3) Colour is the New Neutral

This year will see a shift from neutrals to warm natural colors, saturated hues and jewel tones as a lot of interior designers are indicating that they will use bold and earthy colors in their projects. Shades of chocolate brown, olive green, olive ochre and wine are taking over homes. Since walls and furniture demand more investment, you can look at introducing this trend with furnishings and paintings.

5) Patterned Everything

Patterned materials such as wallpapers, furnishings and tiles will be more dominant than solid hued materials. Interior designers are using the same print wallpaper and upholstery to add more drama and style to a space.

6) Sustainable Materials

As more and more people are gravitating towards ecologically friendly earthy materials, there is suddenly a lot of demand of sustainable materials. Rattan and acacia wood products are emerging as the most preferred sustainable materials. The reason for that is that these materials are sturdy and natural, and at the same time the reforestation for both rattan and acacia does not take a lot of time.

7) Individuality/Handmade Goods

This is yet another trend that was big in 2019 and has made it to 2020 as well. People want to own things that are one-of-a-kind and not mass-made. There has been a shift in the mindset of people from seeking perfection of machine-made goods to endorsing the imperfections and individuality of hand-made goods.

8) Upholstered Walls

The interior designers are inclining towards using upholstered walls over upholstered bed headboards as they have a more statement-making effect. It can be either half wall of upholstery or the entire wall covered in a variety of patterns.
