Welcome to the new decade! With this incredible shift, (that honestly, still feels surreal is actually here) we have some fantastic home design and decor trends to choose from and immerse ourselves in.
As it goes with every new cycle, home interiors are showing us a brand new look-
and we're seriously into what we're seeing.
It would be extremely expensive to completely overhaul our living spaces every year. Think of these trend reports as more of an inspiration for tweaks we can make in our current homes. However, if you are undergoing a remodel or plan to move this year, this report offers you some delightful options to consider in your plans.
Scroll down to check out our top 5 favorite home design trends for 2020 + an honorable mention:
1. Joyful Color

Living rooms, kitchens, foyers, even bedrooms are showing a splash of happiness all around. Bright color in 2020 looks best with a multitude of textures, patterns, and fabrics. Goodbye neutral and "greige," hello pink, yellow, and orange. The whole point is to have fun!

We're sliding another one of our favorite 2020 trends in with this one: MURALS. Bright murals are now a YES in the home. The best way to achieve this is to use large geometric shapes in complimentary or contrasting tones. Yellow and peachy / pink are huge right now.

Vibrant colors look especially chic against warm wood, and earthy textures. Bright paint on wall trim and as an accent on door openings is another fresh way to implement this joyful trend. We will absolutely be doing this at home!
2. Refined plantlife

Olive trees are the new fiddle-leaf fig, and we love the way it brings a space down to earth. Since olive trees have finer leaves, these plants look amazing in substantial pots like the one pictured above.

Olive trees can get quite large in size, but no worries if you have limited living quarters! Simply keep the tree in a smaller pot and you will inhibit its ability to get massive. Make sure you tend to the soil regularly to keep it healthy.

Our favorite style pot for olive tree plants is wicker or natural fiber baskets. This brings us into our next trend...
3. Rattan, wicker, and cane

We are all so delighted that the natural fiber trend is here to stay! This bohemian style has cycled back into interiors for a few years now and it only seems to be picking up in popularity this year. Everything has a natural fiber variation now, from area rugs, headboards, chairs, kitchen accessories- if you can imagine it you can find it.

One natural fiber that deserves a highlight is cane. With many bloggers DIY'ing cane into their interior styling, the industry has responded with more options for this elegant style. If a piece of furniture looks like it's been refurbished from an estate sale, you're right on trend.

What once would have been given away for free at a garage sale is now highly coveted. Chic rattan has had a bit of a make-over for 2020, with more lavish and even art deco designs being seen at well known retailers. We're all about it.
4. Forest Green

The 2020 pantone color of the year is Classic Blue, but all we're seeing is green green green! Forest green is absolutely everywhere, most commonly being served as an accent wall. This moody color serves as a the new adventurous, yet serious tone, to dress up interiors.

Besides accent walls, kitchen cabinets seem to be the most common place to get a wash of forest green. This trend looks excellent with brass hardware and earth tones as contrast.

Another 2020 trend that deserves a mention: wood layered wall treatment. We love this as a more subtle option for those that can't commit to wallpaper- and it looks gorgeous in green.
5. More Terrazzo

Yes, we know you saw this creeping up on Pinterest in 2018, but terrazzo has exploded in 2020. Instead of this style only being reserved for the artistically daring, we are seeing major terrazzo products all over the place.

Pillows, shower curtains, rugs- this speckled pattern is in full force. Whether you like it for your own space or not, you have to admit it's not boring.

Actual terrazzo requires a serious commitment as the process involves a curated mix which is then inlaid into a floor or counter space. On hard surfaces we think the bigger the speckles, the better. This makes the trend feel modern and less dated.
The 80's are back!
2020 is bringing back a lot of moments throughout different decades, and the 80's is definitely making an impression. We believe this soft, curved furniture is "a look" you might be seeing more of as this decade continues! Ultra-abstract 80's is back with a vengeance. Get ready to see a lot of mauve.
