1. Organic Shapes and Curves
I believe this year organic, fluid lines will start making an even bigger appearance in furnishings and accessories. From curved back sofas to mirrors that defy straight lines, I am into all of it. I like that it is an unexpected element that makes you look twice. It is also a great balance to the straight lines we’ve been seeing in very prevalent elements like mouldings that seem to have gained a firm foothold in the mainstream home.
Below are a few of my favourite spaces where organic shapes and smooth arches and curves really shine.

2. Checkered Everything
Checkered accents are everywhere. From classic checkered black and white tiled floors to cozy Moroccan rugs in racing car check. More and more, both my Instagram and Pinterest feed are showing me homes with checkered floors and accessories everywhere. This is one trend that I hope sticks around because I will never get tired of the impact it makes!
SHOP Checkered Decor
From reeded furniture to boucle upholstery, texture has entered the chat. I am one hundred percent on board! Instagram is full of DIY art projects with plaster and putty, my Etsy favourites are overflowing with candles, vases and pillows that feel as good as they look, and Moroccan rugs with their soft shag weave are everywhere. Have you seen the absolutely beautiful collection of rugs Athena Calderone recently launched with Beni Rugs? I had to include a glimpse below!
I think this circles back to my first trend prediction of organic shapes – texture is comforting and we could all use a lot of that in our lives these days! I also think it is one of the easiest ways to elevate a room beyond the ordinary.

Honourable Mention: Green Rooms
Green is without a doubt having a moment right now… again! I’m going to call this one an honourable mention since I was talking about trending emerald green rooms back in 2017 too! I still see so many, many beautiful green spaces populating my Pinterest and Instagram feeds, and of course, we have a green room of our own too.
From kitchen cabinets to nurseries, studies and powder rooms- you’ll find a shade of green for virtually any space. Personally, I lean towards the darker, moodier greens but I wouldn’t be against a sprinkling of sage at home.
So that’s it. These are my top 3 design trends for 2020. What do you think? Are you on board with any or all of them? What do you think will fare well this year and what do you hope will fade away? Leave me a comment below and tell me!
