WHAT’S HOT IN DECOR FOR 2021



MULTI-FUNCTIONAL SPACES

With the COVID pandemic everyone is spending more time at home and not every home has a dedicated office space. In most cases, it’s also more than two family members that are either working remotely or attending school virtually. This can be challenging for even the best floor plans, forcing us to integrate inviting, discreet and functional home offices.


Open backlit shelves in a warm dark wood serve double as a home office space partially hidden behind the gorgeous metal open screen.
Why not a home office?

TEXTURE

Whether it’s textured walls or herringbone patterns on wood, furniture and cabinets; it’s all about the visual contrast. Terrazzo floors, exposed wood beams, and loopy wool (in carpets and on upholstery) are setting the direction for 2021.

One of the year's hottest colours is a great backdrop for metal.

CURVED SHAPES

Not only visually appealing, the curves are reminiscent of nature and respond to our need for softness. Organic in nature, the curves resonate with our inner beings which is another way to be self-aligned.


A channelled round banquette mimics the curve of the table with lots of inviting cushions to soften the rigid channels on the banquette.
Curves, Curves, Curves!!!

PLANTSCAPES

Gardening indoors and out is a new passion. Indoor plants help to clean the air and revive our mood. Our love for the natural wood extends to non-living elements. Look for botanical prints, with a continued emphasis on oversize blooms and foliage in wallpaper patterns.

BUY LOCAL AND HANDMADE

Handmade crafts by local artisan are in. This welcome trend brings a highly personal, relaxed and slightly boho feel to decor. This handcrafted look is a segway to a new colour palette, with all the richness of terracotta, nude hues and dessert colours for art and accessories.


Relaxed yet inviting, this space uses the play on texture with the soft colour palette against the herringbone pattern on the warm wood floor.
BOHO CHIC!!

LIGHT WOODS

Pale woods with ashy undertones are in the forefront, with white oak and maple in the lead. Whether on flooring, kitchen cabinets, or wall cladding and panelling, we like light woods for their homogeneous shades and regular grain. Their beautiful neutrality goes with everything, and with the current state of the world, people long for light and nature. Another benefit of light floors is that they are much more forgiving and user friendly.


The warmth of the natural oak floor against the charcoal rug and sofa makes for an interesting juxtaposition of texture and colour in this bright, airy condo.
