1. Soothing Tones
Make way for a more down-to-earth feel, inspired by the humble beauty of nature. Think restorative colours taken straight from the earth and swoon over luscious pinks, creams and also greens. Whether cool or warm, keep your palette fresh with an unexpected accent colour and find a way to integrate much-touted hue of the future, ripe olive green.

2. Organic Beauty
Many of 2020’s early interior design trends are all about establishing or entrenching your connection with nature and bringing simple materials and organic decor to the fore. Rattan, linen and jute are well and truly in, as are timber and artisanal pieces that gift your space a handpicked personal touch. Embrace the look wholeheartedly or rejuvenate more casually with an assortment of strategically placed antique treasures.
3. The Outside Inside
Flex your green thumb with this super chic, glossy-leafed addition to your home. Gather a mish-mash collection of cacti, olive trees and longleaf figs and intersperse amongst artificial varieties practically indistinguishable from the real deal. Not only does this lend your space a fresh and vibrant feel, but it’s also sure to instil the tranquil calm of nature and maybe even awaken the senses!

4. Minimal, Yet Personal
Influenced by Marie Kondo and the blend of minimalism and maximalism, this is one of the leading interior design trends to emerge in recent years. Curate with intention and pair a modern, minimalist room with simple decor items that speak to your personality. You can also keep the space crisp and white with bold accessories and framed photos that capture the easygoing contentment we all seek to embody.
5. Feminine Shapes
Feminine silhouettes are about to emerge big time, so start thinking softer and curvier shapes for your decor and furnishings. Create ultimate contrast by pairing overstuffed, faux fur cushions in pale pinks with raw materials such as concrete and brass. Keep an eye out for rounded lines as well as contours in everything from vases to floor lamps and exude chic cool by offsetting with bold, plainer finishes.

6. Modern Art Deco
Steering clear of straight lines and embracing shapes reflective of the modern Art Deco style is very 2020. Combine classic geometric motifs like sunrises and chevrons with contemporary elements like stainless steel, glass and also metal. Soft draping curtains, brass touches and pendant lights are also in, as are subtle nods to more eclectic and boho styles such as fringed flatweave rugs and furry throws.
It’s never too early to get inspired by emerging interior design trends and transform your home from humble to hello!
