The 2020 Home-Design Trends You Should Be Preparing For

Expect these home-design trends to take over in 2020.


Velvet touches were sprinkled all over the runways as a trend for this year — and what is in fashion usually ends up in our homes. Because this is a heavier material, we recommend using it in accessories that can easily be swapped out for lighter items in the warmer months.

Rustic Touches

Blame Chip and Joanna Gaines if you want, but rustic is all the rage. Add a touch to keep up with the trend or go big with lots of rustic elements. Do one better, by mixing modern with rustic touches, for an aesthetic that is truly now.

Blush has been called the new black, and it is showing up as a neutral in designs everywhere. It is soft and sophisticated, unique but subtle. Choose one or two larger pieces to show off this trending hue, like a sofa and/or chair.

Brass, which was a trend cliché of the 1980s, is making a huge comeback. First, we saw it pop up in kitchen hardware, and now it’s everywhere in our homes. We love adding brass in accents: Think hardware, light fixtures, and accessories.
