Mosaic trends in 2020 to look forward to as we say hello to a new decade

(4 min read) Mosaics bring a unique edge to interior design, with their endless potential, effortless durability and meticulous craftsmanship. It’s easy to see why these collections of tiny stones have won our hearts for millennia. This year promises some exciting style trends for the mosaic world, carrying on themes from the last decade of interior drama and bold, statement contrasts, to an eco-conscious craving for earthy, Zen spaces. It is clear that our spaces reflect our minds, and as political and environmental concerns continue to grow; our spaces reflect a shift in consciousness and ideals. What an interesting year is in store!


1. Making a statement with black and white contrasts

The interior design world has always walked in parallel to the fashion world and vice versa. Brave new ventures into new aesthetic worlds inspire us to push the boundaries of what has gone before and express ourselves in new, elegant and liberated ways. This year will see a continuation of brave geometric patterns, bold and zesty contrasts and truly dramatic interiors inspired by the drama of the 1920’s! Life is too short to not shout who you are from the rooftops!

2. All that glitters, is gold 😉

Gold is always in style, and the implementation of this luxurious shimmer into modern home accents always goes down a timeless treat. Take a look at gold making its ageless appearance in some captivating mosaics.

With wildfires, rising sea levels and extinction more rampant than ever, more people are embracing the natural world as something to protect, love and admire. This is not only seen in activism but in the way we choose to express in our homes, it seems that many people are favoring soft, natural materials and practicing mindful living in a less artificial and more earthy space. Natural materials provide us with a calm and reflective space; a place to remove ourselves from the all-consuming screens and daily worries and kick back in our own natural paradise. Themes include; natural colors, soft white and grey, and perfect imperfection.


3. Pebbles, pebbles, pebbles…

The natural uneven delight of pebbles is all the rage with this year’s natural vibe. Perfectly misshapen and randomly sized, they give a relaxed, organic feel to bathroom spaces.

4. Earthy browns — a true Zen palette

Bringing organic tones into the home mirrors the reflective quality of the outdoor world, no longer do you need to hike out to the mountains to find meditation space (although you totally should do this), but you can find a calm ambiance in soothing earthy shades in the comfort of your own home.

5. The natural allure of sandstone

Sandstone has been revered for years as a durable, beautiful earthy material, one that creates a gorgeous desert getaway vibe. Bringing sandstone into the home, particularly in the bathroom warms and softens the atmosphere, creating a luxurious, reflective bathing space.

    I really like the natural colors and the sandstone mosaics. But, at the same time, the contrasting ones look amazing and as a UCF alumni I really like the black and gold.

    I love the geometric black and white theme with gold added. The triangle tiles in the bathroom are gorgeous. I’ll certainly be looking into more monochrome tones for my bathroom this year.
