Out with the old, in with the new! Redecorating is a great way to freshen things up while stuck at home, and the new year calls for new interior design trends. Here are a few home décor trends we’re excited to see in 2021.
- A Spacious Table
Everything is happening at home these days, and the dining room table is more utilitarian than ever. The 2021 version of this home décor trend calls for a large, multi-use dining table that can
be used for school, work and meals — sometimes all at once. Some designers suggest the addition of lamps and bookshelves to create a multi-purpose, library-like feel, while others use natural materials to design a farmhouse-style gathering place. This is a piece that can easily fit into your current home décor or inspire an exciting new interior design direction.
Here are a few spacious, multi-use tables we love:
- Roman Dining Table, Seldens Home Furnishings
- Dining Table Set, The Olympia Furniture Co.
- Tall Timbers Extendable Dining Table, Countryside Amish Furniture
- Dark Paint Shades
Whether it’s a painted door, ceiling or an entire room, inky paint is a hot home décor trend this year. If you’re feeling intimidated by the idea of a dark wall, paint your trim instead! A deep black trim will pop against a white wall, adding a clean border that can work with a multitude of decorating styles. Dark paint looks particularly chic when applied to all four walls of a half bath, particularly when paired with metallic fixtures.
A few on-trend shades to try:
- Upgraded Living Rooms
With movies, concerts and even parties taking place over video chat and streaming services, living rooms have really earned the “entertainment center” moniker. A number of people chose to upgrade their televisions in quarantine in mid-2020, but one predicted interior design trend is that home décor will lean toward high-tech, comfort-forward living room upgrades as well. Think: couches with charging ports, coffee tables with lots of storage and more.
Here are some sofas that will make you want to stay home even longer than necessary:
- Tambo Reclining Sectional, The Olympia Furniture Co.
- Savannah Gray Sectional, The Furniture Connexion
- Melrose Sectional, Seldens Home Furnishings
And coffee tables to match:
- Lift-Top Coffee Table, Seldens Home Furnishings
- Coffee Table, The Olympia Furniture Co.
- Delancy Coffee Table, The Furniture Connexion
- Statement Art
After a decade of meticulously arranged gallery walls, statement art is making a decorating comeback. A large, carefully selected piece is much more streamlined and creates a focal point without contributing clutter to a space. This is one home décor trend that goes particularly well with the vaulted ceilings and natural light in a Rob Rice home.
Check out these large-scale pieces:
- Eclipse Abstract Hand Painted Art, Seldens Home Furnishings
- Brutus Wall Art, The Olympia Furniture Co.
- Redondo Coastal Wood Décor, Seldens Home Furnishings
- Indoor Plants
When it’s too cold and wet to garden, houseplants can provide a much-needed defense against the gloom of a Pacific Northwest winter. Aloe, snake plants and philodendron are all particularly low-maintenance indoor plants that can liven up a space and be found at local hardware stores like Home Depot and Lowe’s. Those with an especially green thumb might enjoy tending to orchids, ferns or a fiddle-leaf fig. And of course, if you just want a pop of decorating color and don’t mind adding to your daily dusting routine, high-quality artificial plants have grown in both popularity and aesthetic realism.
Add these chic plant pots to your home:
- Rågkorn, IKEA
- Everest Round Planter, The Olympia Furniture Co.
- Wesley Metal Plant Stands, Crate and Barrel
