Take a look below to see whether one of the trends of this year appeals to you and your home’s overall look. 

Rustic Vogue 

The classic appealing look of rustic vogue along with modern comforts of a porcelain vs natural stone home has taken charge in 2021. The modern yet classic look usually requires a home that already has appealing features. These could include exposed beams or original flooring. The balance between new and old can be tough to attain but the look it gives a home is incredible. Reclaimed wood creates this look as they show grain/texture and not items that are cleanly finished. 

Yellow and Gray

A bright yellow and pale gray have been named the color combination of the year by Pantone. The Pantone Color Institute executive director Leatrice Eisemann stated,”The selection of two independent colors highlight how different elements come together to express a message of strength and hopefulness that is both enduring and uplifting, conveying the idea that it’s not about one color or one person, it’s about more than one.”


The need for comfort during 2020 has increased due to the uncertainty the year presented. Cottagecore provides that comfort as it is very simplistic and familiar in many homes. Elegance can also be achieved with a few tweaks like adding premium barware or gold accessories. 

Distant Shores

Most people dream of a beach lifestyle at some point in their lives. The relaxed lifestyle can be supported by a great design in the home. Interiors that are based on distant shores tend to give a relaxing feel to a home and a space that homeowners can truly rejuvenate in. Floral designs can be perfect for the space in your home when aiming for this look. Yellows and light greens are staples of these designs that exude relaxation and a release of stress.


Vintage has made a comeback in a variety of areas including interior design. There are so many more vintage marketplaces than in the past in larger cities. The pandemic has limited these markets which is a shame as there are so many unique vintage pieces of furniture and decorations. The building in a vintage style is going to have to be done over time as vintage pieces can be quite expensive. Flea markets can be extremely useful for those looking for vintage furniture or decorations on a budget. 

The home is more important than ever with social distancing restrictions still in place. Consider the interior design trends above as you will not regret revamping your home!
