Etsy just unveiled its predictions for the design and style trends that will take over in 2020. From the eye-catching hue we'll soon see popping up in home decor and fashion, to the wedding accessory everyone will be wearing, Etsy's resident trend expert, Dayna Isom Johnson, has predicted the trends we'll be seeing everywhere in 2020. See a trend you love, but want to make it your own? Etsy is the place to find a one-of-a-kind chartreuse handbag or a vintage puff-sleeve blouse no one else will own.
All Chartreuse Everything
While Pantone, Benjamin Moore, and Sherwin Williams have already announced their picks for Color of the Year 2020, Etsy has finally revealed its choice—chartreuse, a vibrant shade of green-yellow. As Etsy is the authority on all things bespoke and handmade, we can expect to see this bold hue popping up on everything from handsewn velvet pillow covers to DIY jewelry.
"It’s daring, statement-making, and unexpected—exactly what we’re all trying to embrace in the new year. I predict we’ll see this tone showing up everywhere from home goods to wardrobes," says Dayna Isom Johnson in the trend report. Start by introducing a chartreuse planter to your home or letting a chartreuse headband complete your outfit.
