Let's talk about trends in decoration 2020 and everything we will see in magazines, stores and we will want to apply to our home. This year the trends are marked by the natural but, do not worry, there are for all tastes and all colours. Do you want to discover them?
Japandi: A combination of east and the west
What would happen if we mixed the timeless elegance of Japanese aesthetics with the modern style of Scandinavian design? The Japandi would pass, a hybrid trend that brings together the best of both styles and promises to give a lot to talk about this 2020. This translates into elegant, but warm interiors thanks to the rustic point of the Nordic style. And punctually enriched with the colour that the Japanese style offers and that will colour the typical Scandinavian interiors so neutral.
Pantone 2020 colour: classic blue
And it can not be otherwise, Pantone speaks and decoration stores are filled with Classic Blue. From bedding to crockery, decoration accessories and furniture. For the most daring? You can paint a wall of this colour, give an elegant and sophisticated point to the room or you can risk it and include it in the walls of the children's room, it will contrast perfectly with the rest of the colours! And this links us to the following deco trend ... Do you guess it?
Walls with a lot of personalities
Dare to mix colours! The walls are filled with mixtures of tones and textures, the mouldings reappear and the baseboards regain prominence. Attention to the wallpapers, they are easy to colour and will give you that extra style. The walls will be the centre of attention of all eyes.
The eco is consolidated in decoration
The natural, sustainable and with the minimum ecological footprint has long since ceased to be a trend to consolidate itself as a lifestyle. And the decoration is no exception, with 100% organic textiles, reclaimed wood furniture, natural materials coverings, a lot of presence of plant fibres...
Technology enters our homes to make our lives easier in every way, furniture capable of charging your mobile battery, smart appliances, speaker lamps ... Everything your mind can imagine and more!
Look more at the ceiling
We detected it in the last edition of Casa Decor and as we have learned little by little, the ceiling will continue to be a protagonist in 2020. To follow this trend we must have a clear premise: eye with overloading the space. Most of us are not accustomed to decorating this part of the house, so opt for wallpaper or neutral and versatile paint tones.
It is true, this perhaps more than a prediction is a declaration of intentions and it is that we see that this colour may be the right and necessary detail for our new decoration. We refer to three shades specifically: an orange closer to yellow, Butterscotch, an orange that melts with yellow, Dark Cheddar and, our favourite, a vibrant and energetic orange, Orange Tiger that will be perfect on your sofa, armchair or dining room chairs.
Sculptural and curved lamps
In this year's line, which we have seen a boom in natural fibre XL lamps, by 2020 it is expected that the lamps will continue to have a lot of prominence in the decoration. But with a novelty: the curves will be taken. We will see again the return of the rounded and sinuous forms that generate a sensation of movement, dynamism and vitality inspired by art deco.
Plastic-free and Zero-waste, two trends that come to decoration
Recover, recycle, reuse. The 3Rs are strongly imposed in the world of decoration. It is not only about recovering disused furniture to give them another life or even use but of reducing as much as possible the plastic of our houses in favour of cloth bags, natural fibre carpets, wooden furniture, bamboo utensils in the kitchen, ceramic and glass containers ...
All in black kitchens
We have seen it during this year, but black is consolidated as a firm commitment to the most modern kitchens. Not only in furniture but also in countertops, sinks, appliances and faucets. Too risky? You can bet only to give a touch of black, either only with the countertop or with the faucet or the sink.
Beige is the new white
Pure white gives ground to beige, a very natural colour that gives warmth to any environment. You can incorporate it into your table, in textiles, the color of walls, bedding ...
