It has been a long and exhausting year; we are all looking to 2021 to be our saviour from the awful times we’ve endured in 2020. The truth is, at least for the first half of next year, 2021 will still be a testing time for most of the world. Lockdown orders will stay in place until herd immunity can be achieved and we’ll still be spending most of our time in our homes. What better reason to update your interior design spaces? Here are 5 excellent ideas for enhancing the interior of your home.

  1. Rustic Farmhouse Chic

This modern take on a country classic provides the perfect balance for those of us who love to inject a bit of modern feel to a classic farmhouse interior. This look works best in a home that has exposed beams and the original floorboards to work with. Reclaimed wood is the core design feature of this look so if your home is older, you’ll be in the best position to work this design style into your home perfectly.

  1. Bold Walls

For the longest time, interior designers have largely been choosing neutral wall colours. 2021 is predicted to be totally different. People are spending so much time in their homes these days and they want them to accurately reflect their personal style and taste, now more than ever. Adding bold walls to your home will be the style statement you need if you are thinking of finding someone to sell my home quickly. Bold colours are going to fill entire walls so choose your colours wisely.

  1. Cottagecore

Cottagecore is a design trend that came about as a direct result of lockdowns around the world. This interior look is centred on the concept of creating nostalgia and comfort – two of the things we desire the most right now. For this reason, this look will stick around for quite some time. Designed to give the inhabitants a feel for the way things once were, Cottagecore can be mixed with modern luxe and include restored furniture pieces to create a new luxury traditional interior design space.

  1. Green Cabinets

Green kitchen cabinets will likely be all the rage in 2021. Green works well with both cool and warm colour palettes and works wonders for creating a cosy kitchen. Some designers are suggesting that pairing soft sage green cabinets with marble counter-tops will bring out the gorgeous grey veining in the marble and will be the kitchen trend of the year – personally I can think of nothing better in my kitchen – just add matte gold fixtures!

  1. Sustainable Fabrics For The Win

Synthetic fabrics like polyester and nylon will lose out in 2021. Natural and recycled textiles will gain popularity – not only because they are more sustainable but also because they are simply gorgeous! Natural fabrics create less allergic reactions because they breathe a lot easier than their synthetic counterparts do. Think organic cottons and low-impact linens if you are considering reupholstering your sofa or if you’re in the market for new linen and drapes. 

Whatever design choices you opt for, make sure you love them for what they are and you’re not just trying to be trendy. At the end of the day you will need to live with the designs you choose, so be sure that they make you truly happy.
