Home Decor Trends: What’s NOT Hot In 2020

Last week my husband and I went to a fundraiser on the subject of the 80s. We saw a lot of big hair, padded shoulders, leggings, and huge hanging earrings, and that was it, just my costume.

Now we laugh, but we live in this time of great "fire of vanities". At the time, the looks weren't so fun because they were stylish after all.

Over the years I have learned that the rise and fall of fashion rather than marketing on Madison Avenue is trying to sell us new things. Classic design with a timeless look, not the trend of the day, is what you want, especially in your home. But every January, trend watchers publish their annual trend lists of what's hot and what's not, and confess! - I blame the reports like good gossip.

After reviewing several 2020 lists that I had to create as a professional, I made half a dozen looks to follow the path of the disk. Here is my unpopular list, as well as what the designers suggest trying instead.

OUT: Country house, chalet, nautical and rustic-modern. These styles are the styles of the past decade, according to the designers of Living Spaces, a California-based furniture retailer, and Fixr, an online resource for home renovators.

"In the beginning, people liked these rustic and rickety looks because you don't have to work hard to keep them," says Sarabeth Asaff South, interior designer at Fixr, "but the look may be too worn out." "The owners find that there is a very fine line between comfort and neglect. ""

Instead, the South suggests trying the clearest lines of mid-century modern style.

My Opinion: The farm, the hut, the nautical and rustic aspect are always in fashion if you have a farm, a hut, a beach house or a rustic hut. In every other place, they look artificial. Design for the place where you live.

OUT: Mason jars and art palettes. While the cottage and cottage look relaxed, they're wearing mason jars and trowel art, made from recycled wood, according to the Living Spaces 2020 interior design trends report on Google data. In 2015, interest in pallet art dropped 56% from its 2015 high.

Instead, move to a minimum with cylindrical vases with cleaner linings and art that shows a lot of canvas and emphasizes the negative space.

(That said, I still like a bouquet of daisies in a mason jar on the kitchen table and I will always).

OUT: rose gold. According to experts from Living Spaces, pink metal tones limit its use and use. If you get a rose gold faucet and rose gold lamp from different manufacturers, the surfaces may not match, says South.

Instead, Chromium is easy to clean, impervious to most household chemicals, and surprisingly durable. In addition, chrome always matches. ""

OUT: gray. After a long journey, the gray finally fades. In a recent survey, Fixr found that 80% of designers said the gray was completely finished or declining. According to Elle Décor, the moderate, monochrome interiors from gray to gray are outdated. According to the South, the delay between what the designers say and what the owners do can be two to three years.

Instead, switch to warm shades of gray and brown, or look for a warm palette. Note: Earth tones are returning.

OUT: Ikats and gallons. Since interest in Ikat models peaked in 2015, it has dropped 66%. Since interest in herringbone patterns peaked in 2014, it has dropped 73%, according to the Living Spaces report. Consumers liked the softer edges and welcomed the retro and overall feel, but the data shows that we hit them.

Instead, try a bolder geometry that's been in fashion for several years. And when you see a fad, do you remember the reason for the dragonfly? - Put it on a hot plate, not a chair.

OUT: Edison light bulbs. Lamps that boldly show their filament have lost 43% interest since 2016. "The trend towards exposed lamps was popular for a hot minute," say Living Spaces designers, probably because of their "authentic vintage charm".

Instead, the designers suggest keeping the bomb's simple, screenless charm
