Thrifty Home Décor

Searches on Pinterest for thrifted home décor are up by a whopping 308%. And we’re on board with this trend for multiple reasons. Not only should it help save money, but it can also help to keep furniture out of landfills and reduce waste. Plus, vintage pieces are sure to be way more unique and personal than the same old IKEA furniture that everyone has.

2020 home trends Low-Waste Living & Product Swaps

Low-Waste Living & Product Swaps

Another trend that we can well and truly get behind, searches for low-waste living were up by 446%. With zero-waste and bulk-buy stores in Hong Kong on the rise, this trend has been gaining popularity in recent years and we’re more than happy to see this continuing. Another eco trend that’s on the rise is product swaps – with searches up 172%. Swapping single use for re-usable is now the norm for many of us, and this trend shows a growing effort to live a little greener.

2020 home trends Garden Room and Indoor Microgreens

Garden Room and Indoor Microgreens

You don’t have to twist our arm to get us to buy more house plants! We’re forever making trips to the Flower Market and adding easy-to-keep additions to our home. Searches for Garden Rooms are up by 104% – and though we may not have room for a whole indoor greenhouse in our tiny apartments, we can never say no to adding an extra hanging basket…

Another trend for the green-fingered amongst us to get on board with is indoor microgreens – searches for which were up 223%. Even if you don’t have room for big plants, you can always squeeze a few pots of fresh herbs onto a windowsill. Ideal for adding to both sauces and gin & tonics.

Dog Patios

One for the dog lovers out there, dog patios are apparently going to be a thing in 2020. Perfect for Hong Kong dog owners that are forever searching for grassy patches for their furry friends; those who are lucky enough to have outdoor space can get all the inspo they need to transform your terrace into a dog-friendly oasis.

Indian Living Rooms

We’re all for adding more colour and personality to our spaces.

The trend for Indian-style living rooms is on the rise, with searches up by 2,080%. Think bright colours, eclectic patterns and eye-catching accents.
