Interior Trends 2020

We’ve teamed up with Interior Designer Gemma Shield to choose our favourite interior trends for 2020. As with fashion, we see new home decor trends emerge each season. With influences from the runway, art and film, and the world around us, these trends tempt us to update our homes, keeping them fresh and stylish.


"In 2020 we'll be going back to our roots and connecting with nature. Combine an earthy colour palette of greens, blues and terracotta with handmade, eco-friendly furniture and natural materials like hemp and bamboo.”

The Biophilic Design colour palette includes greens, neutrals and earthy tones

Key Colours: Moss Green, Teal, Earthy Browns, Putty, Rust

Key Materials: Bamboo, Wood, Hemp, Recycled Glass


"Traditional design with a twist. Blending elements of decorative Chinoiserie with contemporary details such as furniture with clean lines, natural materials and modern art.”
