Whether you refresh your entire pad or update a single room, discover how to transform your space with our top home décor trends for 2021.
1. Cottage Life
If you love vintage prints, floral motifs and rustic décor, the cottage life trend is for you. With a muted colour palette of olive green, dusty pink, ochre and baby blue, this theme is full of cosy home comforts with a nostalgic twist.
Cuddle up for relaxed evenings on the sofa with knitted throws and plenty of textured cushions. You can also enjoy sweet dreams under floral duvet sets in subtle shades. Escape to the country here we come!
2. Neutral Colours
We know it’s all too easy for clutter to pile up at home – especially when you’re spending more time than usual indoors. For simple, effortless style, look no further than the neutral trend. Focusing on clean lines, functional furniture and a soothing colour scheme of cream, caramel and taupe, this timeless trend will last season after season.
Balance bedrooms with fresh white duvet covers, grey throws and warm-toned lighting. Seagrass baskets, copper vases and light-enhancing mirrors will make the perfect finishing touches to this contemporary theme.
3. Tropical Tones
Dreaming of a stress-free and sunny getaway? Us too! After a difficult year, we could all do with a rejuvenating island retreat. To bring the beach with none of the air miles, update your home with the tropical trend.
Focusing on luscious green colour schemes and floral touches, tropical décor is just the thing to give your home that feel-good factor. Bring tropical vibes to your bedroom with palm-printed bedding and striking ornaments. You can also bring the outdoors inside with low-maintenance artificial plants.
4. Touchable Textures
We all deserve to treat ourselves to an interior update from time to time. For home décor that will make you feel like you’re lounging in luxury, opt for a textured theme in jewel tones of navy, teal and purple.
Add some wow to your living room with pleated cushions, velvet soft furnishings and fringe table lamps. Don’t forget to take your table settings to the next level with speckled tableware and patterned tumblers.
As winter turns to spring, lighten and brighten this trend with floral patterns and gold-toned home accessories.
5. Earthy Shades
All these crisp mornings and frosty nights have us craving cosy home décor. Fortunately, an earthy colour palette packed with rust browns, muted greens and deep reds is the perfect way to give your home a welcoming glow for the colder months.
To create a corner that’s perfect for relaxing, kick back with mustard cushions, knitted throws and a handful of flickering candles. For extra style points, opt for warm-toned rattan floor lamps and table lamps. The only thing left to add is a woven rug for extra comfort.
6. Harmonising Homes
Multiple coffee cups on every counter, a laptop on your kitchen table and a living room that’s full of meeting notes… Sound familiar? Keeping your home clean and clutter-free is never easy when you’re working from home!
Luckily, a few home accessories can help harmonise your home and workspaces. For a make-shift office that’s quick to assemble and easy to tidy away, stick to fuss-free extras like table lamps, wire shelves and cushions. Maximising light and keeping your posture straight, these functional accessories will add comfort without clutter.
