For a sneak peek into some dwelling design components trending for 2020, we talked with one in all our go-to designers, Robin Decoteau, senior kitchen and bathtub designer at Kitchen & Tub Gallery in West Yarmouth; and with Jami Supsic, dwelling director for HGTV Journal in New York. Does what’s trending over the bridge translate to Cape Cod? The solutions could shock you.
Bead board, shiplap and subway tile
“Shiplap is big proper now,” mentioned Robin Decoteau of Kitchen & Tub Gallery. Many people are literally transferring away from bead board within the kitchen, in favor of the extra “industrial” potential of shiplap. “The brand new industrial farmhouse kinds translate so effectively to shiplap,” she mentioned. That look options modern traces usually paired with crisp white subway tile. And subway tile will all the time be a New England staple, she mentioned, although shoppers have opted for some variations, comparable to skinner tiles, for instance. HGTV Journal’s Jami Supsic additionally mentioned that shiplap is big, plus she enlightened us on an sudden phenomenon taking maintain over the bridge. “We’re truly seeing shiplap in additional of a pure wooden paneling end. It sounds so seventies,” she laughed, “however we’re seeing wooden trim in pure finishes on partitions and ceilings. Not the faux wooden paneling (gasp!), however a pleasant wooden look,” she added.
Gold and black finishes
For kitchen and toilet fixtures, brushed gold is the brand new brushed nickel. Whereas truly brass, these fixtures are shiny and stand out, extra so than the common brass fixtures, say, of the Nineteen Eighties. “What I’m seeing is an actual large begin towards this pattern,” mentioned Decoteau. “It’s going to be transferring ahead – gold tones for metals, paired with black,” she mentioned. Supsic agrees. “Brass continues to be king,” she mentioned, “however what we’re seeing now’s blended finishes with black, which appears to be like actually nice.” (Can’t determine? You may have each collectively. We noticed an ombre gooseneck faucet, of black fading into copper, on the Kitchen & Tub Gallery showroom.)
Blue and pure wooden kitchen islands
The blue kitchen island pattern has been round for a number of years now, and each Decoteau and Supsic say it’s right here to remain. “Everybody appears to need blue within the kitchen,” mentioned Supsic. She identified that Naval, Sherwin Williams’s coloration of the yr for 2020, is already an enormous hit. And we New Englanders positive like our navies. “We nonetheless see a number of navy and greyer blues,” mentioned Decoteau. She additionally added she’s been seeing many of us all for pure end wooden kitchen islands these days as effectively.
Pops of sample are big proper now, Decoteau mentioned. “Moderately than an accent wall of a strong coloration, we’re seeing patterns, which is form of fascinating as a result of we haven’t seen a number of patterns in the previous few years,” she mentioned. Is wallpaper again? Geometric patterned wallpaper is, for these accent partitions. Or maybe it’s a mosaic tile ground with a repeating geometric sample. “Individuals are having enjoyable with ground tile and likewise with rugs,” mentioned Supsic. “With shapes and stripes in geometric patterns, individuals are getting just a little extra adventurous.”
Caned furnishings and fixtures

The model provides a type of bohemian or a extra mild and ethereal look to a room. A big armoire with a caned face or sides, for instance, makes the piece really feel just a little bit lighter.
Painted freestanding bathtubs
Shoppers can select a freestanding tub and have the skin painted in virtually any coloration they need. Any of the 199 colours of the RAL Color Area System – a European coloration matching system used for portray and coatings (to not be confused with Pantone, which is utilized by graphic and print designers), that’s. This new pattern is so sizzling on the west coast proper now and slowly making its strategy to our neck of the woods, the place cobalt and navy blue are well-liked, as is black, for the bathtub. However when Decoteau visited the showroom in California, she was shocked to search out within the high 10 colours: tangerine, daffodil and shiny inexperienced.
We had been subtly getting ready you, with point out of vibrant colours, for our final trending ingredient for 2020: eighties neon. Supsic mentioned it’s again. “With neon being again, individuals are getting extra into that ’80s vibe,” she mentioned, including that she’s seen shiny colours on a number of accent ceilings these days (as an alternative of an accent wall). “It’ll be only one loopy off-color on their ceiling,” she mentioned.
