2021 is set to bring an abundance of new trends in home styling. Modern styling, Cottage-core, and 5-Star glamour are all set to make waves across the interior landscape. Are you looking for fresh furniture ideas? Read on to see how you can incorporate the hottest looks of the year into your home.
Hotel at Home
The deep opulence of a luxury hotel is set to make a statement in homes this year. Thick, soft carpets and gold features are important when nailing this trend. Furniture should scream expensive (even when it’s not!) in light colors or velvet fabrics. Try a curved sofa in a rich blue or deep teal and carry the look into the bedroom with a similarly colored bed—bonus points for a headboard that almost reaches the ceiling.
Green And Earthy
Neutrals have always been (and will always be) a style staple. 2021 sees a rise in elevated elegance within the design approach, resulting in calm and earthy environments with splashes of luxurious elements. Oversized plants complimented by soft ecru sofas and faux fur rugs offer both pared-back ambiance and understated glamour with little effort. Use accessories to complete the look with putty-colored candles and soft lighting.
Think warm pines and aged oak, rustic vibes are back again and set to stay popular in a big way over the next few years. Comfort is vital with this styling, and the key is creating a warm and cozy feel synonymous with a farmhouse kitchen. Imagine toasty Agas, big squashy armchairs, and thick jute rugs. Best suited to a home with characteristics such as wooden floors or huge fireplaces, match your furniture pieces to these elements. If original features aren’t your thing, ensure you have several chunky throws strewn over a deep, inviting sofa and wooden dining set to complete the look.
Light It Right
Lighting can often be overlooked once a home is furnished, but getting it right is so important. If you’re an interiors addict, you’ll know that magazines and social media are full of decadent lighting right now. Think about the space you are filling; if you have a double-height room or hallway, opt for a dramatic drop chandelier to wow visitors. If you want something with a little more function over fashion, simple pendants or bare bulbs hanging low over kitchen islands or dining tables are a great way to combine simplicity with sophistication.
Antique furniture is making a huge comeback. If auction houses are beyond your budget, you can get the look by scouring thrift stores and charity shops for unique pieces. If you find a hidden gem that needs a little love, fear not. Upcycling furniture is super easy, and there are so many ways to transform an item from drab to fab. If you don’t want to feel like you live in an English stately home, contrast the pieces with contemporary objects. Try an old, upholstered chair with an ultra-modern glass and gold coffee table. Just be sure to add one item at a time, or you run the risk of the room looking like a cluttered junkyard.
