Spring 2020: Interior trends
It’s that time of year again. The time when we are in the mood for a good old spring clean and some welcomed updates to our home interior. But, before you start ripping off wallpaper and heading out to the furniture store, we thought you might like a little insight into the latest 2020 trends to give you some further inspiration.
This year, we will continue to see a nod towards eco-friendly options, bringing the outside in and soft palette colours that can be easily interpreted into most rooms. There are plenty of beautiful ideas to suit your home, whatever your taste may be. So, let’s have a deeper dive into the key trends for spring and beyond…
Deep in the woods
Wood is definitely one of the key materials of the moment. Giving that earthy, natural appearance, wood also oozes luxury and authenticity and helps with that seamless transition from the outdoors into indoors. Wood can be used for flooring, staircases, fixtures and pieces of furniture, as well as the smaller finishing touches. In terms of colour, dark wood is very much bang on trend at the minute, with Black Oak, Dark Walnut, Brazilian Cherry and Mahogany being popular choices for both floors, dining tables, chairs, bookshelves and bed frames.
When it comes to flooring, real wood is a really authentic choice. Although it may be one of the pricier options, it is robust and built to last. It offers a warming and cosy texture to any room, from kitchens to lounges and even bedrooms.
Into the pink
Whether on the wall, on sofa fabric, rugs, bed linen or scatter cushions, pink is a versatile colour that has a vast array of shades to play around with. Pale pastel pink offers a calming feel and works well with hues of green and grey, while dusky vintage rose is a more traditional take on the colour and matches perfectly with dark woods and natural Sisal and seagrass carpets for continuing that earthy feel.
Pink carpets can offer a beautiful base for a lounge or a bedroom and can be placed alongside floral soft accessories, bed linen or wallpaper for a real romantic feel.
Metal will really come into its own this year – in all its different variants. If a contemporary industrial aesthetic is your cup of tea, then oxidized metals and steel offer great options for lamps, mirrors, vases and doorknobs. Whereas golds, silvers and coppers offer a more luxurious and eclectic feel if that’s more your preference.
Metals work really well with wood and natural fibres and can bring much brightness and luminosity into a room. Metal bed frames can add a modern update to a dated bedroom, and metal footers on sofas, chairs and benches give a nod to the trend without being too overbearing.
