Continuing 2021 Home Decor Trends from 2020

Some of the best trends of 2020 are continuing into 2021. For example, neutral colors remain popular with blush becoming a new neutral when decorating your home.

Earthy colors also continue to be popular with rich browns and various shades of green being used to give many homes a fresh new look.

Another continuing 2020 trend that is still going strong in 2021 is the use of geometric shapes not just in mirrors and Knick-Knacks, but also in furniture as well, giving some rooms in the home a comfortable, but almost futuristic look and feel that many homeowners love.

The use of greenery and plants in 2021 décor is still going strong from 2020. Using live or artificial plants for home decor brings a sense of relaxation to any space, which is badly needed in this time of spending more and more time inside the home.

More people are choosing edible plants such as herbs providing homes with both the greenery they love and seasoning for soups, casseroles, and other dishes.

#1. Add Bright Colors to Neutral Rooms

Many people have neutral colored rooms in their home. The good news is that this type of room lends itself well to 2021 home décor trends by simply adding some bright colors to this room.

Go with cooler colors such as blues, (moody shades of blue not bright in your face blues) grays and greens.

You can easily update your room with some throw pillows, accent rugs andcolorful artwork or Knick knacks.

However, when it comes to kitchens, darker is in with black being a really trendy color for kitchen walls, cabinets and countertops. Black will also appear in other areas of the home, both in furniture and accents.

#2. Unusual Shaped Mirrors

One of the simple ways to execute the latest home decorating trends is by placing unusual shaped mirrors in your home.

Mirrors make rooms look larger and help reflect light, which can also make a dark room brighter.

But instead of a large rectangular or round mirror, why not go with a polygon or trapezoid shape.

Or better yet, go with several small mirrors in various shapes created into a more modern and artistic look.

#3. Geometric Shapes

Geometric shapes are in, which means you can decorate your bedroom with wallpaper that has thin geometric lines with plenty of white space.

You can also recover your dining room chairs with a geometric pattern. Or keep it simple by adding a new lighting fixture, piece of wall décor or other small elements in a geometric design.

#4. Going Green

For the last several years there has been a growing emphasis in using recycled and sustainable materials in our homes and that trend is not going anywhere.

And the good news is that many of us already use recycled or sustainable materials in our home decor. So, we already have a few trendy elements without doing anything at all.

Wood floors and natural stone will be seen in many homes, as well as indoor green plants all combined with more luxurious elements.

#5. Velvet

Velvet is showing up big in 2021 home décor. While most of us certainly don’t want to add a high maintenance velvet sofa or chair to our homes, we certainly can easily add a small blue or green velvet throw pillow to our neutral sofas or chairs.

#6. Flowers and Plant Life

In 2021, flowers and plants will continue to play a huge part in the trendiest decors.

However, instead of those vases bursting with fresh flowers, interesting grasses will add a touch of style as will dry herbs in nice wooden frames make for interesting wall displays.

#7. Upholstered Headboards

One of the big home décor trends for the bedroom in 2020 is upholstered headboards.

Upholstered headboards add texture and sense of luxury to your room without breaking the budget.

Changing Trends for 2021

#8. Versatility

The biggest new trend for 2021 is making the space in your home more versatile so it can serve different functions. For example, a small entryway can include a pull down desk for turning the entryway into a remote learning classroom.

People are also turning small closets into food pantries, and look at each new piece of furniture they buy in terms of its versatile function.

#9. Plaid

A new trend for 2021 is plaid fabrics appearing in quilts, upholstery, and accent pillows and rugs. Plaids give the home a more cozy and homey feel that adds a sense of rustic elegance to country home decors and sophistication to more modern decors.

#10. Lighting

Lighting is always important in any home, but in 2021 it takes on even more significance. Normally gloomier corners are being made into living or working spaces and therefore need better lighting.

This year lighting tends to use braided and knotted textiles in lighting, adding texture and sophistication to the look of the room.
