As we pass the chaos of Summer 2020, we are embracing (with some caution) the new autumn season! With it comes new trends that we will be seeing in homes, fashion, and accessories. At A.Clore, some our best inspiration comes from the fashion styles that arrive with every season. This year we’re seeing lots of rich and antiquated colors that may be considered “outdated.” With this resurgence, spaces are being filled items that have an old-time-charm. Thrifting is a popular pastime, encouraging bold styles that embrace one’s individual personality.
And of course, we’re seeing this reflected in personal homes, too. Bohemian, mid-century mod, and modern interiors are all being altered to truly match the owner. This is great! There are so many amazing outlets now to draw inspiration from. Here, we’ll look at 5 prevalent trends you can expect to see this last half of 2020 and into 2021. Let’s get inspired!
Classic Blue is Pantone’s 2020 Color of the Year! It pairs well with the other bold colors that are becoming popular. They all have a rich narrative and stand out. These timeless colors reflect the ever-changing consumer mindset that’s focused on longevity and value while desiring self-expression. We’ve seen these in new wallpapers and bold design choices. And when it comes to the all white trend, there are natural wood textures and green plants being added to imitate color and add interest.
Layers and Added Depth
There are lots of new design trends popping up that are insanely creative. Most are easy to do and affordable, making them great options to personalize a room! You can add interest to a room by imitating depth. Paint blocks extended onto the ceiling or covering two walls across the corner are some ideas of how to do this. Painted arches have also become a common way yo draw the eyes to a focal point without being an expensive option like tile or shiplap that we’ve done before. To add to the boho style that has become popular, decorating with excess plants, florals, and macramé is a fun trend, too. We’ve been noticing people having lots of fun with this, using uncommonly shaped wall décor like miss-matched baskets hung on the walls. This especially is a great way to add depth and texture to a plain wall.
Comfort over Looks
We are definitely noticing that homeowners are going for comfort over look. Especially with quarantine and spending more time at home, it is more important now than ever. This is complemented by recent furniture being designed to achieve both, like this simple, modern couch yet plush cushions. This is accentuated by the love of excess blankets and throw pillows. We see these made in the inviting, bright colors of emerging color trends.
Retro is Back, baby
Not sure if you’ve noticed, but the Rolling stones tongue icon is back. The vintage retro aesthetic is definitely in line with the new popular colors, just brightened. In commercial spaces, the classic diner theme is drawing in customers too. In residential spaces, we’re seeing unique neon lights with quirky sayings. As a popular decoration option, lots of wall canvases and wallpaper have a color block, art deco theme to them, too.
Of course as time goes on, our technology is getting better. Smart home systems are highly sought after and new builds are becoming very energy-efficient. This is great for saving money and the environment. Modern appliances are great, like see through fridges with an iPad-like face, and everyone is adding Google homes and Alexas throughout their house.
