Interior Design Trends For 2020 From Milan Design Week 2019

What is a trend? Why every year design experts write interior trend reports like this one after Milan Design Week is over? Seeing blog posts with titles like which trend is IN and which one is OUT is just ridiculous. We cannot set a starting date of a particular trend like, “Hey, this year marble is out so you may throw your table away” or “velvet is a huge trend in 2019”. Wait, wasn’t velvet dominant in 2017 or 2018? However, what is exciting about trend-seeking, is that we can observe how materials, colors, and textures will cohabitate with humans during the years to come as well as adapting it to our needs.

2018 Exterior Design Trends from the Experts

Every year brings new trends and must-have styles that we can’t wait to update our homes with. As you plan renovations for the new year, keep the following design trends in mind!

Use of Multiple Exterior Textures

Consumers are loving the look of multiple textures on the home exterior, which will make this an ongoing design trend in 2018.

If you are adding texture to an existing home, begin by evaluating its exterior color scheme and then choose siding materials (stone, brick, stucco) that have the same undertones of color. Lap siding, vertical siding and cedar shakes also add texture and can be combined in stunning ways.
