If you feel like it’s time to reinvent your space, you’re in luck – we’ve deep-dived into the biggest interiors trends of 2021 to bring you the latest info and tips on what’s hot right now.

Ensuring our day-to-day surroundings are a relaxing place to be is important, especially as we’re spending more time at home now than ever before.

So, what’s set to rule in 2021? When it comes to on-trend colours, in all honesty, everything goes – from calming neutrals to bold statement hues. This year, we’d argue that the details dominate interiors trends rather than large-scale changes to kitchen or bathroom styles. If you’re wondering which current home trends to incorporate, we’ve found the pieces to shop right now.

Embrace the curve

@archdigest

Rather than the harsh, solid lines seen in rigid, boxy furniture, this year we’ll be seeing a curve-shaped aesthetic coming back into fashion. This home trend runs throughout the interior landscape, with flowing lines seen everywhere from architectural details to furniture and lighting styles. The trend links back to the Postmodernism era, where arches, soft lines and a retro-feel ruled. Something about this trend makes interior spaces feel instantly calming—a welcome bonus.

Green is God

@livingetcuk

No matter the room or style, every single tone of this botanical hue reigns supreme. Yes, Pantone may have chosen grey and yellow as its colours of 2021, and whilst they’re great to accessorise with, we say last year’s greenery trend is still number one for this year and beyond.

Whether you go all-out for a ‘70s style green velvet sofa or add accents with green textiles, this colour will comfort, up the cosy factor and bring the outside in. Extra points if your green-hued pieces crossover with other interior trends such as texture or curvature.

Light wood love-in

While dark woods like mahogany and walnut have previously ruled, this year light wood is having its moment in the home interior spotlight. Fresh and uplifting, the below pieces make spaces look light and bright. Light wood fits in beautifully with this year’s trending Japandi style (that’s the new interior crossover of Japanese chic and Scandi aesthetic, FYI) for ease and minimalism.

Stylishly sustainability

@nkukulife

Not so much an interior trend, but a necessary movement, as the world slowly wakes up to the realisation that our habits need to change in order to sustain the planet’s resources. Whilst you may already be shopping slow fashion, 2021 is the time to bring sustainable picks into your homeware, too. Think reusable glass bottles over plastics, reclaimed wood and upcycled items.

Au naturel

@madeddotcom

This crowd-pleasing home trend for everything natural evokes a feel of real balance and harmony. Channel the look with organic fabrics, earth-toned hues and nature-derived textures. This trend can easily cross over into sustainability, as many wooden, woven and rattan items look even better second-hand. Embrace linen, (don’t fight the crease, it’s trés on-trend) rope, rattan and jute items that’ll serve up a warm, comfortable vibe for your home.

Trend forecasters are citing kitchen shelves as thearea to style-up this year, so there’s nowhere better to display your glassware treasures.
