It’s hard to believe it, but 2020 is finally over. With a new year comes new hope and new trends. After spending so much time in your home last year, you might be ready for a refresh — so now’s the time to start tracking the interior design trends that are bound to make a splash.
Here’s what home decor trends you can expect to be big in 2021.
We’re all spending a lot more time on our furniture, so function will continue to win out over form. Expect more oversized couches that give off a “sit here and binge an entire season on Netflix” vibe.
Expect lighter finishes and natural wood colors to take the place of dark stain in the new year. With both furniture and accents, home decor styles are going to get a much more understated and natural feel.
Walls, on the other hand, stand to go bold. While neutral paint colors have been all the rage for a while, deeper, darker and bolder colors are expected to be the more fashionable choice in 2021.
Yes, you read that correctly. The latest and greatest design trend mixes the old fashioned comfort of grandma’s house with a touch of chic. Think throwbacks, but updated. For instance, imagine pairing an ornate framed mirror with some understated floral wallpaper.
Plants, plants, plants
Along with the natural wood trend, 2021 will also bring more nature inside with plenty of greenery and plans. While you can certainly find convincing fake plants, perhaps 2021 is finally the year you develop a green thumb.
Of course, you know our stance on home design trends: go with what you like. When it comes to the interior of your home, you deserve to enjoy your decor long after the trends have come and gone, so make your decisions based on what you want to live with for the long haul.
