The main thing to remember in 2020 is that pretty much anything goes. The more individual and original your interior the more lasting impression it will make. Having said that, it’s important that you love it. It doesn’t work if it appears too contrived, it must reflect your personality and your vision.

It’s all about statement features, such as funky rugs, personal memorabilia or even for the more creative personal artwork. Although adding some whacky, personal touches is important, there are some general trends in 2020 that you can follow.

Many people are aiming to find long-term fixtures and furnishings, in order to minimize waste.

Anything with a more timeless style will be more popular, something that doesn’t go out of fashion. Recycled or sustainable materials are also more trendy than synthetic ones.
