City Emblems: Subway Tile
From your kitchen backsplash to your bathroom floors, theres nothing that brings on the urban vibes quite like subway tiles. But 2020 forgoes the basics and elevates this trend to its more glamorous cousin. Meet mother of pearl
subway tiles, the glossier version that adds instant dazzle to any space. Mother of pearl accents have the same effects to your space as a pair of pearl earrings
elevating a little black dress. Create visual interest without committing to vivid palettes by simply upgrading the luster factor the ideal accent when aiming to stay neutral, yet ditch the predictability.
Effortless Display: Open Shelving
When it comes to kitchens, 2020 is all about casual, effortless design
, which is why open shelving is here to stay. The prominent trend of the past years is still experiencing a major moment in interior design and it shows no signs of slowing down. Opt for wooden shelves, preferably in a different tone from your kitchen cabinets and keep the aesthetic on a minimalistic spectrum. Next: style your shelves with a cohesive collection of bamboo wood bowls, handmade ceramics and cups in a fused palette of shades.
Surrounded by Greenery: Biophilia
While the idea of incorporating the surrounding environment into your own home might seem on the futuristic side at first glance, its definitely not that far in the future. 2020 is all about biophilia, aka design and spaces that seamlessly connect with nature. Whether youre willing to give a statement leaf wall a try or commit to making your home a plant oasis, all the options to affiliate with other forms of life are unequivocally welcomed.
A Bold Staple: Classic Blue
The official color for 2020 is the purest form of classic blue and the interior design world definitely took notice. From accent walls to matte furniture pieces and from vibrant velvet to accent china, classic blue is everywhere. PANTONE eloquently defines the trending shade: Instilling calm, confidence, and connection, this enduring blue hue highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era.
Exciting Space: Fun, Creative Bathrooms
While kitchens seem to follow a simplification mantra in 2020, we find bathroom aesthetics at the polar opposite. Maximalism is IN from every angle and through every medium. Bold and, yes, loud wallpapers, florals, geometry that borders on the garish, vibrant accents, unexpected trimmings and everything in between goes. Bathrooms
are small and contained, relatively hidden from the other areas, making them the perfect private spaces to go wild in. For a fresh look, embrace the kind of colors you never had the courage to use and commit to bold prints and accents without sacrificing functionality.
