The year 2020 was a wild ride with unexpected challenges that changed how we live in our homes. With many of us making our homes also our offices, classrooms, and more! As this year comes to a close, we're stepping into 2021 with a different perspective and a deeper appreciation for the roles our homes play in our daily lives.
Ready to see what home design will look like in the coming year? We thought so! Here are the top seven interior design trends to try in 2021. If you're ready to update your home for the new year, here are the trends that will likely be HUGE.
1. Nostalgic + Old Fashioned Style
One of the biggest 2021 decorating trends isn't new at all. Design styles of the past are making a comeback as people turn to nostalgia for comfort and security.
2. Multipurpose Spaces
With many of us adding workspaces to our living rooms (or basements) and classrooms in kitchens, having multipurpose spaces has become more important than ever. In 2021, people will be finding more ways to reimagine their homes and incorporate pieces that help restore balance.
3. Easy-to-Clean + Durable Fabrics and Surfaces
Cleanliness was the number one thing we were looking out for in 2020 due to the pandemic, so easy-to-clean materials will certainly rise in popularity as a way to curb the spread of germs. We likely see more fabrics that are durable, wear well, and can be washed multiple times since we will be spending more time at home.
4. Warm, Earthy Colors
As for colors, expect shades to warm up in 2021. These warm, earthy shades will add more comfort and coziness to your space. Colors like greens and burnt oranges will continue in popularity!
5. Indoor Plants + Garden
You know how much we love greenery at Stone House, just check out our Easy Ways to Add Natural Elements to Your Home post! Plants freshen indoor air, bring the clarity and calm of nature indoors, are beautiful to look at, and can be a nice grounding activity. Don't be surprised if you notice more and more people opting for their own freshly grown indoor herbs and vegetable plants too.
6. Natural Materials
Natural materials such as light-toned wood, jute, leather, ceramic, and live plants will continue to furnish homes in the new year. There is something about the natural and organic appeal of elements that makes a room can make a room feel more calming, peaceful, and above all welcoming.
7. Sustainable Furnishings
An increased focus on sustainability is a broader trend that impacts many aspects of our daily lives, including how we furnish our homes. We love to use vintage rugs in our designs not only for the look and feel, but because of sustainability as well.
