1. Natural Beauty

That feeling of new growth. Watching something sprout from the earth can be as invigorating as discovering your own inner growth. Remember that sunshine is the start of a new day.

  • Characteristics: This trend embodies natural goodness, raw elements, texture, comfort, and plant life.
  • Patterns: Crochet plant hanger, whitewash a brick wall or fireplace, knit a chunky blanket, tone on tone décor
  • Vibe: Subtle, serene and invigorating
  • Overall Style: Embrace the beauty of the great outdoors

Designer Tip: Pair organic elements, like live botanicals, wood textures and stone materials with soft pastels and earthy hues to bring the outside, in.

Paint Projects: White is the perfect backdrop for green and natural elements. Give your fireplace an update with white washing. Tape off flooring and walls, then mix together equal parts paint and water in a bucket. Brush on the whitewash, first on the grout lines, then on the bricks. Wipe the wet bricks and grout with a clean cloth as you go. Top off your mantle with house plants to fully embrace this look.

2. Fun & Fearless

Laugh Out Loud. Lean into your childlike instincts. Don’t take yourself OR your designs too seriously. If your room makes you smile, and perhaps giggle a little, then you get this trend! Smile from within and see how it reflects everything else around you.

  • Characteristics: Remember how bright colors triggered joy when you were a kid? Bring that joy back with colorful objects. Embrace a blank fresh canvas with white walls to make those objects shine bright! Allow your personality to come through making your space unique to only one person…you!
  • Patterns: Tie dye, stripes, color block
  • Vibe: Vibrant, joyous, high energy and youthful
  • Overall Style: Eclectic and colorful

Designer Tip: Instead of worrying about whether your art matches your furniture, think about what makes you smile and don’t take yourself or your designs too seriously. Bring colorful décor accents into your space, like tie-dye plates or paint-dipped vases, using white backgrounds to make the pieces truly pop.

Try it at home! Bright colors and playful stripes are the perfect combination for any kid's room. So, KariAnne from Thistlewood Farms said yes to all of the above when re-designing a child's space. View Project

3. Place of Zen

Close your eyes and take a deep breathe. Feel the weight of the world slowly lift off of your shoulders as you exhale. This trend is about creating a space that gives serenity and calm in our busy day to day life.

  • Characteristics Ironically, when designing a space that has the feeling of being “centered”, the actual objects are not. You’ll typically find things in odd numbers. The calming effect is enhanced by soothing colors and peaceful surroundings.
  • Patterns: Simple and clean lines, natural textiles
  • Vibe: Calm, balanced and tranquil
  • Overall Style: Minimalistic and peaceful

Designer Tip: Ironically, when designing a space that has the feeling of being “centered”, the actual objects are not. So, try arranging décor items in odd numbered groupings. The calming effect is enhanced by soothing colors and peaceful surroundings.

4. Bohemian Bold

Let go of your worries and follow your heart. Don’t worry about what people think of you and your style. Own your true authentic self. Love harder, worry less. Break free from societal pressures. Do you.

  • Characteristics: This trend embodies multi-layering, ornate patterns, distressing, earthy tones and stones (i.e. turquoise).
  • Patterns: Tribal patterns, mandala, ikat
  • Vibe: Free-spirited and worldly
  • Overall Style: Bohemian chic and unconventional

Designer Tip: This trend is all about embracing imperfections. Don’t worry about everything matching perfectly, layer distressed fabrics and incorporate ornate patterns through tapestries or a mixed-frame gallery wall.

Try it at home! Ashley and Jamin from The Handmade Home took some cues from the 2020 Design Trends to refresh their fireplace with bold patterns and fresh earth tones. View Project

5. Rich at Heart

At the end of the day, do you feel rich from within? It’s a feeling that no money can buy. Having a hearty approach to life that ends each day with gratitude. Create a space that that is rich in color, texture and glam.

  • Characteristics: Opulence and luxury in fabric and color. Velvet, tufting, deep rich hues, and mixed metals.
  • Patterns: Mixed metals, velvet, satin, lacquered finishes
  • Vibe: Opulent, luxurious, old Hollywood glamour
  • Overall Style: Art-deco and dramatic

Designer Tip: Embrace a palette comprised of rich tones with an edge, layering with mixed metals and opulent velvet fabrics.
