Deco trend 2021: Living in harmony with nature
This year again, natural materials remain in fashion. Wood, glass, stone and metal are increasingly replacing plastic. Respectful of the environment and our interiors, they also replace synthetic fabrics. In interior decoration, artificial materials are replaced by natural fabrics. This season, unpainted wood surfaces, stone textures, live plants, ceramics and wicker furniture will be especially popular..
Decorative elements and prints also revolve around nature. Images of animals, birds, leaves and flowers appear more and more in modern urban interiors. Vivid tropical patterns and an intense floral print, which will not leave walls and decor elements in the current year, have become the unconditional hit of 2020.
Deco trend 2021: Power of color
One of the main trends in color is the emphasis on bright palettes and rich colors in the design of furniture, lamps, accessories. The pastel shades, inspired by the Scandinavian style, remain in the background. It’s not surprising then that the Pantone Institute chose the color ultra violet as one of the main shades for the year..
Purple is a complex and dominant color that is unlikely to generalize, as it carries the bohemian spirit. For lovers of more sober tones, here are some recommendations for the current colors of the current year: powder pink, terracotta, honey yellow, mustard, green and the original shade called “oceanside” (or blue-gray-green).
Decoration trends 2021: metal is back in fashion
Metal as a material for the interior is not only a practical solution, but also a very elegant option. In the past, this material was mainly used in bathroom and kitchen decoration. Now it is used all over the house. Hot metals like brass, bronze, and copper are still very popular. Metal lamps combine perfectly with marble, glass and concrete. In addition, metal accessories have the ability to enhance furniture and decorative items made of natural materials..
All kinds of metal cladding will be all the rage in the coming year. Black metal is a new 2021 decor trend that will also gain more popularity.
Deco trend 2021: textured walls
Another 2021 decoration trend concerns the walls of interior spaces. Wallpaper and decorative plaster will give way to fabric wall decoration. During the new year, we will see more walls dressed in panels, in particular also with cladding made of luxury wood. Textured wooden surfaces evoke more closeness to nature. It is also a material that creates excellent additional thermal and sound insulation in the room.
Decoration and interior trends next year: the charm of luxury
The modern interior design is gradually changing. The trends of 2021 take us back to elegant luxury with art deco elements from the 20s of the last century. Individual style elements gain a new lease of life.
This year, the symmetrical organization of space, golden details, noble colors and lots of mirrors will be all the rage. The sophistication of the 20s coexists with classic elements. And it contrasts perfectly with the minimalism of the Scandinavian style. Moreover, it can also be easily combined with the modern industrial design of the loft style.
This 2021 decoration trend has already been announced with noble and luxurious materials. This year again, it will be expressed through luxury fabrics, marble surfaces, wood details and metal accents. Regarding this style again, the velvet accents should not be underestimated.
Many furniture designers this year have included velvet upholstery in their designs. They have focused in particular on the color of precious stones such as sapphire, citrine, emerald and amethyst. Hence the new style of vintage furniture !
Interior design trends: focus on originality !
This is probably one of the most important design trends of 2021. It is, in a way, about ignoring the trends and personalizing the space. It is about adjusting the interior decoration and adapting it to one’s own taste. In this individual approach to design, we take into account everything that is of interest to those who live within a space. Their interests and tastes are taken into account and valued. The interior is no longer limited to the framework of a style, but mainly follows the needs and preferences of the owners.
In light of this course towards individualization, designer furniture is gaining more and more popularity. Famous designers, artists and sculptors become authors of armchairs, sofas and rugs. These collections of furniture and accessories are offered to the public in small series. They emphasize elitism and uniqueness of the product. But don’t worry! Even if you may not have the opportunity to purchase unique designer furniture and decorative items, the market is now also looking to produce products that can be easily customized according to the needs of consumers. This evolution is expressed, for example, through luminaires which are designed to be personalized through a wider choice of the location of lamps and bulbs. The same goes for shelves or even more bulky furniture modules..
