Exploring 2021 Design Trends

2021 is here and it is time to make your personal space your perfect place.

With something for everyone, this year’s interior design trends are filled with color, comfort and best of all- customization, there is really something for everyone!

Quarantine has really helped people appreciate the space where they have to live and work more than ever before and because of this, we are encouraging people to go wild and figure out what really makes their house a Home.

This is the year to explore color, texture and personal styles. (Especially since great-aunt Maude isn’t going to be dropping by for an unexpected visit!)

Here, I will be discovering and defining a new Design Trend each week, including Cottagecore, Grand Millennial, Minimalist and how to use all the rich colors and fabrics in your everyday spaces. I will also discuss how to allow your children to customize their own rooms quickly and easily!

But let’s start with a brief look at the 3 main styles that are cropping up this year; Cottagecore, Grand Millennial and Minimalist. 

All of these styles are influenced by the  quarantine; which has caused everyone to stay home more than ever before. 

Cottagecore is our throwback style; think of flowy, floral peasant dresses, indoor plants, soft lighting and wood tones.  Taylor Swift spurred this style on with her new album “Evermore” and plaid covered studio sessions, while the bread making craze at the beginning of quarantine is what really started the aesthetic. This style is grounded in nature, bringing the outdoors inside and connecting to the world around you.

Next up we have Grand Millennial- which is all about Granny Chic and creating a cluttered, yet homey feel to your space. To achieve this look, jewel tones, lush fabrics, busy wallpaper and lots of knickknacks. While this aesthetic can seem overwhelming, it creates a space built for creativity or curling up with a good book.

The last design trend we are going to explore is Minimalism. This organized aesthetic was also made popular by quarantine and the idea that less is more. The clean, uncluttered look is a great way to bring calm and order to a world that feels a little out of our control. For this style, think warm whites or grays, natural wood tones mixed with concrete and a “Less is more” mentality.

I am looking forward to delving deeper into these trends and more in the coming year.

Always dream in color!
