    New Year, New Home! Now that the holidays have passed and garlands and trees are coming down, many homeowners decide it’s a good time to update their decor. A home that fits your lifestyle and tastes, of course, is what everyone wants. That may mean trendy scheme or it may mean something more classic. If you’re wanting to incorporate the latest styles, here’s what the experts are predicting for the new decade.

    An overall theme we’re seeing among the sources is simplicity. Monochromatic color schemes, minimalist architecture, and smaller, yet functional homes are gaining popularity. People have been paring down their decor, and have focused on purchasing quality over quantity. But don’t pack-up your farmhouse goods yet! Upscale elements of the farmhouse trend, like aged furniture and vintage pieces are holding on strong.

    The plain gray and white themes are losing momentum in favor of deep, rich hues and bold patterns. Think royal jewel tones, sophisticated pinks, and earth tones for walls and kitchen cabinets. Patterned wallpaper and tiles are back with a vengeance. Designers are mixing and matching patterns and colors for visual interest. A bold accent, like brightly painted trims or fireplaces could be an in-between for those who aren’t ready to commit to a saturated room. Pantone, the authority on all things color, dubbed Classic Blue as the 2020 color of the year. A deep, calming color that you might imagine on a royal ball gown. Color is especially gaining momentum in kitchens, with colorful cabinets, natural wood finishes, and mixed metal accents. Woods and metals in particular can brighten up an all-white kitchen, without detracting from the fresh and airy feel. 

    Sustainability is a growing concern worldwide, and that’s showing up in home design with materials. People in general are more aware of their impact on the planet than ever. Recycled and sustainable materials, as well as those produced with minimal waste are being seen more and more in new construction and remodeling. Incorporate some bamboo or acacia furniture. Natural materials have always had their place in home design, so you really can’t go wrong with that one. The macrame trend, unfortunately, hasn’t had such staying power so unless you love it, don’t worry about incorporating that one in each room.

    Another trend: personalized decor. Making your home unique and authentically yours is hot! So, whatever style or pieces you love, show them off and customize. Paint is an inexpensive way to show off your favorite color- on one wall as an accent or throughout the entire room. Textiles and artwork are great ways to ease into a trend without much commitment, or to show off your style while leaving the main house neutral if you plan to sell in the near future.

    Whatever your style, and the trends you decide you want in your home, we're here to help advise you on how any changes may impact the resale value, if that's a concern on your mind. Happy decorating, and have a fabulously prosperous 20's!
