Interior Design Trends 2021
Trends for the year and beyond
From the growing importance of sustainable materials locally acquired to elegant elements and a celebration of individuality and uniqueness, our 2021 trend edit will provide you with a curated look that will bring your home into a sensational style all year round.
With many people’s attitudes on life changing during 2020, many wishing they could get away this year too, we take a look at the trend for this year in 2021!
1. TAKE A MAXIMALIST APPROACH TO DECORATING
For those who love colorful decoration, this maximalist look channels the free-spirited essence of the celebrated artist within and their creative flair. Bravely mix contrast patterns across a scheme, harmonising the eclectic mix with different scales of print, and one or two grounding common tones to pull all the patterns together. Not only do the walls create layers in effect but the furniture too, mixes large-scale wall decor with small scale decorative details to entice these playful yet interesting layers.
2. COMBINE CHECKS AND STRIPES
Everyone’s two favourite patterns combine for this fun new trend that mixes the classic check and stripe with new season colors. Mix and match patterns in different scales to create the right balance. In this bedroom the delicately patterned cushions and elderdown soften the effect of the stripes and check on the wall and bed.
3. SLIP INTO SCULPTURAL FURNITURE
Carefully curated displays of shapely figures and organic forms take centre stage creating quiet drama in neutral spaces. As the striking furnishings and lighting in this living room show, sculptural can be beautiful and useful. For those with a love of ceramics,group pieces together behind glass or on a humble window shelf. Curved and shapely furniture and vessels draw the eye, inviting your gaze to dance across the space, want to know how? Contact us My Style Interiors Brisbane
4. BE BOLD WITH A PRIMARY PALETTE
We love this considered trend which gives interiors an artistic edge by using two primary colours against a muted palette. Here, a statement lamp with a big personality is the perfect way to bring colour into an existing neutral space and adding such vibrant color helps a piece to stand out from the crowd. In larger spaces wooden furniture and natural jute flooring is given a new lease of life with a sprinkling of bright primary colors.
5. TRANSPORT YOURSELF TO WARMER CLIMES WITH A WALL MURAL
Adorning interiors with maximum escapism, tropical wall-coverings full of lively patterns and dreamy painterly scenes are just what interiors are craving this year. This mural is oversized with plant life and a silhouette and has a woven pattern incorporated into the design to add texture, depth and to balance out the bold color.
6. CREATE A COTTAGE SCHEME WITH A COTTAGECORE
Due to the events of covid, cottagecore, nostalgia and the need for comfort are all here to stay, says Raquel from My Style Interiors Brisbane
Cottagecore is something that started off as very simplistic but I think it can be mixed with touches of glamour to create a luxe traditional style.
Elegant vintage style barware, gilded cutlery and statement gold accessories are all ways to get the look whilst staying on budget and touches of british quirk will keep the look feeling grounded. Think Rustic Vogue!
7. EMBRACE DISTANT SHORES
We’re all yearning for this, right? Well, the laid-back lifestyle of Hawaii has been reimagined in this next trend. As we long for tropical getaways, interiors inspired by distant shores offer a calm and relaxing living space to make a home a safe and inviting place to recharge. Adding a contemporary edge to a classic floral design, the distant shores trend features tropical brights, subtle monotones and soft lemons. Tropical leaves and florals can be used to bring the outside indoors, with an introduction to greenery into homes.
There are so many people who have missed the freedom to go abroad, so at My Style Interiors Brisbane we predict a return to a global inspiration with interiors, where our spaces reflect our travels, the sea and distant shores.
8. REJOICE WITH EARTHY GROUNDED SHADES
Firstly, Dulux announced its color of the year as Brave Ground, it’s all built around a natural, earthy color palette, packed with rusts, warm greens, deep reds and slubby browns, it’s comforting, welcoming and just what we need in 2021!
13. WARM UP WITH COLOUR
This winter provides the perfect excuse to get cozy, a great way of doing this is by incorporating warm colors to a space. However, warm colors can feel really welcoming in sunnier months too, and will see a lot of burnt oranges and peacock blues incorporated into people’s decor going forwards. These are great colors that work well with darker colours like grey and navy, but also add depth to a space and add a playful element to the space.
14. MAKE THE HOME OFFICE A FOCAL POINT
A home office must be designed as a space to induce thought, it wants to have crisp, clear lines, comfort and creative inspiration by way of artwork or patterned wallpaper. A desk light is a good way to add style and design-led angles to an office as well as being impreative for spot lighting, such as wall sconces with artwork or images coordinating its placement.
