Interior design trends you’ll see everywhere in 2021
Maybe you’re a keen amateur designer or perhaps having to stay indoors for nigh on twelve months has forced you to address the less than homey space you’ve created for yourself. Either way, these incredible interior design trends for 2021 are certain to inspire the decorator within!
Smart space separation
Now that we’re working, eating, sleeping, socialising, exercising, and everything else-ing from home, creating a space in which we can do all of those things somewhat separately is absolutely key. 2021 will see a move towards rooms designed to take on more than one function. Whether that be a screened off workspace in the living room, a cocktail bar in the kitchen, or a yoga set-up in the hallway.
Plants, plants, and more plants
Though we can still get outdoors to exercise (when taking all of the proper precautions), we’re missing being outside as much as we once were. And what’s a quick and easy way to create a sense of the outdoors, indoors? Plants! Adding a healthy amount of greenery to your indoor space will instantly make you feel calmer and more at one with the great outdoors. Not to mention, they look incredible in literally every design scheme.
Neutral tones and natural textures
With an overarching desire to feel calm in a world that isn’t right now, 2021 means more of us will want to keep things clean and simple in the place we’re spending all of our time. Soft, neutral paint colours, plenty of greenery, and natural wood textures will make that happen.
Eye-catching splashes of colour
As some feel a need for calm, others will desire unparalleled creativity and sheer joy within their homes. Therefore, expect to see plenty of neutral interiors punctuated with brightly coloured walls, furniture pieces, and artworks guaranteed to inspire a smile.
Many will bid farewell to shiplap and barn doors in place of punchier spaces with a nod towards bold, darker colours and industrial styling.
Spending less money outside means we’re adding more expensive, luxurious decor pieces inside. A great way to quickly and easily style up your home.
Thankfully, it seems we’re all becoming more aware of the need to know where the items we buy come from and how they are created. Sustainable furniture, decor items, and even thrifted pieces will feature in many more homes in 2021 as result.
