As we countdown the days until 2020, we take a moment to think about the new resolutions we will make, as well as the variety of new fashion trends that will transform the way we choose to decorate our humble abodes.
Whilst the new year is a time to nourish resolutions and give our personal lives a refreshing cleanse, it is also the perfect time to give our homes the tender loving care that it deserves.
Restoring the positive vibes in your home is more important than you think. By simply upgrading some of your furnishings you will create a new vibe that will help you feel motivated and energised for your daily routines.
2020 will be the host of several new trends that will highlight a variety of furnishings and styles that will inspire you to transform your home. However, with so many options you may struggle to find the ones that match your aesthetic perfectly.
To help you make sense of the luxury furnishings that you will want to feature in your home, we have listed our favourite ideas that will assuredly refresh your style in 2020 — no expenses spared.
Importance of textures
Some rooms can seem rather uninviting and ‘boring’, which is why textures will be an important trend in 2020. Smart stitching details will bring patterns to life and many furniture designs will include these decorative finishes on sofa arms, footstools and cushions.
If you want subtle hints of texture across your room, then simply place detailed cushions on your sofa, step back and watch how these simple touches can lift the vibe of your home. Many amazing retailers are starting to capture this trend — Walmart and Tesco offers a variety of beautifully textured furnishings, so keep an eye wide open in the new year.
The rise of maximalism
Forget about minimalism because 2020 will be all about the power of maximalism. Whilst minimalism is all about toning things down and having a very clean and simple style, maximalism will be the opposite.
This new trend will be all about embracing the grandeur — think big, bright, bold, patterns and abstract. Whilst there is a fine line between keeping it lively and making it busy and cluttered, maximalism will allow you to think outside the box and act effortlessly. The key is to not be afraid to test the waters.
It’s all about neutrality
Once again, warm neutral shades will be a big choice again in the new year. With classic and serene tones that create a beautifully clean atmosphere, it comes as no surprise to see that neutral tones will continue to be popular.
Don’t underestimate the power of neutral decor, because if you don’t have the time to repaint the room, then simply purchase furnishings instead — think sofas, cushions and bedding.
In with the old
We will see various styles making a strong comeback in the new year, including canopy beds. There is something quite regal, luxurious and comforting about these type of beds, so if you haven’t purchased one yet, then we think 2020 will be the year to do so.
To get the look right, we suggest opting for a daintier frame and size to avoid the look becoming heavy-handed and bulky.
The rise of biophilia
This new trend will be increasingly popular in 2020 as it incorporates human design with natural elements in a beautifully blended way that doesn’t appear manufactured.
The last few years has seen society grapple with climate change and sustainability, and biophilia achieves a perfect combination of organic elements with style to create a fashionable look. Focusing mostly on recycled wood for chairs, tables and floors, as well as using plants to contribute to your home’s organic aesthetic is the perfect trend to buy into in 2020.
A love for velvet
Whether you love it or hate it, velvet will be a winner in 2020. It is the perfect blend of luxury and comfort, thereby don’t be surprised when you see it fashioned everywhere.
Velvet will make a wonderfully stylish addition to your home, especially for sofas. With an endless range of colour and designs, choosing one may be difficult, however, stick to your favourite colour and it will certainly stand out, bring a lively and vibrant style to your home.
The new year will be a time to rediscover your style and refresh the overall look of your home, so don’t be shy as even the smallest furnishings can transform any room and create a more luxurious and comforting space for you to indulge in.
