Embracing the earthy tones within the colour pallet is very on trend in 2020. Colours such as olive greens, burnt oranges, and deep blues are becoming ever more popular, featuring in not only living spaces but also being adapted to bedrooms and bathrooms too. These tones are accompanied by natural elements to give that real botanical feel – potted plants, and wooden furnishings are added to create a calming atmospheric feel. Incorporating deep colours gives the room warmth and character. This could be implemented in creative ways such as bold black doors or a rich brown sofa. All in all, this style allows for creative flair and can result in exciting unique looks.
2. Minimalistic Feel
A stripped back, simple style filled with beautiful warm neutral tones that creates a calm and comforting space to relax. The light neutral creams and off whites accompanied with the less is more approach of decluttering and minimalism enhances a living space to become a retreat to rejuvenate, rest and uplift. These thoughtful home choices support the trend of sustainability and this is often the reason many people choose this style. With this look, smart storage systems work very well if do have lots of ‘bits and bobs’ you can’t part ways with. Clean cut, straight edged furnishings and limited décor accessories are required to add the finishing touches to this design, often meaning this look can be achieved on a tight budget.
3. Abstract Design
A free spirited and fun trend that takes inspiration from abstract patterns and bold colours. Think bold geometrics and playful pops of colour to express personality and character and evoke a sense of happiness within the home. This style is limitless and is perfect for a free-spirited creative soul. Colour is the forefront of this design, meaning you can be bold with combinations whether you prefer soft pastel tones or mustard yellows and deep navy blues. Statement rugs and patterned wallpaper, and abstract cushion covers also work well with this theme.
Bring some nostalgia to your home and add a retro feel to your décor. Let your imagination run wild and choose your most favoured era for inspiration. Whether you are particularly taken with the renowned 70’s colour palette or the 40’s signature furnishing styles or maybe 1900’s art décor is your thing. A retro design can be exactly what you make it to be and is easily customised to suit unique tastes. If you shop savvy enough, many items can be sourced through antique dealers and charity shops inexpensively to then be revamped or reupholstered and brought to life again. Maybe you have a family air loom collecting dust that would be perfect inspiration for your retro themed space. Soft furnishings such as retro fabric curtains and cushions are also an excellent way to bring your chosen era to life with minimal addition effort required.
5. Luxe Living
Feeling sassy? Why not add some glamour to your home – think plush carpets, shapely furniture, luxurious sofas and all-round sophistication. This look oozes confidence and grandeur. Statement pieces are key here, often the more the merrier such as elegant occasional chairs, extravagant light fittings and some added sparkle. Deep rich tones work best for this style and gives the look of expense – ruby reds, emerald greens and royal blues are commonly used to create the eclectic glamourous feel to a room. Lashings of metallic fixtures are also a winner, customising handles and doorknobs with brushed brass or gleaming golds compliment the look entirely. Where furnishings are concerned think luxe leather, crushed velvets, and plush faux furs which will implement that much needed element of comfort to your glamourous abode.
