Style Watch: Home Decor Trends for 2021

If 2020 taught us anything, it’s that our home is our haven. So, it’s not surprising that our stay-at-home life of last year inspired the home design trends we’ll be seeing everywhere in 2021. We’ve rounded up some of the top home decor trends of 2021 and easy ways to create the look in your own home. Spoiler alert: expect to see lots of joy, comfort, and nods to nature this year. 

Illuminating Yellow

Pantone, in an unprecedented move, boldly rolled out two colors of the year for 2021: Ultimate Gray and Illuminating, an optimistic hue of yellow. Since gray has been the darling go-to for years now, implementing this dynamic duo might be as easy as adding bursts of sunshiney yellow to your gray decor.

Neutrals + Earth Tones

Warm and comfy will rule the roost this year with down-to-earth colors. Continuing the trend of making our homes feel even more inviting, we can expect to see earthy neutrals and natural woods cozied up with homey hues like olive green and burnt orange everywhere

Shop these earthy tones.


Natural Elements + Textures

The use of natural materials and highly textured elements like jute and rattan continues to trend this year. This outdoorsy look layers well for an easy-going vibe. When paired with plants and botanical prints, the resulting style is decidedly grounded in nature.

Create your own natural vibe.
