We’re looking forward to some beautiful interior design trends in the coming years. We chose a few of our favourites for 2020 right here.
As we close out a decade marked by interior design trends ranging from midcentury to Memphis-inspired, we’ve got our eyes set on what 2020 has in store. Curves are having a moment—whether we’re talking about patterns made with free-form shapes, furniture, or doorways—and natural materials (like wood, textiles, and cane)are showing up all over the home in modern ways. Read on to see our predictions for the year ahead, and tell us what you’re loving (or loathing) in the comments.
1. BUILT IN SEATING
Be it a window-side perch with a great view or cozy reading niche, seating that’s built in adds character to a room and can be an excellent space-saving technique. Fun architectural details like this are going to have a big moment in 2020.
2) MODERN INTERIOR WOOD PANELLING
Be it a window-side perch with a great view or cozy reading niche, seating that’s built in adds character to a room and can be an excellent space-saving technique. Fun architectural details like this are going to have a big moment in2020.
3) INDOOR GARDENS
Considering the popularity of indoor plants and living walls in recent years, it comes as no surprise that green thumbs would want to take their plant habit to the next level with an indoor garden. These small-scale plots bring the outdoors in and give residents a chance to commune with nature from the comfort of their own home.
4) STATEMENT TILES
After the proliferation of white subway tile during the last decade, it’s only natural that the pendulum would swing the other way. Enter statement tile. We’re seeing bold, patterned tile being used in both small (just a backsplash) and big (floor-to-ceiling bathrooms) ways.
Another architectural detail that’s burgeoning is the arch—specifically curved doorways and windows that channel Greece’s cave houses. The pared-down treatment is smooth and clean-lined without ornate detailing. Not ready to commit to structural changes at home? Give the trend a try with an arched wall mirror.
