The top 5 interior design trends for 2020

2020-design-trends

With a brand-new year just around the corner, now’s the perfect time for our expert decorators to highlight their top 5 interior design trends to help you and your project stay ahead of the curve. 

Design trend no.1 - abstract block colours

Inspired by abstract expressionist artwork, this fun decorating trend is set to take off in the new year in a big way. With blocks of strategically placed colours in complementary tones, created either by paint or wall coverings, this fantastic design feature makes a statement that's ideal for reception areas and living rooms. 

Design trend no.2 - simple and warm colours

In contrast to the first trend, another big decorating design set to take over 2020 is the stripped back style of a single colour on the walls in a warm, neutral tone. The reasoning behind this simple look is to create a welcoming, safe space to relax in without the distraction of busy patterns, perfect for bedrooms and living rooms. 

Design trend no.3 - the Japanese revival 

The Japanese trend has been making a comeback over the last few seasons but next year it’s set to really come into its own. This includes opulent silk textures, intricate bird and oriental motifs on wallpaper and neutral wall colours paired with simplistic, structured furniture. 

Design trend no.4 - texture, texture, texture

The 2020 design season is seeing a lot of 3D surfaces, such as raised pattern or wavy wall coverings and cladding. This eye-catching design feature creates unrivalled interest in any room but is a particularly popular choice for entranceways, bedrooms and bathrooms. 

Design trend no.5 – the marble effect

For many years the go-to material for any decorator who wants to create a feeling of luxury and sophistication is marble, and this trend isn’t going anywhere in the new decade. Versatile, opulent and timeless, marble is a high-end surface that looks at home in any room or building. If your budget won’t stretch to the real stuff, our highly skilled decorators are experts in creating realistic marble effect with paint.
