From decorating homes with indoor plants to basket walls, monochrome to classic blue, the year 2020 introduced a new wave of trends that, instead of grabbing on popular décor choices from the past decade, take over them with new ideas and fresh aesthetics.
Here Are 10 Home Décor Ideas That Were Trending In 2020:
Indoor Plants And Aquariums
Instagram and Pinterest are flooded with influencers using their home plants as a prop to get some nice pictures. Experts state that when you decorate interior spaces with houseplants and aquariums, you’re not just adding greenery; these living organisms interact with your body, mind, and home in ways that enhance the quality of life. Going green with some of your favorite indoor plants helps give your home personality while adding some green shade and adding some live aquarium plants in your aquarium is also a good idea to make it look more extravagant. Plants indeed make for a budget-friendly room décor at an affordable price and make your room look rich and luxurious at the same time.
Monochrome was trending in 2020, and that is for a reason. Monochrome creates harmony — because it’s all one base color. One of the most effortless decorating palettes to execute, yet one of the most difficult to get right is the monochromatic color scheme. A monochromatic room uses varying tints and shades of a solitary tone to impact while mixing various textures to keep things interesting considerably. Done wrong, monochrome might as well be repetitive or turn the room dull with no variety or interest.
The Pantone Colour of the Year 2020 is Classic Blue. Luckily, the color is adaptable and can work in a traditional and modern home. Whether you use it as a wall paint color or gets some accessories in that shade, the color adds a lovely contrast. Also, black and blue make a nice contrast. One of the easiest and cheapest ways to change your room’s look is to paint the wall blue; it creates an ambiance of classiness and liveliness.
Basket walls are a huge home decor hit this year. Using baskets to decorate walls is an easy way to bring a touch of texture and detail to an otherwise dull wall. Even better, it’s both cheap and easy to install! You can make it all on your own in terms of color, pattern, texture, and how it is arranged. Wall basket comes in traditional, boho, rustic, and coastal styles.
Minimalist decor is a huge home decor hit this year. The styles are clean, simple, and elegant with minimum furniture. You don’t have to go full-on minimal, but remember while decorating your home: a little decor gives a classy look. Stuffing a room full of furniture does not look good. Try to use less and keep your home simple.
What used to be a traditional flooring favorite in heritage homes and terraces has now made a comeback, and how! Find it on your crockery, cushions, wallpaper, and countertops! During the ’70s, everything was covered in the stone material with its confetti-like chips from floors to kitchen countertops.
A modern decorating trend right now is Geometric shapes and forms, decoration patterns, and prints. Floor rugs, wallpaper patterns, lighting fixtures, and furniture in subtle repeating shapes are a great way to give your room a modern and incredibly classy look. A triangle mirror can replace a circular mirror to add an artistic element.
Neutral hues connected with wood, foliage, and metals have been in for quite some time, and 2020 has been no exception. Forest greens, subtle blues, and gray and beige shades are not harsh on the eye and promote a sense of well-being. Colors that are ultra-versatile and neutral are great for both your walls and furniture, such as bedding and sofas. Something as simple as a bright throw cushion or a rug makes your earthy home landscapes more interesting.
With home learning and remote work on the rise, there has never been a better time to pull your space to suit your lifestyle. Kitchen platforms or a corner of the living room can easily be converted into work stations. Why not convert unused areas or room into a home gym?
This is an old trend that seems to be returning. Wallpaper was a trending decor in previous decades but rapidly lost the public appeal in the early 2000s. This year Paris Design Week was all about the statement wallpapers, and with everyone staying indoors so much, it’s an easy mood elevator!
