Trend 1: Neo Mint Paint
Pastel colors are for more than just the nursery these days. When used tastefully, they can easily brighten up a room (and your mood). According to trend forecasters, Neo Mint is the pastel to aim for to freshen things up a bit. It’s no surprise, really. The bright, clean feeling of the light green adds an undeniable airiness to the room. Neo Mint is also functional, as it pairs well with various color schemes that are also predicted to be popular in 2020 including pastel color blocking and grey accents.

Trend 2: Modular/Multi-Function Furniture
Lifestyles are changing, and home decor is a reflection of that. Minimalism will remain a go-to decorating method in 2020, and room layouts are changing to better suit the minimalist lifestyle. Formal dining rooms setups are disappearing altogether, making the living room serve multiple functions. Living rooms aren’t the only rooms predicted to become multi-purpose. More bedrooms are serving as home offices, dining rooms as activity rooms, the list goes on
The key to a multi-function room? Furniture that serves multiple purposes and/or saves you space. Luckily there are plenty of options so you can get creative. Keep it simple with something like a sofa bed (don’t worry, they’re much more fashionable now than the one your aunt has in her basement), or get a bit more futuristic with fold up appliances.

Interior Design Trend 3: Incorporating Elements of Nature
While industrial chic might still be around in 2020, it appears people will be leaning toward incorporating more nature into their homes. One way elements of nature will be incorporated into the home design is by using it to divide rooms. While open floor plans have been a hit in the past, they’re showing a decline in 2020 leaving the opportunity for things like room dividers made from natural materials.
Bathrooms are an ideal place for organic elements and prove to serve more use than just looks. For example, replacing your typical enamel bath with volcanic limestone not only makes a bath more relaxing thanks to the warm surface but can cut your use of hot water.
