If there is one way to describe the interior design trends we will see more of in 2020, it’s that anything goes. Strong geometric patterns, new interpretations of neutrals and texture everywhere are just a few of the trends we are incorporating into our projects.
Color as a neutral: This trend started popping up on Instagram, with lots of images of navy blue cabinetry, a few seasons ago. Going a step further, watch for saturated hues of green, red and gold jewel tones on walls, tile and in furnishings.
Layered patterns: As with fashion, there are no rules for mixing different patterns in a single outfit. In homes, walls, windows and floors can all have their own unique pattern while forming a cohesive look.
High contrast design: Monochromatic spaces feel fresh with bold accents. Bright whites juxtaposed with dark grey, rich black, and those deep jewel tones like red add depth to a space.
Natural materials: Marble especially will be a major player in kitchen and bath materials, as well as accessories and lighting for the rest of the house.
Textured Surfaces: Add dimension to your space by incorporating texture on walls or ceilings. Wallpaper, faux finishes and textured paint can all be used to achieve a certain look. Added bonus: textures hide drywall imperfections

From lavender to plum I am smitten with purple and am thrilled to see Pantone’s 2018 color of the year pick:
18-3838 Ultra Violet
According to Pantone, Ultra Violet communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future. Purple has also long been symbolic of counterculture, unconventionality, and artistic brilliance. Ultra Violet has a mystical, spiritual quality attached to it as it is often associated with mindfulness practices such as meditation.

Know the wheel: The color wheel is an essential tool to use when developing color schemes.
Color schemes fall into three categories: complementary, analogous, and neutral. Complementary schemes combine a primary and secondary color from opposite sides of the color wheel like blue and orange. Analogous colors are either warm such as reds, oranges, and yellows or cool with greens, blues, and violets. Neutrals are colors not included in a color wheel, such as browns, whites, and blacks.
Coordinate paint colors with the rooms furnishings. Highlight a favorite painting or rug by letting it inspire your color scheme. The trick is to choose a paint color that blends with the pieces instead of matching it exactly.
