Interiors Trends for 2020: Part One

Now that 2020 is fully underway I’ve been thinking about what interiors trends we might see this year. I always like to predict how the design world will evolve and change over twelve months so I’ve put down some of my initial thoughts for what might be in store at the start of a new decade

Pantone’s Colour of the Year 2020

Pantone have just announced that the official Colour of the Year is Classic Blue- which I’m very pleased about. Laurie Pressman, VP of the Pantone Color Institute explained it as the shade of the sky at dusk- ‘a colour that anticipates what’s going to happen next.’ How fitting. Whilst we wait to see how Brexit will affect UK business, I’m going to waste no time getting out some pots of Classic Blue. I think we’ll see it on a lot of walls this year, rather than in small areas like we’ve seen previously. One of my personal favourites is Lulworth Blue by Farrow & Ball as it hasn’t got those cold tones that so many blues do- I love it so much I’ve got in on my Drawing Room walls at home.


This one seems to come up quite a bit but you just can’t stay away from a few gilt accents. For someone who might be nervous of statement choices on their ceilings, walls and floors, using gold in decorative accessories is the perfect way to include it. Gold doesn’t have to mean gold- varying shades of yellow and orange can be combined to give the same effect and can be as small a detail as a photo frame.
