Time flies and we are now already so close to the end of 2019. For that reason, 2020 interior design trends are now more important than ever if you, as a design professional, have new projects in hands. Take a look at the following design trends 2020 for modern living rooms to inspire you.
Trend 1: Modern Mediterranean
This trend features sculptural forms, playful patterns and vibrant colors. If you are a bold person and are not afraid to rock daring design at your place, then Modern Mediterranean is the perfect style for you.
This look is full of joy. Walls and flooring are still kept fairly subdued, but you can play with colour when it comes to sofas, armchairs and artworks.
The materials in this trend are also pretty gorgeous too. Think terrazzo, twisted cord, rattan, and travertine. Velvet is also included in this look, which keeps it feeling rather luxurious but also quite playful. I’m crushing hard.
Trend 2: New Country
Country life is serenity and warmth. And this style is all about bringing those classic vibes into the present and make them modern. This New Country style intends to celebrate natural beauty and giving it a modern twist. This trend features warm tinder, blackened finishes and shades of grey.
It is refined yet feels more a blend of Japanese and Scandi styles. A clean look, but with character.
Textures like tweed, leather and natural wood grain are celebrated in this trend, which is all about blending the lines between indoors and out, celebrating Nature.
Trend 3: Fluid Minimalism
Fluid Minimalism is a look that’s packed with tranquility, fluid lines, and a pared-back approach to decorating the space. Each piece is careful curated and it feels interesting without being overbearing.
Natural materials play with bold forms in this trend, and the colour palette is restrained. Matte black, light timbers, and a medley of whites intermingle to create rooms that feel warm and inviting. It’s soothing but exciting at the same time. This look could easily feel cold and sterile, but the addition of those gorgeous sheer curtains and soft dining chairs creates a great sense of balance.
Trend 4: Decadent Sanctuary
Glamour: who doesn’t love it? There’s a lot of it in the Decadent Sanctuary trend.
Rounded forms and a mix of finishes are what make this vibe feel so luxurious. Textures like mirrored glass, darker woods and brass-tipped legs ooze style and sophistication. And let’s not forget a necessary dose of velvet and jacquard fabrics. We love a velvet armchair, right? Here’s my list of the best places to get velvet armchairs from.
This look is rich and bold, with colours like creams, olives, toffee and antique brass dominating. The fluid furniture shapes bring a sense of femininity to a space, while the darker colour palette on walls and floors brings depth.
Trend 5: Island Retreat
In need of some rejuvenate? Looking for a vibe that’ll bring a sense of renewal and relaxation? The Island Retreat trend has you covered.
Pared back, unobtrusive beauty and organic textures sit side by side in this look, and it creates a wonderful feeling of serenity. Think of this as your new approach to classic coastal decorating. It has all the same base, but less colour and obvious seaside motifs.
Exuding natural textures and bold forms, profiles are grounded with sculptural elements and brutalist shaping. Natures colours of ecru, sand and natural oak evoke a sense of calm and wellbeing in the home. And it’s a look that’ll go indoors or out. Who doesn’t love to blur the lines between the interior and exterior?
Trend 6: Earthy Eclectic
If you are a boho lover, this is for you. This is a very welcome addition to the list of 2020 interior design trends.
This look is an exotic fusion of unexpected textures and earthy tones. Firstly, we have desert shades of terracotta and mustard playing together to create a bohemian space filled with warmth.
Geometric form and pattern are then mixed to delight the senses and imbue a feeling of tribal travels. Showcasing your fave mementoes has always been my secret to a well-rounded home, so click here if you need some ideas on how to best display keepsakes.
Layering these warm colours alongside natural rattan and textures of rich velvet inspires earthy individuality and a sense of surprise. I mean, you don’t normally expect velvet to be showcased in a bohemian home, but there it is above looking sensational.
