The world of interior design is forever changing and with each new year comes an emergence of new trends. At Cult Furniture, we like to stay on top of the game. So this year, we spoke to a mix of interior designers and influencers about the trends they’re predicting we’ll be seeing everywhere next year.
We’ve distilled what we’ve found down to three major trends. There are new looks on the rise such as a colour that’s filled with optimism and aims to reign in the new decade with elegance, as well as a reemergence of style from a time gone by that’s set to take the year by storm.
Without further ado, here are the trends you can expect to see just about everywhere in the coming year.
The ultimate design throwback, 70s glamour will rise again in 2020. Building from the mid-century modern style, the 70s bought in a range of looks from boho-hippie to disco chic to the glitz of Hollywood. This time period is packed with dreamy ideas and radical inspiration, so we’re fully expecting to see its influence just about everywhere.
“I think natural tones and textures will continue to be big in 2020 but the trend I have my eye on is the resurgence of a bit of 70s glamour. Think bar carts, cocktail cabinets, velvet, fringing and lots of gold and marble.” oxfordone
We’re going au naturel in 2020. This peaceful style replicates nature through the use of earthy tones, such as browns, warm greys, and clay colours. The muted colour palette brings you back to your roots and through the avoidance of boldness, it promotes feelings of tranquillity. On the opposite end to 70s glam, this style is far more reserved with a toned-down colour palette, breezy atmosphere, and encourages a slower, more relaxed way of life.
“Warm, earthy and autumnal tones are something we are going to be seeing a lot of in interior trends in 2020. These trends will see the grounding of nature being brought into our homes through raw natural materials, woven textiles and organic shapes. Blue is still going to be a strong colour trend for 2020 with the introduction of burnt autumnal orange.” northdesign.ie
“I think the use of natural materials is going to be even more popular in 2020. With a strong focus on marble and concrete. To soften the look, use reclaimed wood and lots of greenery. Natural, earthy tones are replacing greys and I also think the pastel green will be a huge colour in interiors next year, following Dulux colour of the year, Tranquil Dawn.” kerrylockwood_
Rearing to dominate the worlds of fashion and interiors with its laidback charm, neo-mint is set to be the colour of 2020. A fresh tone for a fresh decade, this pastel green colour embodies a forward-thinking optimism. Like the freshness of the sea, this tone balances emotions and promotes a calming sense of clarity. Popular in the 50s, this colour works great with mid-century style homes. It also is the perfect complementary colour to Coral, last year’s hit colour.
“Colour wise I think we will be seeing lots of ‘neo mint’ a Fresh pale green colour, which I’m thinking of using to paint one of our guest rooms. I also think we will be seeing lots of 70s influences; colours, shapes and textures, personally I’ve been incorporating curved elements which has a nod to the era.” oakappledecor
“One of the key trends I predict for 2020 will be Eclectic Glamour. A sophisticated mix of retro influences such as 1930’s curvy velvet furniture and sexy 70’s style. Colours with rich jewel tones such as dusky rose, deep blues and lots of metallics such as brushed brass, bronze and gold.” theresa_gromski
