2020 retro trends combines the 70s curves and prints with a hint of 20's elegance resulting in a suburban meets Hollywood glam style.
The comforting familiarity of retro design is predicted to make a mature return for 2020.
With a mishmash of decades, 2020 retro trends will be a combination of 70s curves and prints with the hint of 20's elegance resulting in a suburban meets Hollywood glam style.
Think the three g's of glamour, glitz and gold you are well on your way to starting planning your interior scheme. Some of the most famed dining joints in London, such as the Ritz and Savoy epitomise the glamorous salon interior and combining this interior feel with updated modern palettes can bring that luxurious finish.
Set the tone with colour
Differing itself from previous retro trends, this year's look will combine the calming pastel palettes which have been growing in demand over the past months. Think pale blush pinks, neutral creams/whites, light dusty blues and Tranquil Dawn greens. Using a mixture of three key colours keeps this look sleek and cohesive with the adding of essential accessories in mixed metallics, glass and brushed metals.
Mirrors are a great addition to all homes and playing with multi mirrors on a feature wall or adding a large impact geometric mirror. Think cocktail boutique when it comes to dressing your room with accessories.
Don't be afraid of the dark! Retro styling fits perfectly with dark wood and matt wood finishes. Furniture works particularly well when finished in mixed materials such as brass details, glass tops and ceramic/marble tops.
Curve styled furniture and tables with contrasting tops in marbles, leather and glass recreate the salon feel.
When it comes to upholstered furniture, plush soft velvets fit this look well or combine with 70s patterns in updated colour palettes.
Brass, coppers and brushed metals work well with retro styles and inject some of the glam aspects that you associate with Hollywood looks.
Don't be afraid of adding heavy wood finishes as this adds some extra drama and contrast to the room.
Think glam glam glam! Depending on budgets, you can look at original crystal chandeliers or if you are looking for a more straightforward light solution then smoked glass finishes or wire metal lamps can add a jewel-like quality to your space.
Retro lends itself well with paint or light effect floors such as our Bolivia from our Luxury Trends Collection. Lido uses its natural tones and herringbone details to add that classic statement floor. If you are aiming for a very light colour scheme, such as chalk whites, then adding impact with a dark floor can inject the drama into your glamorous room. Calaisprovides a rich dark wood option that gives that natural grain appeal with subtle colour variations.
If you are looking for a trend that you can frequently update then keep with a neutral palette on walls, floors and furniture and update with accessories colours to keep your interior looking on-trend with essential colour palettes.
