Whether you’re decorating your current home or looking for a new one, you’re probably wondering… what’s in style these days? Which ideas are just a flash in the pan, and what trends will stick around for awhile? After all, no one wants to change up their house just to find out that what they’ve picked is dated a year later.

Although no one has a crystal ball, the following home decor trends seem the most likely to happen based on the collective buzz in the home decor world.

1. Eclectic Design

As more and more people become conservation-minded, we’ll see less waste and fewer cookie-cutter catalog rooms. Instead, people will give old belongings and even hand-me-down collectibles new life by pairing them with a few new pieces.

2. Having Fun In The Bathroom

People always want to splurge a little, and the bathroom is a great place to do that. Since these rooms are small, you can dress them up on the cheap — a small amount of wallpaper or a splash of pricey tile goes a long way in a small space. You spend so much of your time in the bathroom every morning… why not enjoy it?

3. Greenery (The Real Stuff)

Faux plants are out (big time!), but their real counterparts are more hip than ever. Fill your home with plants to get a vibrant, lush feeling. This change won’t even cost you very much green.

4. Colorful Kitchens

This trend started to pick up momentum in the late 2010s, but we’re seeing more and more of it in the interiors mags, so in all likelihood it’s here to stay. If you really love a color, then why not commit to it? Blue, green, or even red cabinets will make you smile every time you see them.

5. Everything Old Is New Again

From rustic tables to antique art, pieces that are aged (or at least look aged) will be big throughout the 2020s. Need to add something old-but-new to your home? Hit up your local antique shops and flea markets; the finding will be half the fun.

6. Mix It Up

Metals, textures, patterns… it’s all good. In the 2020s, you CAN mix metal finishes, you CAN layer pattern on pattern, and you CAN have multiple textures going on. Rather than a perfect-but-plain interior, this creates a luxurious but lived in look, and that’s a good thing. Just remember: mix and match tastefully or it quickly becomes too much of a good thing.

7. Be One With Nature

From real wood details to textured stones, from water features to corals and crystals, natural accents are everything for the 2020s. No more plasticky, glossy, impersonal hotel type looks! Instead, we want our homes to look like we’ve brought the outdoors in.
