Spring/ Summer 2020 is going to see a huge push towards a feeling of ‘togetherness.’ The politicians, banks and insurance companies have lost our trust. We are now looking to one another for that feeling of solidarity and security. ‘Word of mouth’ has become our most trusted advert as business’s realise how crucifying one bad review can be.
The colour pallet of this trend will be an explosion of our human diversity’s and cultures. It will celebrate craft and folk traditions, but re-interpreted and energised with new materials and a focus on sustainability. The terrazzo tile will become popular, but in a larger profile. Rag rugs and woven textiles such as rugs and baskets. Although instead of being made out of traditional cotton or wool, 100% recycled plastic will the material of choice.

Sustainability The New Trend In Interior Design?
The colour Pink will be vibrant and celebratory, almost a sugary hit of joy. It will used in block patches or woven alongside vibrant blues and striking oranges. This sugary hue will be loud and proud, youthful and vibrant. It will represent the new generations that do not play by the rules and thank goodness they do not!!!
This trend is also about the power of our youth. We only need to look at Greta Thunberg to be realise that the new consumers of the times do not sit and wait to have their fate decided. They put their faith in one another, rather than the leaders. They embrace peoples diversities and celebrate different cultures. They understand and realise how much more colourful, vibrant and rich the world can be if we protect it and embrace it. Rather than trying to claim it!
