We’ve been spending a lot of time at home in 2021 and it has made a huge impact on the upcoming interior design trends. Our homes have become much more multifunctional and we’ve been craving more tranquility in our homes than ever before. Read on for the 5 most exciting interior design trends that we have spotted for the upcoming year!
Besides a place to relax and unwind, our homes have become the place where we have been homeschooling our children, working from home and sharing our joys and sorrows. This change has meant that single-use spaces are a thing of the past and our house has become a much more multifunctional space. This multi-functional character is reflected in the desire to create different zones in our homes. You can create these zones by painting different colours on your wall to suggest separate spaces, or you can create actual separate spaces by using folding screens, curtains or even glass walls.
As many of us are still working remotely, the home office has made its definitive entry into our homes. A separate office is ideal, but with some creativity it is definitely possible to create a comfortable workplace in your living room. In this blog, we tell you everything you need to consider when creating a workplace in your own home.
Our home as a tranquil retreat
With everything that’s been going on in the world and us spending so much time at home, our homes have become not only functional, but also a safe haven in which we can relax and unwind. You can create a comforting home by using neutral tones combined with minimalist design. This means a few carefully selected accessories and choosing high quality and durable furniture and fabrics for our homes.

Another big trend this year is the use of round shapes. These round shapes are playing a part in creating a home that is comfortable and relaxed as round shapes feel friendly, soft and warm. We’re seeing this trend in sofas with round shapes, oval and round tables and organically shaped vases and accessories.
It’s a good thing that sustainability is becoming more and more mainstream, which means it isn’t really a trend anymore, but we’d still like to mention it on our list. Design is becoming more sustainable and our appliances, lighting and heating are all becoming more efficient and therefore more sustainable. When decorating our homes, we’re also continuing to choose sustainable options, which means we’re going for furniture that has been sustainably produced and will last us a lifetime, like our linen curtains!
