3 Trending Interior Design Styles for 2021

If there’s one thing 2020 has taught us, it is to appreciate our homes more than ever. So this year, embarking on a home makeover has become more of a priority because everyone needs a space to live, work, entertain, and relax as people are encouraged to stay home amidst the global pandemic. 

If you’re looking for home inspiration to discuss with your interior designer in Orlando, here are three trending interior design styles of 2021.

Colors of the Year – Gray & Yellow

To welcome 2021, Pantone surprised us with not one but two colors of the year – Ultimate Gray and Illuminating. 

According to Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, “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.”

These colors are easy on the eyes and work so well together. While Ultimate Gray lends itself to a moody ambiance, Illuminating yellow brightens up the space. Alternatively, opt for a primarily bright, cheery space with gray accents to ground the whole aesthetic.

A Marriage Between Modern & Rustic

While the cottagecore aesthetic has become increasingly popular on platforms like TikTok and Pinterest, it can be too far removed from modern life for many people. Instead, rustic vogue design, which combines the rustic and modern, has emerged as one of the top interior design styles in 2021. Images of exposed beams in a modern kitchen or paneled walls with minimalist furniture come to mind. 

This home aesthetic is all about including timeless vintage as well as contemporary pieces and details to ultimately create a unique and personal space.

The key element for rustic vogue is color and material selection. Reclaimed materials such as wood with unique grain and texture, can function almost anywhere in a space, from shiplapped walls, exposed beams, and flooring to smaller details such as frames, a headboard, or butcher block. But the rustic details need to be balanced out by incorporating other modern elements, perhaps in the light fixtures, the hardware, or even some of the furniture. 

Making Waves with Tropical Touches

Staying at home for so long makes it so easy to dream about your next vacation. Unfortunately, with restrictions still in place and travel not opening any time soon, a lot of homeowners are inviting tropical vibes into their own homes. 

Perhaps the best way to bring the outdoors in is to literally bring the outdoors in – with plants! Turn your home into a tropical jungle with plants like monstera, philodendrons, elephant ears, and umbrella plants, among countless other tropical species.

Rattan furniture is making a big comeback, quickly becoming one of the popular 2021 home decor trends. The natural materials and unique style fit perfectly into the tropical, bohemian aesthetic people love these days. Statement tropical wallpaper that packs a punch or artwork featuring the ocean or flora and fauna are other ways to achieve the tropical interior design aesthetic in your home.
