New year, new trends: let us show you the interior design trends for the coming year. Have fun decorating, renovating, reinventing!
More is more
Minimalism is so yesterday. In 2020, more is more. Bright colours, expressive patterns, lots of decoration and wild mixes replace the purist forms and pristine tones of recent years. A red sofa with colourful cushions? A large, Hermitage-style picture wall with different motifs and frames? Ostentatious bouquets on the dining table? Have the courage to think big.
Sustainability and environmental protection have also become an integral part of the interior design world. More and more people want home accessories and furniture made from natural materials and under resource-saving conditions. Cheap mass-produced goods are therefore being replaced by textiles made from recycled PET bottles or organic cotton and furniture made from FSC-certified woods or durable stones and metals.
For the 21st time, the renowned Pantone Institute has chosen the trend tone of the coming year. 'Classic Blue' is the choice of the hour, replacing 'Living Coral'. The colour experts were inspired by trends in film, fashion and social media, as well as current events and cultural trends. They see the rich blue as a counterweight to our fast-moving times, symbolizing peace, serenity and harmony - particularly in the form of a painted wall in the bedroom or a soft blanket covering the sofa.
The desire for more nature also extends to indoor plants. Monstera and co. are complemented by mossy walls and indoor trees that provide a good indoor climate and soothing green. Those who prefer to surround themselves with smaller potted plants can do so in the form of bird of paradise flowers, ficus, and the ever-fashionable cacti. According to the Dutch marketing organisation Blumenbüro Holland, these are among the trend plants of 2020.
Take a look around
Omnipresent at this year's Milan Design Week: circles, dots, balls. Instead of corners and edges, furniture designers are now focusing on round shapes and designing sofas, armchairs or tables that are based on the playful aesthetics of the 1960s and 1970s. Lamps, wallpapers and home accessories also celebrate circularity in all its versatility, putting you at ease with their calming contours.
