New year, new space! As we leave 2020 behind, you might be considering ways you can move forward even in times that continue to be uncertain. One simple idea? Update your home. Refreshing your space won’t just make staying at home more comfortable, it might also boost your spirits. If you’re looking for decorating ideas, here are a few trends that will be everywhere this year.
- Calming colors. The pace of the world right now is downright difficult to keep up with, which is why it’s more important than ever to make your home feel like a haven. Even the color experts at Pantone agree—that’s why they selected a soothing gray as one of their Colors of the Year for 2021. Ocean-inspired blues are also expected to be trending this year.
- Natural elements. Throughout the pandemic, the great outdoors has been a source of comfort and a means of escape. So it makes sense that people want to bring some of the outside in, especially during the colder months. Houseplants, natural textiles, and other representations of Mother Nature will be big in 2021.
- Vintage touches. Craving a small piece of your former life, the one that existed before 2020? So are many others, which is why vintage decor is on the upswing. From overstuffed couches to antique end tables, items inspired by the trends of yesteryear are having their moment.
- Cottagecore. On a similar note, the design approach known as “cottagecore” will continue to go strong this year. It began to emerge as a popular technique last year when everyone started to stay at home. Quite simply, cottagecore refers to decorating one’s home like a welcoming country cottage, complete with floral prints and cozy accents. It’s just what everyone was craving in 2020—and will continue to appreciate in the upcoming year.
