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.

Do you already have an idea of what designs you'll be incorporating into your home in the new year? Have any tips? Let us know what they are on our latest Instagram post!

Homemade Christmas Decor

Holiday decor can often be costly, and for something that’s only on show for a month or so a year, you may prefer to opt for the less expensive DIY route. It’s a great way to spend time with family, plus - homemade decorations always end up being the ones that mean the most. 

Like these adorable Wooden Bead Snowman Christmas tree ornaments. 

I love the Scandinavian feel of these Glass Floating Signs, you can pretty much do this with things you have laying around the house already. If you don’t happen to have extra photo frames laying around, head to your local thrift store. This project would look great with some antique-style frames! 

And Christmas decorating is never complete without a wreath! This Modern Hoop Wreath will be sure to make your front door stand out! And bonus, it only takes 10 minutes to make! 

Homemade Christmas Gifts and Stocking Stuffers

As we unfortunately are not be able to spend this Christmas with our usual friend and family groups, making homemade Christmas presents is a great way to show just how much you love and appreciate everyone. Here are a few ideas that will definitely leave your friends and family impressed.

Can anyone ever have too many tea towels? I don’t think so. These easy and affordable DIY tea towels are great for grandparents and other family members. Kids will love getting creative for this activity too.

Christmas Baking

Christmas is the best excuse in the book to indulge yourself in homemade baked goods and delicious warm drinks, and these recipes are no exception.

Is it really Christmas without some Homemade Ginger Bread Men? These gingerbread men are so tasty, and it makes a great activity for the whole household.  Whether you eat them all yourself or gift them to your loved ones. This recipe is a must-try! 

Hot Chocolate Bombs seem to be the new trend, and for good reason! Who doesn’t want more chocolate in their hot chocolate? These Snowman Hot Chocolate Bombs look fun to make and the end result is fantastic!

If I had to choose one sweet that perfectly captures the Christmas spirit, it would be a fruit cake.  

This Apricot Walnut Fruit Cake Recipe is perfect for the Christmas season.
