Top 10 Interior Design Trends For 2021
Come with us as we cast an eye over the interior styles we’ll all be coveting in 2021. Here’s what we know so far…
1. Introducing the colour trend of 2021
A.I. Aqua is set to be the ‘it’ colour of 2021. Think Aegean-inspired azure blues and you’ll be on the right track. It’s a smart choice to provide a contrasting pop of colour in a neutrally-toned room and also works with warm greys and whites.
2. The décor trend we need now: joyful, playful design
Why so serious? Design experts think it’s time to inject a sense of fun into our homes via playful design. Keep it sophisticated by choosing smart sculptural décor pieces in organic forms or an unexpected colour pop.
3. The big renovation trend for bathrooms: rose gold, copper and brass
Warm metals like rose gold, copper and brass are going to be big news for fixtures in the bathroom. They will be prized for both their chic aesthetic and for the inherent antibacterial and antimicrobial qualities held by copper and brass.
4. Organic materials strengthen the connection between home and nature
Natural and organic materials already have a hold in our interior loving hearts and, thankfully, they are predicted to feature in a strong way through 2021. Rattan, linen, jute and timber bring a handcrafted, artisanal feel to your space that reminds us of the natural world.
5. The plant of 2021 is going to be…
Did you know that recent online searches for house plants surpassed shoes? The spotted begonia is predicted to be the hot house plant of 2021, but any plant with distinctive patterned leaves is going to be found in every room of our homes in the coming year – especially bathrooms and bedrooms.
6. Earthy goodness with ceramic vessels
Ceramic vessels bring beauty and soul to our everyday experiences. Ceramics are both functional, decorative, and create an earthy, artisanal feel in any space. Ceramics and pottery keep it grounded and remind us of nature – ever important in a hyper-connected world.
7. Light wood is the furniture and building trend we can’t get enough of
Light wood – preferably unstained – is going to keep on popping up as a key material of foundational furniture pieces, but expect to see it used for flooring, cabinetry and walls. It’s yet another nod to the natural world and introduces a textural element in otherwise tonal interiors.
8. Statement pieces. But keep it minimal
Minimalist-inspired interiors, meet the new statement piece. While we traditionally associate big, bold statement décor and furniture with eclectic, boho and maximalist sensibilities, the new statement piece is confident enough to stand alone as a point of interest. We’re thinking of a fabulous chandelier or a showstopping sofa. And not too much else.
9. Lush, outdoor rooms
As we spend more time at home, we are going to be looking for more ways to create a luxe experience in an outdoor setting. You might also notice another theme looming large in the trend predictions for 2021; a strong desire to connect with nature. Follow this through by creating a lush comfortable space outdoors for a sweet retreat or entertaining.
10. The New Traditional
Trends are cyclical and most of us understand that almost everything, eventually, comes back around again. But none of us expected Grandmillenial style to take off so spectacularly, and this new approach to traditional décor is only going to surge yet again in 2021.
This throwback style is pure nostalgia and an ode to the comforting, cozy memories of your nana’s house. We’re talking chintz, hydrangeas, wicker, botanical prints, and matching china. Just don’t call it cluttered.
