Top Interior Design Trends of 2020: From Home Offices to Two-Tone Kitchens


Homeowners stuck inside because of Covid-19 are analyzing every detail, from fixtures and color schemes to how each room is utilizedBy Alina Dizik

There is an upside to spending more time at home: researching your dream house, down to the cabinet handles.

To decipher what dream home means in a global-pandemic world, Mansion asked the editors of three house-centric websites—Houzz, Decorilla and The Real Houses of IG—to identify their most popular images from the first half of the year. We examined photos that home-décor followers are clicking, liking and scrolling through to better understand today’s trends.

The verdict? It’s in the details. 


People simply have more time and are going to greater lengths to plan out, and to seek inspiration for, their dream home, says Kate Rumson, founder of The Real Houses of IG, a home-and-design Instagram account with 2.4 million followers. Many are in the process of building their homes, she adds, and they are committed to making perfect choices, no matter how small. Questions about wall colors, window treatments and furniture that appear in the background of photos she posts are frequent fodder. “My followers do care about every detail,” she says.

These days, many are ushering in brass-adorned kitchen cabinets and high-contrast living rooms, and are rethinking office areas. They seem to be saying goodbye to the all-white kitchen, acoustically challenged open-floor plan and unequipped outdoor space.


Homeowners also are moving away from a single style of home throughout—be it contemporary or farmhouse—toward mixing and matching décor elements, says Houzz editor Anne Colby.

The company had a 58% surge in demand for home-renovation and design professionals in June 2020, compared with June 2019.

“We’ve seen particularly strong interest in major outdoor projects,” says Ms. Colby.

Today’s homeowners are mindful of overall size, choosing realistic footprints. “We’re not in a period of economic optimism…the dreams are somewhat different,” says Catherine Wallack, an architectural archivist at the University of Arkansas and a trained architect. “The marketed dream home is something that’s aspirational.”

Color Trends We're About to See Everywhere This Fall

While we're just settling into summer right now, there’s no question we fashion folks are already looking ahead to some of the biggest trends set to dominate come September. Today we’re focusing on color trends (my personal favorite subject) and looking to the f/w runway to determine which hues will reign supreme for the rest of the year.

“The color palette for fall/winter 2020 highlights our desire for versatile, timeless color—reflecting a less-is-more mindset,” explains Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, “colors whose timelessness and versatility convey a level of functionality and at the same time lend themselves to unique color statements that stand out.”

From rich and deep burgundy hues to asphalt gray and unexpected pops of orange, below we’re sharing the biggest color trends we’re about to see everywhere. Get ahead of the curve by shopping the hues right now.


Red, Red Wine

We're no strangers to seeing burgundy in fall, and this year, we saw the gamut of shades, from sultry, cherry reds to deep and dark wine hues. Robust reds were seen on head-to-toe looks in a plethora of textures and fabrics from leather capes to relaxed knits, adding a sophisticated touch to fall ensembles.
