If you’re anything like us, the rooms in your home are constantly changing to better suit your mood and style. With each season bringing a new set of design trends, we run the risk of being tempted almost too regularly!
Unlike clothes and footwear which have a short shelf life, home and interior design trends tend to have different lifespans. Some home design trends are fresh for years instead of a few months.
We can’t get away from trends, but we can choose which ones work best in our homes. A first time home buyer or new home builder in Perth should not only be considering home layouts and block sizes but how best to showcase current and future trends. No easy task but Perth new home builders such as Move Homes are adapting and changing to suit the forever changing market.
Ample evidence is already indicating where home design trends are going for 2020 – some have been around since 2015! Before you complete your moving home checklist, check out the latest home trends.
The simplistic Nordic Retreat style that has been so hot throughout 2019 is expected to continue strongly in 2020. Nordic Retreat is designed to create a chill, relaxed and welcoming environment. Move to the side overly stylised rooms, a Nordic Retreat style is about creating safe, inviting homes that help us chill and regenerate.
All Nordic styles rely on warm neutral colours that help living spaces blend the natural, soft outdoor tones into a tender home. As sustainability and the environment become a greater focus, we expect simple, natural layouts, colours and styles to become a focal point for home designs.
Full On Glam
On the opposite side of simplicity, big, bold, glam furniture and interiors, sits 2020’s bold and brassy take on the recent glamour trend. This long recycled and tweaked trend channels 1930’s sophistication with a gaudy, loud 1970’s vibe – just to confuse things. Big furniture with lots of curved corners and soft shapes are prominent and ensure your style is at the fore. The style relies heavily on individual pieces of stylish furniture – you might want to consider reupholstering your Grannys sofa!
Colours such as bold pinks, royal blue and burgundy, together with softer colour tones, help highlight the trend. All of these colours help the accompanying bling such as gold, silvers and coppers, stand out more.
Soft and Tropical
This trend has been around in both physical and digital forms for a few years but is expected to be big still in 2020. Big, leafy prints are making their way onto a variety of elements from cushions through to wallpapers. The prints tend to be illustrations or painted, which help lend them a less imposing, far softer visual.
Together with furniture and prints, we expect to see big, leafy plants become a hot trend. Whether the plants are fake or real, the trend of blurring the lines between our indoor and outdoor spaces is expected to be grand. We for one are exciting to see indoor plants rise – we’re all for the natural look and feel.
Big, luxurious rooms have been on trend for a while now. What big and luxurious means to everyone differs. However, in the context of trends, we expect to see opulent velvets, marble tones and brass look come to the fore.
