Somehow, someway, we’re at the end of another year. And that means it’s time to look ahead to a collection of 2020 design trends. Whether you plan to incorporate all or some of these tips, designing the look and feel of your home requires checking in with experts on the styles that are coming into fashion.


“Wabi-sabi” is a Japanese concept that honors the imperfections in materials. What does that mean for home decor? A home that abides by wabi-sabi will use materials that Authentic Interiors calls “humble”: rattan, hemp, plywood, terra cotta. The idea is to have items natural feel that eschews the artificial perfectionism of so much of the modern world.

Integrated Living Spaces

According to InteriorZine, a growing trend as millennials begin to have children is the emergence of integrated living spaces. This constitutes an open floor plan for kitchens, dining areas, and traditional dens or living rooms. Not only does this allow you to keep up conversations with friends while prepping food, but it also means that you can keep track of the kiddos while crafting the perfect peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

Feminine Tones

2019 may have been dubbed The Year of the Woman by some, but Collected Interior is predicting that an emphasis on the feminine will be pushed into 2020 as well. Design firms are all about subtle, muted shades of pink for 2020, including variations like “millennial pink” or “blush.” Get some accent pillows in this shade, drape a thin pink blanket over the couch, or splash shades of pink through biophilic decor options like seashells.


Another trend noted at the Milan Design Week by Authentic Interiors is the use of neon lighting. A hot trend going into 2020, the concept is to use neon signs with messages, smaller and softer table lights, or even just fluorescent neon light bars affixed to the living room wall. A bit out there? Maybe, but it can help to break up the monotony of solid colors and geometric shapes.
