7 interior-design trends that will disappear this year, and 8 you'll see everywhere
WHAT'S OUT IN 2021?
#1 Shiplap is falling out of fashion
Shiplap appears in nearly every TV home-makeover show, but there are so many other emerging ways of bringing texture into a space. Tile, plaster, rattan, or living walls of plants are becoming more popular this year, instead.
#2 The all-gray look is going out of style
The trend of having all-gray kitchen cabinets and walls is fading.
Gray kitchen interiors can look cold and lack distinction, Instead of gray the bolder colors are gaining popularity. Indigo blue may be a particularly trendy kitchen color this year.
#3 All-white rooms seem to be falling out of favor too
Those looking to give their all-white interiors more pizzazz without adding bright colors can try combining different light-colored patterns and textures.
#4 The mid-century modern furniture trend may finally be over.
We're shifting away from the 1950's and 1960's 'Mad Men' look and spaces dominated by walnut wood, spindle legs, and geometric prints.
#5 Barn doors could be replaced by other types of statement entryways.
The trend for barn doors, often painted in drab brown, will be replaced by pocket doors or classic French doors.
#6 Accent walls likely won't be as trendy this year.
An accent wall is one that's painted or wallpapered differently than the others in a room.
The trend started as a way to make a space more interesting, but the age of the accent wall is drawing to a close and we will be returning to monochromatic walls that blend seamlessly with the décor without the startling drama of an accent wall..
#7 Matching furniture sets may start to look dated.
Identical furniture and matching sets don't showcase personal style, these matching sets will soon be seen as a design flaw.
Instead of trying to coordinate all your furniture or buying a complete set from a showroom, consider selecting nonmatching pieces with complementary colors or designs.
NOW LET'S SEE WHAT'S IN
#1 "granny chic" style is rising in popularity
This style is meant to evoke comfort, nostalgia, and tradition- think floral wallpaper, antique paintings, delicate china, crocheted throws, and vintage touches with whimsical flair. This trend will certainly be one to watch in 2021.
#2 Peel-and-stick wallpaper will likely be trendy this year.
Peel-and-stick wallpaper is perfect for an easy and dramatic room change. You can get creative and simply peel it off when you get tired of it.
