Decoration trends and styles of 2020: a complete guide

The decoration trends work for longer or shorter cycles: some decorating styles appear one year and then disappear the next year or remain relevant for some time. What is certain is that one day or another, yesterday’s decoration styles will become tomorrow’s must-haves. If you lack decorative inspiration for your interior, our decorative advice is there to help you: design, colors, interior decorative atmospheres … Find the style that suits you!

What are the trendy colors for your home?

The colors make it possible to give cachet to the rooms of your hearth. They vary according to decorative trends, going from a light and soft touch to a darker or neutral point. Remember, however, that your color choices should also look like you. If the color charts are continuously growing, a few color trends stand out.

Simple and effective: white or pastels

The need for soothing and softness pushes us to choose white or pastel colors, which contribute to creating a cozy, relaxing and serene atmosphere in our home. White has the advantage of being able to easily match with other colors or patterns present in the room while enhancing them. An effective decoration trend without risk-taking!

Scandinavian colors intensify

If the Scandinavian style decoration remains trendy, the Nordic colors are destined to become denser, deeper. Although white remains very present, gray, beige, blue or green become darker, for a decorative style and a warmer atmosphere. You can also combine these cool colors with brighter colors, such as yellow or pastel pink.

Natural and raw shades to recharge your batteries

There is a craze for natural materials and colors, conducive to relaxation, back to basics. This decorative trend is directly inspired by raw materials such as light wood, slate, stoneware … We are dealing with colors close to that found in nature, neutral and true shades, which have not been reworked.

The intensity of bright colors

Associated with a soft color, mixed with a neat design, the dense colors are making a comeback and bring cheerfulness and brightness. Curry yellow, aquatic blue, emerald green … Intense colors can work just as well with touches as with a softer color or another vivid color.

Dare to go green!

Soothing and refreshing, green is taking an increasingly important place in our interiors. Available in all facets, khaki, fir green, mint green, water green … this tone will bring personality to certain rooms in your home: a corridor, a kitchen or a bedroom, for example.

Blue enters a new era

Very popular, blue is evolving towards more natural shades, with more character: mineral blue and midnight blue are becoming essential. Depending on the intensity of the chosen blue, it can be combined in different ways: to mineral gray or earth brown for mineral blue, to beige or yellow for midnight blue.

Each decoration style has its own furniture!

For this new year, the trend is to mix between elegance and character of the furniture. Depending on the colors chosen for the floor and the walls, it is advisable to decorate and enhance your interior with the appropriate furniture: chairs of different styles, a sofa that suits you … The most important thing is to play on the contrasts, avoiding at all costs the “tone on tone”.

Match mismatched chairs!

To give personality to your dining room, opt for an offbeat style by placing different chairs around the table. Back, seat, curves … Vary the styles completely! This mixture of genres will allow you to energize the piece concerned.

Choose the sofa that suits you

The choice of the sofa is one of the most difficult in interior design since it involves studying many characteristics: length, color, shape, etc. Ranging from a simple sofa to one with removable corners, from leather to velvet, this is the essential element of a living room. Do you prefer to transform your existing sofa rather than buy a new one? Replace the feet with casters or add wooden feet if none already exists. Change the cover (color and material) to create an impression of novelty in your living room. Arrange cushions of different sizes and colors.

A sleek style shelf

The shelf is an essential piece of furniture, whatever the style of decoration. We favor a light, refined structure so that it blends into the atmosphere of the room. Choose thin walls and shelves to maximize this effect. In this way, the objects placed on this shelf will become important. Whether colorful, metallic, made of raw wood or leather straps, do not hesitate to vary the styles.

The decoration styles that are popular!

If everyone has their own tastes in terms of decoration, certain styles of decoration are found more often than others in our interiors.

The cocooning atmosphere inherited from the Scandinavian countries

When autumn and winter approaches, you feel the urge to transform your living room into a cozy nest. For this, we favor shades of white, pale blue and beige, which we associate with more pronounced colors. Create a warm atmosphere by multiplying the lights of different styles and intensities (lamps, floor lamps, candles, LED garlands …). Finally, choose wooden furniture, possibly combined with metal, and add a thick carpet on the parquet floor, cushions and throws on the armchairs and the sofa, and blackout curtains on the windows.

The return of rustic and raw materials

Do you want to revamp your bathroom in a style of decoration combining tradition and modernity? You just have to mix the textures of the wooden structures for the sink cabinet and the mirrors with the modernity of a white lacquered basin. This will structure the space without weighing it down and will add cachet to the room.

The bohemian and oriental spirit

The oriental style of the 1960s and 1970s returned to fashion for interior decoration. Go for warm colors (orange, purple …) mixed with a little green or turquoise for a Moroccan atmosphere, or shades of blue and white for a Tunisian atmosphere. Prefer low furniture: low sideboard, bench, nesting tables … On the floor, put a large oriental rug, large cushions, and scatter lanterns, vases … Finalize your decor with a beautiful pendant lamp to create an atmosphere subdued.

Contemporary and modernity take on large volumes

If your living rooms are large enough, you can try a contemporary style of decoration. Indeed, this style of decoration is purified, aesthetic and minimalist while remaining functional. We, therefore, favor multifunctional furniture and decorative objects in natural or original materials: earth, metals, transparent materials such as glass or plexiglass, waxed concrete, honeycomb foam … And contrary to certain received ideas, the colors linked to modern style is not limited to black and white! For your walls, you can completely choose a beige, an anthracite or a more intense color like blue, pink, or even yellow, if the heart tells you!

Design trends: objects to add a final touch to your decoration

If the furniture, the walls and the floor help to create the style of decoration of a room, you should not neglect the objects, which will underline the decorative atmosphere of each room in your home.

The table lamp

Whether you want to install it on the entry console, on a side table next to your sofa or on a desk, the lamp adapts to all styles. Opt for a totally metallic lamp with a large bulb to contrast with the material of the furniture. Make it a decorative object in its own right on your furniture, avoiding overloading its contours.

Storage boxes

Whether for a cozy or industrial style, the wooden cases will go perfectly with your interior. Stacked on top of each other to create a storage unit, or distributed next to each other on the floor, they will give a rustic touch to your interior.

The mirror

In the bedroom, in the hall or in the bathroom, the mirror is a central element. It will allow the room to be enlarged thanks to this depth effect. Contours in wood or aluminum, rounded or rectangular, the shapes and sizes of the mirror are very diversified to suit all styles.

The suspensions

To put in all your rooms, the pendant light is the trendy touch that will finish your decoration. Above a kitchen island or your dining table, in your bathroom or even in the hallway, the different types of suspension will enhance the place. Rattan, industrial light bulbs or metal lighting, as many styles as you can consider.
