There is no escaping trends. Do you live with them, or feel completely unaffected? From popular paint colours to choices of furniture, all designs are influenced by broader trends. Here are some of the trends that are set to be big in 2020.
This is a fun, free-spirited interior trend that takes inspiration from the work of abstract expressionist art. With bold geometric, hand-drawn sketches and block colours, this look is all about expressing your personality in your home. The aim is to evoke emotions and create a mood.
Punchy bold patterns and colours lend a more fun approach to styling decor. As this trend of expressionist art movement celebrates fluidity, it’s not about perfection but more about hand-drawn shapes.
Evolved from the Nordic trend displays of 2019, this is a stripped back style. The goal is to create a quiet, comfortable room, a chill-out place to relax in that’s all about making our homes safe, inviting and the perfect place to recharge and regenerate. Trading bold and bright to soft and neutral and returning to peeled back furniture pieces and carefully considered choice. This trend is also attractive to those who want a focus on sustainability.
Where to use it – This look will work in any environment, be it a country kitchen or a contemporary bathroom, but it works best in living rooms or bedrooms, particularly when paired with dark colour accents.

This trend is all about layering with comforting pillows, throws, knitted fabrics and fake fur to make any space feel instantly welcoming and cosy. This décor choice is perfect for seeing through the winter and still bright enough to stay looking fresh and ready for when spring arrives.
Colour palette – Emphasis on natural pigments remain at the heart of this trend. Go for a mix of cool blues and greys working with hot pink accents and brown. The organic nature of this trend can be equipped with teals and greens, which are simple to include in a relaxed, neutral scheme.
Your home is your haven. A personal cocoon that you enjoy, and you do not treat as a showpiece where everything is reserved for best. Furniture is comfortable and inviting with deep sofas and tables to gather around. You like low maintenance with weathered wood and time-worn faded finishes.
A step on from Retro trends of last year, this is a bright, sassy and bold take on the glamour trend. Ramping it up a gear, this reimagined adult trend sees 1930s sophisticated elegance with a sexy seventies style and a little luxury thrown in. Furniture is shapely with rounded curves and liquid forms that take centre stage in this elegant theme. Think of 1920 seats with scalloped backs, elegant shell-like decorations and soft edges.
The colour palette – Choose a rich tone for key furniture items, such as deep blue or ruby red, mixed with the warm tones of ochre, dusky pink and bronze. Think metallic touches of glamour – like shimmering gold, burnished copper, brushed brass and bronze.
