Next year will be the year of the decorative explosion in the interior design sector. After years of enjoying styles such as industrial, Nordic or navy, the time has come to unify trends in the same space and to achieve eclectic designs full of personality and good taste.
If you are passionate about interior design or are thinking of giving your home a different air, do not miss this article. In it, we gather the trends in interior design that will break into 2021. You will not know which one to stay with.
Betting on a single decorative style is part of the past
As we mentioned at the beginning of the post, 2021 will be the year of the revolution in the field of interior design. Thus, it will depend on your ability to link and adapt styles, the fact of getting unique and completely personal spaces.
Gone are styles like Nordic or Scandinavian. Next year we will no longer have to decide which style we like the most to decorate every corner of our home. It will give way to the combination of different trends that can coexist in a single space or can be used in different rooms creating multiple environments.
We are aware that it is not easy to adapt the minimalism of some styles with the Rococo character of others, but in the balance will be the key to elegance and distinction. The combination of different styles will lead to difficult spaces to imitate. Would you be able to visualize an industrial environment with rustic touches? And a navy style with ethnic touches? Next year you will not have to imagine it and you will be able to experiment without fear because any decorative element will be of the most rabid news.
In ecological housing, ecological materials
We know that modern architecture is aimed at sustainability and environmentalism. A few years ago, it is committed to building with natural building materials and respectful of the environment in which it is built. Therefore, it seems reasonable to internalize this philosophy and also apply it to interior design.
Thus, we will find in our homes spaces combined with nature in which relaxing and disconnecting from the routine will be easier and easier. We will welcome you to materials such as cork, esparto or wood that we must integrate in an aesthetic but also functional way.
These three materials give a lot of play in the field of decoration. Wood is still in fashion but next year it will bet on wood with darker shades such as ebony, granadillo or oak. We will see how the furniture stands out above any other ornament. The esparto, will provide a rustic touch to any environment. This material extracted from various wild plants will be imposed on carpets, blinds and even lamps. And as for cork, we can’t think of a better way to integrate it than by covering the wall of a study or office. In addition to aesthetic, it will help you keep all your notes in order.
The floors and walls acquire a special role
In 2021, no decorative element can be made available to chance. Therefore, paying special attention to the walls and floor of your home will be a success in order to follow the trends indoors. The tiles will have a greater relevance in the decoration and will return the terracotta and the terrazzo! Who said they were materials reserved only for terraces and patios? The terrazzo will shine again on the countertops of our kitchens and the terracotta although it seems difficult to use indoors, will be the perfect material to make shelves integrated in the walls or to raise arches that separate different rooms.
In addition, the variety of existing designs on wallpapers will make you unable to resist combining them by creating authentic works of art in every corner. They are easy to put on, avoid having to paint every so often and give every wall of your home an authentic personality.
Japanese philosophy makes its way into homes
You have probably heard about the Wabi Sabi and the Japandi style, both of Japanese origin, but if you do not know them, we will present them to you because surely next year you will decide to bet on one of them.
The Wabi Sabi is a style that consists in taking advantage of the beauty of the old, of the imperfect. Thus, it will no longer be so rare to have a mirror of stripped wood without sanding in the living room, lamps inherited from an ancestor in the bedroom and that vintage-style rocking chair that we did not know where to place, in the hall. We can’t think of a better way to recycle and take advantage of elements that may seem old and even broken, but that will give a new meaning to interior decoration.
Japandi is nothing more than a combination of Nordic style with Japanese. Both bet on minimalism as a guarantee of success in interior design, although each one has its own peculiarities. Coming from different parts of the world, the Nordic style has given us the feeling of relaxation offered by the white and gray colors and the sense of order derived from the absence of excessive decorative elements, the Japanese however provides warmer colors resulting in environments more welcoming and timeless elegance much more durable. Combining them will undoubtedly be a success for next year.
The art of combining colors
Just as we expect a revolution in materials, styles and furniture, we also expect an explosion of colors in which it will be difficult to know how to combine them. The burgundy, the watermelon red, the lilac and different shades of yellow that will go from the lemon to the mustard will be the ideal colors to create warm and welcoming atmospheres that will work independently of the season of the year in which we are.
With white we will always be before the winning horse in the field of interior design, but the combination of this with other current colors such as gray, black and beige, and the incorporation in the correct proportions of any of those we have quoted will give excellent aesthetic results.
There are only three months left. We are looking forward to a promising year in terms of interior design trends, are you ready to enjoy it?
