Are you still trying to decide how you want to decorate your home? While it’s important to pay attention to your likes and dislikes, current trends might influence some of your design decisions. Here are a few of the top home décor trends for the year 2021.
This décor trend is a nod to things you might find in your grandparent’s home. The interesting trinkets, floral wallpaper, vintage furniture, and antique- looking paintings are all elements to this design and décor style. Imagine your Grandmother’s fine china hutch and embroidered pillows. These are the types of homey, nostalgic elements consumers are searching for these days. At a time where people are still working to make their homes as comfortable as possible, this trend makes a lot of sense.
When they say ‘country’ is in, it doesn’t mean western or farmhouse. A country aesthetic is referring to the ‘cottagecore’ movement. Think of what your home would look like if you lived in the English countryside. This design trend manages to be simple and elegant at the same time. It involves muted color palettes, vintage prints and gingham mixed with elegant accessories. Examples of these include gold statement pieces, fancy silverware and elaborate drinkware. This is another extremely popular style that consumers have flocked to for the comfort and coziness it adds to a space.
Wallpaper is all the rage right now. And lucky for us, wallpaper application processes have become much easier. Specifically, consumers are flocking to ‘peel-and-stick’ options that are both simple to apply and remove. This application method has resulted in an increased number of customers simply because renters can now utilize this product as well. It allows for temporary customization that makes a huge design impact.
The mixture of wood and metal is becoming an increasingly popular trend. It’s a timeless combination that balances warmth and cool elements in a space. This design style is often referred to as industrial. According to an article written by Sophia Mitrokostas for insider.com, “Industrial interior style often incorporates elements such as exposed stonework, high ceilings, wood and metal elements, and neutral colors.” The article goes on to say, “Industrial style has a mix of modern and traditional design and works for interiors that have to serve as places to live, work, and play.”
Wicker and Rattan furniture make the perfect additions to any boho type space. Wicker is made from woven willow twigs and rattan is made from woven palm stems. Each of these are extremely popular for their ability to be used in both indoor and outdoor spaces. They’re natural, durable and lightweight material that look fantastic with many different styles of design.
If you’re trying to decide a direction for your home, look into each of these design elements. Find what resonates with you and get to work creating spaces that will make your house feel like a home.
