2021 has finally arrived. We seek relief from the challenges of 2020 and face the new year with a positive outlook. This frame of mind can be extended to the interior design world. Homes across the world will take this emotion and channel it into the design of their homes. Check out these interior design trends we can expect to see in the new year.

1) Getting in Touch With Nature

In 2020, we were faced with many challenges. In the new year, many are solely seeking solace in their space. With this, the trend of natural interior designs is projected to skyrocket. This design encourages us to get back to our roots and helps us better understand the world around us.

Pantone has named two colors as the theme for 2021, a soft yellow and cream. Creme represents a fresh start in the new year. 2020, as we all know, was filled with many challenges. In the new year, we hope to start anew. The soft yellow projects radiance.

And while we can't fully know what to expect from the new year, what we can do, is enter it with a positive outlook on life and use the lessons learned in 2020 in the 12 months to come.

Accessories that will thrive in the home of those who are interiorly inspired will be rattan and canned furniture. These materials are natural and fit perfectly with the refresh and reset theme projected to soar in the new year.

We can also expect a rise in consumer demand for more sustainable, artisan-made materials. Reusable resources become more demanded and integrated in every day life with each passing year. Bringing in a balanced sense of nature is an aesthetic that many will be drawn to and appreciate.

2) Diversity in Textures

In the new year, we can expect a diversity in textures to extend to the interior design world. Diversity creates space for a heightened design experience. This year we can expect to see a variety of textures incorporated into the home.

Popular textures include marble and paper elements. These textures cater towards minimalist designs, especially when paired with earth and neutral tones. A good example of this look is the picture placed above.

In this photo, we can see these designs throughout this living room. This space includes a variety of completementing earth and neutral shades. Objects such as the lamp, fireplace, and backdrop where the TV is placed, are all accented with a stunning stone texture.

This space’s simplicity is what makes it appealing to the eyes and heart. In 2021, incorporating the idea of minimalism and comfort is one many are looking forward to.

On the flip side, one’s interior design for the new year could be the complete opposite. In 1918 when the Spanish Flu hit, people of the time were faced with the same safety rules we have implemented today in the wake of COVID-19. Once the outbreak faded out, The Roaring 20s came in full swing. During this time, people we’re thrilled to dive back into the outside world. This inspired a wave of intricate and bold designs to surface, and there’s a possibility that we could also see this in the interior design world in 2021, continuing the The Roaring 20s.

3) Accent Walls

Accented walls serve as a beautiful way to provide contrast and texture in a space. A popular way this is accomplished is through color blocking. Coloring blocking is an easy, but highly effective way to block a section of the home with the color of your choice. This creates stunning contrast and really highlights that area of the home.

What makes this design so great is that it is a simple process and any color can be chosen to fit the aesthetic of any home. Great areas to include color blocking extend to practically anywhere in the home.

Popular spots include the dining room along with the bedroom. Select your color of choice, your preferred wall in your home, and simply paint the wall to achieve blocking.
