Are you in a quandary as to how to decorate your new home? Is the hidden interior decorator inside of your dying to emerge? I have recently researched some websites for tips on the current decorating trends for the year 2020. Here are a few tips I picked up along the way.

According to experts, an interior designer creates an illusion withing a given area. By balancing color, form, texture, light, line, pattern and space, one can effectively create a beautiful room. But since we all don’t have the gift of design; we depend on those in the field to give us suggestions. Perhaps the following ideas will be to your liking.


Currently, earth tones are in vogue, with the most popular color being Classic Blue. Blues are a considered “cool shades” and give one the feeling of being surrounded by the sky. In opposition are “warm shades” such as reds, oranges and yellows.

As we approach the end of 2020, the warmer shades are swiftly making a return with such shades as olive green, yellow ochre, and burnt orange. These warmer shades have been said to connect one with “the great outdoors.”

Trending colors can be easily adapted within your home by merely changing out some throw pillows and a few flowers. Or if you are energetic, painting an accent wall with a trending color may just spruce up your room.


Curves are in for 2020. Anything that has a curvy design will definitely have you on top of this year’s design trends. Like everything else in life, interior design has cycles. This curvy design is a throwback to the 1960s, with designs which could include a curved sofa or cushions with curved finishing lines. This use of form is intended to bring nature into your home by creating the soft feel of waves.

Also included in ideas for curves would be round tables, round hassocks as is fabric that has sweeping lines and textures.


Interior design should also a fluid. With the pandemic upon us, we are learning more and more how to use the space inside our homes to accommodate our current and necessary lifestyles. Humans are nothing if they aren’t resourceful.

A multifaceted use of our space has become necessary to all of our livelihoods. This would include the need for both office space as well as learning centers for children or grandchildren who are being educated remotely. Kitchens and dining rooms are common areas in your home that can easily be converted for just such needs. Of course, the need for designated spaces, especially for those working from home or young children is a concern to many.

An designated area within your child’s room can be set up to accommodate a desk. Many families already have this, since children have always needed a space for doing homework. Put away all distractions, including games and toys.

A bulletin board reflecting the current season’s colors and holiday could be in order for either your kitchen/dining area or a bedroom space converted to an office or learning area. There you can post various schedules and words of encouragement, or even successful accomplishments, such as A+ on that essay.

Don’t forget to open the curtains and let the sun shine in.
