This New Year’s Eve starts a new decade, and as we forge ahead, it seems design trends are taking inspiration from the past with an up-to-date twist. From the sweetly nostalgic Schoolhouse to the sublimely clean and simple Scandinavian style, here are six home design trends to watch in 2020.
Schoolhouse style incorporates industrial fixtures, and warm wood tones. Decorative items like framed vintage maps, collections of globes on the open shelving of your TV room cabinetry, rustic furniture and kitchen cabinet finishes, metal pendant lights, and antique schoolhouse clocks all add a touch of whimsy and nostalgia to the home.
Once popular in the 1990s, today’s Southwestern style has moved past textured terracotta walls, cow skulls and feathered accents. This new take on an old favorite is all grown up, with an eclectic charm that blends warm, earthy hues, dark kitchen cabinet finishes, and bold, geometric patterns.
Modern Farmhouse style is cozy and soothing, with soft, neutral colors, and rustic, natural materials. The clean lines of gray or white Shaker cabinetry suit the Modern Farmhouse aesthetic, and are a popular choice in modern kitchen design today. A shiplap wall treatment, natural stone countertop, apron front sink, and classic subway tile backsplash are all key elements of the Modern Farmhouse movement.
Art Deco Revival
If The Great Gatsby is your favorite novel, you will surely love this Art Deco Revival trend. Classic architectural details blend seamlessly with glamorous gold-tone metal, luxurious fabrics, and rich colors like Classic Blue, Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2020. High-contrast finishes, marble flooring, and bold, geometric patterns complete the look.
Charming, comfortable and classy, the new iteration of English Cottage style features vibrant colors for a modern twist. Glazed kitchen cabinet finishes, cup pulls, airy open shelving or glass front doors, and a large kitchen island are a must, along with cozy upholstered furniture, floral fabrics, and antique furniture finds.
Clean lines and cozy elements epitomize Scandinavian style. Light wood tones, faux fur, organic materials like warm wool or soft cotton, plush knit blankets, and a neutral, monochromatic color palette are all hallmarks of this minimalistic yet popular design style.
