Over the last year, most of us have spent months sheltering in place and our homes have transformed into multifunctional spaces for work, education, entertainment, and hospitality. Because of this, we’ve seen a shift in design trends that have emerged. According to Elle Decor, here’s what designers say is on the horizon for 2021:
- Relaxed and cozy with more furniture and more comfortable chairs, though smaller in scale.
- More seating areas to allow families to still be together in the same room no matter what activities they’re pursuing.
- Luxe minimalism that brings in natural materials like marble, wood, and caning can create a sense of calmness in our personal spaces.
- Strong colors mixed with neutrals such as greens are definitely on the rise, along with a mix of antiques with newly minted pieces. Brown wood is back with a vengeance as are wicker and rattan.
- High-style accessories are becoming bolder, more artful, and more personal to create the perfect Zoom backgrounds.
- Entertainment spaces that strive for the atmosphere they’ve missed at their favorite restaurant or theater. There’s a greater appreciation for beautifully designed kitchens because people are staying home.
