In 2021, down to earth interiors are becoming increasingly popular. Harmony is highlighted in a natural foundation of warmth and activity. To counterbalance technological advances, home interiors will move towards more natural interiors.

Another important aspect of your interior design is the inclusion of material and textiles that have a rawness and show the hand of people in their creation. Organic forms and shapes are an exciting way to create drama within a neutral palette with a natural design.

Combining these design elements with checks, stripes and various patterns is a fun new trend for a variety of seasonal colours.

To juxtapose your neutral palette, current trends use two bold colours to add an artistic edge to a muted palette. These colours can bring together a variety of elements to bring a sense of personality and create an exciting space.

The 2021 and beyond design trends typically lean towards a minimalistic style. However, although the trends are minimalist-inspired, they move away from all-white interiors and move towards pops of colour, using antique pieces to bring personality and plants to bring the outside in. Mixing patterns, different scales of objects and prints to create a harmony of eclectic pieces. These pieces are grounded by one or two common tones to bring the patterns and pieces together by creating thoughtful layers. Using a minimalistic style as a base for your space allows you to incorporate other trends including the ‘Grand Millennial’ which is a revival of homey design elements that may have been found in your grandparents home to evoke feelings of comfort and nostalgia. This could include anything from bright, patterned wallpaper, antique paintings or vintage touches. Now is the time to explore different ways of living, including incorporating house plants to create a layered space and bring the outdoors in.
