Top Trending Design Ideas for Spring 2020

If you’re spending more time at home lately, you may be taking a fresh look at spaces where you relax and unwind, especially your living room. To inspire a remodelling or decorating project in your living room, consider these standout ideas below:


Velvet is the perfect blend of luxury and comfort. This year and into the next, interior design firms are taking a deep dive into velvet design options, particularly for sofas, and the colour options are wider than ever! I’m talking vibrant blues, pinks, burnt orange and shades of taupe. The possibilities for velvet furniture in 2020 are endless.

Floral Wallpaper

Floral wallpaper has been around for years and you will continue to see the pretty pattern but with a much more modern update. Wallpaper trends today incorporate floral patterns of different sizes and colour patterns. There is a strong attraction to vibrant colours like yellow and contrasting colours that will make your walls pop.

Gallery Wall

Creating a gallery wall is a wonderful way to personalise a living room and pull together a colour scheme. Choose from a variety of frame finishes, which add visual interest to the arrangement and prevent an overly formal look.

Raw Wood

Expect to see more wooden cabinetry from now on. Designers are mixing painted cabinets with raw wood cabinets in kitchens, bathrooms and living areas because the warmth of a wooden cabinet not only brings interest to a space, but it also helps add balance to it. Hello warm natural tones!


Many of us are trying to shop more sustainably, and the great news is that more and more retailers are offering a selection of eco home interiors too. Top tips to nod to this (forever) trend is to choosing furniture made from natural materials that have been sustainably sourced. Timber, bamboo and the likes all have a low environmental footprint and look great.
