In the ever-evolving world of interior design, with each new season, we are always on the lookout for new trends and ideas that can be infused into our homes for a transformative look and feel. With the turn of the decade, professionals from the home décor industry have been sharing their views on what is in and what is out, but one thing remains for sure – luxury will never go out of style.

While planning a luxurious makeover for your home, if you are not ready to commit to a complete redesign, we suggest you begin with the most used space of the house: the living room.

As the living room is the central feature of a home, it should genuinely be reflective of your personality and taste as it will set the mood for the rest of the house. However, it can get tricky when it comes to knowing what’s au courant.

If you are looking for some trendy décor inspiration, we are talking about five ways to bring luxury to your living room in 2020.

1) Use Warm Color Palettes and Patterns

Interior designers have weighed in on what color palettes will be seen in the coming year, and what is certain is that we may finally be seeing the end of rose gold and millennial pink. The new color picks are the new neutrals as saturated hues, and warm tone takes center stage.

As you redesign your living room, opt for a bolder, more vibrant theme using royal greens, cobalt blues or turn to the Dulux color of 2020, Tranquil Dawn. Do not restrict yourself to just the walls as countertops, tiles and other surfaces are all opportunities to add a splash of color and elegance to your living room. To balance out more jeweled tones, you can opt for a combination of metallic accents or even incorporate some elegantly carved wooden furnishings.

When it comes to patterns and layering this year, the sky is the limit, and no rules apply. According to designers, we will see a variety of pattern mixing of different origin and scale. You can take inspiration from this trend in piecing together tabletop textures and textile designs.

2) Incorporate European-inspired furnishings

What can tie a room together is the furniture placed in it, and this year we are seeing designers incorporating imaginative, Europe-inspired themes while creating luxury furniture pieces. We will see more and more brands, embrace European features and silhouettes in their articles.

When it comes to sofas and settees, it is all about gentle curves in 2020. Homeowners are opting for curved furniture while shifting away from rectilinear, structured looks.

If you wish to bring this trend to your living room, look out for couches with sloping arms and an asymmetrical design to create a more soft, European environment. Look out for the Saarinen Womb Chair if you wish to complete the look of your living room. Both beautiful and functional, this item should be on your bucket list when reimagining your living room.

3) Hang large-scale wall décor

In instances where you need to add an extra oomph to your living room and are short on ideas, it is best to turn towards large-scale wall decorations. Not only do they add an element of luxury, but they can also serve as a focal point to lend the room some depth and character. Go for beautifully framed and expressive pieces if you are looking to bring out a sense of sophistication.

When looking for wall art, you should keep an eye out for impactful pieces that will make heads turn while being easy on the pocket. Places to go to when scouting for these unique items are thrift stores, flea markets, and local bazaars. A great idea to add your personal touch to the living room is to design and create your own large-sized painting and hang it in the room.

4) Use Natural Elements

In recent years consumers have had sustainability on their minds, and we predict this trend to be bigger than ever this year. There is a pull towards all that is eco-conscious chic with people preferring reclaimed materials, even second-hand items, to add personality to their living rooms.

Using the concept of biophilic design, this year’s designer pieces will move away from plastic, and we will see more natural materials and textures like cane, hemp, and jute making a comeback in the interior design sphere along with elements of luxurious greenery.

Incorporating such textures will add a touch of elegance to your living rooms without looking over the top. If you want to go for a more versatile look, then you can mix and match luxurious pieces for a more high-end impact.

5) Bring out the Heirlooms

What screams luxury more than a beautiful antique item? Certain rare pieces bring an old school charm that cannot be recreated by any item of modern furniture.

You can go for large-sized mirrors and chunky lamps, but even smaller items can do the job. Antique picture frames, boxes, and wall sconces can be incorporated to add a much-needed vintage flair to revamp your living room space.

This interior design trend can find its way into your living spaces without you having to spend a fortune on it. A good idea would be to keep an eye out for vintage items in discount and thrift stores that look like they have been flown in from the streets of Paris.

To sum it all up, in 2020, there has been a swing in the pendulum towards individuality, and we would say that this coming year is going to be all about bringing experience and personality to your interior design. Bring out your inner vibrancy by going for bold hues and patterns and opt for pieces that reflect your character. This way you will not go wrong when it comes to making your living room more luxurious.
