One of the best ways to usher in a new era is to make some home decor changes. You’ll start 2020 off with a new outlook as well as a beautiful new home - but where on earth to begin?

Doing some research into the top trends expected to make big waves over the coming 12 months is wise - and luckily for all those keen to prioritise interior design and home improvements in the new year, Pinterest has just revealed what it expects to prove popular in the near future.

More conscious consumption is expected to be a big trend for 2020 and beyond, and where home decor is concerned this will translate into a thrifty approach to decorating, with searches for thrifted home decor up by 308 per cent. Ocean trash art is also going to be big news, with pollution turned into something beautiful - certainly an interesting idea!

An increased interest in wellness is also expected, with people keen to think about this in an everyday way, finding habits to counteract feelings of stress and anxiety. In a home setting, this could be looking into feng shui (with searches for pins on the social networking site up 137 per cent), principles of design that are intended to help you destress and re-energise your living spaces.

Other top trends for those keen to revolutionise their homes in the new year include garden rooms, an extra living space outside to help you get back to nature without having to expose yourself to the elements if you don’t want to. There are some stunning examples of these rooms on the site, so it’s certainly worth having a look to see what can be achieved.

Home theatres, granny pods and audio rooms are also trends that are picking up at the moment, so perhaps do some research into these if you like the sound of any of these as well.

If you’re keen to update your colour palette at home, you might also want to check out Pantone’s colour of the year for 2020, which has been named as Classic Blue.

Executive director of the Pantone Color Institute Leatrice Eiseman said of the shade: “[It is] a solid and dependable blue hue we can always rely on. Imbued with a deep resonance, Classic Blue provides an anchoring foundation.

“A boundless blue evocative of the vast and infinite evening sky, Classic Blue encourages us to look beyond the obvious to expand our thinking, challenging us to think more deeply, increase our perspective and open the flow of communication.”

It’s apparently easily relatable, non-aggressive and perfect for relaxed interaction - so if that sounds like it would work for you and your home, now’s the time to start creating some mood boards to see how it could all come together in the new year.
