightly different next year. Instead of looking like vintage furniture has been around since the 50s and 60s, it will have been updated with a thoroughly modern twist. From next year expect all your vintage furniture to be made with contemporary materials and use modern colour schemes.
We are more well-travelled than ever before, so it is little wonder that next year, we will be turning our noses up at generic and insipid pieces that can be bought in any high street store, and seeking unusual and unique products from our global travels. Rugs, wall hangings, wicker baskets and pottery are perfect for this look. Handmade imperfections are celebrated, and no two things are ever the same.
According to Pinterest, in 2020 we will be bringing the outdoors in, with floral garlands, hoops, swags and drapes all over the house. It will be in stark contrast to the mixed metals and industrial look that we have predicted will be big news.
So there you have it – our predicted interior trends for 2020. Which ones will you be incorporating into your home?
