Interior Design Trends for Fall 2020

When it comes to interior design, 2020 has been a year of evolution. In many ways, current interior design trends have taken a sharp turn towards bold individuality – and that’s not expected to change anytime soon. From color and pattern to décor and furniture, designers are branching out and taking exciting chances this year.

There’s never been a better time to put your unique touch on your home, whether you’re considering a full redesign or just a simple refresher. With fall fast approaching, the latest interior design trends are opening up a new world of possibilities for creating a stylish space that genuinely speaks to you. 

Here are a few of our design team’s favorite home design trends for fall 2020, giving you plenty of options for reimagining virtually every room in your home.

Ageless styles that will stand the test of time

It might seem contradictory to categorize a trend as being “timeless,” but that’s exactly where the design world is headed. Recently, there’s been an added emphasis on the necessity of discovering your design style. This means going above and beyond short-lived trends and developing a sense of what you truly love. 

Complementary to this concept is the idea that quality should take precedence over price, as a growing number of homeowners seek to make investments that will last long-term. Say goodbye fast furniture and décor from your local big-box store, and hello to designer and custom pieces that will earn heirloom status.

Sustainable design and eco-friendly materials

Society is delving deeper into the value of sustainability, and that’s slowly shifting the way we function as consumers. Now, people are far more conscious of the environment and their impact on it. As a result, eco-friendly living has become mainstream, including inspiring a focus on sustainably-sourced and manufactured products.

In interior design, this means a new ethical component has been introduced to the process. Many consumers prefer sustainably-harvested materials and are gravitating towards locally-made or artisanal pieces rather than fast furniture.

European cottage chic

The popular farmhouse look has nearly reached its end, and next in line is the countryside chic style that encapsulates the classically sophisticated country homes of Europe. A combination of classic materials and traditional prints are layered with whimsical accents, balancing vintage with new. Other elements of this trend include floral patterns, antique details, and muted primary tones.

You can incorporate the countryside chic look into your home with cozy, classically-designed furniture, including welcoming leather armchairs, a large wooden coffee table in a rich finish, and custom window coverings made with vintage-inspired floral fabric.

Color is king

For years, we’ve seen a dedication to neutrals, unlike any other in design history. From all-white kitchens to living rooms in shades of warm beige, there’s no question that neutrals have been the design darlings for quite some time. 

But now, bold colors are here to take the stage. Jewel tones, deep and dark shades, and warm colors have become widely popular, infusing a space with character without going overboard. Tone-on-tone looks have also earned a spot as a new trend, as have contrasting trim and wall colors. 

More pattern play

While patterns have always been a pillar of interior design, 2020 has become the year of modern pattern mixing. Layering patterns are now a go-to approach for adding personality to any room, as designers create complementary selections of patterned wallpapers, pillows, upholstery, window treatments, and more. 

If you’re considering giving this 2020 design trend a try, don’t forget the most important rule: there are no rules. Mixing varying scales can lend a high-impact look to your space, especially if you’re working with similar shades.
