2020 Home Decor Trends

It's exciting to make changes in your living space, whether big or small,  to keep up with trends or renew a few old pieces of furniture. Every year, decorators and designers around the world show us new trends in decor and colors  in order to beautify our living spaces. Moving into your new home is the perfect opportunity to breathe new life into your existing furniture, have some fun incorporating new ideas and trends, and maybe even redefining your personal style. Why not?  

As you kick off 2020, take a look at a few of the top trends that caught our eye, and get inspired to turn your new Cornerstone home into your all-time dream space. And don’t forget, our Cornerstone Home expert Design Consultant, Lori Melton, is here to help you every step of the way!

Carpet Trends

Natural BeautyPast carpet trends involved vibrant colors and bold patterns, but in the new year, it’s all about subtlety. Neutral, earth-toned colors are now making their way into homes with their stylish, subdued beauty. They also allow for funky furniture or statement pieces to truly stand out.

Magic Carpet RideBelieve it or not, designers are predicting that layering rugs on top of carpets will be the hot move in 2020. This unique trend adds “interest and warmth” and catches anyone’s attention. A tone-on-tone color palette works especially best by not overwhelming the space. 

Marble bathroom.Bathroom Trends

Marble Moment Perfect for smaller spaces, marbleized wallpaper creates a modern and elegant vibe. With this unique and trendy addition to one of your bathrooms, every guest that walks in will absolutely marvel at the marble.

Let There Be Light: Nothing sets the vibe better in a bathroom than gorgeous lighting. This year, “see the light” and incorporate unique statement lighting into your most relaxing, comfortable space. Pieces like chandeliers and drum pendants are now the move for a brighter look and so much fun in a bathroom..

Furniture Trends

Circle Game:Trends certainly come and go, and in 2020, curved furniture has come around again. You may immediately think of the 80s when you envision some of these pieces, but this year, they’re being revamped to match contemporary style and chic preferences. 

Velvet Galore: Enjoyable to look at (and feel), velvet is making a sleek comeback into homes. A statement velvet piece like a sofa in your living room goes a long way, and adds a trendy touch to the space. Best of all, mix-and-match furniture makes for an irresistible, eye-catching appeal.

Flower Power: Flower fanatics, you’re in luck... Florals, particularly in your master bedroom or living room, are completely cool again. If you’ve been meaning to spruce up your favorite space, new bedding, pillows, or throws are the way to go. Flowers may not be blooming now, but they can be in your home.

Sink and backsplash.

Kitchen Trends

Merry and Bright:If you’re a sucker for bright colors, don’t let the minimalist trend sway you. Brightly colored tile backsplashes are now just as hot in homes as whites and neutral colors, and add so much cheer to your space. Play around with matching furniture and countertop accessories, and don’t be afraid to “color outside the lines.”

Something NavyWhile black and white will always reign supreme as the most classic color scheme in home design, modern kitchens are craving a little something different. Is navy the new black? This timeless color reflects elegance, understated luxury, and style like no other, and works great for your cabinets.

Perfectly PlatedYou already know that open shelving is having its moment, but did you know that plate racks are now “in” as well? Whether on your countertop or mounted on a wall, a vintage plate rack is a timeless addition that packs contemporary style. Display your beautiful dinnerware proudly (and enjoy the convenience).

There’s something uniquely satisfying about introducing a new piece of decor, color, or pattern into your new home.   Don’ forget paint colors give you a big bang for your buck.   Wood accent walls are a hot trend and can be a DYI project.  . Whatever your style is, Cornerstone is here to assist you to find your personal style.   Have fun with your new home and life! Be brave and go for the gusto. After all, this is your forever home!    

Just ask our homeowners in any of Cornerstone's  active adult communities in VA and they will tell you how much they love living in a new, single level, low maintenance home.   Cheers to a new year, a new home, and a new lifestyle! Join the Cornerstone family of homeowners who really are enjoying life!
