Tags: Trends to keep an eye out for in 2021


2020 left us with beautiful trends that took over the homes of many. We saw the return of vintage and patina, rattan and wicker, the use of colour and more. This year new styles have emerged, a mixture of old and new and a lot of colours! Here are a few of the trends that we will see in 2021.
From now until the end of December, we are giving you the ultimate Christmas bucket list that will keep you busy throughout the festive season. Each one of these ideas can be done, with family or friends or by yourself. Save the photo, print it out, stick it up and tick off what you’ve done this month!

Grandmillennial Grandeur

A style that is the complete opposite of sleek and modern. This trend brings in cozy, gorgeous florals and a sense of elegance into 2021. Patterns are essential in the grand millennial design, you will have classic prints like chintz, plaid, heavy curtains, wall coverings and toile.



All over Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest, you can see that plants have taken over homes. People have been incorporating plants into their home decor. It is no longer just about taking care of a plant it is about adding freshness through the greenery.

Multifunctional Spaces

One of the biggest demands in a home during 2020 and continues into 2021 is a multifunctional space/ home office. Find an area in your home that is not used a lot and turn that into your office space, make it your own. Design a clean, open space where you can work and focus on what you're doing.

Earthy tones

Nature and earthy inspiration, a trend that continues to grow to create a relaxing environment in your home, helps to create a sense of coziness. You can incorporate earth tones through fabrics, metal finishes, paint, and home decor.


A style that will never get old, if anything the older it is, the better. Keep in mind not to overdo it with vintage decor let it be statement pieces. Like a hutch in the living room, vintage lights in the hallway, or a vintage dresser. It is great to incorporate these elements into your home as it can also be a great conversation starter.


Maximalism means more of everything, more decor, more of your favourite patterns, more stylish designs, and much more. The key to this style is repetition, whether it be repetition in colour, patterns, or finishes. Have them repeated throughout the house so that it does not look random?
