After the latest cold snap and the apparent never-ending gloom of post-Christmas blues, we think it’s fair to say that Spring can’t come soon enough! And thankfully, there are little hints popping up, signalling that we won’t have to wait too much longer.
With the earlier sunrises and precious spring flowers emerging, we thought a look at the top interior design trends for Spring 2021 would be just the ticket.
This Season’s Interior Design Trends
Goodbye 2020, hello 2021! There can be no denying that the lockdown restrictions have changed the way we look at our homes - and we have had no choice but to look at them, A LOT! Home is our safe place, so there is an emphasis on comfort and creating a sense of well-being. And with many households having to adapt to function as a home office, a home school and a place of respite from the stressors of the outside world, our homes (and our minds) have had a lot to juggle.
If you are looking for interior inspiration to give your home a cheerful change and put a spring in your step, read on to discover the top trends of Spring 2021.
An emerging trend that is rooted in charming country comfort. This homely look is at ease in petite period properties or any home with traditional touches like beamed ceilings, brick fireplaces and oak furniture. The Cottagecore look is a wonderful combination of quaint patterns, quintessential British homewares and kitsch ornaments that all come together to create a quirky interior and an idyllic escape from the outside world.
An eco-conscious designer's dream – Terrazzo, which was popular back in the 70’s is seeing a resurgence. However, instead of using chips of quarried stone, we are seeing a rise in the use of recycled plastics, construction offcuts and reclaimed glass in Terrazzo tiles. Available in an endless array of colours and versatile in its use, this material would make a showstopping bathroom design but also looks amazing as small touches around the house with home accessories like our Jesmonite Terrazzo coasters.
A seamless blend of Japanese influence and Scandi style, Japandi offers a pared-back look, with a focus on simple silhouettes, natural materials and ceramics. The colour scheme of this look is muted, with minimal touches of colours like cobalt blue and coral pink. Add to the organic elegance of this interior design trend with tall grasses or tropical plants in woven baskets.
Hands up, who needs a holiday? Our fingers are crossed that it won’t be too long until we feel the sand between our toes, but until then, bring the tropics to your interior with this “island shores” interior design trend. Featuring uplifting tropical brights, palm motifs and breezy off-whites, this trend works across bedrooms, bathrooms and living spaces alike. Bring your own tropical oasis to life with exotic greenery and all that’s left is some warmer weather and perhaps a piña-colada to send you on your way.
The vintage scheme is not only comforting but it can be highly personalised depending on which era in time you feel a connection with, or mix and match eras and make it about showcasing your collection of vintage furnishings and homewares. Layer retro pieces with luxe elements like velvet trims and statement lighting to bring your salvaged antiques and bygones to life.
