Make 2020 the year you start — or continue to grow — your art collection. If you want to make a serious statement, then try incorporating one of the hottest home decor art trends of 2020. The following 7 Art trends were selected from Emma Bazilian Nov 26, 2019 post Trends to Watch in 2020, According to Our Next Wave Designers and Juliana Labianca Dec 17, 2019 post 15 Home Decor Trends You’re About to See Everywhere in 2020.
1. Textured Art
“I love art with dimension because it adds an extra layer to the home and it’s a wonderful discussion point,” says Boca Raton interior designer Caroline Rafferty. “That three-dimensional quality really shows that it was designed and made by an actual person.
We’ve been experiencing a return to truly custom and handmade, and I think we’ll see even more of an appreciation for this as we move into 2020.”
2. Subtle Luxury
“I feel that interiors, much like the beauty market, are trending towards clean and luxe,” says Tharon Anderson, who layered of natural materials in a neutral palette for this living room. “Subtle patterns, textures, and modern shapes, ‘trying but not trying to hard’—sort of a rich-bohemian vibe.”
3. Trending Colors
The 2020 Pantone Color of the Year is Classic Blue. Saffron is a sophisticated hue that looks beautiful combined with shades of blue.
“Navy blue provides the perfect amount of contrast for interiors and exteriors in both traditional and modern home styles,” says interior designer Kerrie Kelly, founder of Kerrie Kelly Design Lab. “Whether a kitchen island gets a quick upgrade or a room gets a dramatic new look with contrasting white trim and woodwork, the shade provides a stately look without going completely black”.
William Cullum, a senior designer at Thomas Jayne, is all-in on mosaics. “I think that after touching a slick iPhone, people are craving the texture, patina and age of something that feels firm and permanent,” he explains. “Mosaics are that: you see them through almost every period of decorative arts, and to me, they connote luxury and whimsy.”

5. Cannabis Themed Design
Jean Liu, who was named one of House Beautiful’s 10 Next Wave Designers, also points to an uptick in cannabis-inspired rooms in the wake of expanding marijuana legalization. “From the wellness room by Iris Danker at this year’s Hamptons Holiday House to Flavor Paper’s scratch ‘n sniff ‘Cannabliss’ wallpaper, we expect these plants to be making their way into homes across the country,” she says.
6 Greek Revival
Time to brush up on your ancient history, says Jean Liu: “Between the Greco Roman-inspired Alta Sartoria collection Dolce Gabbana debuted in Sicily this summer and Luke Edward Hall’s nearly released book Greco Disco, expect Greek and Roman details and motifs to make their way into the world of interior design.”
7 Kitchen Art
“There’s always a focus on making the kitchen a room in the house and not a machine for cooking,” says interior designer Breeze Giannasio. “That can be accomplished by hanging art in the kitchen, or using open shelves to display items that show off your personality.”
