Neutral colors will be in once again this upcoming year. What can we say? Neutrals come in pretty classic and serene shades, and most importantly, they’re not super busy. If you’re thinking, “Big whoop! Neutrals are so plain,” then you’re wrong for several reasons. Neutral colors are whites with cool or warm undertones. We’re primarily looking at shades of gray and beige. Our prediction for 2020 sees warm neutrals making their way in, while cool neutrals fade into the background. Don’t underestimate the power of neutral decor either. It’ll make an excellent choice for your walls, but they’re also great options for furniture including sofas and bedding. Collected Interior Design consultants can help you figure out how to do neutral the right way.
Velvet may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s going to be steaming hot and trendy in 2020. It’s the perfect blend of luxury and comfort. When most people think of velvet, they’re often thinking about the old red velvet upholstery of yesteryear. This year and into the next, interior design firms are taking a deep dive into velvet design options, particularly for sofas. And, our color options are wider than ever. We’re talking vibrant blues, pinks, burnt orange and shades of taupe. The possibilities for velvet furniture in 2020 are endless.
