Hands up if your home is a constantly evolving mix of all the things you love – as it should be. But as with new season fashion trends we see new emerging new home decor trends each season, that tempt us to update our homes – rather than change them entirely.
Whilst ‘trends’ change and evolve, they do so at different paces – some are popular for years rather than merely a season. Take the Nordic trend, it has been with us for years now and yet continues to surprise and delight. But there are also key colours that become the big thing for decorating our homes – especially now with various ‘Colour of the Year‘ accolades.
Trend 1. Abstract Energy
This is the fun, free-spirited interiors trend that takes inspiration from abstract expressionist artwork. With bold geometrics, hand-drawn sketches and playful blocks of colour this look is all about expressing personality in our homes. The purpose is to evoke emotion and create a mood – and that, it certainly does.
Bold patterns and punchy colours lend a more playful approach to styling a decor. As with the expressionist art movement this trend celebrates the imperfect and fluidity of hand-drawn forms – line drawings play a key focus within this look.
The colour palette
This is where colour comes into the forefront. This trend allows you to be bold with colours, even with combinations – try burnished red with navy or mustard with mauve
Trend 2. Structured Simplicity
Evolving from the Nordic Retreat trend of 2019 this look is stripped back style back. The purpose is to create a calm, comfy, chilled-out space to relax in – it’s all about making our homes a safe, inviting space to rest and regenerate.
Has grey had its day? The new neutrals are warming, as we look to create a calm yet uplifting space to retreat to from the outside world.
Trade bold and bright for soft and neutral and go for pared-back pieces and considered choices. This element of more thoughtful home choices comes from the trend for being aware of sustainability.
Where to use it
This look works in any setting, whether it’s a rustic kitchen or a small modern bathroom, but it’s especially at home in a living room or bedroom, paired with a dark accent colour.
Trend 3. Honest comforts
Layer up comforting cushions, throws, knits and faux furs to make any space feel instantly inviting. This approach will see you through the winter and still light enough to see your home fashionably dressed ready for spring.
The colour palette
The emphasis on natural pigments remains at the roots of this trend. Go for a mix of cool blues and greys teamed with accents of warmer pinks and browns. This organic colour palette can be complemented by washed teals and mossy greens, that are easy to work into a relaxed, neutral scheme.
Comforting textures, soft colours and decorative details are key for textiles and bedding this season. Think quilted throws and bedspreads in washed linens and tactile weaves, and thick woollen blankets with decorative fringing, tassels and trims.
When to choose it
Your home is your haven. A personal sanctuary that you enjoy, that you don’t treat as a showpiece and nothing is reserved for best. Furniture feels comfortable and inviting with comfortable sink-into sofas and hearty tables to gather around. You like a low-maintenance look with weathered woods, faded tones and time-worn finishes.
Trend 4. Eclectic Glamour
A move on from Retro Revival last season, this is 2020’s bold, confident and sassy take on the glamour trend. Taking it up a notch this reimagined trend is a grown-up look that channels Thirties sophisticated elegance with a little sexy Seventies-style opulence thrown in. Here shapely furniture with rounded curves and fluid shapes takes centre stage within this elegant theme. Think 1920s elegant occasional chairs with the scalloped shell-like backs and soft edges.
The colour palette
Pick rich tones for key pieces, such as royal blue or ruby, mixed with warmer tones of ochre, rose and bronze. Layer on the bling with lashings of metallic touches – think gleaming gold, burnished copper, brushed brass and bronze.”
