Natural, Earthy, and Plant-Filled Homes
The events of 2020 left most people spending greatly increased amounts of time at home. This left people looking for ways to keep occupied without breaking the bank or cluttering their home with unnecessary items. Many people turned to houseplants as a way to endure time at home and add some fun life into their rooms.
The addition of many houseplants into homes led people to wanting more earthy, natural tones throughout their living spaces. Below are a few trends you can expect in 2021.
- Houseplants, herb gardens, and succulents
- Warm paint tones (beige, red, orange, brown)
- Natural materials (rattan, cotton, wicker, bamboo, wood)
Another huge trend that’s gaining popularity as we enter 2021 is living small. Embracing smaller spaces allow people to focus time, money, and energy on interests and relationships rather than on their home spaces and maintaining tons of unused space. The desire for a minimalistic lifestyle suddenly gives a whole new meaning to furniture with multiple uses.
For example, futons are going to have a huge increase in popularity this coming year. Futons aren’t just for college kids anymore, they’re the perfect, stylish addition to any home. A perfect bed when you need it and sofa when you don’t. Try investing in a few high quality futon mattress covers to lean into the style-meets-function aspects of a futon.
Vintage, Recycled, and Upcycled Styles

Hand-me-downs are welcome in 2021 as people look to be more fiscally and environmentally responsible by buying used items and breathing new life into them with fun and easy DIY projects.
