Top Interior Design Trends For 2020

Posted on 10th December 2019 by Castle Hill Shutters



As we move into December and get closer to the end of 2019, it’s time to start looking at what 2020 has in store. When it comes to our home decor, there are always new trends appearing – and old ones resurfacing.


House Beautiful recently rounded up some of the top interior trends to watch for the coming 12 months, according to the publication’s next wave designers. 


One of the first things to think about is your windows – according to Jared Hughes, over the top window treatments are coming back in a big way, helping to make our windows more of a feature.


If you want something a bit different, you could consider interior shutters in Berkshire, which will not only look stylish but can also give you a bit more privacy, particularly in ground-floor rooms.


Another trend to watch, and one that’s great if you prefer neutral tones to bold shades, is that of subtle luxury. Tharon Anderson told the publication that this includes “subtle patterns, textures, and modern shapes, ‘trying but not trying too hard’ – sort of a rich bohemian vibe”.


Using different textures and materials in your decor can help achieve this. Look for furniture that has tactile upholstery, or pieces that are made of alternative materials, like rattan or wicker.


Good Housekeeping recently named white as one of the paint colours that’s set to be particularly popular in 2020, and this also ties into the idea of creating interiors that embody subtle luxury.


Interior designer Breeze Giannasio explained that this doesn’t mean boring or clinical interiors, instead “we’ll see moody white set against clean, modern whites, lending age and depth to this versatile colour”.


Other top colours to watch in interiors are much richer and darker, however, with the likes of hunter green, peacock and navy among the other tones highlighted by the publication as those set to rise in popularity.


This idea of texture is one that is cropping up increasingly in interior design at present. Another trend identified by the designers who spoke to House Beautiful is mosaics. They introduce texture and age to a space, William Cullum explained.


With modern technology being presented as increasingly sleek and slick, this texture and age is something that a growing number of people are craving. Kitchens and bathrooms are the obvious places for mosaic detailing, but you can introduce it to other spaces in the home too.


The publication pointed to mirrors with mosaic frames as a good way to bring this trend into your interior with the minimum of fuss.


Some of the designers noted that they are seeing clients prepared to opt for bolder designs and different colours in their homes too. Caroline Rafferty told the news provider that she’s seeing her clients “take bolder strides and break the rules more”.


If you’re prepared to take a risk with your interiors you can end up with something truly striking that will make your home stand out for all the right reasons. If you’re worried that this won’t work in a small space, don’t be. Ms Rafferty highlighted one example of a small powder room where her client allowed her to use a “dramatic treatment” on the walls to great effect.
