Whether or not you are a trendsetter or follower, you can not deny the influence trends have on our decorating choices at house.
As we move closer towards 2020, we can not enable but wonder about the subsequent interior trends to dominate in the year ahead. Right here, Australia’s leading interior authorities inform us their predictions.
Peek inside an interior designer’s house:
1. Wall panelling
Kate Lawrence, interior designer and founder of Kate Lawrence Interiors, predicts the existing reputation of wall panelling will soar to new heights in 2020.
“Whilst currently present in 2019, wall panelling is a trend that will stay robust suitable by way of 2020 and beyond,” she says. “It is an inexpensive style option that offers a space ‘wow-factor’, but does not demand a significant price range to be in a position to introduce it to your house.”
Her favourite use for wall panelling? Adding it to your bedhead wall.
two. Feminine shapes
According to renowned interior stylist, Steve Cordony, we’ll be seeing far more feminine silhouettes in 2020. Feel softer and curvier shapes in interior decor and furnishings.
“Softer, far more feminine shapes are generating influence with interiors and contrast completely with raw components such as concrete and brass,” he says.
Appear out for curved lines and silhouettes in every thing from vases to floor lamps and seating, and then group them with bold, raw finishes.
three. Back to nature
Nature in interiors will be larger and much better in 2020, says stylist and author, Jason Grant. “I appreciate adding components of nature to spaces I develop,” he says.
“I adore objects, finishes and furnishings pieces that embrace the all-natural planet I’m generally inspired by colour, textures and components from the earth and the sea.”
To introduce the trend into your house, opt for pieces and finishes produced from all-natural components such as timber and stone, and take a nature stroll to forage for fallen palms, branches or leaves in intriguing shapes which make for lovely (and no cost!) pieces of décor.
four. Contemporary Art Deco
Interior stylist Emma Blomfield is all about the curves for interiors in 2020, and says we’ll be steering away from straight lines and leaning into shapes reflective of the modern day Art Deco trend.
“Straight lines be gone! It is all about the curves now and we are going to see a lot far more of this specifically in bathroom and kitchen joinery, as nicely as general furnishings styles going forward,” explains Emma.
“We’re continuing to adapt components from the Art Deco era and bringing them into the 21st Century with geometric motifs like sunrises and chevrons.” These shapes will make appearances in fabrics for curtains, cushions, chairs and even sofas.
We’ve been on excellent terms with terrazzo for a handful of years, but in 2020 we’re set to turn into ideal close friends with the composite surface (produced up of chips of marble, glass and stone) says Kate.
“Terrazzo has enjoyed a massive revival and will majorly trend in 2020,” she says. “It adds terrific texture and interest to a space, regardless of whether that be in the bathroom or kitchen.”
Thanks to its rise in reputation, quite a few tiles firms have created appear-a-like solutions which implies the style can now be accomplished at a decrease price.
six. Earthy textures
To complement the soft, feminine shapes he’s forecasted for 2020, Steve says earthy textures will be producing a notable look, as well.
“Organic types and earthy textures in muted, dusty tones will continue to dominate the palettes of interiors,” he says. Bring this trend into your house with furnishings pieces or soft furnishings upholstered in textured fabrics such as bouclé, tweed, felt or wool.
7. Handmade creations
If you do not currently, it is time to admire the beauty and imperfections in handmade creations, says Jason. “Things that are produced by hand are so unique and bespoke,” he says.
“It’s time to embrace the imperfect and organic shapes that add heart and soul to a space.” Hello, handmade ceramics and homemade arts and crafts — get prepared to discover them a unique spot in your house.
eight. Fluted glass
If you are not familiar with fluted glass, you quickly will be, says Emma. Fluted glass refers to panels of glass with vertical grooves and is also recognized as textured glass, privacy glass or ribbed glass.
“This is a nod to the Art Deco era. We will see fluted glass getting applied to a quantity of various applications such as shower screens, inset into joinery in kitchen cabinets, and as basic space dividers rather than gyprock walls.”
“Concrete is set to be a significant player in the 2020 interior landscape,” predicts Kate, adding, “and concrete finishes slot so completely into other well-known trends like earthy tones, Byron Bay-inspired styles and raw finishes”.
Lawrence suggests introducing concrete into your house by the way of a kitchen bench leading, bathroom basins or a lovely freestanding bath.
10. Brass accents
If 2019 was all about the black tapware, 2020 is all about brass, says Emma. “While brass has been an selection with most tapware makers, it hasn’t peaked just but, she says.
“It’s the quiet achiever of the tapware market and we will continue to appreciate brass components and applications for a quantity of years.”
