If you’re like us the rooms in your home are constantly changing to suit your mood and updated ideas of style. As each season brings a new set of design trends, we run the risk of being tempted almost too regularly!
Unlike clothes and shoes that have a short shelf life, home and interior design trends tend to have different lifespans. Some home design trends are cool for years instead of a few months. We only have to look to Ikea to see how subtle changes to their core range ensures their furniture remains relevant for long periods.
We can’t get away from trends but we can choose which ones work best in our homes. New Home Builder in Western Australia should not only be considering home layouts and block sizes but how best to showcase current and future trends. No easy task but Perth builders such as Move Homes are adapting and changing to suit the everchanging market.
There is plenty of evidence about where home design trends are going for 2020 – in fact some have been around since 2016 but with subtle updates. Before you complete your moving home checklist, check out the latest home trends.
The simplistic Nordic Retreat style that has been so hot throughout 2019 is expected to continue well into 2020. It’s goal is to create a welcoming, chill out space to relax in. Forget overly stylized rooms, the Nordic Retreat style is about creating safe, inviting homes that help us rest, chil and regenerate.
The style relies on warm neutral colours that help our living spaces blend the natural, soft outdoor tones into our homes.
As sustainability and the environment become a greater focus we expect simple, natural layouts, colours and styles to become a focal point for home designs.
Out There Glam
The complete opposite of simplicity, big, bold, glam furniture and interiors is 2020’s bold and brassy take on the recent glamour trend. This long recycled and tweaked trend channels 1930’s sophistication with a gaudy, loud 1970’s vibe – just to confuse things. Big furniture with lots of curved corners and soft shapes are prominent and ensure your style is at the fore. The style relies heavily on individual pieces of stylish furniture – you might want to consider reupholstering your Grannys sofa!
Colours such as bold pinks, royal blue and burgundy, together with softer colour tones help the trend stand out. These colours help the accompanying bling stand out more – golds, silvers and coppers help accentuate things.
Soft and Tropical
This trend has been around in both physical and digital forms for a few years but is expected to be big still in 2020. Big, leafy prints are making their way onto a variety of elements from cushions to wallpaper. The prints tend to be illustrations or painted which help lend them a less imposing, far softer visual.
Together with furniture and prints, we expect to see big, leafy plants become a hot trend. Whether the plants are fake or real, the trends to blur the lines between our indoor and outdoor spaces is expected to be big. Indoor plants have not been on trend for many years so it’s encouraging to see a trend that brings a more natural look and feel.
Big, luxurious rooms have been a hot trend for many years. Big and luxurious means different things to different people, however in the context of trends, we expect to see opulent velvets, marble tones and brass look come to the fore. Welcome back drink trolly, we’ve been waiting for you!
