Natural Materials

Natural materials like wood, rattan, and jute have been extremely popular for quite a few seasons now, and it looks like they’re not going anywhere in 2021. Given their ability to instantly fill a space with welcoming warmth, it’s easy to see why this trend continues to withstand the test of time. 


1980s Revival

A lot of people would probably agree that many styles of the ‘80s aren’t exactly chic, but there are some design elements of the decade that are definitely worth bringing back, and we aren't the only ones to think so. The bold hues, sculptural furniture, and overall drama of the ‘80s are making their way back into homes in 2021 and we’re here for it. 


Bold Walls

Speaking of bold, it looks like whitewashed everything trend has run its course, with many people looking to elevate their walls with vibrant, bold colors instead. Given the bummer that 2020 has been for most of us, it makes sense that folks are looking to add more joy and excitement to their looks through fun wall colors. 


Blonde Wood

With Scandinavian style’s rise in popularity in recent years, it’s no surprise that the blonde wood finish that’s characteristic of the aesthetic is also making major waves. Next year, expect to see an even higher influx of lighter-wood finishes, which is a great way to add a chic and cozy feel to any of your looks. 


Grandmillennial Style

If you’re not familiar with it, Grandmillennial style is a lot like it sounds—a granny-chic style that merges Millennial style sensibilities with the aesthetic preferences of your grandparents. Think: thrifted furniture and antique decor paired with modern silhouettes and colors. The result is a compelling, layered look that’s both fresh and timeless.
