Home decor trends in 2020

A new year is here and with that comes new design trends for the home. In 2019 we saw plenty of two-toned kitchen cabinets, wallpapered accent walls and barn doors. Are those on their way out or are they here to stay? Only time will tell…

  • Wood Tone Cabinets– Natural wood looking cabinets are back in high demand in 2020. All white kitchens are seeing their way out and people are rediscovering their love for warm, yet neutral wood grain.

  • Black Stone Countertops– Black countertops add a moodier vibe to an otherwise neutral space.

  • Cane Furniture– Cane furniture pieces are great because they are classic but also versatile. They can read coastal, traditional, bohemian or modern as far as design style goes.

  • Vintage Decor– In the interest of reduce/reuse, vintage pieces are making a big comeback. Not only is shopping conscientiously good for the environment, but you end up with more unique items.

If you need some home design inspiration, we would love to help you and feature your space on our blog post series, Reimagined Spaces. We invite you to email us a picture of your space along with a short narrative of your dreams for that space.   If your space is chosen we will send you a short questionnaire that will allow Michaela to understand your vision, likes, dislikes and the design aesthetic that most appeals to you.  Michaela will create a design board and provide it along with links to the materials selected that compliment your space.  All reimagined spaces will be featured through this blog.
