2021 Interior Design Trends
Are we all happy to be done with 2020? Last year brought us a lot of change, uncertainty and expanded our definition of "home". With many of us working remotely, the home became more than just a roof over our head, it became our safe haven, our all inclusive vacation, our daycare and workspace. This change in lifestyle also made us look at how our homes function and how they make us feel. We realized what works, what doesn’t and the impact it can have on our life overall. The ripple of 2020 will be felt for years to come so let's look at how this ripple will impact interior design trends in 2021:
1. Home Office Expanded & Evolved
Kids doing school from home, parents doing work from home and all that's in between. Our home office has expanded and evolved and this trend will continue in 2021. Whether that be a coffee bar in the living room or a hidden office larder in the kitchen our home office will never be the same.
Japandi is a hybrid of Japanese aesthetic and Scandinavian decor. Picture minimal Scandinavian design meets art deco Japanese elegance and voila you have Japandi. This interior design mashup of two classic design styles is turning heads in 2021.
3. Fluted & Ribbed
Whether it's a wall or a fireplace or any other surface, we're seeing ribbed fluted walls taking the Interior design world by storm. In fact, the ribbed wall treatment is being coined "the New Shiplap". We're just waiting for an affordable paneling option to come to market so we can reduce the tedious installation of individual half round molding. Keep your eye out of this trend, it will be around for awhile.
Oversized impact lighting will continue to be a trend in 2021. We're specifically loving anything clouded, pleated or coned. Playing off the Japandi theme, the large cone shades are soothing and dramatic. If you'd like to try this trend look to switch out a boring lamp shade with a large pleated shade this year.
Interior Design is a wonderful space full of unexpected twists and turns. We can't wait to see how 2021 unfolds.
