Our homes became the center of our worlds in 2020. As we move forward into 2021, what home design trends are expected to emerge? Here are some top predictions from interior designers. 

  1. Neutrals Mixed with Bold Colors – Neutral tones will never go out of style, but some homeowners are saying “yes” to pops of color. Pantone led the way by choosing not just one, but two independent colors for 2021: Ultimate Gray and Illuminating (a cheery yellow). As Pantone explained, the combo of a neutral and vibrant hue “highlights how different elements come together to support one another.” Now isn’t that the story of 2021? 
  2. Entertainment Spaces — “Staying in is the new going out,” says designer Brad Ford. Expect more attention paid to creating entertainment opportunities at home with bigger TVs, better sound systems, mood lighting, lounge seating, and substantial dining tables that mimic the feeling of going out. 
  3. Multi-Functional Living Rooms – Now, more than ever, living rooms need to be comfortable, approachable, and functional. Designers are refashioning these spaces by adding a games table, library table, and several seating areas for reading and relaxing that allow the family to be together in the same room no matter the activities they’re doing.
