Tap into 2021's biggest interior trends to reinvent and refresh your home this year.
With home playing such an important part in our lives now, it’s no surprise that overall trends this year focus on creating an environment where we can relax, recharge and feel comfortable.
With winter comes the innate desire to feel cosy and incorporating warm colours into a space is a great way to achieve this. Shades which add a playful element of colour during the cold winter season work equally well in sunnier months too, feeling warm and welcoming.
This kitchen demonstrates the idea perfectly, with its soft shades of charcoal and bare wood. We’re also seeing more and more rooms featuring burnt orange, ochre and browns to add depth to a space.
Lighting as a focal point
2021 sees lighting becoming the focus of rooms rather than being merely functional. Pendant lights are now frequently used over dining tables and breakfast bars to brighten and warm these spaces.
Thoughtfully placed ceiling lights can transform a room, so consider lighting as your starting point when updating your home.
Eco fabrics and materials
We’re all more conscious of the environment now and we’re definitely seeing a trend towards eco fabrics and materials as we balance décor and fashion with sustainability.
Wood, stone, glass, cotton, and linen create an incredibly harmonious and healthy atmosphere, as does having plants and flowers inside your home.
Home office as a focal point
Working from home is one of the hottest trends of the last decade, as well as being a necessity for most since the beginning of the pandemic, becoming one of the most critical functional areas of the home.
It is not surprising that designers recommend paying as much attention as possible to the atmosphere in home offices – this room or area needs to be conducive to work but also a comfortable environment to be in too, with things around you which bring you joy.
A great way to visually enlarge the space or decorate an accented wall, large mirrors have never gone out of style.
The shape of them has been updated, with the trend towards circular, in natural materials.
Tip: make sure that whatever surrounds the mirror is simple or with a natural texture to avoid a cluttered look.
