LIVING TRENDS 2021
The year 2021 is already in the starting blocks and we are looking forward to a new year with many exciting interior highlights to come. We proudly present four living trends that you cannot miss in the new year. Ready to get started?
FRESH INTERIOR-DESIGN AIR
While last year the focus was on strong colours and striking patterns, the 2021 living trends are becoming more natural. Next year, we will be spending a lot of time at our homes and long for a place of peace, with a certain portion of natural cosiness. But there's no need to worry: lovers of unusual, colourful interiors will also get their money's worth next year.
Meet the living trends 2021!
LIVING TRENDS 2021: BLUE & BLOND WOOD
Blue was already one of last year's trend colours and will be in high demand again in 2021. What is new this season is the combination with refreshing, blond wood tones.
Blue plus blond wooden furniture and home accessories? A genuine dream team! Whereas last year blue was mainly to be found in the Art Decó trend, the trend colour can compete within natural, quieter interiors in 2021. Choose your favourite shade of blue or combine different nuances to suit your mood.
This trend is particularly appealing in the living room. Nevertheless, your youngest might also enjoy more blue colours in their rooms. However, as children's tastes often change, we do not recommend painting the walls blue. How about a blue kids' rug or home accessories in the trend colour? And when the sun comes out more often and you want to enjoy the first days outdoors, a blue outdoor rug in combination with light-coloured wooden garden furniture will also look super chic!
HOW TO STYLE THE "BLUE ON BLOND WOOD" LIVING TREND?
Your furnishings will look particularly trendy if you depict blue shades over a large area. Paint an entire wall blue or place a large rug in the trend colour. No matter whether a cloudless sky or the wide sea: blue not only has a calm and pleasant effect, but also convinces with a natural harmony that you can hardly get enough of.
In 2021, the combination with blond wooden floors and furniture is absolutely in trend. Together with accessories made of natural materials such as wicker, bast or jute the colour creates an absolute oasis of well-being with a touch of "coolness". With decorative elements and home accessories in white, fuchsia or dark green tones, you can easily create colour contrasts and loosen up the look.

LIVING TRENDS 2021: NATURALNESS & SUSTAINABILITY
2021 equally represents naturalness and sustainability. Two topics that are also becoming increasingly popular in the Home & Living sector. We will show you how to perfectly combine furniture, textiles and home accessories in this living trend and how to easily integrate sustainable materials.
Use light natural colours and materials to design your home according to this living trend. Furniture made of blond wood such as birch or maple cuts a particularly fine figure here. Our tip for even more sustainability: When buying your new interior, make sure you use recycled and environmentally friendly materials - this will not only make you feel good, but has an increased positive effect on the environment as well.
Sustainable rug alternatives in nature-related designs are also a big theme in the 2021 rug trends. Although natural fibre rugs are often a little more reserved in their colouring, they can be a real eye-catcher thanks to the variety in shape and design! If you like this trend, let yourself be enchanted by our inspirations around the Natural Living Trend.
It has never been easier to get back to nature than with the 2021 living trends!
HOW TO STYLE THE NATURAL & SUSTAINABLE LIVING TREND?
Whether as a linen sofa, a wool rug or poufs and baskets made of jute - natural materials are the shining stars of the hour! Natural materials look particularly beautiful in the colour combination with off-white, grey and cream tones. Living accessories and decorative elements in black or steel provide exciting contrasts. A certain portion of nature is also a must - in the form of dried flowers or easy-care plants.

LIVING TRENDS 2021: URBAN JUNGLE
During the corona-related lockdowns many of us have (re)discovered our green thumb. Houseplants were bought, fertilizer was spread and macramées were knotted for hanging plants. Lucky for you - because this makes you absolutely trendy in 2021! Are you ready for your own Urban Jungle?
Bringing the serenity of nature into your own home is a recurring theme in the 2021 living trends. No wonder that plants and their benefits cannot be ignored. Plants are not only the icing on the cake of interior design, because they can be easily integrated into all interiors thanks to their diversity of species, they also clean the air in your home and increase the humidity. Plants are real quality of life enhancers.
Next year, plants will be found in many variations: on rugs with beautiful prints or placed on the floor in chic baskets - but it is above all hanging plants that play a role in the 2021 living trends.
HOW TO STYLE THE HANGING PLANTS LIVING TREND?
In 2021, plants are no longer just decorative objects; they become an important, independent part of the interior. Hanging plants, placed in trendy macramées or pots, can serve, for example, as room dividers and separate different living areas from one another. They also draw attention upwards, creating the illusion of a larger room.
Our tip: If you want to try yourself as a "plant-fluencer", start with beginners hanging plants such as philodendron, string of hearts or english ivy. In this way you will give your home an update which is at the same time extremely easy to maintain.

LIVING TRENDS 2021: COLOURFUL RETRO-LOOKS
That’s the way we like it: Minimalism is a thing of the past, for all bold and colourful interior lovers this living trend is just the right thing: retro is back!
An absolute trend that cannot be ignored on social media: colourful bathrooms. Don't feel like renovating your bathroom? Even with a few selected retro accessories and colours you can create a completely new look. If you want to start slowly, how about a colourful bath mat to start with?
HOW TO STYLE THE RETRO LIVING TREND?
When it comes to this living trend, you can simply listen to your gut feeling and combine colours as you please. However, make sure to limit your colour concept to three main shades, otherwise the interior design could look too restless. Cream, off-white and grey tones form the basis - the rest is in your creative hands!
For home accessories, we focus on retro classics, such as coloured domed glass lamps, rattan decoration or colourful cushions. It's time to rummage through the past to find the perfect interior design - literally!
