We finally made it to the new year! The start of a new year often means plans to refresh and update the home. What better way to kick off the year by exploring some of these 2021 design trends? Which ones have you seen making their way into homes and which ones appeal to you most?

Maybe it’s because we’re spending more time at home that we’re seeing a resurgence of “homey” designs and decor amongst the 2021 design trends. Bring out the floral wallpaper, antique centerpieces, and vintage decor to arouse comfort and nostalgia. This revival of tradition challenges homeowners to modernize their homes with what they already have or to carefully select and repurpose secondhand items.

Peel-and-stick wallpaper is one of the new starring trends of the year. They’re the perfect way to quickly refresh any part of your home and can be switched out on a whim. This is ideal for areas and rooms you want to accent and not necessarily cover entirely of wallpaper. It’s also a wonderful way to liven up small spaces like quarter baths and closets.

Gone are the days of plain subway tiles as homeowners desire handmade tiles that are one-of-a-kind. Although more of an investment than mass produced ones, these tiles add a wow-factor to your home that are entirely worth it.

Now that more people are both living and working at home, many want an environment that is easy to maintain. This trendy-warehouse look includes rugged and vintage designs, a mix of wood and metals, and favors exposed elements like brick and concrete. It’s a refined “unrefined” look that still feels like home but its low-maintenance appeal lends itself to an eclectic style.
