For home renovators and design enthusiasts, we’ve rounded up the top 6 home interior design trends that will be making their way into Australian homes in 2020.
The Natural World
Organic materials that add warmth, tranquillity and a sense of connection with nature to the home will be increasingly popular for home renovation in 2020. Think timber, stone, rattan and clay for furniture and home décor, as well as flowers, twigs, leaves and other natural decorative elements. Natural materials and organic forms will be truly entrenched in our interior loving hearts.

Earthy Tones & Textures
Coinciding with the natural design trend, earthy tones and organic textures will take centre stage in home renovations. Warm oatmeal, clay, beige, rust and mustard will be popular colour choices for furniture and interiors, plus accents of soft green, blue and lavender. Look out for textural wool, cotton, felt and tweed for furniture upholstery and home décor.
