12 Home Design Trends that Will Be Popular in 2021

1. Grandmillennial Grandeur

It’s just a fancy term millennials use for granny chic. But make no mistake about it. It is not just the term that has been updated but the look as well. It is still largely characterized by floral prints and patterns, embroidered curtains, and lace table cloth, the stuff that reminds you of grandma’s house only with a little modern flair.

2. Robust Rattan

Rattan and cane furniture will continue to be in demand throughout 2021. They mix perfectly well with other styles, such as modern, global influence, vintage, eclectic, and shabby chic. Furniture made out of rattan — stools, tables, headboards, and beds — are all very easy ways of incorporating this look into your home.

3. Houseplants Galore

The interest in houseplants started a few years back when posts about them took over Instagram and Pinterest by storm. Never have houseplants enjoyed this level of popularity ever since the 1970s, which grew even more when the pandemic struck. More and more millennials and even Gen-Xers are jumping on the plant-parent bandwagon, and it shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

4. Shabby Chic

Shabby chic is making a comeback but not entirely in the way that you expect. The style has somehow had a bit of an update, a perfect fit for a more modern aesthetic. What’s amazing about this style is it seamlessly puts together vintage goodness with modern flair giving your home an unrefined elegant look.

5. French Country Chic

This style appears very close to shabby chic but is also different in some ways. Both of them are somewhat beacons of simplistic elegance, especially the French country style, where the furniture pieces are given an embellished look to give off a royal and elegant vibe.

6. Relaxing Ocean Hues

What could be more relaxing than spending an entire day at the beach or by the pool? Well, unless you live by the beach or have a pool in your home, the next best thing to do is to include some of their more distinct characteristics into your interiors, especially with the use of a tropical ocean palette. It gives off a tranquil vibe that helps get lower your stress and anxiety.

7. Classic Traditionalism

Inspired by the 18th and 19th centuries, this trend will be one of the more common ones you will see in 2021. It blends well with granny chic, shabby chic, and French country chic, especially if you incorporate antique and historical pieces and some classic art into your design.

8. Earthy Tones and Natural Textures

Lately, we’ve seen a greater increase in the use of textures to add interest and personality to a space instead of color. Seeing layers of different textures in the same color palette but still in contrast to the space’s color is indeed a sight for sore eyes. Expect to see more of this in homes all over the world in your social media newsfeeds.

9. Outdoor Living Spaces

Outdoor spaces are getting more and more common nowadays, from outdoor living rooms to outdoor kitchens. If some folks bring the outdoors in with their houseplants and other natural elements incorporated into their interiors, some folks choose to go the other way around and bring indoor elements into their exteriors. This trend will continue to pick-up throughout 2021.

10. Vintage

With more than just nostalgia to offer, vintage pieces are making a huge comeback as styling options. Finely selected vintage pieces that are well-placed against modern backgrounds make the space stand out and give it a lot of character and life. It breaks the monotony of the sleek and contemporary feel of modern architecture, which has been on trend for a long time already, and gives your home a homely and slightly eclectic feel.

11. Cottagecore Trend

The events that unfolded in 2020 that put everyone back into their homes somehow forced the cottagecore style into the spotlight. You see it all over social media now. Homes that are seemingly pastoral and wholesome, short of rural. This is characterized by soft pastel colors, super cozy, comfy, and cluttered in a good way.

12. Rustic Vogue

Lastly, a rustic vogue flavor is also one of our main picks to be 2021’s bigger home styling hits. This is perfect for those who want to inject a bit of character into their cozy and comfortable modern home look. It works really well with homes that already have elements such as exposed beams, paneled walls, and original floorboards, thus enhancing the rustic vibe of the property.
