28 Jan Top interior design trends of 2021
With nearly 650,000 monthly Google searches for ‘interior design’ in Australia and New Zealand, our desire for a stylish house is evidently on the rise. Fueling our interior design hunger, many of us spent more time in our homes during 2020 than ever before, in addition to our constant exposure to visuals on social media.
The top interior design trend of 2021 is ‘Rustic’. Rustic interiors are defined by ruggedness and letting natural beauty shine. The focus is to create a relaxing atmosphere by highlighting the use of wood, stone, leaves, and other organic elements. Rather than worry about perfect lines, rustic allows the character of each piece to stand out. From knots in the wood to rust on metal, this style celebrates character in a big way.
The second most popular design trend in 2021 is ‘Cottagecore’. Cottagecore (also known under the name Farmcore or Countrycore) is inspired by a romanticized interpretation of western agricultural life.
With the year we’ve had, it’s no surprise that spa interior designs rank third. For a home-spa design style, wooden textures like reclaimed wood in bathrooms, big candles and low shelving will invite a more relaxing 2021 in your rooms.
The home office interior style claims fourth place. This house design became massive in 2020 and is expected to continue to grow within the next few years. Feature walls, accent lamps and colourful storage are a few ways of bringing your workspace to life.
