This year’s Spring Interior Trends 2021 is all about reflect on the year we’ve just had. We cannot deny that this past year has changed us; from the way we work, to how much we value our family life, and also how we treat our homes.
We have seen a wave of change to the way people are now feeling about their homes, as well as what they want their homes to be like for themselves.
What was once a place we spent little time in, is now a place we spend almost too much time in. To the extent we now want our home experience to suit the way we are currently living, and for the foreseeable future.
With this, I think this year’s Spring Interior Trends 2021 are focused on making the above happen for us in an approachable and accessible way. Home is now seen as a place of refuge, a sanctuary where comfort and cosiness are key. And this is exactly what we are looking for when it comes to decorating and styling our homes.
Spring Interior Trends 2021
I want to take you through my whittled down list for the Spring Interior Trends 2021 that I think are the most valuable to apply to your home. If you’re wanting/thinking about a change within your interiors this year.
I’m hoping you’ve been able to read my blog from last month, which is all bout this year’s key colour trends.
You can read my Top 5 Interior Colour Trends 2021 blog here.
This year colour is a real focal point to making sure our homes feel as cosy and comforting as possible. Not only have colour choices been selected for trend purposes, but also because of their meanings. Colour this year is mainly aimed at embracing earthy tones for you to build your own colour personalities with.
Earthy tones of colour can be neutral in shade, such as such Dulux’s ‘Brave Ground’. However, earthy shades of green and blue are also in this category, because they instinctively draw us towards nature. Whichever you’re drawn to, all earthy tones are focused on bringing the outside in. As well as embracing empowerment. And overall enabling us to have the courage to embrace change.
Introducing new colours into your home, doesn’t have to be about a complete redecoration in each room. My latest Colour Blog explores how to use this year’s colour trends in your home. Especially if you’re simply looking to change your home’s style. Make sure you have a read to get further inspiration about using colour in your home.
In keeping with this year’s Spring Interior Trends 2021 being all about comfort and cosiness. Nothing can say this more than adding curves into your design decor. Focusing on shapes that are rounded and curved instinctively sends out the message of cocooning. Wrapping us up to keep us feeling safe and protected.
Having curved edges rather than straight angular designs within furniture and accessories can be seen as welcoming and associated with kindness.
Again it’s all about personal preference and taste. Adding curves into your decor can be through the design of your sofa or bed frame, lighting or even your dining table and chairs.
However it can also be through introducing soft furnishings. Including a round rug, footstool, cushions or smaller accessories such as vases, vessels and decorative ornaments.
There’s no denying that working from home is likely to be here to stay for a while longer. Even when the majority of us can go back to our work spaces, I think working from home will still be a part of our working way of life for parts of the week.
Last year it was all about setting up a work space to suit a short-term necessity. However a year on how efficient is they space you are working in?
Do you have the right set up for you to work with a more permanent fixture in mind?
Or, do you think it’s time to re-evaluate and make the most of the space at home you are working from?
Which is why it’s great to see zoning/flexible spaces on the list for this year’s Spring Interior Trends.
Rather than using your dining room table still, can you find another space?
Perhaps a wall, or an alcove area to house your desk that separates your work and personal day to day life activities.
I’ve really missed sitting at the table to eat, as my husband has had to use this space to work.
But now he’s back teaching, I’m grateful to get this space back. Now we have it as a place where we can socialise with each other and eat.
If you are having to use a wall space or alcove area for your work desk in a room that’s also used regularly for family use, then try zoning. Separate the space through the use of different rugs, lights, plants, and artwork.
Or even painting the work area a different colour compared to the rest of the room. Remembering to use a colour that compliments the rest of the room. This will help separate your work and home life visually, as well as mentally.

One of my favourite styling tools and trends is the use of house plants, and I’m so glad it’s here to stay for this year’s Spring Interior Trends.
Adding plants to our homes has many benefits and attributes towards the overall look of our home decor, but also for our health!
Involving house plants into our interior decorating scheme automatically brings the outside in.
House plants are also know to help purify the air around us and to bring calm to an environment. And in the dreary winter months they are able to brighten up our times having to stay inside.
Plus if you have a flat, or don’t have a garden space, having house plants around is a great way to keep us in touch with nature.
One of my past blogs is all about ‘How To Style With Plants’, which you can read here to gain some great top tips for involving plants in your home this year.
There’s no denying how much sustainable living has become more and more important within our everyday lives. Therefore it is no surprise that this is a huge Spring Interior Trend for this year, and I think, years to come.
There are a few ways we can start to introduce sustainable living into your life, if you haven’t already, especially when it comes to interior design.
Firstly sourcing products from paint and furniture, to soft furnishings and interior accessories that are made from natural materials/fibers (where possible).
Putting an emphasis on protecting our currently fragile planet when it comes to manufacturing. With materials that are sustainable and eco-conscious, can only be a good thing for both the Earth’s environment as well as our homes.
Another great way to involve sustainable living in our lives, as well as being eco-conscious is to buy retro, vintage, or antique.
Whichever of these three categories you are attracted to, buying second hand/old rather than new, can do wonders for our environment. As well as enabling you to have something that’s individual and unique to suit your own home style.
Also, you can think about introducing ‘Shop Your Home’, where you move objects you already have in one room into another area. This is a great top tip if you don’t want to spend much/have the budget to buy ‘something new’.
Over the next month I’m going to be exploring Sustainable Living further. Giving my top tips on how you can be more eco-conscious in and around your home. So make sure you look out for that!
