At the start of every year, we get excited about changes in interior decorating and we’ll look online to learn about trends, colours, and styles. 


We know you’re curious about what’s happening (or predicted to happen) this year, so the team at Smitty’s has put together a blog outlining the key interior decorating trends for 2020. 


It’s a new year and a new decade! What does that mean? It’s time for a new look! 


Make Your Home Welcoming with a Fireplace



Your home should be a place where you, your family, and your friends feel welcome. Doesn’t this room look welcoming?! It looks like the perfect place to relax, read a book, or entertain guests. Aside from the comfortable sofas and chairs, the main reason why this room looks like a place you’d want to spend time is the fireplace. 


Adding a fireplace to your living room doesn’t just make the room feel cozy, it makes the room more welcoming.


A fireplace is the perfect way to create a focal point, and you don’t need a hearth to do it. You can install an electric fireplace with or without a mantel, on a wall, or even include it as part of a media console!


Dimplex electric fireplaces are the perfect way to instantly make your room more welcoming. Available in a wide range of styles and options, you can transform the feeling of your room without worrying about a large renovation, like installing a wood or gas fireplace with a chimney stack and mantle.


Add Wood & Natural Elements

Adding wood and natural elements into your decor is a trend that continues in 2020. Let’s face it — quality wood furniture never goes out of style. Wood looks beautiful as it ages. Every scratch or mark adds character and tells a story — and if you want to change its look, you can refinish it with paint or stain.


Hooker Furniture’s Skinny Console Table is gorgeous and functional, and definitely fulfills the trend of adding wood into your interior decor. You can place it in your living room behind your sofa, along a wall in your dining room or office, or add it to your front entryway.


(Kalora area rug)


If you’re looking for a natural element other than furniture, consider adding a jute carpet. Jute is a vegetable fibre that is spun into threads that are very strong, resulting in a coarse weave that has a natural look and a warm appeal. Kalora offers a range of jute area rugs in various sizes to suit any space. 


"Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful,
or believe to be beautiful". 

— Sarah Richardson, Designer

If you’re looking for usefulness and beauty, and you want to refresh your interior bedroom decor, then have a look at Magnussen’s Tinley Park bedroom set


Select one piece or purchase the entire set. This gorgeous, DoveTail Grey coloured series is sure to create a welcoming, relaxing, and inviting bedroom. 


Blue Is Back


(Decor-Rest sofa style 3179)


2020 marks the triumphant return of deeper blue colours! No more pastels or wishy washy tones — dark blue is where it’s at. In fact, Pantone’s colour of the year is Classic Blue.


“Instilling calm, confidence, and connection, this enduring blue hue highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era.” — Pantone


If you’re looking for an elegant way to update your interior decor, consider adding deep blue. Decor-Rest makes a beautiful sofa, available in deep blue, that is flexible enough to accommodate virtually any space or need.


This 3179 style sofa comes in condo size, full size sofa, queen bed pull-out, or even as a chair or loveseat. Customizable, you can select from a wide range of fabrics, leathers, and finishes to get the perfect look for your home.


The team at Smitty’s is looking forward to 2020 and to helping you with your interior decorating questions. Visit us in-store and meet with one of our certified interior decorators — they’ll help you find the perfect updates for your home.
