The COVID-19 pandemic has changed how much time we all spend at home. This new always-at-home lifestyle means we all need to rethink our spaces.
Each year, interior design trends change. Yet, the pandemic has influenced design by reminding us that we need to feel a sense of calm and joy inside our homes.
Read on for the top new home designs that are taking over during 2021.
One of the main interior design trends for 2021 will be to bring in as much natural light as possible. This means getting rid of heavy curtains and instead opt for sheer curtains, blinds, or even bare windows.
Inviting in the sunlight is an easy and effective way to brighten up your home interiors. Plus, it makes spaces feel much more comfortable.
Not to mention, as we're not getting out as much due to COVID-19, the increase in serotonin from sunlight is more important than ever.
A tried and true way to make interior design inviting and beautiful is with plants. This trend is supercharged this year.
Move over artificial plants, this year, we're all about the real deal. Especially since we're all used to working from home, it's easy to invest in caring for real plants.
Remember, plants positively impact your health by purifying the air and even improving your mood.
Another popular trend we're seeing in Highland Park interior design is woven furniture.
Rattan and wicker are natural materials that go so well with plants and natural light. They help add warmth and lightness to any space.
Lightweight and made from palm stems or willow twigs, these stylish pieces work well indoors or out.
The Pantone color of the year is actually two colors for 2021. A zesty, bright yellow, and a solid grey. The story these two colors tell is one of strength and hope and ultimately, working together.
Bring in this sentiment to your space by painting a wall, doorway, or cabinets in either shade.
Not ready to be so dramatic? That's OK. You can still give off the same vibe with some yellow and grey accent pillows, strategically placed décor pieces, and so on.
The new home designs we're seeing a lot of in 2021 are about coziness. This year, we're saying bye-bye to clutter and surrounding ourselves with joyful accessories.
Art, knick-knacks, sculptures - whatever sparks you up, but don't overdo it. Avoid an antique shop feel by overcrowding and instead focus on quality elements that feel inviting and warm. To keep a polished, luxe look, be sure to focus on how you set these up.
This might mean decluttering to make room for statement pieces that you really love and set the tone of the room.
