1. Yellow and gray
Remember grandma's sunny yellow kitchen? Color authority, Pantone Color Institute™, has brought it back along with a dependable gray as its 2021 Color of the Year. This pretty pair is an ideal combination of strength and hopefulness.
This nostalgic trend, often called Farmcore, embraces a sustainable way of life and has us yearning for days gone by with feminine florals, family heirlooms and warm colors like yellow, green and brown.
3. House plants
Plants are back in style and offer a pop of color tucked into bookshelves, home offices and kitchen counters. Don’t have a green thumb? Artificial plants are affordable and practically foolproof (we promise not to tell).
4. Wicker everywhere
No longer exiled to the patio, this material has earned its place inside. Wicker and rattan are making a huge comeback in the form of hanging pendant lights, neutral wall décor and modern seating.
Wallpaper is big news for 2021 interiors and can be adapted to suit any space. Let your personality shine through with romantic botanicals, bold colors, fun animal prints or contemporary metallics.
6. Statement mirrors
Trade in your plain mirror for a more decorative one that doubles as artwork. A gold vintage mirror like this one creates a focal point for a room and looks stunning on dark floral wallpaper.
7. Lux headboards
Be bold in the bedroom with an extravagant headboard like this one. Its soft blue velvet fabric with capitone stitching is reminiscent of a Chesterfield style sofa, timeless and luxurious. Have fun coordinating your headboard with glamorous linens, pillows or a decadent throw.
8. GlobalI influences
Inspired by earthy colors and natural textures such as wood and rattan (see #4), the global influence trend celebrates exotic design elements from the African plains, tropical islands and southeast Asia.
