    Home Trends for 2021

    It’s our annual episode on decor trends we expect to see in the coming year. Things are a little different this year--2020 has made a big impact on interior design. For 2021, we’re seeing trends based on 1) nostalgia/looking for comfort and 2) function! It’s so interesting which trends from the past are coming back this year, and how much working from home has affected the market for home products and how we use our homes.

Motivating and relatable

I missed listening to this podcast on my commute so much that now I listen while cleaning my house. Their appeal is in not being experts, but rather regular people who are trying to make their homes beautiful and comfortable. It feels like a conversation with friends who also bought fixer-upper houses and are doing the work over time: comparing notes and experiences and encouraging you that you can make your home what you want it to be.

Not for everyone

Ladies are personable but not relatable to me and probably many others. They don’t seem to do a lot of affordable DIY projects and certainly don’t have to save to do any. One’s challenge of not buying much in 2020...she spent over $700 for the first couple items. More for the more affluent listener. Too bad.
