2020 gave many of us ample time to embark on the home renovation and redecorating projects that we may have been putting off for months or even years. But, for many, the job of decorating is never done, especially as new trends emerge, new colors catch our eye, and special pieces get added to our collections.

Whether you want to evolve the look of your home, or need inspiration, here is a look at three home decorating trends for 2021.

Yellow and gray everywhere.

According to the purveyor of all things color, Pantone, yellow, and gray are the colors of 2021. The company named pale gray and illuminating (a bright, bold yellow) their colors of the year for 2021. According to Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, “The selection of two independent colors highlight how different elements come together to express a message of strength and hopefulness that is both enduring and uplifting, conveying the idea that it’s not about one color or one person, it’s about more than one.”

Incorporating pops of bold.

Fabric designers and manufacturers expect to see spaces making bold statements. According to Pantone’s 2021 predictions, “Vibrant colors like intense purples, saturated oranges, and lively pinks are a great way to add a touch of fun. These invigorating shades energize any environment, whether you make a big commitment — like paint or upholstery — or add in small accessories for a pop of color.”

Luckily, many furniture manufacturers offer couches, chairs, and other pieces in these bold hues to make adding these pops as easy and comfortable as possible. According to Joybird reviews, for example, many of their pieces come in up to 65 different colors and upholstery options.

Embracing the past.

These pieces easily add function, opulence, or depth to your space inexpensively. Furniture makers are aware that homeowners like to add those retro pieces so they use that in their new designs.