Deco trend 2021 – new products by room, by style and by type of furniture
Now that we have seen some of the trends in broad outline, let’s take a closer look at what the novelties in the decoration of rooms and the various elements of the interior are in more detail..
In this area, we’ve picked out all of our favorite trends for 2021. The good news is, they’re really easy to embrace. Here is more about it !

The bathroom adopts a combination of vintage and modern decor
Experts at Victoria Plumb noted that this modern vintage mix is gaining popularity as people move away from this very sleek contemporary monochrome look that has been in fashion for decades. This look is more eclectic and also rhymes with the tendency to personalize its decor. To adopt this style, hang ornate mirrors, add vintage chairs, choose bright colors! We love the mix of this contemporary freestanding bath statement with the more vintage elements of the bathroom..
Deco trend 2021: embrace the cottage atmosphere
So what is the cottage style that seems to be taking hold these days? In short, it would appear that cottage design is an aesthetic that started life on social media. Everything about this style is inspired by nature, the pastoral look and… it’s based on rural life! To see examples of decorating styles, just type in #cottagecore on Instagram. You will see it, your page will be filled with soft pastel colors, flowing dresses, quaint cottage interiors…
One really inexpensive way to bring this 2021 trend into your home is to browse eBay and Etsy for some truly unique bargain buys. So, if this style appeals to you, try this approach !
Adopt the 2021 decorative trend for rattan furniture
The trend for rattan furniture continues to prevail in 2021. Sideboards, chairs and beds made of this natural material… All of these pieces of furniture are really easy ways to bring this stylish material into your home. On social media, we have also seen quite a few upcycling projects using the rattan strap. So if you are looking for a cheap way to add some of this trendy texture to your home, you could try recycling by taking this approach..
Get inspired by grandma style decorations to be on trend this year
This is a trend that might surprise. Essentially, this is a new movement that is still being seen on social media for 2020/21. These are floral prints, lace tablecloths, embroidered curtains, whose timeless spirit increasingly fascinates and seduces.
But how do you adopt this 2021 decor trend without giving your home an overly aged look? By opting for an original combination, of course! Give spaces a modern touch by adding more contemporary accents, for example with a mid century style velvet sofa !
Go for a natural approach inside the house
We see that textures are used more and more to add interest to rooms. And this approach even seems to replace the use of color. We like the look of a lot of the layered textures, but all in the same color, or very similar. In trendy living rooms and bedrooms, pillows and blankets are an easy way to embrace this trend. In other rooms, try to bring textures with well-selected plant prints and similar patterns.
Invite the outdoors inside the house with dried flowers
Dried flowers are all over Instagram right now. And this is a great way to bring some natural and delicate textures into your home. You can dry the flowers yourself, for example, using the technique of flowers placed between the pages of a book. It is also possible to hang them up for a few weeks. Alternatively, you could also buy store-bought ready-to-use dried flowers.
Design your stylish home office
This year, home offices have become one of the most used spaces. And their decor is more and more elaborate. Never has this room in the house, generally quite functional, attracted so much attention. With so many people working from home or away from home, the design of home workspaces has become an essential aspect of interior design. Even if you don’t have a proper home office, you can still create a “separate” space to work there. This will make the organization of your daily tasks much easier and you will be more productive.
For fashionable lighting, opt for neon lights
Neons were a big trend on Pinterest towards the end of 2020. At the start of this new year, everything seems to indicate that this trend will continue for the months to come. You could go with the light strips or keep the presence of the neon lighting more subtle with some chic modern neon lettering..
Focus on modern rustic style for your living room
When it comes to trendy decor styles, we also recommend taking a look at modern rustic design. This year, it will be part of the 2021 decoration trend, especially for the living room area. To adopt it, consider decorating with white walls, textured cushions, cozy rugs and lots of wood elements.
As the name suggests, it’s a style that combines the comfort of contemporary interiors with the soft, eclectic vibe of rustic spaces. The good news is, this look is easy to achieve and can work in any room in the house..
