Interior Design Trends For Spring 2020

We like to keep our finger on the pulse of all things design related here at Unidrape, and with some great new fabric collections now available in-store, we have researched what’s hot for the new season:

High Contrast Rooms

We love this dramatic yet elegant look. Using a light neutral background with a strong, dark accent colour such as Navy or Charcoal, this style can be used in both modern and period properties with great success. Full-length curtains in a striking, dark geometric Art Deco print or texture can add grandeur to either a living room or a bedroom.

Furniture works well as an eclectic blend of period pieces with contrasting upholstery or cushions, and alongside more modern pieces. The fabrics used in this room are from the new Iliv Astoria collection, where a balance of small-scale pattern repeats are teamed with larger geometric designs. Lighting is kept simple, with accent lamps placed to create a variety of lighting effects.

Floral Prints

From wallpaper to curtain fabrics and bedding, the new florals range from bright tropicals to muted country gardens. Some of our favourite florals this season are the new Botanist collection, with delicately embroidered fabrics teamed with prints and soft checks. This style works perfectly with wooden Venetian blinds or plantation shutters to create a restful sanctuary with a colour palette inspired by nature.

Luxurious to both the eye and touch, we love to use velvet on soft furnishings in rich colours! From a sofa to a footstool, or a roman blind to wall to wall curtains, we have a vast selection of velvets in different weights and finishes to be able to incorporate in any design scheme. We love mixing fabric textures, and feel as, in this picture, it only makes this beautiful velvet sofa more inviting!

Statement Lighting

Lighting is always an important consideration in any room design. We always consider the amount and type of light source required on any of our projects, but with some stunning new light fittings available, we think that designing a room with the lighting as the focal point can pay dividends. With architectural shapes and a wide variety of materials, statement lighting can inspire an entire room scheme.

Adding Accent Colours to a Neutral Scheme

Bright colours aren’t for everyone, and we still love neutral rooms! So much can be added with beautiful textures, and even small areas of colour can really lift a grey or beige palette. Something as simple as new cushions can make a huge change in the aesthetics of a room; and are a great way of intruding accent colours without redecorating.
