Interior Design Trends-- Fall 2020
As the name suggests, Interior Design trends come and go-- here are a few of my favorite current trends that I hope stay around for some time.
Earth tones are becoming more and more prevalent in Interior Design, perhaps because everyone has been spending more time in their homes they’re trying to bring more and more elements of nature inside. Using earth tones in your space creates a grounded feeling that many of us find ourselves seeking.

Bringing Plants + Nature Indoors
Deemed ‘Biophilic Design’, it is the use of natural elements in Interior Design - whether it be utilizing natural light, bringing plants and vegetation inside, or using water features throughout. This new interior design trend has some serious health benefits going for it, including stress-reduction, productivity and creativity, and even general well-being of inhabitants.
Woven furniture, such as wicker and rattan, used to be primarily found outdoors. However, there has been a serious increase in bringing woven furniture indoors and let me tell you, I-am-here-for-it! Adding in rattan or wicker pieces indoors creates warmth in your space, and also brings an organic, casual element in. It’s an amazing way to lighten up a space that otherwise has heavy furniture.

Back from the 60s and 70s, curved furniture is making a comeback-- but with a modern take. We’re seeing a reemergence of curved sofas, chairs and chunky, curved occasional tables in 2020. It’s a great way to bring organic shapes into your space!

Dark Painted Doors
Dark painted interior doors are trending this year, and let me tell you - I love this trend! A dark door draws the eye upward making your ceilings appear higher, the dark doors anchor a space and create a focal point. I love the look of a dark door contrasted with white trim.
Floral wallpaper continues to be relevant, though the styles have changed quite a bit over time. I’ve seen such an emergence of floral wallpapers in bathrooms, nurseries, and entryways. It’s such a great way to add character and whimsy to your space.
VIA REAL HOMES
With so many people working remotely from home, and so many children learning remotely there has hardly been a better time for multi-purpose spaces. The influx of home offices and study corners has been massive and most people aren’t creating additions on their homes to accommodate these uses-- they’re simply meshing these areas into their existing spaces.
