The Latest Accessories-And the most exciting holiday trends for 2020!

If you read that headline and think, “Holiday trends? Is Amanda crazy? I finally vacuumed the last of the glitter out of the carpet…” I get it! But believe it or not, January is actually when my team starts the holiday magic. We take

scouting and sourcing trips to the country’s design and decor markets where thousands (yes, thousands!) of brands showcase their decor and lifestyle pieces. Imagine showroom after showroom of inspired objects to catch the eye and imagination of designers like myself.

We Source Across the Country!

The Simple Home team visits industry shows in cities like Atlanta, New York, and Las Vegas twice a year (winter/summer), and often High Point Market (spring/fall) to stay on top of trends so we can keep our inventory fresh and up to date for our clients. I recently attended the January Atlanta Market where my team hoofed it around 7 million square feet of showrooms to see what holiday trends are going to be bigger than Santa’s belly in 2020.

Christmas 2020 Trends

Here’s a sneak peek at a few of the most holly-jolly decorating trends coming for Christmas 2020…


Those impish little creatures with bulbous noses and stocking caps pulled over their eyes add charm to mantels and end tables.

Velvet Figurines

The rich color and texture of velvet engages the senses—especially sight and

touch! We found these could be fun as strategic accents.

Kitschy Christmas Décor

Color, color, color! Playful, cheeky accents keep the holidays merry and bright. No traditional red and green in this trend. Instead expect magentas, teals, limes, and so many other colors you wouldn’t expect in holiday decor.

Glitter Snow Globes

Dazzling, sparkling, illuminating! These snowglobes were in every showroom we visited. Instead of a snowglobe you pick up and shake, these globes had a constant movement of glitter swirling about.


Why should reindeer have all the holiday fun? Make way for these unexpected creatures to add whimsy to your holiday decorating scheme.

Decor 2020 Trends

And since we do have months until it’s time to put up the tree and lights again, let’s recap trending themes for interior accents in 2020…


It has moved from the world of flooring to accent pieces. This composite material features the same pseudo-industrial style of cement but with added texture and color thanks to chips of marble, quartz, granite, or glass mixed in. Terrazzo showed up in frames, vases, furniture, and even lighting!

Deep Blue & Indigo

A gorgeous color scheme ideal for an accent wall, door, or a theme color for select decorative objects in a room.

Millennial Pink Moves Into Coral Tones

This pale shade is classic and mature; not teenybopper bubble gum pink. But look for it to scoot a smidge warmer to coral tones. Accessories in this shade are an easy way to bring a feeling of warmth into any room.


It’s celebratory, yet neutral…classic, but somehow updated. The Black/White/Gold trio just works! Choice accents can be incorporated into even the most functional spaces for your residents.

Farm Chic

Modern farmhouse is still a thing! But with a slight update: expect cleaner lines and fewer country-antique accents. What stays? Comfy furniture, select salvaged materials, and a color palette of cream, light green, and cozy browns.

Now comes the fun part!

I review (read: obsess over) all my notes from the Atlanta show to curate a well-stocked inventory at our easy-to-browse online store.
