There are several tricks to be able to give a new air to your space without having to spend much. Just a touch here and there and the difference is in plain view.
Have a look into 2021’s biggest interior trends from Home & Gardens to reinvent and refresh your home for the year ahead, and Happy New Year!
1. RUSTIC VOGUE – A SOPHISTICATED TAKE ON COTTAGECORE
This look is a crowd pleaser, appealing to anyone who loves their modern home comforts but wants to inject some character details into their living spaces, too. It works ideally in homes that already have some interesting features, such as exposed beams, original floorboards or panelled walls, but can equally be re-created with a considered balance of old and new pieces that work together in harmony.
Reclaimed wood is the core material that holds this look together – look for unique pieces that show plenty of grain and texture, rather than items that are perfectly finished.
2. YELLOW AND GRAY
This year, Pantone took the unusual step of naming two colors as their shades of the year: Illuminating, a zingy yellow, and Ultimate Yellow, a pale gray.
‘The selection of two independent colors highlight how different elements come together to express a message of strength and hopefulness that is both enduring and uplifting, conveying the idea that it’s not about one color or one person, it’s about more than one,’ says Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute.
‘Due to the events of 2020, I think that cottagecore, nostalgia and the need for comfort are all here to stay,’ says Instagram influencer and blogger Paula Sutton of Hill House Vintage.
‘Cottagecore is something that started off as very simplistic but I think it can also be mixed with touches of glamour to create a luxe traditional style. Elegant vintage style barware, gilded cutlery and statement gold accessories are all ways to get the look whilst staying on budget and touches of British quirk will keep the look feeling grounded.’
Think: a cuter version of Rustic Vogue, with ginghams and checks vying for attention with vintage prints and motifs – all set within a muted, pastel palette.
4. CONTEMPORARY COUNTRY
A wander through warm amber tones, mellow meadow prints and beautiful embroidery. Mix and match natural textures for a cozy and inviting look that lift both home and spirit.
Mix muted colors with folksy and characterful prints for a more modern country kind-of-vibe.
5. DISTANT SHORES
We’re all yearning for this, right? Well, the laid-back lifestyle of Hawaii has been reimagined in this next trend. As we long for tropical getaways, interiors inspired by distant shores offer a calm and relaxing living space to make a home a safe and inviting place to recharge. Adding a contemporary edge to a classic floral design, the Distant Shores trend features tropical brights, subtle monotones and soft lemons.
‘Tropical leaves and florals can be used to bring the outside indoors, with an introduction to greenery into homes. Easy-living digital prints are designed to work in any home with complementary color palettes to emulate the varied Hawaiian landscape,’ continues Parry.
‘There are many people who have missed the freedom to go aboard in 2020,’ says Paula Sutton of Hill House Vintage. ‘So I predict a return to a global inspiration within interiors, where our spaces reflect our travels, the sea and distant shores.’
