2021 Home Design Trends & Goals

While we all spend more time in our households, redecorating may just be the perfect 2021 goal to get the new year started. Here are my top tips when it comes to home decor goals for 2021.

Up your home office game

While many people transition to working full time from home, upping your home office game will provide a more comfortable, clean, and organized feel to your space. Easy tweaks such as adding paintings, shelving, or storage space for filing/paperwork can make a huge difference to your home office.

Add in more greenery

Incorporating household plants into your decor can help refresh your air and brighten your day. As HGTV explains, a few easy-to-care-for indoor plants in a beautiful textured stoneware pot will do the trick. For example, this Bloomingville Stoneware pot with raised polka dots can be purchase from Amazon, and can really bring in some style to your green spaces.

Out with the all-white

As Insider predicts, the age of minimalistic, all-white interiors may be coming to an end in the new year. If you're thinking of repainting your bedroom or any space in your home, keep this in mind!

"For a few years now, we've been making everything from walls to countertops bright white," she told Insider. "Next year, I predict people will return to creating visual interest through colour.” Those looking to give their all-white interiors more pizzazz without adding bright colours can try combining different light-coloured patterns and textures.

The “grandmillenial” look may be in!


Goerzen has described the rising "grandmillennial" trend as a modern revival of homey design elements that you might find in your grandparents' home. This means we can expect to see more vintage touches throughout home design in 2021 in order to bring more comfort and tradition into households. After all, a cozy home sounds ideal as we are all spending so much more at home. This is something we may see a lot of very soon.
