Summer Interior Trends - 2021
There is no doubt that lockdown has changed the way we see our homes, and for many our homes have become a place of refuge and sanctuary.
That’s why this summer is the perfect opportunity to brighten up your home. There’s something distinctly beautiful about summer interior decor – the breezy light fabrics, muted colours, natural fibres and boho textures – that makes it feel as though you’re bringing the sunshine in.
From the growing importance of sustainable materials to luxury elements and a celebration of individuality, our 2021 interior trend edit will provide you with a curated look that will bring your home into summer with style.
The Dulux Colour of The Year 2021 is ‘Brave Ground’ – a bolstering shade that connects us back to nature and the simple things in life. This warm earthy tone creates a sense of stability, growth and potential.
‘Brave Ground’ is the perfect base colour, and works splendidly with pops of sage green, pastel pink and inky blues. These earthy tones are thought to be empowering and provide courage, helping us to embrace change. It’s a shade that can make any room in your home feel like the perfect sanctuary from the outside world.
Pantone Colour Of The Year 2021
This year’s Pantone colour of the year is a striking combination of soft grey and punchy bright yellow – two complementary shades that create a strong and positive vibe when paired together.
Yellow is also thought to be the colour of happiness and after the past year, I’m sure we could all do with a bit of that! Bold yellow accents can make a fabulous statement against softer colours, and are sure to lift everyone’s spirits.
A technical term that simply means design that focuses on our innate human connection to nature and incorporates nature at its core. It’s all about bringing the outdoors in.
Biophilic design is growing in popularity as more people than ever before opt to live in urban areas. We also know how much nature makes us feel good, not to mention the benefits to our health!
Living and working in the same space over the past year has been tough on many of us – switching the dining table to the office desk, to an eating space at the end of the day, isn’t an ideal situation for anyone!
Try to find an alcove or section of wall for a desk, it doesn’t have to be massive, but just an area that feels separate. Zone the different areas with rugs, artwork, lighting and even plants! These simple touches will help separate your work life from your home life.
Textured furniture is the latest part of the rigid renaissance that surfaces have seen over the past few years. Tiles have taken a tactile twist and we’ve seen 3D wallpapers pop up too. Now it’s time for furniture to have its time in the limelight.
Be it cabinets, wardrobes, sideboards, desks or drawers, we can wave goodbye to flat surfaced furniture and say hello to textured furniture as grooves take centre stage.
Make A Statement
With more and more people opting for an open plan layout and minimal design features, the popularity of bold statement pieces has been steadily on the rise. It makes for a great focal point and also allows you to put your quirky tastes on display.
Adding your personal design touches to your interiors is important in making your space feel more homely.
