2020 has been a crazy and unpredictable year, but what we do know is that all this time spent at home has made people more aware of that they do and do not like in their home. Thankfully there is only 3 months left in this crazy year! 2021 is going to be a year of minimalistic, natural and practical design. Here are 6 trends to look out for in 2021!
1. Natural Elements
Bringing the outdoors in has been a huge trend lately! Having plants in your home is a great way to bring nature inside. And don't worry if you don't have a green thumb, faux plants are great too! Another way to incorporate natural elements is to use wood, linen and stone. A fireplace is a great way to mix textures, using a stone surround and wooden mantle.
2. Greys and Neutrals
Cool Greys and Neutrals will be popular in 2021. Grey is a great neutral that is known for connecting elegant interiors with technology. Neutrals create a clean, welcoming and cozy environment.
3. Navy Blue
Navy Blue is making a comeback! It is a great color to use in place of black when you want your home to have some richness in color but not be so stark. A great place to incorporate Navy Blue is in cabinets. An accent island with Navy Blue cabinets or even a vanity is beautiful.
4. Light Woods
Using light colored stained woods is another way people are bringing the outdoors in. Light woods bring a bright yet woodsy feel to a space. Light woods can be used on floors, furniture, cabinets or even walls.
5. Storage and Organization
With much of 2020 being spent at home, people are starting to see the value in ample storage and organization in their home. 2021 will be a big year for multipurpose rooms, innovative furniture and creative organization.
6. Statement Pieces
Gone are the days of cluttered decoration. Statement pieces are a great way to show your style and personality without having so much stuff in your home. Choose pieces and finishes that give your home the mood you desire, without cluttering it all up!
Overall it seems that 2021 will be the year of simple and realistic design. Simple neutrals in the background with pops of bright and inviting color, all made more welcoming by wood tones and texture.
