Whether you’re sprucing up the place or starting a new chapter in your life, decorating your home is always a fun endeavor. There’s nothing quite like getting out the home design catalogs, wall paints, and furniture polish.
Home decor has taken on a much more bold approach than in previous years. Gone are the days of minimalism and perfectionism. In 2021, it’s all about having fun with your home decorating. If you want to learn more about how to keep your home up to date and looking great, then look no further! Here are some tips on how to tap into your inner interior designer and transform your home into the next cover of a home design magazine.
Embrace the bold
The hallmark of the home design scene this season is all about being bold. Bold colors, bold prints, bold everything! If you want your home to stay on-trend this year, you’ll have to reconsider your plain white walls and beige furniture. Instead, go for something more a little more fun and exciting. Step outside your palette comfort zone and go for daring colors such as Kelly Green, Cobalt Blue, or even Aubergine. These bold and vibrant colors will add some richness and luxury to your home. Live a little, be daring, and don’t be afraid to show some personality in your home decor.
Mix and match
When it comes to decorating your home and staying on-trend, this season you’ve got to mix and match. Gone are the days of having a specific design theme throughout your home decor. Rethink those modern, country, or vintage themes and combine them! Mix your retro pieces with your brand new ones and create a whole new style! The moment has never been more perfect to start combing the old with the new. Have different kinds of textures, colors, and pieces throughout your home to give it that extra edge and flare. Don’t be afraid to experiment with combining different things!
Grandmillenialism is all the rage this year, so you’ve got to try this style this season. The Grandmillenial style is a modern twist to the classic aspects of home design. Think combining the comforts of your grandmother’s warm and cozy home, with modern sensibilities such as shopping on a budget. When looking for Grandmillenial-Esque style trinkets to decorate your home with, consider finding some online coupons. As you see what’s available, you can shop at Khols and spend less on all your topiaries and quilted rugs. Grandmillenialism is a great way to bring back some classic style into your home, without breaking the bank.
The next hot home design trend to try is a monochromatic pallet. Say goodbye to accent walls and noisy color schemes and say hello to monochrome! Monochrome pallets have been popular in the past with neutral tones, greys, and whites, but this year it’s all about color. Choose a vibrant, bold color and deck your whole room out in it. Floor to ceiling uniform color schemes can give your home structure and tie the whole room together. It might seem like a bold choice at first, but once you get into it, you’ll never want to go back!
Warm tones over cold tones
The slow but sure replacement of cool tones with warm tones is another popular design trend this year. In the past, cool tone interior color schemes were sleek, sophisticated, and preferred. Nowadays, decorating your home is all about keeping things warm and cozy. Choosing warmer tones creates a sense of calm, peace, and happiness in any living space. Replace those cool-toned walls, furniture, and rugs with warmer ones to spruce up your home this redecorating season. Warm, earthy tones are the way to go for this year’s color pallet.
Embrace the prints
Prints are an aspect of interior design that go in and out of fashion often and it’s hard to keep up with them. This year, the prints are back in and stronger than ever! If you want to stay in style this year, choose prints that are striking, floral, and repetitive. Keeping up with the Grandmillenial style, vintage floral prints are back in. Choose whatever bold color you can think of and find a floral print for it. You can use this print as an accent to your room on carpets or pillows, but why stop there? Don’t be afraid to have your whole wall in floral print to make a statement and keep your home looking trendy.
Eco is the new trend
Staying up to date with this year’s trends is both about your home looking good and being sustainable. Environmental awareness is not only important but stylish in this year’s trends. Sustainable furniture, decorations, and materials are great ways to make your home more eco-conscious. Renewable and sustainable materials such as recycled plastics, bamboo, and wood are all excellent and stylish options. Small changes make a big difference, so get started on replacing some of those outdated materials. Thrifting is another great way to minimize waste, find unique pieces, and keep your home looking great and green.
Perfection is overrated when it comes to home decor this season, which is why going natural is more in. Making your home more one with nature is a great way to switch things up and stay on-trend. Natural materials and fibers, floral prints, and earthy textures and tones are a great place to start. Swap out your sleek metallic furniture for some lighter wooden shades. Replace your faux plants with real ones, and don’t forget to water them! Mix and match textures to give your home the look and feel of natural and real.
Home decorating is a great way to be creative and to give your home a little more personality. Be bold this season and go for daring colors, strong prints, and don’t be afraid to go all out. Monochromatic color schemes and floral prints are a great way to add some excitement and adventure to any room. Take a mix and match approach to your home decorating with Grandmillenial influences. Have fun combining different styles, textures, and materials to make your living spaces look more homey and natural. Don’t forget about the environment when redesigning your home. Natural fibers, sustainable materials, and warm earthy tones are the way to go if you want your home looking fabulous and up to date.
