There’s nothing like coming home after a long day and feeling a wave of relief wash over you. The place you call home isn’t just four walls; it’s made up of trinkets, memorabilia, and all your favorite decor. But what if your home still feels like it’s missing something?
That means it’s time to find some new furniture! You’d be surprised how much a new piece can transform your space. The best part is that redecorating your home doesn’t even require you to spend all your savings; there are affordable options that can make big changes.
What type of furniture should you be looking at? Let’s look at all the stylish new trends for some inspiration!
If you feel like your space is, well, a bit boring, then you might want to look at something bold to bring your home to life. Look no further than the abstract style, which is a trend that is inspired by expressionist art. This means hand-drawn sketches, bold geometric shapes, and playful colors to add personality to your home.
Look for furniture that comes in bold colors or has interesting abstract designs. Don’t be afraid to combine pieces that you think might clash; part of the fun of redesigning your space is exploring what brings life to your home and what doesn’t. Start with searching for unique home decor, whatever that means to you, and see how it fits in the space.
Before you know it, you’ll be collecting a variety of items that will turn your home into an abstract painting.
Another big trend you’re bound to see in 2021 is cottagecore. This might sound like a strange music genre, but it stems from the romanticized interpretation of Western farm life. It emphasizes ideas of simplicity and balance with nature.
Does this sound appealing to you? Even if you aren’t living in a little cottage, you can still have your space fit that style; rocking chair cushions, plants, and all.
The idea is to find things that fit that cottage aesthetic. This means things like vintage crockery, antique wooden furniture, embroidered art – the works. There’s a big emphasis on nature, so try incorporating fabrics with vegetable art on it or maybe lampshades shaped like a mushroom; this is the time to get creative with what you find!
If you find yourself scratching your head, visit some local farmhouses and take some notes. You’ll quickly catch on to the aesthetic. You might be surprised to see that even New York furniture options will fit into that quaint cottage lifestyle; all it takes is some digging.
Now let’s move away from the humble serenity of cottagecore and move on to the confident and sassy glam style. This time though, the glamour you know has been reinvented. You might think of glam as silvers, purples, and pinks, but now it has been taken up a notch, becoming more mature while still keeping the same ethos.
Think of combining the elegance of the 1930s with the sass of the 1970s, and you get eclectic glam. Look for key pieces in rich tones, like ruby or cobalt blue, and mix them with warmer tones like bronze or rose. Layer the classic bling and metallic accents, like gold or copper, you see where we’re going with this.
Buy extravagant pieces like a cocktail trolley or plush textiles that bring a whole new meaning to the word luxury. It’s everything about classic glam without the outdated taste. Velvet, marble, brass; all the things you think of when it comes to extravagance aren’t out of the question.
With so much time at home, people are rethinking what ‘less is more’ entails. It’s time to shift away from minimalism as we know it and welcome a new approach. The same idea of a clean space without excess clutter or distractions, simple living if you will.
This is different from the cottagecore simple living; it’s more tailored for people who live in urban areas that don’t want to live in a home resembling a vacant art gallery or an overwhelming Van Gogh painting. The middle ground is there, and you have to know how to get there.
Everyone could use a few lessons from Scandinavian interior design, characterized by its simplicity and functionality. There’s a lot of natural materials involved, like leather, wood, and hemp. You don’t even need to keep everything white.
Play with neutral or subdued tones like sage or periwinkle. Find furniture that can double as storage that isn’t too flashy or bold. Focus more on what is functional and can act as multiple pieces.
It may not be easy to travel to a tropical paradise, but you can bring that style to your home! If you’re looking for a joyful and vibrant way to decorate your home, this is it. Think big botanical prints, wicker furniture, and an homage to surf and sand.
Look for furniture that comes in colors like mustard, deep greens, nude pinks, and blues. You’ll also want to keep an eye out for wooden furniture and velvet accents. If you don’t think you can splurge on an entirely new set of home decor, then the solution is to use wallpaper.
There are plenty of stick and peel wallpapers that will completely transform your space without breaking the bank. Find one with big tropical leaves to bring some paradise through your doors.
Also, be sure to get plants. Plants are huge right now (haven’t they always been?) and for a good reason! Not only do they add a sense of tropical lush to your home, but they look amazing for practically any home decor style.
