Top 6 Home Design Trends for 2021

Nice living room.

Another year has come to a close, and few years have left as bitter a taste as 2020 did. New years create new beginnings, making it the perfect time to redesign your space to feel more trendy or authentic.

Home Trends in Style in 2021

Our houses were our sanctuary last year, which inspired many families to create their own spaces for business, pleasure, and relaxation within the home. The home office took center stage, and other areas became mandatory ‘no work’ zones.

Here’s what else is up and coming in home design:


If you tried and failed to follow Marie Kondo’s advice to keep only the things that spark joy, you’ll be happy to hear that minimalism is out and maximalism is in. Few things represent our personality quite like—well, things.

Homeowners are adding personal touches such as bold shapes, unique trinkets, and exciting colors to create a living cabinet of curiosity. After all, what is a home, if not a place to write your story?


Cottagecore blends traditional British patterns with modern-day taste. This look brings us back to a simpler time and can be dressed up with gold accents or down with exposed floorboards and paneled walls.


Houseplants have been making waves for years, but bringing the outside in has never been more trendy. Bonus: Houseplants are proven to improve your productivity at work and boost your mood!

Color Trends of the Year

Expect to see these colors in and around homes all year.

Yellow and Grey

For the first time, Pantone named two colors as their Color of the Year: Ultimate Grey & Illuminating. The muted grey and the bold yellow create a lively mixture of stability and happiness in any space.

Warm, Earthy Tones

We’re taking it back to basics: earth tones will be all the rage in 2021. Warm browns, forest greens, and rusty orange tones can make any home feel more organic and connected to the natural world around us.

Make It Pop

With the rise in maximalism comes a refreshed love of all things bright and bold. Jewel tones, sunny shades, and floral wallpapers help brighten up our spaces in the wake of 2020.
