Focus on Home Décor 2020
- Soft Tropics
- Oasis of Plants
- Gleaming Gold
- Special Days In November
Ideal Home Magazine UK announced home decor trends for 2020 this week with the main objective for decorating being “to give the house a comfortable look inspired by nature”. Colours appear to be: Leaf green, Mustard, Pale pink and Navy blue against neutral backgrounds. “Soft Tropics” seemed to be a key theme and included Dulux’s paint colour of 2020 - Tranquil Dawn. Favourite fabrics and materials for our homes showed velvet, wood and pale leather.
Oasis of Plants
The designers stated, "Our homes continue to be an oasis of plants, as the trend for bringing nature into our homes grows and grows. Palm prints are the key motif throughout whether real or as part of a fabric or wallpaper design". Palm Pot and Peony has followed this theme for some time and so we are delighted that the decorators are saying, “Bold wallpapers, such as tropical leaves are going from strength to strength this season. Vibrant bold prints can breathe new life into rooms, big or small”
The designers suggest lantern style lighting and picking rich tones for key pieces, such as royal blue or ruby, plus metallic touches - “gleaming gold, burnished copper, brushed brass and bronze”. In addition, they say, “metallic materials can be adapted to decorate any style of home”.
The November Birth Flower is Chrysanthemums or “mums” as they are more commonly known. They are one of the most widely cultivated flowers in the world. It represents cheerfulness and love.
Topaz is a birthstone that can be of various colours from blue and pink to an intense red/orange. The other stone associated with November is the Citrine found only in orange. They are a symbol of long-lasting friendship.
Special Dates in November
5 November Guy Fawkes Night also known as Bonfire Night
This marks the anniversary of the discovery of a plot to overthrow the King in 1605 by thirteen young men who planned to blow up the Houses of Parliament. Among them was Guy Fawkes, Britain's most notorious traitor.
11 November Remembrance Day
It is a special day set aside to remember all those men and women who were killed during the two World Wars and other conflicts. The eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month marks the signing of the Armistice, on 11 November 1918, to signal the end of World War One. Remembrance Sunday is held on the second Sunday in November, which is usually the Sunday nearest to 11 November. Special services are held at war memorials and churches all over Britain.
