    What's REALLY in and out in the Design World for 2021

    What's REALLY in and out in the Design World for 2021

    Jem Funk, Interior & Lighting Designer with Premier Lighting, is back talking with Nancy about what interior design ideas are in and out for 2021.  Jem and Nancy share their honest opinions with you on trends and fads. Enjoy their light-hearted chat and take notes.  You won't want to miss this one.

    OUT FOR 2021

    Shiplap is one of the fastest fading trends


    Once used to waterproof boats, shiplap siding became a trendy way to decorate interior walls in the 2010s.
    "Shiplap appears in nearly every TV home-makeover show
    texture walls with tile, plaster, rattan or wood

    Gray kitchen interiors may become less popular


    The all-gray look is going out of style.
    Gray kitchen interiors can look cold and lack distinction
    Bolder colors gaining popularity.
    Indigo blue  & green may be a particularly trendy kitchen color in 2021.

    The Mid-century modern furniture trend may finally be over


    Mid-century modern designs were popular in the 1950s and 1960s,
    May finally be fading away.
    We're shifting away from the 'Mad Men' look

    Matching furniture sets may start to look dated


    Identical furniture and matching sets don't showcase personal style.
    Select nonmatching pieces with complementary colors or designs.
    Having everything match doesn't allow people to let their personal style shine through.

    What’s in for 2021

    Granny Chic becoming more popular


    Floral wallpapers are considered granny chic.
    The "grandmillennial" trend is a modern revival of homey design elements that you might find in your grandparents' home.
    The style is meant to evoke comfort, nostalgia, and tradition.
    Think floral wallpaper, antique paintings, delicate china, crocheted throws, and vintage touches with whimsical flair.

    Peel-and-stick wallpaper will be trendy in 2021


    Wallpaper is having a bit of a resurgence right now.
    Self-adhesive, removable wallpaper is gaining popularity with people who rent or are looking for a low-commitment way to upgrade their living space.

    Wicker and rattan furniture will likely be trending


    Natural-looking furniture is coming back in style.
    woven furniture styles will be popular.
    Rattan and wicker details.



    BOTTOM LINE


    the most important trend of 2021 in design calls for just to ignore these very trends,
    to personalize the space and adjust the interior primarily for yourself.

    We’ve said this before – it’s your home, your space, your lifestyle and your budget.  Chose wisely!
