This year resolve not to be intimidated by Bold Textures, Colours and Patterns And Prints

Like all trends, bold colors, bright patterns, and luxurious textures have cycled in and out of existence. At times they’ve been perceived as expensive and luxurious, at other times tacky, outdated, and maybe even a little scandalous, but they never truly leave the decor lexicon. 

However, what’ve noticed is a whole new way of incorporating this that lends a sophisticated and yet cozy quality to your living room.

Retro Decor is back! After all, it is the return of the 20s! 

Reuse, repair, or get antique. The sustainability conversation is taking over how we live, and design all aspects of our life, and 2020 promises to be the year that celebrates sustainable living room decor ideas. Mix these retro pieces with contemporary decor pieces to make sure they are relevant in 2020. As with anything, don’t overdo anything. 

So bring out your grandparents’ antique vases and vintage chairs in doses. It’s time to celebrate the old this year. 

Also, the waterfall trend is back; we’ve been seeing it everywhere. It’s a reboot of the benches from the ’70s, and the ’80s is what we hear. 

Here are some fresh ideas on how to incorporate retro elements in your living room. 

The easiest way is to start off with decor elements. A vase, a ladder doubled as a display counter to show off your green thumb.

Coffee Tables and chests are another one way of introducing a rustic element to the decor.

Using minimal decor accents is in focus but make it personal

Living room ideas for 2020, with a minimalistic twist.  Marie Kondo got us all in on the clear up the clutter to spark joy bandwagon. You don’t have to chuck all your things away, instead focus on arranging them to create clean lines.  Focus on thoughtfully curated knick-knacks, pop of color punctuated with grand elements, and singular accent pieces that keep the minimal and peaceful vibe in your living room.
