As we continue into 2021, we can look back to 2020, and all agree that it was a defining year for everything, especially with our homes. While the shutdown during the pandemic left many families to create home offices, homeschooling spaces, and gyms that changed our lifestyles and the way we use our homes.
With businesses closed, homeowners took the opportunity at home to learn new skills, spend time with family, and tackle home improvement tasks.
Whether you moved into a new home or are renovating your current one, it’s important to choose an aesthetic interior design that is trending to help raise your home’s resale value, and also to create an appealing space.
Here are our five top trends in interior designs for spring 2021.
5 Top Interior Design Trends of Spring 2021
Trends come and go, but vintage fashion never goes out of style, especially in interior design. From antique to repurposes or salvage and retro items, every piece has its own place in a vintage scheme.
A vintage “look” involves the use of old or artificially aged furniture and decor with natural materials like wood and fabrics. The abrasions, cracked and chipped furniture should reflect the fashion trends of the decades to give the atmosphere a comfortable, lived-in feeling of relaxation, comfort, and nostalgia.
The vintage style pairs nicely with combining old and modern pieces. Build up your vintage-style scheme over time and add a few elements such as rich fabrics and statement lighting to create a vintage design with a modern touch.
2. Traditional Design
The traditional design is inspired by, well, traditional. It’s a timeless style taking influences from the 18th and 19th centuries, incorporating classic art, antiques, and pieces with history. You’ll often see traditional design influenced by European decor; it also incorporates elements from England, France, and the east.
A traditional design seeks to create a relaxing, orderly space. The furnishing matches each other, symmetry is important, and everything compliments each other.
In the traditional design, the walls are neutral, but art, textiles, and decor accents can help the room pop. You’ll also find architectural details like crown molding, columns, and wood-pailing uses through traditional design. Rooms are often centered around a focal point, like a fireplace or oil painting.
3. Shabby Chic
Shabby chic is a popular interior design that embraces a worn, homely, and lived-in look. Beautiful yet comforting, the soft colors, a mix of vintage and new decor with feminine accents creates a shabby chic design.
This fashionable design is filled with history-rich pieces that showcase chipped paint, vintage, and worn-out furniture to create an antique look. You can achieve this look with true furniture antiques or distress the furniture yourself.
Comfy fabrics are commonly used when it comes to the style, with cotton linen, feminine, floral patterns, and vintage fabrics used for beautiful accents.
4. Home Office Spaces
At the beginning of 2020, during the pandemic, many people learned the hard way that their kitchen, living room, and dining room shouldn’t be their office space. With the lack of privacy, there is a lack of function and productivity. A dedicated workspace in your home helps you set aside household distractions and focus on work.
There are a variety of home office interior designs like a minimalist workspace for small apartments, mid-century-modern loft office, or industrial home office. Customize your home office space that will not only inspire you to get that last bit of work done but also enjoy your surroundings while doing so.
Houseplants are a home decor staple that will never go out of style. Not only do they bring a homey aesthetic, but they’re good for your home as well. Even if you aren’t the greatest plant person, there are variations of plants that can thrive on their own.
Just adding a plant to a room in your home can make it feel more lively. If your living room looks empty, try arranging multiple plants at varying heights to give the space depth. Add plants to your bookcases, shelves, tabletops, and mantles for an effortless way to bring new energy into your space.
When you invest time and money into cultivating a room into a functional and beautiful living space, it makes your home feel even more special.
