Your Guide to 2020 Home Design Trends


From home decorating to home staging, 2020 is shaping up to be a year where the unusual is in high demand. Statement pieces, handcrafted details, and bold maximalist murals are all ways to catch a potential homebuyer’s eye this year—or just make your new place feel a little more “you”. We put together a list of the top trends interior decorators are recommending for the beginning of the decade—and don’t worry, “farmhouse chic” has dropped off the list once and for all.


Here are a few of our favorite 2020 home design and decorating trends:


Vintage Touches



Sterile modernism has come and gone. These days, homebuyers and guests crave a warmer and more lived-in look. Achieve this look with refurbished furniture, vintage accents, and old-fashioned light fixtures or appliances.


Geometric Shapes



Circles, squares, and triangles aren’t uncommon accents on just about anything these days. Take the geometric trend to another level by focusing on a single shape in each room, incorporating a few subtle accents using the same shape throughout. The result can be as subtle or as bold as you desire. 





These aren’t your grandma’s floral wallpapers. Floral this year is back with a modern twist, including bigger patterns, metallic accents, and strong colors. Consider a bright floral wallpaper in bathrooms, children’s bedrooms, and even as an accent wall in a living area.





Show off that personality! Bigger is better these days, so don’t be afraid to splurge on a bright statement sofa, mix colors and textures, and fill those walls with every piece of artwork you’ve ever admired.





In our busy and oversaturated lives, we continue to gravitate towards neutral tones in the home. Grey, brown, beige, and cream are all neutral shades that mimic natural tones and can help make your home a relaxing haven from the world.


These are just a few of the trends we’re beginning to see emerge this year. Whether you’re decorating your new home or looking to sell, incorporating a few of these design elements will truly set your home apart. If you’re ready to upgrade (or downsize!), don’t hesitate to contact Move-Up America today.
