We recently attended the 46th Annual CdM Home Tour and saw top architects and designers from Southern California create stunning interiors. 2019 has shown us trends of soft white wall paint colors, gunmetal kitchen cabinet hardware, open shelving, colored kitchen cabinetry, and wood finishes. On this tour, we were able to see a sneak peek into what next year’s trends will be, and we think you will be excited.
- Green Movement
We will continue to see architects and designers using sustainable and recycled materials in 2020. The eco-friendly movement is here to stay, and we are seeing it in energy-efficient appliances, smart home technology, fair trade textiles, décor and furniture, window treatments such as shades and blinds, and with gardens and greenery incorporated into the décor. A retailer that is making sustainability mainstream and economically accessible is Ikea with its eco bamboo and repurposed material products.
- Color is Returning
Color is returning next year with brighter pops of color as accents; especially in kitchens. In the past few years, we have seen very monochromatic grey and white kitchens and we can look forward to pops of turquoise, lemon yellow, and avocado green.
- Glass Doors and Home Organization
We are sure that you were just as intrigued by Marie Kondo as we were and marathoned her Netflix series. This trend of downsizing clutter and getting down to only essentials is helping to push the 2020 trend of glass doors. Having your belongings nicely organized means that you want to showcase them more. It seemed like everywhere we looked this year we were hearing about professional organizers The Home Edit. Like millions of others out there, we couldn’t help but become obsessed with Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin through their Instagram, TV Series and their New York Times Bestselling book The Home Edit: A Guide to Organizing and Realizing Your House Goals.
We love a velvet moment and are so happy that this trend will be continuing into 2020. We love the look of a deep blue or green velvet sofa or some velvet through pillows to add a pop of color to a neutral sofa.
2020’s neutrals will be softer, warmer tones that what we have seen this year. More tints of white, softer wool whites and bone.
- Blue Blue Blue
Blue is always a popular color in home décor as it both a color and a neutral. Next year’s blue will be more of a moody deep grey-blue. We see this color as a great kitchen cabinet color, trim color, and furniture accent color.
This year was all about pewter and gunmetal, next year we will need gold, chrome, and nickel incorporated into kitchen and bathroom hardware. We can’t wait to see the transition of the various shades of gold, brass, and bronze.
- Fusion Spaces
With more and more people working remotely from their homes and our daily lives melding work and leisure into one environment is only a natural transition. The kitchen will continue to have a large island that can double as dining and workspaces and open concept rooms will also continue to trend as space becomes flexible and multifunctional.
