Top 5 Interior Design Trends in 2021: Give your London interior a fresh start!

Now that we've finally wrapped up this dreadful 2020, we can begin 2021 with a clean start. Last year, our homes became the No1 place we spend our times, most of us working from home. Many among us are starving for something fresh&new, so if you made a complete home refurbishment as your New Year’s resolution or just want to refresh your interior, you came to the right place! We collected the latest interior trends for you.

1. Vintage & nostalgia

Vintage pieces have started to become extremely trendy in the last couple of years, it was no different in 2020 either. With the popularity of TikTok, every one of us became a specialist in many industries, including interior design with the re-wallpapered rooms, renovated furniture pieces and so on. It definitely influenced the rise in nostalgia which will naturally increase in 2021.

“I think as we move forward, we will increasingly combine the old and new, the classical and modern— rooms that are all modern or all antique do not age as well (...)” - Thomas Jayne, designer.

The popularity of ’80s definitely is going to stay!

2. Sustainable design

As Millennials become more and more concerned about the Environment & have started to form their lives around this self-awareness, the desire for sustainable pieces will hit the interior design & furniture industry.

Eco-friendly furniture is based on cycle & recycle. Renewable, sustainable materials are hemp or organic cotton, bamboo, wood, rattan or seagrasses.

There are a couple of sustainable furniture brands on the market right now, like Sustainable Furniture UK, Made Trade, Emeco or Simbly.

3. Statement pieces

Statement pieces elevate any dull interior and give a sophisticated, more high-end touch. Statement pieces work as an anchor; they lead the direction and guide to style the rest of the decoration.

“When we’re designing spaces, we have to decide who is going to be our leading lady and then allow her to be the star!” – Donna Mondi

Many things can be statement pieces, regardless of their shape, form, colour or size. It doesn’t have to be extravagant; the main task of a statement piece is to draw your eyes! Choose a furniture or décor item that is your style and taste and is unique for you.

4. More wellness!

2020 taught us a good lesson about our home being our sanctuary and safe haven. We have to improve our homes and create nooks that are comfortable retreats. If you live in a Victorian period property, you can create a tucked-away nook under your staircase. If you have a convertible loft in your home, you can create your own library, a family room or a second bedroom in your attic space.

Having a nook in your home is essential, especially if you live with others. This will serve as a private getaway and provide a little break from the usual life cycle.

5. A mix of Nordic & Japanese

In 2021, when it comes to your home, less is more. Simple, more comfortable and functional interiors will be in this year. Both Japanese and Scandinavian interiors tend to be minimalist, emphasising light tones and natural materials like wood. The goal is to create a more airy, open and balanced atmosphere in your home.
