Take note of these trends if you're planning to give your home a makeover!

As we enter a new decade, our taste for design—home decor, fashion, and graphics—is also taking an expected shift. According to findings by Manila FAME, a major lifestyle and design trade show in the country, this year will see our homes filled with bright primary hues, blooming foliage, and handmade decor among others.

Need help redesigning your spaces to fit the modern decade? Check out 2020's top 10 design trends, below!

1. Classic blue

Taking precedence is Pantone's color of the year. A versatile color that represents dependability and stability, Classic Blue's expected to be everyone's go-to color to accent their home this 2020.

2. Kindercore

Contrasting the dark shade of Classic Blue are primary crayon hues and "childlike design," to add a playful twist to your home.

3. Biophilic Design

Biophilia, or the human tendency to want to be closely associated with nature, explains the growing trend of plant decor as of late. According to Manila FAME, our shift to Biophilic Design may also be executed indirectly with the "use of natural materials and organic shapes that mimic the natural object."

4. Crafty/Handmade

In a statement by Etsy.com, a known purveyor of hand-made goods, they expect 2020 to be a "Year of Purpose." This means trading in fast fashion for more mindful consumption a.k.a. buying handmade products from independent sellers.

5. Serif Typefaces

Classic Serif Fonts are back! This 2020, we're saying goodbye to graphic design's strict modernist ways, as we return to more charming, contemporary typefaces like the Sentinel, the Bodoni, and Cheltenham. Consider putting up framed wall art with these fonts to decorate your home.

6. Art Deco

As per Manila FAME's report, the 100-year-old Art deco movement will fast regain steam in the new decade as more consumers are attracted to its elegant style especially when it comes to luxury products.

7. Sustainable Resources

Of course, sustainability remains to be a growing trend as it soon hopefully becomes the norm in both design and fashion. Examples would be "cutting down on waste and fossil fuel resources," while shopping for products originating from discards and renewable energy.

8. Minimalism

It seems Marie Kondo's famous Konmari method of decluttering and adapting to a zero-waste lifestlye will continue to thrive this 2020. According to Manila FAME, while the idea of minimalism isn't new, they suggest that the next step would be to "incorporate a bit of personality and warmth in the form of a few pieces of carefully chosen art, travel mementos, and personal effects."

9. Foliage/Flora

A design aesthetic to try out this year is the contrast between masculine, modern furniture, as juxtaposed with large-scale leaf plants, along with palm prints, and stylized floral patterns.

10. Nostalgia Heritage 

As we enter a new decade, a wave of nostalgia that looks back to the past in inevitable. This year we're expected to see "patterns culled from archival illustrations and retro photographs make their way to decor."
