The year 2020 has taught many of us the value of reconnecting to our homes. From rearranging furniture to creating a makeshift office space, home decorating has served as our way to cope with isolation while on lockdown.
So what better way to welcome the next year than to recreate your space with the latest trends in interior design. We hope that these emerging design trends will spark creativity and innovation to help you create your best home look so far.
Life in colour
If there's any time to ditch white and neutral spaces, 2021 is the year to do it. One of the main colour trends to look after is the use of bold, striking shades for walls, furniture, and accessories.
Earthy tones are also expected to make a comeback in 2021, allowing you to incorporate natural materials such as wood, rattan, and granite.
Nostalgia is the future
Combining contemporary and traditional pieces is the next big thing in interior design. Get inspired by 80's home aesthetic by using sculptural furniture, glass and stone material, and saturated paint colours.
Interior designers are also predicting a 90's style comeback this year. This involves the use of wicker furniture, puddled curtains, hunter green walls, and loads of faux botanicals.
Despite the surge in retro trends next year, abstract art isn't going out of style. This contemporary art piece works well in almost all kinds of space, whether they be modern or traditionally designed rooms.
Abstract art is also a great way to add fresh energy to your home. It stimulates creativity and challenges your brain to make your own interpretation of the art. Moreover, it encompasses a wide range of textures and patterns which allows for a more diverse space.

Go Au Naturel
Natural materials continue to be the most popular home decors in the last few years. This is because more people are starting to turn into home materials that are both sustainable and eco-friendly.
For starters, using materials such as wood, glass, and metal add a more natural look to your home. Rattan and cane furniture also provide a calming effect that makes your home cozy and inviting.
Make a statement wall
One thing 2020 has taught us is that life is too short. So why wait to cover your home with the wallpaper you've been eyeing for years? In 2021, designers and homeowners are expected to use bold prints to make a statement and bring life to their space.
According to Manhattan-based designer Phillip Gorrivan, living spaces will be filled with daring colours and patterns to "tell a unique story" and "lift up our moods and spirits." They are also a great way to showcase the homeowner's style and personality and make their space more authentic and real.
