2021 Renovation Trends
Let’s face it, 2020 was not our favourite year so let’s skip ahead and see what 2021 has in store for us on the home front. If you’re already busy planning your 2021 renovation, you’re sure to come across some of these 2021 interior design and style trends.
Wood and natural elements
Lighter woods inspired by the ever-popular Scandi theme continue to be popular but look for woods with interesting grain lines and texture. A more natural and ‘raw’ look is set to steal the stage in 2021.
But wood is not the only natural element. Rattan, greenery and indigenous patterns that bring a sense of outside calm into our homes and that help ease our stressed minds are also high on the trends list.
Handmade and vintage
A lot of us took up new hobbies this year to keep our hands and minds occupied while Corona was wreaking havoc. While some of us succeeded, some of us had epic fails (sourdough disasters anyone?), but I think all of us have come to appreciate the time, effort and craftmanship of something handmade. Add in our constant strive to be kinder to the planet, and you’ll find that many of us are choosing to source handmade or vintage furniture and accessories.
Contemporary meets farm cottage
Farm cottage and contemporary are polar opposites when it comes to decorating but 2021 is set to fuse these two styles together (farmpoarary?) . Think Scandi -style exposed woods with floral textiles. Light and airy but with a sense of comfort.
Earthy colour palettes
When it comes to colours, natural tones continue to take the lead – ocean blues, subtle monotones, cool greens paired with warm orange and red tones are predicted to take centre stage in 2021.
This trend has us interested! The word is that houses that grow with families and can adapt spaces to suit the need are becoming more popular. Non-permanent walls that can be shifted to create a more versatile space or spaces that suit the current need are growing in popularity– now where was this when you were trying to do that zoom meeting in your study nook while the kids were home schooling (aka complaining loudly) at the dining table?!
But these are just trends. Feel free to buck them. With overseas holidays on pause and borders closing and opening every other day, your home is your constant. So make it a space you love and feel good in. We’ll support you either way.
Give us a call or send us an email – we would love to hear what plans you have for your home in 2021 and how we can help you achieve them.
