The clock is ticking until the end of 2020. With New Year’s Eve fast approaching, many of us are looking forward to the end of this year and starting anew, hoping the new year will bring warmer memories than the last.
This is also the time of year that predictions surface what will be trending in the year to come.
As we look forward to the new year, let’s take a look at what is expected to be trending in the world of decor next year.
Earthy tones are going to be popular colours heading into the new year. Think warm colour palettes, like wine reds, golden yellows and sagey greens. From throw pillows to your front door, there are lots of ways to incorporate earthy tones for a warm, inviting feel.
Grandmillennial style has become increasingly more popular over the past year, as bizarre as it may sound upon first explanation. Picture a combination of modern decor mixed with furnishings you may see at your grandparents’ house: antiques, busy patterns and crochet. Grandmillennial has become more popular due to its sustainable practices as well. Buying second-hand items rather than brand new is not only affordable, but it is also eco-friendly.
This year saw many of us working from home and some of us will continue to do so next year. By now, you’ve likely quickly realized whether your space is a productive, optimal environment for working. As such, a trend for next year will be creating multi-functional spaces in our homes. With most of us spending more time at home, it makes sense to create spaces that are for more than one purpose, especially if you live in a small space. Creative storage and design solutions can help transform that dining room or living room into a readily-available office space. Plus, it never hurts to use wall space to your advantage too!
With baking bread and gardening as popular activities over the past year, 2020 sent us back to basics. As such, seeing more plants in the home will be common going into the new year, especially with most of us being at home more frequently. Additionally, having indoor plants is good for your health for numerous reasons, including promoting good air quality, reducing stress and brightening your mood.
Let There Be Light
With all the stress and uncertainty that 2020 brought, one predicted trend is to make our lives calmer and centred this year. Called “zen decor,” the style focuses on creating balance, harmony and feelings of relation by incorporating a minimalist approach. One way of doing this is by maximizing the amount of natural light into a space. An easy way of allowing more natural light into your space is by swapping out any dark or heavily patterned curtains for semi-opaque cotton curtains. If your windows are outdated, consider upgrading your windows and you could even change up the style to open up the space.
