We made it. 2021 is here. The time has come to explore the latest design trends for this year. Whether you’re happy with your current design style or looking for something fresh and new, our guide to upcoming 2021 design trends will help you stay on top of all the latest happenings in the design world. Consider these 3 trends for your home.


2021 Design Trends: Comfort Takes Center Stage

Thanks to these unprecedented times, people are spending more time at home than ever before. Rather than creating a formal living room to entertain guests, homeowners are looking toward comfort when it comes to their living spaces. You can be a part of the comfort trend by replacing stiff or rigid furniture with something featuring overstuffed arms and a curvy silhouette. Focus on construction, softness, and support to create the ultimate comfortable space this year. Anything that you could easily curl up on and read a book or take a nice afternoon nap is an excellent choice.



Bold, Daring Colors

While muted, neutral colors have long been the foundation of a good interior design, 2021 will be about incorporating more intense colors. Dark walls in rich hues like navy blue or a rust orange take over softer shades like light gray or beige. Infuse even more color into your home by decorating it with a myriad of throw pillows and blankets in fun patterns and shades. A unique area rug with a vibrant pattern can instantly give your living room or dining room an on-trend upgrade. Just remember to keep color in your bedroom to a minimum since it may interfere with sleep. Have some fun in 2021. You deserve it.



Hygge and Light-Toned Wood

A popular trend for interiors in 2020 and 2021 is the Hygge style, a Danish and Norwegian movement that promotes calm and comfort. You can recreate the Hygge aesthetic in your own home by choosing furnishings featured in a light-toned wood. Look for tables, chairs, and accent pieces crafted of a blonde or light oak or even a sanded, unfinished wood. The beauty of choosing light-colored furniture is that you can always punch it up with accessories to add a pop of color. You can also look to update your flooring to achieve the same esthetic. There are so many options. There hardwood, engineered flooring, and porcelain floors, and the list go on. Think about where the floors are and what kind of traffic they see. To get the Hygge aesthetic, seek out furnishings made of solid wood in light tones rather than items crafted of metal or lacquer.
