If you read that headline and think, "Holiday trends? Is Amanda crazy? I finally vacuumed the last of the glitter out of the carpet..."
I get it!
But believe it or not, January is actually when my team starts the holiday magic. We take
scouting and sourcing trips to the country's design and decor markets where thousands (yes,
thousands!) of brands showcase their decor and lifestyle pieces. Imagine showroom after
showroom of inspired objects to catch the eye and imagination of designers like myself.
We Source Across the Country!
The Simple Home team visits industry shows in cities like Atlanta, New York, and Las Vegas twice
a year (winter/summer), and often High Point Market (spring/fall) to stay on top of trends so we
can keep our inventory fresh and up to date for our clients.
I recently attended the January Atlanta Market where my team hoofed it around 7 million
square feet of showrooms to see what holiday trends are going to be bigger than Santa's belly in
Christmas 2020 Trends
Here's a sneak peak at a few of the most holly-jolly decorating trends coming for Christmas
Gnomes - Those impish little creatures with the bulbous noses and stocking caps pulled over
their eyes add charm to mantels and end tables.
Velvet Figurines - The rich color and texture of velvet engages the senses—especially sight and
touch! We found these could be fun as strategic accents.
Kitschy Christmas Décor - Color, color, color! Playful, cheeky accents keep the holidays merry
and bright. No traditional red and green in this trend. Instead expect magentas, teals, limes, and
so many other colors you wouldn't expect in holiday decor.
Glitter Snow Globes - Dazzling, sparkling, illuminating! These snowglobes were in every
showroom we visited. Instead of a snowglobe you pick up and shake, these globes had a
constant movement of glitter swirling about.
Sloths/Hedgehogs - Why should reindeer have all the holiday fun? Make way for these
unexpected creatures to add whimsy to your holiday decorating scheme.
Decor 2020 Trends
And since we do have months until it's time to put up the tree and lights again, let's recap
trending themes for interior accents in 2020...
Terrazzo - It has moved from the world of flooring to accent pieces. This composite material
features the same pseudo-industrial style of cement but with added texture and color thanks to
chips of marble, quartz, granite, or glass mixed in. Terrazzo showed up in frames, vases,
furniture, and even lighting!
Deep Blue & Indigo - A gorgeous color scheme ideal for an accent wall, door, or a theme color
for select decorative objects in a room.
Millennial Pink Moves Into Coral Tones - This pale shade is classic and mature; not teenybopper
bubble gum pink. But look for it to scoot a smidge warmer to coral tones. Accessories in this
shade are an easy way to bring a feeling of warmth into any room.
Black/White/Gold - It's celebratory, yet neutral...classic, but somehow updated. The
Black/White/Gold trio just works! Choice accents can be incorporated into even the most
functional spaces for your residents.
Farm Chic - Modern farmhouse is still a thing! But with a slight update: expect cleaner lines and
fewer country-antique accents. What stays? Comfy furniture, select salvaged materials, and a
color palette of cream, light green, and cozy browns.
Now comes the fun part!
I review (read: obsess over) all my notes from the Atlanta show to curate a well-stocked
inventory at our easy-to-browse online store. https://shopthesimplehome.com/
