Patterns with Personality


As our social interaction has been limited, people are turning to their homes as an outlet for creative expression and personalization. There is less timidity around going bold in color and pattern as a trend toward maximalism is quickly gaining popularity. A great way to incorporate this in your home is through upholstery and art, but another interesting option for those who would like to try this trend on for size is removable wallpaper. Consider creating an accent wall in your home office space to really showcase your personality during videoconferences.

The Lighter Side


You can embrace this trend whether you're boho chic or love the modern farmhouse vibe as lighter woods will work with any style. This color wood is not only airy and uplifting, but as an added bonus, it gives the feeling of an expanded space.

Grandmillenial


What is Grandmillennial? This trend blends current design with styles you might see in your grandparents' home (i.e. Victorian-era furniture, busy patterns and lots of crochet.) Because this design style hinges on antiques, it's a fantastic way to sustainably furnish your home with affordable long-lasting pieces.

The New Black


In light of all the stress and uncertainty of 2020, we are in a much greater need of our own personal refuge and relaxing space. Blues and blue-greens are perfect color choices to help foster a soothing environment and calm the mind—which understandably makes this trend more attractive than ever. Our top color pick? Benjamin Moore's 2021 Color of the Year Aegean Teal.

Nature Made


There was a strong interest in natural and organic materials over the past year, and this trend isn't going anywhere in 2021. Natural materials such as rattan, cane webbing, ceramic and leather will continue to create depth and texture as we seek to create a connection with nature inside the home.

Home Office in Focus


It shouldn't come as a surprise that home offices have outranked bedrooms as the 2nd most renovated space in our homes in 2020. As many of us are now working from home, the importance of having a space that is conducive for productivity became abundantly clear. Instead of temporary set-ups, the trend is shifting into home office renovation by creating larger, well-defined spaces. For expert tips, be sure and check out our post on how to create a home office that you'd gladly spend hours in.
