The year 2020 has officially begun and is off with a bang! With each new year comes the opportunity for growth in design, whether it be fashion, web or interior design! Our tastes grow and evolve to reflect not only what is going on with our personal life, but also in the world around us. Looking back at 2019, there were some striking trends that defined the year and wrapped up the end of a decade. Here is a quick recap of trends from 2019:
One big trend seen during 2019, folks are growing tired of the restrictive feeling of minimalism, the massive popularity that we saw with the idea of tiny living was replaced with the concept of “go big or go home” – or both in this instance! Relaxing on a big comfy chair with room to breathe is just too appealing to pass up these days.
Brass came back in 2019! We saw warmth brought back into our color palettes in with various shades of brass replacing the cooler chrome, stainless steel, and brushed nickel looks. Tin accents also brought a unique spin to the kitchen or bathroom backsplashes.
Organic natural materials were more prevalent in 2019. Concrete and wood gave spaces a unique edge straight from nature. Homeowners relaxed in natural elements without having ever to step outside. Upcycling and repurposing older natural element pieces giving them a new dynamic pop, was also a rather big theme.
The ’70s came back in 2019, with its boho-chic and vibrant vibe. Designs featured hues of burnt yellows and oranges, prominent floral motifs and geometric wallpapers for a super groovy space you can jive in.
Vintage sconces and unusual wall lamps made their mark in 2019 design trends. Designers and homeowners alike craved a designed space that was personal and unique—adding an exceptional statement piece for seating or on a side table! Statement pieces make great conversation pieces, too.
Matte, dark large kitchens took over, setting apart formal dining areas. People found they wanted a more intimate, homey feeling to share meals with family and friends. This shift proved once and for all that home is where the heart gathers — around a table. An eat-in kitchen offers enough space to socialize while preparing delicious party snacks for family and friends.
Soft lines of 2019 took over the stark rigid straight edge of the contemporary modern trend that was prominent in the last few years. The feeling of sinking into a comfy cozy, fluffy sofa has taken over replacing the rather cold feel of the extreme industrial rectangle or square look. Cable knit blankets and long shag rug carpets made rooms cozy and luxurious.
Plants and greenery were also huge trends in ’19, keeping in line with other nature feels in design last year. If you’re green thumb works, you can decorate with live plants adding lovely color and texture with an authentic “air,” but don’t worry if your thumb runs black; you can always use beautiful succulent collections instead.
