Spring Trend Report: Our Favorite Interior Trends for Spring of ‘21
Updated: Mar 24
The new year is in full swing with spring finally here, and now that a few months have passed in 2021 we’re seeing a lot of awesome trends taking hold! If you’re anything like us, and we bet you are, you like to change things up in your home seasonally or even more often than that! We feel that switching up your interior style can make your home — and your mood — feel better. We thought we’d save you the trouble of hunting down the latest and greatest trends of spring ‘21, so we’ve rounded up our favorites here for you! How easy is that!
There are a lot of items in interior design that have recently gone the added texture route (think: three dimensional wallpaper, textured tiles, even glass) but now textured furniture is making a fantastic comeback as well! Gone are the days of boring, plain and flat cabinets, wardrobes, sideboards, drawers and desks! So if you want to try something new and refreshing, find some textured furniture for your home.
If you're someone that doesn’t like to use a lot of permanent color in your home then this trend works great for you! Bring a statement vase or two (or three!) into your dining or living room, kitchen, bedroom, or home office to give it a pop of color & style without going overboard. The best thing about this trend is that a statement vase or piece can be changed out seasonally, so you don't have to commit to a color you're not sure of. We love pieces that feature unusual shapes, bright coordinating colors, and (you guessed it) cool textures!
The color green has been a huge hit so far this year. Science shows that just looking at something green can decrease your heart rate and alleviate stress, so can you really blame us for loving it this year?! Green also promotes a sense of connection with nature, a huge movement of this year. You can make the most of this trend by using shades of green in any room you like, as a primary wall color, an accent, or even the color of a statement piece. One of our favorite uses of green this year is as a kitchen cabinet or island color! Forest, sage, and olive greens are all trending right now, and we're guessing green will keep on trending in varying shades for the foreseeable future!
No surprise here, but home offices are a huge home design trend this year. Everyone wants their own space at home where they can be alone and focus on getting work done. The pandemic has forced a lot of people to work from home and, as we all know, it is much easier to work from home if you have a designated space to work in. Analyzing its own data, Modsy found that requests for home office design had jumped by 40% last year. Got a spare bedroom or basement space? It'd be perfect as an office! Don't quite have a whole extra room to dedicate? That's fine too, just carve out some space in a quiet location and make it yours with a desk and a few chic accessories.
Crittall Style Windows and Glass Frames
This simple, industrial and symmetrical style (if you aren’t quite sure what Crittall style is, here’s a brief explanation) is making a beautiful comeback — and not just as windows and doors, but as walls, rear extensions, room dividers and even shower screens. Its trademark thin black frames are extremely sturdy, and tap into the super popular industrial style, giving your space a modern and refined industrial look.
Mid Century Modern
We don’t think mid-mod will ever truly go completely out of style! And for good reason — its fifties-chic low slung lines and natural wood tones have been influencing modern design trends for years now. You can spot this trend in tons of bars, restaurants, and even apartment buildings (not to mention that it’s popping up in home decor stores all over the place!) The mid-century look is reminiscent of sunny, happy times and brings the kind of positive energy to a space that we all need right now!
