Hi I’m architect Banu Altay from Sia Moore. Welcome back! Decorating your home may seem easy, but it’s not as simple as it looks. There’re plenty of things you need to be mindful about while getting new furniture, wallpaper or even plants. And finally our top 5 of 2020 interior design trends are here! So here’s a guide of some up and coming interior design trends of 2020! Rich and organic textural expressions will be the theme of 2020 designs For your furniture and finishes you can always go for velvet upholstery, linen curtains stucco walls and jute carpet. These materials will give your home a rich and organic texture. And speaking of furniture; Classic style will make a massive comeback with a little bit of a retro touch Inspired by science, technology and nature “Neo-mint” is the colour of 2020! A gender-neutral colour with a fresh tone, the neo-mint aspires to connect futuristic developments to nature. It’s the perfect tone and provides warmth and relaxation to your interiors. You can use neo-mint in a sofa, accent chair, rug or any other furniture. It’s relatively easier to match with various shades of colour. You can combine it with other coastal colours as; coral, sand, wood and sky blue. Soft and faintly retro shades of peach, pale pink and pistachio will give a fantastic backup for the organic materials. Also the deep ochre yellow is becoming something of a tonal peace maker. Geometric patterns have been around for a long time but now, they’re going to have a dramatic presence. By incorporating geometric patterns in furniture, wallpaper or tiles you can easily make a bold statement that will impress everyone! Even your grumpy neighboors! Sustainable and environment friendly approach to design and architecture continues to rise in 2020. And that is great news having in mind that the construction industry has one of the largest carbon footprints in the world. The eco friendly interior design, may actually bring a more refined look to your house. To incorporate sustainable, eco friendly design you can always go for more plants, let more sunlight in and don’t forget to use natural materials! Timeless metal accent sparkle is still on the design scene. But adding a hint of glamour and luxury by introducing bronze, gold, and chrome metallic elements will give your interior spaces a much more nuanced modern finish. And you can always combine this metallic look with the good old velvet. Velvet is a trend we are carrying over with us from 2018, and it still stays strong. Don’t hesitate to use velvet in rounded, cornered and egg-shaped furniture. We’ve come to the end of our list of interior design trends of 2020. But don’t forget that this list was just a guide for you, every person has their own style. When decorating your house remember that it’s your space and yours only If you like the look of something don’t just discard it because it’s not on our list! When it comes to personal style there is no wrong or right. Keep in mind that, to be happy in your home you have to meet your likings. So, which of the trends was your favorite?
