Spring 2020 is now upon us, which means that many people will be looking to give their homes a refresh. The bedroom is often a great place to start as it’s usually the place we go to relax and recharge. With that in mind, here are some of the key trends for spring 2020 and some tips on how you can incorporate them into your home, even if you’re on a budget.
It’s common knowledge that homes are getting smaller. The good news is that there are lots of ways you can address this both practically (think multi-functional furniture) and aesthetically. Mirrors and metallics have been a favourite with interior designers for a long time now due to their reflectiveness, which makes spaces look bigger (and amplifies any natural daylight). Both are back for spring 2020 with an emphasis on copper and gold.
Warm neutrals in natural colours are still the mainstay of investment pieces such as beds. The spring 2020 seasonal shades are yellow through orange (especially ochre), light greens, blues, and fuchsia to purple. There are lots of ways you can use these as accent colours, the obvious ones being paint, wallpaper (including the peel-off sort for renters) and affordable textiles such as cushion covers.
Geometrics have been popular for a while now, but abstracts are on the way back, especially ones inspired by nature. In addition to paint, wallpaper and affordable textiles, one very easy and budget-friendly way to update your bedroom with this trend is just to look for wrapping paper with an abstract pattern. Just put a sheet in a picture frame and treat it as an art print.
The 1920s was an era of elegance and glamour, epitomised by Art Deco. It never went out of style but is set to get a big boost this spring 2020 and quite possibly further into the future. If you’re really into Art Deco then now could be the perfect time to treat yourself either to some original pieces or (more affordably) some pieces which reflect the Art Deco style.
If you’re not really into Art Deco (or don’t have the budget for it), you can still channel the overall style with opulent fabrics (such as crushed and distressed velvet) in bold colours, delicate curves and elegant lines. If none of that appeals, then you could give a passing nod to the trend with a well-chosen piece of artwork, which references an aspect of the 1920s which does appeal to you.
Interior designers are moving away from the traditional storage-orientated style of bedside cabinets and replacing them either with pieces which are lower on storage but higher on style or with pieces which offer alternative functionality. For example, replacing a traditional bedside cabinet with a chair or stool plus a bedside caddy still gives you a surface and some storage, but it also gives you a place to sit, for which you might not otherwise have had space in a small bedroom.
