If 2020 brought us nothing else, it offered a chance to reconnect with our homes through interior design. Spending more time at home provided us the opportunity to enhance our lives, making our spaces more beautiful, more functional, and a better representation of our personal style.
As 2021 approaches, look for design trends to change to reflect the changing times. We’ve listed some of the trends expected to dominate interior design next year. As we welcome a new year, consider incorporating these into your home so you can stay on trend while creating your sanctuary.
Rich, organic wall colors
Gray and beige have stood as designers’ favorite shades for the past several years. But this year, walls will take on decidedly darker hues. Bold and dramatic colors like garnet and sapphire will be popular, along with natural greens and browns. This trend is evident in top paint manufacturers’ choices for 2021 colors of the year:
- Sherwin Williams: Urbane Bronze
- Benjamin Moore: Aegean Teal
- Rust-Oleum: Spicy Paprika
- Glidden: Aqua Fiesta
- Farrow & Ball: Deep Reddish Brown
‘Grand millennial’ style
Imagine shopping in your grandma’s house for knick-knacks, textiles, and wall art. Combine your vintage finds with modern furniture to create a “grand millennial’ style. Elementals of cottage style like crocheted patterns, brass, and floral prints give your space a nostalgic feel. When combined with updated furnishings and clean lines, you can achieve a warm, welcoming atmosphere that doesn’t feel antiquated. Find treasures to create this style at thrift stores, estate sales, and maybe your grandmother’s basement.
Next year, the outdoors will come inside. Instead of hard, industrial decor, designers will soften things up. Along with house plants to add vibrant color, homes in 2021 will be filled with loads of natural light and natural materials. Sheer window treatments will grace windows, and natural materials, including jute, leather, and ceramic, will be incorporated into all aspects of interior design.
Wild walls and ceilings
Paint is usually the first choice for walls, but next year wallcoverings will be comprised of more interesting materials. Think textured wallpapers, fabric coverings, reclaimed wood, or “living” walls made from plants. But designers won’t stop at statement-making walls. Look for this creative trend to extend to ceilings as well.
Sustainable interior design choices
Brands are increasingly looking for more sustainability in both materials and production methods. Designers will follow suit and incorporate this holistic approach into their creations. By eschewing mass-produced items in favor of locally sourced products, designers will encourage this trend while helping homeowners create a one-of-a-kind aesthetic.
