Interior Design Trends For The New Year

Written by Posted On Thursday, 19 December 2019 06:06

The countdown to the New Year has begun, and each day is flying by quicker than the last. Don’t let your décor get trapped in the previous decade. The latest trends, styles, and techniques are sure to bring a new level to your interior design game and impress friends and family. Let’s find out how the new decade of interior design is shaping up.

Viva la Velvet

Nothing says bold like velvet, and 2020 is the year to make a statement with your interior décor. Velvet brings luxury and comfort to a modern apartment. A velvet couch is a solid foundation for a classy and stylish living room.  When you’re looking to make a statement, use rich-hued colors like green, blue, or burnt orange. The bold look will impress your guests the minute they walk in.

Antique and Traditional Pieces

Maybe you’re not the type to show off velvet—and that’s okay. If you’re more of a traditionalist, you’re not alone. 2020 is trending toward classic shapes and traditional brown furniture. An old, antique piece of furniture can complement an otherwise contemporary interior, especially if it has a story and can serve as a conversation piece (like a family heirloom).

Geometric is In

Geometric patterns have been on the rise for the last few years, and for a good reason. The patterns appeal to the eye and create a central focus for surrounding décor. Finding a balance in your apartment is the key to a successful design. Overdoing it is easy and can overwhelm the senses. Rather than going all-out with geometric wallpaper, try contemporary patterns on chairs and throws.

Metal is Better

Just like last year, the industrial look is in, and it’s a powerful way to make a statement. Mirrors, coffee tables, and other small decorative pieces can show off your style with a steel or oxidized aesthetic or even a gold or silver approach. Metal’s adaptability to any style, such as vintage, modern, or minimalist, make it extremely versatile and approachable for the novice decorator.

Art with a Purpose

In today’s culture, creating a function for our art has become commonplace. Applied art is designed to serve a purpose, whether every day or once a year. This art includes decorative furniture or chandeliers, coat racks, custom folding screens, pottery, and more. These creations combine functionality with an aesthetic that can bring a room together. Try to use functional art sparingly—a piece here and a piece there—to avoid overwhelming the senses.
