What goes around comes around — especially when it comes to home decor trends. “One thing we’re starting to see is more of a nod to vintage and traditional detailing — things like spooled legs, spindles, and other things we saw in furnishings from the 1800s and early 1900s,” says interior designer Bria Hammel, CEO of Bria Hammel Interiors.

But don’t expect to see all vintage everywhere. This time around, designers are incorporating just one or two statement pieces.

2. Navy Blue

The 2020 Pantone Color of the Year is Classic Blue (a navy shade), which means you can expect to see a lot of the color in the new year. Fortunately, it’s totally versatile and sophisticated.

“Navy blue provides the perfect amount of contrast for interiors and exteriors in both traditional and modern home styles,” says interior designer Kerrie Kelly, founder of Kerrie Kelly Design Lab. “Whether a kitchen island gets a quick upgrade or a room gets a dramatic new look with contrasting white trim and woodwork, the shade provides a stately look without going completely black,” she says.Advertisement – Continue Reading Below

3. Floral Wallpaper

If the thought of flower-power wallpaper makes you flinch, then 2020 might just be the year you change your tune. “Floral wallpaper has been around for years and you will continue to see the pretty pattern but with a much more modern update,” says interior designer Abbe Fenimore, founder of Studio Ten 25. “Large scale, bold color, and even metallic versions are here to stay.”

Fenimore says they’re a particularly good choice in powder bathrooms and foyers. Plus, there are tons of stick-on options if you’re not ready to fully commit.

4. High-Contrast Decor

High-contrast designs are currently having a moment — which means if you’ve always wanted to paint your home black, now is the time to give it a whirl (in moderation, of course).

“For a long time, it was white, white, white,” Hammel says. “But now, for example, maybe we’d see a chair with black fabric and a white frame. Or a console table in a dark stained wood with light-colored hardware.”Advertisement – Continue Reading Below

5. Non-White Kitchens

If there was one defining design trend of the 2010s, it was the all-white kitchen. But in 2020, designers predict there’ll be a shift toward spaces that go beyond just white. For example, Hammel expects to see more natural wood cabinets, islands, and shelves — all of which allow homeowners to keep a bright and airy vibe without restricting themselves to all-white-everything.

6. Color-Pop Cabinets

If you really want to leave the all-white kitchen trend behind, opt for another 2020 home decor trend: colored cabinets. According to the experts at Modiani Kitchens, “the trend in 2020 is to choose one or several elements, like the kitchen island, kitchen wall cabinets, or base cabinets in daring colors, like dark red, bright yellow, green or navy blue.”

7. Canopy Beds

Now is the time to make all of your regal canopy bed dreams come true. “Canopy beds no longer need to be draped in heavy fabrics and chunky headboards,” says Fenimore. “Modern versions made with acrylic, metal, and sleek upholstered frames are making a comeback.”

8. Patina Accents

“One of the emerging design trends is an appreciation of patina and age,” says interior designer Breeze Giannasio. In addition to more vintage furniture, expect to see this played out in color trends such as clay and terracotta, as well as decorative items such as earthenware and ceramics. SHOP NOW

If 2019 was the year of the dramatic fiddle leaf fig, then Hammel expects 2020 will be the year of the much subtler olive tree. Instead of blooming bright green, these trees are a more sophisticated sage. 

9. Antique Art

Make 2020 the year you start — or continue to grow — your art collection. “If any type of antique is making a comeback, it’s art,” says Hammel. “People love that it looks aged and that it has a story to it.”Advertisement – Continue Reading Below

10. Kitchen Art

While you’re collecting those pieces of art, be sure to scout some for the kitchen. “There’s always a focus on making the kitchen a room in the house and not a machine for cooking,” says Giannasio. That can be accomplished by hanging art in the kitchen, or using open shelves to display items that show off your personality, she says. SHOP NOW

This 2020 home decor trend will transport you back to another decade. “We’ll see some ’60s and ’70s throwbacks with a modern twist and a focus on line and curve,” says Giannasio. 

11. Rattan and Wicker Furniture

Nope, these materials don’t need to be relegated to the back deck. “Rattan/wicker is having a resurgence,” interior designer Nicole Fuller told Elle Decor. “It warmly reminds me of my childhood and has evolved in fresh and exciting ways whether in chairs, tables, or lighting. It is the perfect layer to balance modern and traditional style.”Advertisement – Continue Reading Below

12. Free-Standing Tubs

Need a fresh master bathroom idea? Try a luxurious soaking tub. According to the 2019 U.S. Houzz Bathroom Trends Study, 38% of homeowners added or replaced a bathtub as part of their master bathroom project, and 50% of those folks chose a freestanding flat-bottom tub shape; another 9% chose a free-standing claw-foot tub.

13. Cozy Fabrics

Fortunately for everyone who loves to cozy up with a good book, Giannasio says comfy fabrics will be everywhere in the new year. “Instead of luxe grand velvet, we’ll see shearling, imperfect leathers, and soft textured mohairs.” Count us in.
