Out with the old and in with the new. Like the runway, home trends are always evolving and changing from year to year. Whether your style is mid-century modern, rustic, boho chic, or even traditional, we are sure that these trends will fall in line with your style and you can easily merge these into your homes or DIY projects.   

Here are a few of our favorite trends we are looking forward to in 2020.


Goodbye cool tones, hello earth tones. Expect to see more olive greens, chocolate browns, and deep yellows; all colors that draw inspiration from the outdoors. Don't be afraid to try this trend via your accessories for a budget-friendly decor update. 




  • Warm Tones¬†- Earth tones are typically those inspired from nature; think muddy browns and tans, mossy greens or golden mustards. These colors are warm, friendly and versatile.
  • Incorporate Wood¬†-¬†We make it a rule to always add wood to a space, it adds instant warmth. There are endless options from which to choose: wood floors or cabinetry, wood beams, and wood furniture or lighting.
  • Take Inspiration Outdoors¬†-¬†When in doubt go outside. When considering colors, if it doesn‚Äôt exist in nature it probably isn‚Äôt a fit. Nature‚Äôs mix of textures and subdued colors are your best guide.

In 2019, we began to see a rise in rattan furniture and lighting becoming increasingly popular. The woven, organic nature of rattan adds texture to your space, bringing depth and warmth.

"We searched high and low for woven pendants at the perfect scale," says Jaclyn Willbrand, Lighting Connection's Managing Partner. "After many months of collaborating with artisan weavers out of Vietnam, we are proud to exclusively offer Highlines Woven Bell Pendant and the Rowan Rattan Pendant."


  • Storage¬†- Wicker storage bins are an affordable and easy way to incorporate this trend into your home. Whether used in your living room or closet, storage bins are a quick way to provide style and functionality.¬†

  • Bathroom/Kitchen Lighting¬†- Try adding a wicker or rattan pendant or chandelier to your kitchen or bathroom design ‚Äď this will add tons of warmth and add a great focal point to your room.¬†

  • Furniture¬†- Rattan isn't solely for outside anymore. Dining chairs, consoles and side tables¬†are a few categories to explore using Rattan. We're loving this, this and this.¬†

Rattan and wicker lighting has seen rapid popularity. It adds an organic, worldly vibe to your space and is versatile enough for a variety of styles from transitional, to coastal to modern.

We were not surprised to see that black is going to be trendy for 2020. You cannot go wrong with classic black, as it is super versatile and can be used in a variety of styles and settings. 

We challenge you to get creative this year. Our in-house design expert Tasha Neely says, "The options are unlimited when it comes to black. You can easily incorporate black into any design with cabinet pulls, lighting, and plumbing fixtures."

Looking for a budget-friendly option? We have hand-picked a few quick and easy options that will keep you and your wallet happy.


  • Paint - Don't be afraid to use black as a wall color. We recommend an eggshell finish, which minimizes shine. It's important to select a space with lots of natural light and to choose decor in contrasting colors.
  • Picture Frames¬† - Black picture frames help unify a room, especially if the wallpaper or paint color is bright. If you have several pieces of art or photos framed within a space, use the same frame finish for balance.
  • Furniture - Black furniture is used in styles varying from traditional, to rustic, to contemporary. It's classic and crisp.

    Designers are predicting that minimalism will be thriving in 2020. "We've seen a surge in homeowners wanting sleeker, modern lighting, even in more transitional spaces that aren't uber-modern," says Jaclyn Willbrand, Managing Partner at Lighting Connection. "I'm totally on board with this trend because it provides the opportunity for beautiful layers of light in a no-fuss design."    


    • Texture -¬†Balance a neutral color palette with an interesting mix of textures and materials: warm woods, sleek concrete, marble with beautiful veins, and soft upholstered furniture.
    • Edit, Edit, Edit¬†- Masters of minimalism design understand that with less, everything must serve a purpose.
    • Lighting¬†-¬†Lighting is a big piece in minimal design. Layering different types of lighting provides dimension.¬† Mix ambient, task, and accent lighting.
