As we draw to the end of another year (and another decade), we're excited to see what 2020 has in store for our homes. 

With trend forecasters already making their design predictions and the high street offering us an early glimpse at the first collections for next year, here's our edit of what we think the next year will look like for your home. 

Tranquil spaces

With the world outside your window a bit full-on, interior trends are reflecting the need to turn your home into a haven to which you can retreat to spend time with family and friends. That's some of the philosophy behind paint brand Dulux's prediction of Colour of the Year for 2020 - Tranquil Dawn

Classic Blue

Each year, many colour-influencers choose a shade that they think will define the coming 12 months - we've also looked at Benjamin Moore and Graham and Brown's thoughts for 2020 too. However, Pantone is widely regarded as the authority of colour trend predictions, and for 2020 they've chosen Classic Blue. 

Notably, Pantone's choice this year follows the same idea for a colour that represents harmony, safety and stability, especially in comparison to some of their bold and outrageous choices for Colour of the Year in previous years. 

Playful pastels

Blush pink is a trend that has been around for a number of years, but 2020's take on the theme sees the colour combined with pale mint greens, buttercup yellows and powder blues to create an artistic ice cream palette. 

Limewash paint

Creating walls with texture is a growing trend in elevating your interiors beyond basic. From wall panelling to paint effects, it's something we've noticed building favour with top interior stylists for 2020. In particular, these beautiful textured walls, created using a lime paint such as Bauwerk, are becoming more popular as we get more confident with experimenting in our homes. 

Eco-friendly spaces

You can also expect to see a growing focus on mindfulness about our homes and what we choose to put in them. In 2020, there will undoubtedly be a shift towards investing more thoughtfully in furniture that is made form sustainable sources and that lasts a long time, while we also expect to see more designs made from recycled products in interesting and intriguing forms and a continued move away from plastic.

For the longest time, interior lovers have been programmed to have an adverse reaction to the word beige. However, warmer neutral tones are set to replace grey as the go-to neutral colours for the coming year. If it helps, we're calling the trend 'Oatmeal' to make it a bit more palatable for beige-phobics. 

Botanical designs

Botanical designs are popular season after season, year after year, from floral prints to tropical motifs. The tropical trend for 2020 has evolved to include grounded earthy tones - mixing jungle vibes with natural materials and textures. Pampas grass is one of the biggest interior trends of the past year, and long may it continue for 2020 we say. 

Curves and arches

Strong, geometric shapes are a surefire way to make an impact in a space, no matter the size. However, in 2020, we're seeing an explosion of curves and arches onto the high street, following on from designer trends. Keep an eye out at Dunelm in particularly for a range of bold, curved mirrors, that we think are going to be super popular at the start of the new year.
