Let’s Talk Trends for the New Year!

This month on Creative Living we’re talking trends for the New Year for your home and in your life!

2020 is a great time to update your home with a little makeover and the best way to do that is with paint. Our guest expert on Creative Living weighs in on the latest colors for your home interior.

First, think pale and matted colors of lightly toned whites, pastel colors and neutral shades of natural inspiration like stone, sand, and rust. Golden yellow started to appear in mid-2019 and is already given the nod as one of the strongest trends for 2020 in decoration. Black is back! Black is making a obvious appearance in the color trends this year. Pair it with pastels, gold, bright hues, or grays. It adds a sophisticated touch of elegance. If you are from the school that black is not a color you can substitute it for midnight blue. This deep, rich color adds sophistication to any room.

The maker’s movement continues to grow in 2020! The trend of taking something old and turning it into something new again is sparking even more joy this year among the masses. On Creative Living, we transform an Ugly Christmas Sweater into a decorative pillow cover for the holidays! This easy DIY project can be done with any sweater or sweatshirt not just an ugly Christmas sweater; think sports teams and schools. You can swap out your pillow covers every month and be on trend all year around.

We all know that good food is always on-trend so this month we met up with some friends to learn the secrets to tamale making. They’re not just for the holidays any more.

Living a balanced life is on the forefront of our minds these days. So, as we step into 2020 an easy way to live a balanced life is to spend more time with family. We meet up with a team of experts to show us how to create a family day-cation that is fun and stress free!

And finally, a few fashion trends to be on the look out for in 2020: polka dots and stripes are everywhere and in any style. The peplum will roll in for spring and summer and leather stays popular as every day wear. But it’s more fashionable coming in all colors. Puffed sleeves were a growing trend in 2019 which will still be popular in 2020.

Here’s to a new year and a trendy new you in 2020!
