Society in 2020 will definitely be influenced by climate change and mass migration toward the Western world. In the context of digitization production and an already developed Eco-awareness, these transformations will have repercussions on our way of living.
Changes will be accompanied by the fragmentation of families, which will divide property assets into larger and smaller housing units. These societal changes will lead to the formation of two main customer groups that differ from each other and create two trends in interior design: Eco-essential and root.
In 2020, we will see a new approach to climate change in pollution with an ongoing search for clever ideas that can be applied to our cities and homes. The Eco essential design will be clean and essential, and the materials are as sustainable as possible. This style will introduce a concept of equal beauty for everyone.
Dictated by the increasingly important concept of sharing and rent, structures and furnishings will be designed to be replaced over time by the occupants. They will have to be impersonal beautiful, and easy to use.
Modularity will have a vital role in the design and everything will be designed with removable and mobile partitions, such as bookcases and modular kitchens.
Ceramics will play a key role because they are produced by systems in which waste is recycled to ensure almost zero impact. This style will be characterized by industrial trends, low contrast cement and resins. Worn materials, oxidized materials and shade variations will also be present in large sizes to minimize the impact of grout lines.
In this trend, we also find clay and terracotta, but plain tiles will be much more prevalent. Eco essential houses will have a strong connection between their interior and green spaces, which will give a significant impetus to coordinate in-out collections.
Mutual colors will dominate and could also provide concentrated solutions for customizing replaceable surfaces.
The geometric design will be accentuated by Aberdeen and petroleum colours. Iridescent aquamarine and beige furnishings will accompany walls with the intense color of mud and sugar paper.
The protectionist policies of Western and Europe and mass migrations will increase interest in far-off cultures, favoring the contamination of styles, while at the same time, awakening nostalgia for our traditions.
In the root design, the contamination of styles merges with the desire to return to the past. People will have a strong feeling of home customization. The style will be characterized by increasingly smaller but patterned surfaces.
Homes will be richly furnished with an abundance of natural materials, such as wallpaper with exuberant floral patterns, including exotic foliage, highly defined geometries, colonial interiors with leather and colored and patterned tiles, and even French styles with antique mirrors, incorporating the use of unfinished rectangular terracotta and brick.
Surfaces and woven fabrics will be highly processed and often also unfurnished. Accessories in Hoorn grids, and surfaces in brass and copper, also present will be cork carved woods and woven straw.
The root trend will influence the size of floor tiles, leading to the predominance of small and rectangular sizes, as well as 20 by 20 pattern tiles as a link to the last century.
With a return to dark wood and pickled woods, the Terracotta style will become established, including in more modern colors, such as gray and ivory.
The root trend will introduce warm colors, and even small spaces will need to be luxurious.
Shades of Earth and wood opaque, Velvets, copper, and brass surfaces will be prevalent.
Antique pink, Bordeaux, and beige to recall our roots contrasting with violet and bright mustard influenced by migrant influxes.
