Eda Tahmaz Commented on the decoration trends of 2020

As we approach the new year, the decoration trends of 2020 have started to be discussed. EDDA Architecture Founder Interior Architect Eda Tahmaz, who has achieved international success with her award-winning residence projects, remarked on the trends for the coming year, as well as the developments that will stand out in home design in the near future. While pastel tones, grey and earth tones maintain their dominance, we will be encountering metallic details, organic forms and angular surfaces in abundance.
EDDA Architecture Founder Interior Architect Eda Tahmaz analysed the trends of this year, and the developments in decoration that will be discussed in the near future, in terms of the houses of the future. According to Eda Tahmaz, who indicates that multifunctional living spaces will emerge parallel to the rising minimalist and environmentalist trend, natural textures, organic forms and angular surfaces will be largely preferred in decoration, along with a retro-futuristic trend. Matt and pastel colours will accompany metallic lustre.
In today’s cities, more compact living and working spaces where individuals are foregrounded have become more preferable. According to Eda Tahmaz, who says “as time passes, we will want more from technology and ourselves”, as human beings become more digitalised, technology will become more human. Pointing out that the number of individuals living alone has started to increase along with urbanisation, the internal architect indicates that living spaces are becoming smaller also because of the high cost of living. These smaller living spaces emerge as multifunctional living spaces referred to as ‘one-design, several functions’, which comprise multiple functions.
Emphasising that retro-futurism will become one of the most important architectural trends of the future, Tahmaz claims that this trend will be especially prominent in bathrooms, and irregular and porous surfaces, matt and pastel colours will come to the fore along with organic forms. In kitchens, natural textures, multifaceted forms and patterns comprising grids, grooves and ridges, organic forms together with terazzo appear in a matt and simple form.
The interior architect, who points out that raw and untreated materials will see frequent use in furniture and accessories, says that this year materials such as recycled fibres, natural composites, stones and minerals, transparent and tinted glass, aluminium, steel, porcelain, ceramic, patterned – textured leathers, granular wood, terracotta and clay, and bamboo will become prominent in decoration trends, and adds:
“Also, designs will be supported by platings such as copper- and bronze-colour metals, polished and frosted surfaces, lacquer, wrought iron, loose textiles, porous glazing, and sanding. Natural contours, grids, metallic lustre and glitter, and patina textures will be preferred on floors and walls, lending an aesthetically-pleasing appearance.”
According to Tahmaz, who points out that solid and robust geometries, circles and triangles, angular surfaces, controlled curves and spherical forms used in furniture design and accessories will be among the most striking trends of the year, shades of green as well as dark mink and grey, live metallic and pastel tones will lend colour to furniture and accessories.
