New year, new decade, new home? There’s no better time to have a home décor refresh than at the beginning of a brand-new decade. Whether it be a simple lick of paint, a few key furniture pieces here and there or a full-scale overhaul, the time for change is now!

There’s no denying that with the welcoming in of the new year, people are a-buzz with excitement; setting resolutions, making plans and looking for inspiration to refresh and get their year off to a good start. The decision to redecorate or refresh your home can be a daunting one to make – especially with the trends changing on such a regular basis. So, where do you start?

At Essops we know just how tough planning a home refurbishment can be, which is why we’ve done a round-up of our top 3 trends for 2020 and some easy ways you can incorporate them into your own living space.

1.Embrace Opulence

Make your living room the centrepiece of your home by embracing a bold and luxurious take on a popular 70s trend – opulence and glamour! Think elegant occasional chairs with the scalloped shell backs, luxurious velvet finishes and soft edge framed furniture.

We’ve seen it before, but the era of statement couches is truly upon us. An ideal way to bring this trend to life in your own space is to invest in a key lounge suite that speaks for itself. The beauty of doing this is that you can tone down the rest of the room and allow the boldness of the key piece to work its magic.

Our top pick for this trend? Our Roberto 3Div Couch in a gorgeous navy blue velvet finish, of course. This beauty ticks all the boxes and delivers on wow-factor, too
