Going Beyond Pale Monochromatics
One defining trend of the 2010s were pale-colored monochromatic rooms in colors such as taupe or gray or white. But designers predict that the 2020 trend will allow you to have a bright and airy space without restricting yourself to one color scheme. Now is the time for contrast, darken your darks (in moderation, of course), layer your pieces and get comfortable mixing and matching old and new For example, you’ll see light colored room with a black accent wall. Pairing bold colors and pieces is fresh, yet timeless.
Traditional elegance with a twist is definitely on-point this year, breathing fresh life into a design from the past, such as canopy beds. Modern canopy beds need not be draped in linens to give you that regal feeling. Clean lines and modern finishes make canopy bed frames a bold and beautiful bedroom design choice.
We happen to think adding natural elements to your home decor is always on-trend! Moving pieces made from wicker, jute, and rattan from the back deck and turning them into a statement piece in your inside living spaces is a warm, inviting and a playful way to balance modern and traditional.
It should come as no surprise that patterns are here to stay, you can find them on nearly everything. The key is to not overdo it. Adding pops of pattern in unexpected places will add a touch of whimsy, yet still feel grounded.
