In recent years we have witnessed the popularity of minimalism in interiors. However, in 2020 we will be surprised by the creative, bold and playful interiors of the Maximalist aesthetic. Design events have anticipated vibrant coloured spaces, enriched with unlikely mixtures of patterns and materials, complemented by striking design pieces. Maximalism, where 'More is More', is about bringing fun into our homes. The key element is wallpaper, it had a huge comeback lately, for the instant impact and wow effect. But how do we include a hint of maximalism in our homes, without them looking kitch? Patterns are the easiest way to adorn environments with personality; bring together similar patterns in various sizes to make it work. Layering is everything. So, after choosing your wallpaper, a smart way for adding a new layer is to work with a statement mirror.

The Art Deco style is having a huge comeback lately; 50’s diner meets high fashion for the ultimate interior sophistication. Design goes all nostalgic with an array of textiles, ornaments and furniture inspired by the roaring twenties. Art Deco is an influential and elegant style, made of precious materials and decorative layers of artworks, wallpapers and mirrors. After years of minimalism and Mid-century Modern aesthetic, recent furniture collections and high-end projects have finally been featuring an abundance of colour and curved furniture. This year, the revival of Art Deco meets Miami Modern - a new and exciting twist to this design style. We have to confess, we are loving this interior trend for 2020!

There are no doubts that the environment around us seriously affects our well-being and that people feel good when they have contact with nature. There are even studies that prove environments with natural elements transmit serenity and well-being. Biophilia first hit the headlines in 2018 and it’s still going strong two years later. Propelled by the sustainable living movement, it sees homeowners up their eco-credentials by filling their homes with an eclectic assortment of materials like wood and stone. People love the addition of more natural accents, like jute rugs and wood furniture as they provide us with warmth, as well as balancing out empty, white spaces. Organic shapes and natural details are a great way to transport us to the outside world and enhance the effect. You’ll also be seeing the indoor plant trend continue to grow along with this design style; from vertical gardens and an assortment of climbers, trailers and bloomers. These plants run the gamut in shape and size, suggesting that maybe the once super eclectic jungalow trend is becoming a little more mainstream. Biophilia is one trend that is here to stay!

Nature calls and we’re answering back with beautiful botanical prints! Embrace your inner eccentric and go all out in 2020 with intricate botanical designs, looping paisley prints and effervescent florals. From quirky fabrics to lush wallpaper, art no longer needs to live inside a frame. Designate a specific wall or item of furniture for a subtle take on the trend or layer different patterns in complementary colours for a sumptuously busy botanical look. Wallpaper is the protagonist in 2020 - you can evoke nature with a botanical mural or exotic jungle wallpaper, designed to calm, soothe or stimulate creativity.

Colour Blocking started making its way into trending interior styles in the last two years, but the new geometric trend takes it one step further. Strong geometric shapes and patterns add sophistication, visual harmony and rhythm to any interior. For 2020, start incorporating them into the overall interior of your home - the striking lines can be implemented in endless ways to accommodate everyone’s taste. Try using geometric patterns paired with bold colours to accentuate areas of a room and to create a focal point; from fun patterned wallpaper to unique pendant lights and centrepiece rugs, you can allow your imagination to fly free. Use colour to break up expanses of a blank wall, divide open-plan spaces and add interest to alcoves or chimney breasts. We pulled some examples of how you can take geometric patterns out of the kitchen and into the rest of the home.
We picked out 3 Hot-Right-Now geometric flatweave rugs - the perfect accent home accessory this year. Plus these rugs aren't too heavy on your pocket either!
