In addition to the usual to-do list, this year’s spring cleaning season calls for updating our decor now that we’ve entered a new decade.
We’ve scoured a plethora of articles and blogs so you don’t have to, and these are the top ten home decor trends in 2020:
1.The Color Blue
With Classic Blue named as Pantone’s 2020 Color of the Year, blue is the “it” color, and any shade of blue will do: cobalt blue, powder blue, navy blue, etc.
We’re not surprised by this home decor trend because blue and cool-toned furniture pieces have dominated the market for quite a while.
2. Prints on Prints
Prints have made a huge comeback in 2020, and the key to this home decor trend is mixing and layering prints for palettes that pop.
An easy way to nail this trend: use two or more prints in throw pillows. Some living room sets even come with pillows in multiple prints.
3. Natural and Sustainable Materials
Natural materials are increasingly gaining favor, and more people in 2020 will be opting for materials that are also sustainable.
This home decor trend is noticeable from solid wood dining and bedroom sets to revolutionary fabrics that leave a small carbon footprint.
4. Vintage Accents
Antiques are seeing the light of day again in 2020, and this home decor trend is not only nostalgic but sustainable as well.
With shabby chic becoming so popular in recent years, you’ll also find this trend in regular retail stores with vintage-inspired decor and furniture.
5. Perfectly Imperfect
Mismatched furniture sets are finding their way into rooms in 2020 along with accents showing off age and patina.
This home decor trend can be tricky, but you can find plenty of ideas in magazines, blogs, and Pinterest. You can even ask a salesperson for help!
6. Farmhouse Style
The Farmhouse style is still going strong in 2020 with simple design elements that you would find in the country.
This home decor trend has especially taken off in furniture design with light-wash finishes, rustic hardware, and barn door accents.
7. Traditional with a Twist
There’s a resurgence of traditional style in 2020, but unexpected pops of colors and quirky accents are being incorporated to add interest.
This home decor trend also lends itself to the idea of buying quality furniture pieces that will last, promote sustainablity, and save more money.
8. Earth Tones
Earth tones will also be trending in 2020 and include all natural colors from rich reds and beautiful browns to peaceful blues and forest greens.
Expect to see more options in the blue-grey family since fashion as a whole is moving towards cool tones and blue is the color of the year.
Reconnect with nature and bring the outside world into your home in 2020 with live plants, small gardens, and decorative fountains.
There are many health benefits to having plants in your home, so go to Lowe’s and get growing! Don’t have a green thumb? Start small with a simple succulent.
10. Japanese-Inspired Minimalism
The “less is more” home decor trend is evident in 2020 as ornate accents and knick knacks have been traded for more simple designs in clutter-free spaces.
It’s easy to accumulate a lot of unnecessary things, so how do you go about decluttering? Take a tip from tidying expert Marie Kondo: if something sparks joy, keep it, and, if it doesn’t, let it go.
We hope our list of the top ten home decor trends in 2020 is helpful in navigating the style of this new decade. Which trends will you incorporate? Let us know in the comments!
