The past year has made our home a sanctuary and a safe haven during tough times. We’re all looking forward to a better, brighter 2021- quite literally. In terms of home decor as well as – we expect a fresh take on things with vivid shades and unique textures to uplift one’s mood.
We’ve collated five of the best and the most important home decor trends with the help of industry experts and our creative designers. Take a look at what this New Year has to offer when it comes to styling your home!
Stay Green in 2021
From hanging creepers to blooming flowers to fresh herbs and vegetables – there’s always a green friend that suits your space and style. Greens continue to be an important part of our home decor and will continue to be a staple this year as well. They not only bring clarity and nature’s calm indoors but also help make a house look warmer and livable.
Bold is the new Black
While neutral tones may be the more obvious choice when setting up spaces, a bold coloured wall or a statement accent piece – be it modern or antique – is a trend that’s here to stay. A bold element incorporates depth within a space whilst making it look luxe and classy.
Function with Style
With people turning their homes into an office, café, movie theatre – it is safe to say that
multi-purpose furniture is back in action. A folding chair that acts as an office or a patio chair or the breakfast tray that doubles up as a table to work from the comfort of your bed. Furniture that is comfortable, versatile and yet goes with the aesthetics of one’s home is what will be popular.
Grand- Millennial – a style that is a beautiful blend of traditional design popular with the millennials. Mixing seemingly-archaic elements and adding them with a more modern collection. For example an old China plate paired with a mason jar or crocheted cushion covers on a Scandinavian style sofa. This style is all about basically picking up something iconic and pairing it with an abstract product.
Staying indoors for the better part of 2020 has taught us to live more sustainably and appreciate nature more. Using natural and biodegradable materials like wood, hemp, cane and sourcing products locally takes precedence over unsustainable items and products especially those sourced or purchased from far-off locations.
As life slowly inches its way back to what it was – we look ahead with hope and faith but with no let-up in our safety and prevention protocols. Tweaking the old saying a little… “ When life gives you lemons, paint walls yellow and live it up a little.” We hope you’ll be able to look ahead and start planning your interiors and reward your home a little – for offering you protection and sanctuary in this year.
Have a Happy 2021!
