Home Décor trends of 2019  —  An earthy dream

(3 min read) This year has revolutionized home décor, with environmental consciousness growing evermore, backed with the prudent words of Greta Thunberg, by scientists, worldwide school strikes, and the infamous extinction rebellion, it seems the natural world is growing ever more present in our minds. This seems to have been reflected in our homes and living spaces, with more natural materials replacing the industrial modern edge that the early twenty-teens had to offer. Organic materials such as marble, stone, granite, gunmetal and pewter, copper, earthy ceramics, calming woods, and soft tones are creating a natural ambiance and serenity. Minimalism is in, matching a noticeable shift in many people’s attitudes towards consumerism, white walls and plant life are replacing busy spaces. Grunge, rustic décor, and open shelving, open plan kitchens and plumbing are bringing a hip yet tasteful relaxation to our home vibe.

Open shelving kitchen with rustic look and feel
Open shelving doesn’t just look great but gives you the chance to show off all of your ceramics, bespoke jars, and spices. And you’ll never have to delve through cupboards again! Open storage really cozifies the home; natural color choices infuse a sense of tranquil into the beautiful every day. © Bigger Than The Three of us

Frosted glass as a great home accent

    These are awesome trends. I really like the brickwork and the exposed copper wiring. I could definitely see utilizing both of those in my home.

    I love the earthy shades and tones paired with different shades of gold. Whether yellow, rose, champagne, and even white gold they look amazing. Your blog posts are always so unique and informative. Thank you for sharing.

    I loved the exposed beam Christmas room! And the dark bathroom. Both were so simply stated and elegant. I must finish raising my kids before I figure out what direction my decorating will go. Hopefully the clutter will go along with the grown up kids!!!

    Thank you so much, I am someone who loves to keep renovating my home and really loved the dark minimalist cladding against the simple wooden floor idea a lot .Looking forward to more such posts from you !

    Oh, I do love this kind of vibes! Too bad my new flat won’t be decorated in such a way, but hope it will look great, too! 🙂

    These are beautiful designs. I love earthy colors and i am glad they are in trend now. Our home decor should indeed reflect environmental consciousness.

    The shades of the earth, natural and neutral, I learned to appreciate them and combined with small details of bold colors such as green or red give great harmony and impact. My stay is like this.

    I love how earthy everything is. The one with the vines is the one that I find most attractive.

    I am loving all of the design in the pictures above and love the addition of plants in most of them as I always have plants in my home. They make the home cozier and they are great natural air filters too 🙂

    I do like exposed bricks but also wooden beams, I think they give a home a lot of personality. I would like to have both in my house.

    January 9, 2020 at 2:34 pm

    Gosh I wish I had the time to focus on this kind of stuff. We are going through the process of selling the home we built so it’s so strange to be trying to get rid of stuff and not continue to make the home beautiful like we have since we moved in!

  30. Bree
    January 9, 2020 at 3:33 pm

    What beautiful homes! I am definitely digging these vibes, for sure the 2020 trend!

    You are so right about the exposed copper plumbing being the rage as we did the same when we redecorated our closet bathroom downstairs

  32. Mudie
    January 9, 2020 at 5:04 pm

    We are looking to move and I hope that we can incorporate some of these trends. I really like the exposed walls and copper piping.

  33. Morgan
    January 9, 2020 at 5:33 pm

    OooOo this is some dreamy stuff! We’re moving end of this month so I’ll have a blank canvas to paint on – thank you for the inspo!

  34. Ave
    January 9, 2020 at 5:37 pm

    So many great trends and I think I’ll use some of them when decorating our new home soon. I really like exposed brickwork and timber beams too!

  35. Rachel Lavern
    January 9, 2020 at 6:19 pm

    I never cared for design with an industrial edge. Happy to hear things will be more “natural” going forward.

  36. Eileen M Loya
    January 9, 2020 at 6:43 pm

    These are beautiful interior design ideas. I did not know about the exposed copper plumbing being a trend nowadays, but it sure looks pretty! Wood furniture, accents, and flooring is very appealing to me. Makes any room look cozy.

  37. Blake

    The decor achieved quite a unique combination of modern with traditionalist and minimalist with a warm generous layout.

    I really like it. Looks stylish and modern, yet welcoming. Great ideas.

  38. Stephanie S.
    January 9, 2020 at 9:34 pm

    Great trends! I really love the open shelves. I think in a kitchen they look wonderful. I have a few in my home that I like putting plants on. Great list of trends!

    I adore all these ideas and will definitely keep this in mind when we start constructing on the condo. I, especially, love the frosted glass idea for open shelving. So nice!!!

    I love so many home design trends of 2019. I can’t decide between clean and modern, or rustic with exposed wood or even industrial!

    Thank you for sharing.

  44. Jasmine Watts

    I love the color combination. I would really like to have this kind of set-up.

  48. Norma
    January 10, 2020 at 9:58 am

    I love this pictures and great ideas to decorate our homes. I liked the shelves with frosted glass so that you know where everything is but it’s covered and it looks neater.

  49. MIlica
    January 10, 2020 at 10:48 am

    I really love all these designs especially on third photo! That is something that I want to do in my home, similar.

  51. Kristine Nicole Alessandra
    January 10, 2020 at 12:48 pm

    I like the exposed dark timber beams style and the exposed brick style. They do bring in so much coziness in a home. I will save this post for ideas when the time comes that we will renovate our home. I vote for any of these styles hands down.

  52. Krizzia
    January 10, 2020 at 1:07 pm

    I am so glad that earthy tones are trending now! I always loved this trend ever since. It’s a mix of modern and industrial and it does make your home more “homey”

  53. Susan

    I love exposed brick work and old style baths with copper plumbing

  54. Angela

    I really love the Earthy tones and darker colors. I have been wanting to do some home re-decorating and want to go with very earthy tones I think.

  56. Candace Hampton

    This aesthetic truly speaks to me. I love raw materials. It makes me feel closer to the Earth. And, minimalism is right up my alley.

    I find the Exposed copper plumbing is kind of unique and interesting design. Usually, the plumbing is concealed and this has taken me a surprise in a good way.

    I am in love with this! My home is done in very earthy tones. I have lot of neutrals, whites, wood, and green plants! I love the idea of frosted glass shelving, I’ve never seen that before.

  61. Sushmita

    This is super neat! I am not into earthy decor but I loved how the open shelves are being inculcated! Thanks for sharing!

    I really love the use of organic materials such as stone, copper, earthenware, calming forests, for home decoration. I love that light and natural environment as well as the gentle colors. Also, minimalism is something that fits my personality, so I like all the examples you showed in the pictures.

  63. Hannah Marie

    I love of bringing the idea of nature, the greens and earthy feel from the outdoors into the indoors and these are some stunning interior ideas to follow for this year.

    If I won the lottery, I want my house to have an earthy, cozy feel. Just like the designs you have here. Lots of wood and brick is my dream house.

  75. Rebecca
    January 13, 2020 at 11:04 am

    The out of the box approach to these design styles are refreshing. The copper exposed plumbing not only is stunning; but also makes a plumber’s life so much easier.
