At the beginning of 2020, designers were touting two-tone kitchens and bold colours as the next big trends. Little did anyone know that practical amenities like home offices, gyms and bidets would end up being the most important design trends of 2020. Still, while the new year presents a new opportunity to refresh our homes, in certain ways it still feels as if we’re stuck in 2020. Many locations are still under stay-at-home orders, remote work has become the norm, and some children aren’t yet back in school full-time. And while we’ll see some new looks for the home this year, many of the trends influenced by the pandemic are here to stay for 2021. CovetED brings you the 2021 Design Trends that are here to stay! Enjoy!
A space that’s designed with big groups and family in mind. A space that has a sense of community, that can be transformed into different things. Something perfect for the times we are living. Since we are now sharing the same spaces for different purposes, what better than to have a place that feels welcoming and warm, stable, and prepared for everyone. That warm feeling is here to stay because home should be our safe space.
Rooms should have the human experience always in mind. The last year was all about being inside, and we can see that the future brings us a lot more of that. So we should focus on improving our comfort and senses, making our houses the most delightful experience.
3. Playfulness and joy
After a year full of unexpected events, and unforeseen days, we all need playfulness and joy in our lives. Bringing back the Memphis Art Movement, which is full of playful shapes and colours we can create the most joyful rooms. This is a year for brightness and positivity. So go ahead and play with shapes and colours, bring humour into your design and into your life.
Since 2020 made us feel all so apart we now feel the need to be closer to our loved ones. A great way to feel like you are still with them, even when you can’t still be physical with them, is by incorporating family pieces. Embrace those vintage pieces, bring something that will make you feel nostalgic, and use them in your home decoration.
A home should feel calm and be an uncluttered environment so you can heal while you relax. But that doesn’t mean you have to take your decor out the door. Sometimes means adding some greenery ou changing some materials to make your space feel more airy and open.
The time to start helping our land heal is now. So we could start choosing materials that in the long run are more sustainable and better for the environment and for us. What we can do is still having a sexy, sculptural style.
