2020 is officially upon us—which means not only are we in a new year, but a new decade. And with the dawning of this new decade comes the opportunity to embrace the interior design trends that will make your home feel fresh and new—and, just as importantly, leave behind the trends that feel tired and dated.
In a recent article from realtor.com, design experts shared their picks for the interior design trends you may want to leave behind in the new year. Some of the trends to ditch in 2020 include:
1. Accent walls. Accent walls were all the rage—but instead of going bold on a single wall, 2020 will see bold, rich hues and fun, patterned wallpaper expanding to cover all four walls. As the old saying goes, go big or go home!
2. Rose gold and millennial pink. Millennial pink and rose gold were go-to hues in 2019—but design experts expect to see bolder shades of pink take center stage in 2020.
3. All things farmhouse. Farmhouse style has been everywhere in recent years (in large part thanks to Chip and Joanna Gaines of Fixer Upper fame). But it looks like this trend has finally run its course—and homeowners will be ditching their farmhouse decor for more unique, eclectic interiors in the upcoming year.
So, what does that mean for you? If you’re thinking about selling your home, it’s important to keep your finger on the pulse of what’s trending (and what’s not) in interior design. That way, you can stage your home in a way that feels fresh, modern, and on-trend—which will appeal to buyers and help you sell.
