In decoration, trends change quite quickly. So much so that it can become difficult to follow. Every year, new trends appear while others suddenly seem a little less fashionable than before. To untangle yourself, we've created a real guide to everything IN and OUT in 2020 - so you can start your decorating projects with your head rested, knowing that you are well equipped.
IN: retro / vintage inspired furniture
They say everything ends up coming back into fashion one day. Well, it’s the turn of the 50s and 60s style to make a comeback. This year, we particularly like wood furniture in warm colors and with vintage details, such as pin legs. It is also the great return of gilding and velvet, which were all the rage at the same time. Chic and glamorous style is a yes!
OUT: the excessive industrial style
Gone are the industrial style that made rooms look like old factories! No need to have big plumbing pipes everywhere in our decor to be trendy. But beware, that doesn't mean the industrial style is dead completely. If you are a fan of this type of decoration, you can still integrate it into your rooms, but in a slightly more discreet way. Avoid overly sturdy materials and favor more refined ones, such as matte black finishes or brass. You will obtain a more desired result, which will last over time.
IN: Mixtures between colors, materials and textures
The mix and match is in the spotlight in 2020! Dare to mix colors, textures, shapes and even different styles to create a unique and harmonious decor, which will be adapted to your personality. And above all, avoid small sets of coordinating furniture and accessories. Mix together several materials like rattan, velvet or wood for a fabulous eclectic look.
OUT: Cold colors
In the last few years, grays and very cool white tones were really favorite colors. Now, warmer natural colors are favored more than grays and whites that are too impersonal. These latter colors are not totally prohibited, but they are preferred when they tend more towards taupe or cream.
Straight and symmetrical lines have long reigned in decor, but in 2020, curves are making a real difference. comeback! The rectilinear trend is slowly softening: we increasingly like to combine it with accessories and furniture with sinuous contours, for a more diversified result. It's time to add a mirror, a lamp or a round chair to your decor!
OUT: the accent color
We have all seen this famous piece which has the same color for ALL its accessories: curtains, cushions, lamps, throws… For the new decade, we stop using only one color as an accent. Rather, we vary by layering several shades that harmonize well together to obtain a personalized and homogeneous look.

OUT: bright red
Over the past decade, bright red has been an overused color in living rooms and dining rooms in Quebec. Today, if this color is still trendy, we like earth reds much more, which tend towards brown. These will warm up your rooms, in addition to giving them a chic and distinguished atmosphere.
But ultimately, the important thing is to follow your own tastes to create a decor in your image in which you will like to spend time. We really hope that this article will inspire you and above all, that it will guide you to create your new decor this year.
