After a year of spending more time than ever at home due to the Covid-19 pandemic, many of us have been looking into enhancing our properties to give them a well needed refresh or makeover. All of this time spent on video calls and creating our work from home space has inspired us to modernise our homes to create a space we can enjoy spending so much time in, making a relaxing space to kick back in after a long day of work.
Whether you are considering working with architects in London to completely revamp your space or are just looking for some simple style tips to add some decorative touches to your home, we delve into some of our favourite home decoration ideas for 2021.
Enjoy the outdoors from within
Bringing a splash of colour and the relaxing impact of nature into the home, indoor plants are becoming an absolute staple for many homeowners this year. From leafy trees to intricate succulents, having plants around the home is great for purifying the air and enhancing our mental wellbeing. Spice up the empty corners of your room and sparse shelves with some new leafy additions to the family!
We have noticed a rise in unique designs and eye-catching patterns for flooring upgrades. From simple diamond flooring in the bathroom with contrasting black and white finishes to porcelain tiled hallways with detailed Victorian designs, there are no limits. By pairing statement flooring with neutral shades of paint for the walls and minimalistic furniture, create a modern aesthetic and be the envy of your friends and family.
Add splashes of colour
By combining popular monochrome designs with pops of bright colour, create a unique design in line with your preferences to put your own personal spin on the trend. This year we are loving yellow, a mood boosting colour to bring some sunshine indoors all year round. Whether you choose to add a feature wall or just try out new textiles, ornaments and framed prints, embrace full flexibility and enjoy the sudden bursts of colour throughout the room which can be interchanged as you please.
Be at one with nature
The growth of natural materials not only adds stunning features to the home, but is a step in the right direction when it comes to the environment. Shoppers are loving wicker, twine and rope embellishments across furniture and decorative features thanks to their beautiful neutral shades and one-of-a-kind appearance. On top of neutral aesthetic, brands have been putting an emphasis on using recycled materials or finding natural sources which are acquired and manufactured sustainably to have a positive impact on our carbon footprint.
Around the world influences
Cultures across the globe are home to unique patterns and outstanding designs which offer unique additions to the home, utilising worldwide trends to design a home that suits you. Depending on whether you source unique items online or pick up one-of-a-kind pieces from your travels, there is a story behind every item.
