It’s that time of year again, when we take a moment to reflect on the year behind and take a few wild guesses about what’s still in store. And for our Style Team at Modsy, that means analyzing the home design trends of 2019 to see which will stick around and which will go.
To do so, we pulled the numbers on what our Modsy customers were searching, liking, and buying from their designs. This year we also surveyed thousands of people from our amazing design community to get a little more insight on the 2019 styles you loved and the ones you loved to hate.
On that note, we’re thrilled to unveil our 2nd annual Trend Report! The data doesn’t lie, but it sure does like to surprise. Ready to take a scroll down 2019 memory lane? Keep reading for the inside scoop on a sampling of our most interesting findings. You can even take a peek at the full report to dive deeper!Read The Full Report
Home Design Trends By Room
Living rooms are the place to be! This was easily the most-popular room our Modsy customers wanted to design. Master bedrooms came in a close second. No major surprises here, as those are the two spaces most of us spend the majority of our time in. Why go out when you can stay in?
And it looks like this pattern will continue into 2020. 37% of our design survey respondents said they were most looking forward to designing their living room while 23% said bedroom.
Why? Most people cite a not-so-recent move. 40% said “I haven’t touched that space since I moved in, and it’s finally time to give it the attention it deserves.” New year, new room!
Color Home Design Trends
We surveyed our community of design enthusiasts and got the scoop on their favorite (and least favorite) colors for home decor.
Would you decorate with the following colors?
- Neutrals – 79% said yes
- Blues – 61% said yes
- Black/Grey – 52% said yes
- Earth Tones – 52% said yes
- All White – 51% said yes
Neutrals for the win! And it’s not hard to see why. These muted hues are a safe bet for any home, and when paired with pops of color in accessories you can change your style as often as you change your mind. Not to mention they inspire a sense of calm and can help you feel relaxed at home.
The Styles You Loved
We asked our design enthusiast community which styles and trends they loved in 2019. One of the most-popular responses? Modern Farmhouse style, with 35% of people saying they love this look and hope it sticks around.
Thanks to home design influencers and shows like “Fixer Upper,” this style has had a major moment in the trend spotlight. And deservedly so. The Modern Farmhouse look combines elements of mid-century modern (a style that’s been popular for over a decade now) with more casual and vintage elements. It’s a fresh take on an already-popular look.
2020 Home Design Trend Predictions
So what about next year? We thought you’d never ask! We have lots of ideas about what’s going to be in for 2020.
A New Twist on Modern
We expect Bohemian and Organic Mid-Century Modern styles to be everywhere next year. We’re already seeing a softer, earthier side of the mid-century look come out to play and less of an emphasis on what we call “Mad Men” Mid-Century Modern.
Minimalist Maximalist Style
This trend is exactly what it sounds like—a style that plays with the unlikely combo of a minimalist’s design principles and a maximalist’s love of patterns, colors, textures, and all things over-the-top. We can’t wait to see more of this in 2020.
