Trends for spring decor 2020 have been turned on their heads. Typically around this time, we see advertisements for getting outside or hosting brunches now that the weather is warming up.
But, with the unique circumstances (COVID-19 for those reading this after 2020) that we all find ourselves in; trends have shifted. Instead of a focus being on decorative items there is a renewed interest in creating functional, organized spaces.
Spring Decor 2020
Spring 2020 is all about home offices and study areas. This is, of course, because the vast majority of us are now working from home and homeschooling.
Retailers are certainly aware that this is not the time to push home entertaining or remodeling supplies. Both of these would require you to venture out of your homes or encourage gathering. Such promotions would be tone-deaf in this very serious time in history.
Instead, the focus is all about refreshing spaces and working with what you have. Transforming areas in your home to function differently is a hot topic.
We’re seeing home offices built inside garages, guest bedrooms, and kitchen nooks.
Note: Stay tuned for an in-depth post on how to create a workspace with no home office soon.
“Refreshing Spaces” is a term used when you’re merely switching out of adjusting a few things in a room. It’s dialing back a full room makeover or home renovation and keeping the vast majority of items you have in place.
Refreshing your space may simply be rearranging furniture, swapping out curtains, or moving things from one room to another.
The primary way we’re seeing spaces refreshed is by “shopping your home”. This is a common method for decorating on a budget that more and more people are adopting in light of employment uncertainty and a general feeling of needing to be prepared for anything.
And while purchasing decorative accents is not a top priority, refreshing spaces certainly can be. With a little creativity, you can easily create a fresh new feeling in your home.

Another popular area of focus is outdoor spaces. This is something that’s always trending in the spring, however, this year, there seems to be even more of a focus on it.
This is, again, because most people are confined to their homes. Playgrounds and parks are shut down, but kids still need to get outside into the fresh air and sunshine to run around.
Kids outside mean there are parents outside looking after them. As a result, there’s a higher interest in creating a comfortable outdoor room for your family.
It is worth noting, however, that the vintage glam and boho home decor styles along with anything blue is very popular right now. Also, home accessories that evoke a feeling of warmth and coziness are also sought after. I think that we’re all looking for a little extra comfort during this time.
So, don’t be afraid to leave out that fuzzy knit blanket from last season, stock up on a few extra snacks, and make the best of an unprecedented situation at home.
There are no rules in home decorating. Do what makes you feel comfortable, reduces stress, and helps you enjoy your family.
That’s it for this post. I hope you enjoyed it. I hope you, your family, and your friends are in good health. Thanks for reading. For more from Dianne Decor join the mailing list and follow me on Instagram and Bloglovin’.
