2020 Design Trends

 

 

The 2020 design trends are about bringing more color and comfort into your environment. Gone are cold, stark spaces. Replace them with bold colors, comfortable furniture, fun and artsy designs, high quality fabrics. Seek to balance modern and traditional with clean, comfortable looks. Also, reclaim and use wasted space.

 

What’s in?

  • Warm colors, earth tones, boldly painted doors
  • Lots of curves, clean, comfortable looks, European-inspired design details
  • Chunky, organic shapes, classic interiors, round-edged furniture
  • A balance of modern with traditional design
  • Fun and playful designs, rooms painted one color
  • Bold patterns and high contrast
  • Reclaimed wasted space and multi-functional spaces
  • High quality, performance fabrics and bedding
  • Quartz countertops (for the durability and ease of maintenance),
  • Fresh plants, biophilic design (https://fengshuiconnections.com/biophilic-design-and-feng-shui-have-a-similar-focus )
  • Low maintenance, terrazzo flooring and faux marble

 

What’s out?

  • Industrial design, cold environments
  • Designed-look perfection
  • All white paint and trim, all white kitchen
  • Cool tones, pale monochromatic colors
  • Accent walls
  • Open shelving in the kitchen
  • Granite countertops, over the range microwaves, subway tiles
  • Formal separation of spaces (formal dining room, rarely used guest rooms)
  • Concrete flooring, real marble, arches
  • Metal framed furniture
  • Mirrored, glitzy furniture, faux plants, mosaics

From a feng shui perspective, remember to keep four fundamental principles in mind:

  1. Live with what you love … regardless of what designers may tell you.
  2. Make sure everything is safe and comfortable … always.
  3. Put your heart and soul into your space … be creative.
  4. Give everything a home … let go of clutter and take advantage of storage spaces.
