It’s officially a new year, and all these fresh start feels might have you looking at your surroundings and feeling a bit, well, underwhelmed. After all, part of the whole “new year, new you” thing involves new things to buy, right? So while you’re busy making upgrades to your closet/fitness routine/general lifestyle/etc., don’t let your home fall to the bottom of the list.

Sometimes a change of scenery can be the perfect way to jump-start the rest of your resolutions. Getting inspired by your surroundings and all that. So we turned to the designers behind Mermelada Estudio for 2020 home decor ideas that will help you channel your best self in the new year.

FIND YOUR INSPIRATION

“Inspiration is in everything that surrounds us. In our everyday life there are hundreds of interesting details. You only need to know how to look. We like to look into ancestral cultures, antique style, nature — all these concepts are full of surprises and secrets. We always find incredible shapes, colors and textures for inspiration.”

DEVELOP A POV

“It’s essential to get out of your comfort zone. We like to discover curiosities from many different cultures when we travel or even receive new ideas around our own city.”

TAKE RISKS

“Do not be afraid to mix styles in the same space. For example, the Roquette collection and the Forte bed are two different styles that perfectly match. You can be really creative with your style.”

MAKE AN IMPACT

“We love pieces with strong identity. It is an excellent idea to recover an old piece of furniture from a family member, or also use an antique or a vintage element. Creating spots of color with rugs, curtains and painting the walls can also completely change the atmosphere and renovate your home space.”

KEEP IT NATURAL

“We are rediscovering the natural materials, they are noble materials, with a lot of richness in textures and little environmental impact. We have to take care of the planet.”

FOLLOW YOUR HEART (NOT THE TRENDS)

“We keep trends in mind, but don’t pay much attention to them because the world of trends is going too fast. We feel more comfortable being faithful to our personality.”

DESIGN FOR LIFE

“Design can help turn your home into your perfect oasis. A place for relaxing and charging batteries after a stressful day.”

Don’t be afraid to push yourself with your 2020 home decor choices, especially if you’re really going for the whole “new you” thing. Or even same you, but with more style. Sometimes one piece can open up a whole new world of inspiration. Try out something you love but maybe wouldn’t normally buy; it might end up becoming a statement piece you cherish for life. And if you need some ideas, why not start with something by Mermelada Estudio for CB2?
