Our Top Five Home Decor Trends For 2021

Posted on January 19, 2021 by Maggie Erickson

Discover our top 5 home decor trends of 2021

There’s nothing like the freshness of a brand new year to breathe life into everything we do, including sprucing up our home decor. With a clean slate ahead of us, this is the perfect time to seek out home inspiration to create a living space that you will cherish for the next 12 months and beyond. 

Here are our top five favorite home decor trends for 2021:

#1 Grandmillenial chic

The Grandmillenial style is a home decor trend to watch in 2021

All that was old is now new again with this homey decor trend. “Grandmillenial” style puts a fresh spin on nostalgia by bringing elements of days-gone-by into today. Look for classic pieces to give your rooms character and warmth. Things like antique paintings, needlepoint textures, and unique china pieces will really pull this look together.


#2 Plants aplenty

House plants are becoming more and more popular in 2021

Houseplants saw a renaissance over the last year thanks to people exploring different home-based hobbies. This trend isn’t going anywhere in 2021, so embrace your green thumb by bringing some greenery into your home. Not only do plants add a pop of color and freshness to your spaces, you can have some fun expressing yourself with different containers and planters too. If you don’t have the right light for living plants, look to “permanent botanicals.” Gone are the days of tacky fake plants. You can easily find quality artificials that both look and feel like the real thing. 


#3 Multipurpose spaces

Multipurpose spaces sums up 2020, with our home becoming our office, a day care and our gyms


As we’ve all been spending a lot more time at home, many of us have had to learn how to do more with our spaces. For those of us who have been homeschooling at the dining room table or conducting Zoom meetings on the couch, this is your invitation to create workspaces that actually work for you. Accomplish this with creative storage solutions and set-ups that can easily transform dining and living spaces into home offices and back again.


#4 Earthy palettes

2021 home decor styles are all about natural, earthy tones


When it comes to color, this new year is all about natural, earthy tones. From furniture to paint and everything in between, seek out shades of rusts and wines, sagey greens and agrarian browns. There’s no easier way of introducing natural, earthy colors than with an antique touch to your home. Shop our selection of antique furniture or consider a rustic wall hanging for your room. These warm colors will add depth and richness to your spaces, and can make a room feel both cozy and sophisticated at the same time.

#5 Industrial vibes

We are loving the industrial style for your home this year

Keeping in line with this return to more natural palettes and decor, the combination of woods and stone with metal just makes sense in this industrial style. This look is as versatile as it is pleasing to the eye, allowing you to mix traditional and modern influences in spaces that, as mentioned above, have to do more than ever before. Look for pieces made of reclaimed woods and dark metals to bring this look to life in any room. 

No matter your personal style, there’s a little something for everyone in these popular home decor trends for 2021. Find what inspires you and use it to transform your home into a place that’s all your own.
