Home Tips: Top Design Trends in 2020

Because everyone is staying at home more, the design world has been flourishing. From interior design updates to exterior design updates, you name it, many are actively working on some type of upgrade at home. Check out these 5 design trends that are “in” in 2020.


“A design trend I see for 2020 is fully integrated hardware. It conveys a minimal, seamless, and sleek look while still offering a sense of design. The vertical lines of the hardware emulate molding lines, creating a calming and ordered visual effect.” —Karen Williams of St Charles New York


“As evidenced by the recent viral House Beautiful article, ‘Grandmillenial style’ is having its moment. The look is a traditional design with a twist: blending elements of classic design like chinoiserie, scallops, natural fiber rugs, topiaries, and more, with a contemporary edge (think: modern art and clean-lined furniture).” — Ariel Okin of Ariel Okin Interiors


“Our clients are over the ‘one-stop-shop’ design resources and are taking the design of their homes to the next level by getting comfortable with mixing and matching old and new and even purchasing locally made souvenirs while on their travels to help tell the story of who they are.” — Lauren Buxbaum Gordon of Nate Berkus Associates


“Say goodbye to the cool tones that have ruled for so many years. Shades of chocolate brown, wine, olive green, and yellow ochre are all taking over in homes. We love substituting these warm, natural colors for a neutral on the sofa or walls.” — Marika Meyer of Meyer Interiors


“Rattan/wicker is having a resurgence; it warmly reminds me of my childhood and has evolved in fresh and exciting ways whether, in chairs, tables, or lighting, it is the perfect layer to balance modern and traditional style.” — Nicole Fuller of Nicole Fuller Interiors
