The 2020s are here to bring us back to nature. Whether it’s color inspired by the sunrise or the “infinite night sky,” or new ways to bring the outside in (hello, garden rooms!), many home design trendsetters and spotters are in the same space when it comes to predicting what’s in and upcoming for the new decade. And that space is being at one with the environment. Trend No. 1: A Color Explosion Pantone’s choice of Classic Blue comes with a nod to the changing decade, explaining that “this enduring blue hue highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era.” Also going with a blue for its color of the year is Sherwin-Williams, which chose Naval, a rich, deep blue. The paint company says that while navy has been done before, this is a “confident” tone that “gives a nod to Art Deco influences” fused with the “awe-inspiring power of nature – from the infinite night sky to the mysterious depths of the sea – bringing navy out of its comfort zone to usher in an empowering new year and fresh decade of change.” Trend No. 2: The green theme You can take your garden room a step beyond with your own indoor pond, fountain or waterfall; the Pinterest 100 trend report found searches for indoor water fountains are up 917%. So a garden room filled with plant life that gets plenty of sunlight and features a nice burbling fountain is the type of Zen experience we’re looking for in our homes. Trend No. 3: Woven wonders The caning or weaving of flexible natural materials like rattan, wicker and bamboo was noted on materials throughout the most recent High Point Market event.
