5 Home Trends You Will Love

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 This year we’re seeing lots of rich and antiquated colors that may be considered “outdated.”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!

Popping Colors

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.

Technology Advances

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.

Pantone Color of the Year 2019

The New Year is coming! One reason we’re celebrating is the recently announced 2019 Pantone Color of the Year, Living Coral! You’ll see this color popping up more in home furnishings, product packaging, fashion trends, graphics, and more. This youthful, eye-catching color is setting the mood for the year. Bright futures ahead!

Wondering how you can use it? We have some innovative ways you can tie it into your daily life.

Pantone Color of the Year 2019, Living Coral

Design

There are many ways to integrate this color into your home. Pick from whatever tickles your fancy! Starting small is always is safe route to go; pick small home items that lift the mood. This pillow and blanket throw pair would go great together in any room of the house, small or large. Pantone hopes to bring “evocative [thoughts] of how coral reefs provide shelter to a diverse kaleidoscope of color,” which is perfectly encompassed in this pillow print.

 

What a cute coral pillow.

 

Draw in the attractiveness of this hue by taking it a step bigger. Furniture dressed in Living Coral makes a statement. Here it’s shown with a toned-down blue; this complimentary color scheme will reflect a bubbly personality. Or be daring and match it with equally stand-out colors. These could be more pastels or bold colors to add vibrancy and excitement to the space. Make a statement with it on one wall, then follow through with a neutral color palette. Subtly tying it in with decor is very effective and would give any room a fresh breath. Choosing to work with this color can be daunting, yet do-able.

Fashion & Beauty

If you’re not ready to commit to the color inside your home, incorporating it into your daily life can be very effective. The featured tassel earrings are the perfect little hint of Living Coral, and who doesn’t love matching their earrings with their shoes? Peachy shades have made a comeback this year in the makeup industry, so embracing this warm color will get you on trend too. Aside from the eyes, lips are a great start when exploring this coral hue, you can even go monochromatic and wear a lip shade that matches your eyes and blush; then pair it with a white outfit to stand out.

Adorable handmade earrings!

Whether you’ve fallen in love with this color or are on the fence about using it, we hope this post has inspired you to take advantage of this trendy color. Let us know how you use it on by tagging us on your social media post!
