There’s no better time than the beginning of a new year to give your home a “mini makeover.” As you look ahead to 2021, think about the areas of your home that you’d like to spruce up a little (or a lot)! From warm, earthy tones to house plants, there are so many fun trends to try out in your favorite spaces. Take a look at a few top design trends for 2021 that our designers recommend.
Interior Home Design Trends
House Plants: If you love the calming, natural vibe of house plants, situate them throughout your favorite spaces, like your kitchen, bedroom, or family room. This is an easy way to spruce up your home without having to make a big adjustment. Try herbs, peace lilies, English ivy, pothos, Chinese evergreens, and more to brighten up your rooms. You can also add pops of color and personality with unique planters.
Statement Headboards: Nothing says “relaxation” quite like a beautifully designed bedroom. And nothing completes a well-rounded look than a statement headboard for the bed. This year, it’s all about vibrant, lively headboards that become a focal point in the room. From tufted and nailhead styles, to geometric patterns and bright colors, the options are endless. Plus, you can paint an accent wall behind it to complement the look!
Home Office: If you’ve already designated a flexible space as an office, you’re ahead of the trend! We’re predicting that home offices are here to stay, which gives you countless opportunities to design and decorate your space, and change it up when you’re ready for something new. The most important thing is to create an office that you’re comfortable working in every day, whether that includes calming plants, accessories like photos and wall art, a soothing wall color, floating bookshelves, a trendy ladder, warm lighting, etc.
Warm, Earthy Tones: Now more than ever, we love the idea of a warm and comforting aura at home. That’s why earthy tones are the perfect colors to incorporate into your spaces, whether as wall colors, in furniture and accessories, throughout table displays and bedding, and more. The natural, earthy look can be created with browns, tans, yellows, warm grays, ivory, soft shades of green, and more — play around with these hues and see what feels best!
Multipurpose Spaces: Now that you’re spending more time at home, it makes sense to maximize your flexible spaces. For example, if your kids are currently taking virtual classes, you can create a virtual classroom that doubles as a playroom or rec room for after school. For a cozy home office, add storage shelves, a desk, and a chair to your family room (or even your bedroom)! You can also use a flexible room as a home gym and hobby/crafts area, so you and your kids can both utilize the space.
Contemporary Style: No matter the style of your home, whether farmhouse or traditional, we love the look of contemporary touches here and there. Believe it or not, the “grandmillennial” trend is making a huge splash in homes — and it’s so much fun to get creative with! This up-and-coming style is all about comfort, and incorporating the “homey” decor pieces you might find in your grandparents’ home into modern spaces. The grandmillennial trend includes things like floral wallpaper, rattan coffee tables, antique paintings, scalloped lampshades, delicate china, crocheted throws, and more. Try it out and see what feels right!
From all of us at Homes By Dickerson, we hope you enjoy sprucing up your home in 2021!
