There are plenty of reasons to look forward to 2021 especially after this year! But like anything else, home decor evolves. And although the bigger shifts are more noticeable over longer periods of time, there are typically new trends that enter the design space each year.
With many people’s attitudes on life changing during 2020, and many wishing they could get away this year, I'm helping you take a look ahead at these interior design trends for 2021.
Comfort and tradition became a big focus for people in 2020, and that's going to continue in 2021.
People are spending a lot more time at home and looking to add layers of functional comfort to their space.
For instance, if you had a formal living room for years, you might be trying to think of ways to make it a more inviting and functional space.
Overstuffed furniture, softer curves, and traditional styles that you can count on always looking the same provide comfort and support for many during these unprecedented times.
People are Embracing Bold Wall Colors.
Neutral wall tones have been all the rage the last few years, with color coming from paintings or maybe an accent wall.
This trend is really inspired by people's disconnect with the outside world and a yearning to create a home that has a bit more flair and personality.
Plenty of Plants
It seems like 2020 was the year many of us went back to basics, and chances are these primal habits will only continue to grow in 2021, especially when it comes to indoor plants. Incorporating indoor plants to your decor can help refresh your air and brighten your mood. The best part is, you don’t have to get fancy!
Greater Diversity in Design Inspiration
While Europeans have much to offer the design world, we can’t wait to continue exploring ideas, materials, and artistry offered by people of other cultures and origins. Diversity paves the way for new, better ideas and innovations to help us create a more conscious and beautiful home, and I am excited to see a greater wealth of talent brought to the forefront of the world of design and architecture.
Outdoor Spaces Built for Year-Round Entertaining
Living through a pandemic has certainly caused us to rethink entertaining at home as we know it, but as we begin to discover how easy it can be to entertain through the winter with a few changes, creating these cozy outdoor spaces for year-round use is sure to be a priority for those with itty-bitty city balconies and sprawling, lakefront backyards alike.
I’m anticipating a rise in demand for outdoor fireplaces, fire pits, and even pizza ovens—anything that makes one's outdoor space more livable and exciting throughout the four seasons.

As society continues to recognize color as a critical form of communication, and a way to symbolize thoughts and ideas, many designers and brands are embracing the language of color to engage and connect.” — Pantone Color Institute's Laurie Pressman
