Our homes are our refuge, this year more than ever. A real escape from the pandemic and the doom and gloom news stories surrounding us. A haven of peace where we can spend quality time alone or with the family, enjoying simple pleasures such as listening to music, cooking or a working our way through a new boxset.
The time we’ve spent at home has allowed us to appreciate its qualities and highlight its flaws. With many of us now working from home too, it is driving us to make our spaces more practical and comfortable. Homes have become more than a place to simply rest our hats, and although no home décor shows have been able to take place this year, major trends are still emerging.
Cocooning is a must
Far from being a fad trend, the art of cocooning has become an essential home décor theme for 2021. Choosing soft colours, cosy fabrics such as wool and velvet, and smooth round, organic shapes will create a bubble of warmth and happiness. Angular furniture is being replaced by a combination of circular shapes and straight lines to mimic a boat at full sail. Soft furniture with rounded lines and accessories with strong curves will contribute to our comfort and well-being.
Stay connected with nature
Natural home decor helps bring the outside, inside. Not only does it bring us closer to nature, but it is also kinder to the planet. The craze for wood, rattan and all-natural materials within our furniture and home accessories continues to accelerate. Surround yourself with beautiful baskets made from wicker, water hyacinth or sea rush to effortlessly keep rooms tidy and organised. Bamboo is also a fantastic choice to fill your home with functional and warm furniture. Going back to basics with baskets or ceramics takes us back to our artisan routes so we don’t get lost in the modern world of technology.
Discover the Japandi style
A hybrid trend inspired by Japanese and Scandinavian lifestyles, Japandi has appeared in the world of the home decor. Minimalism and serenity are the buzz words for this decorative style that attaches great importance to purity and simplicity. Why not take advantage of this trend to reinvent your interiors and update your furniture and décor? We can also draw inspiration from Japandi to change the way we live and work. Learning to function with only the essentials will help us consume less, reduce clutter and re-use items by giving them away. By reorganising your interior, you will optimise your living space and create the right Japandi energies for pure and simple décor.
We offer a whole palette of earth colours
Clay, terracotta, red ochre… Gently introduce earth colours and warm hues that surround us into the home. From timeless beige to rusty oranges and contrasting shades of brown, your home will be welcoming and a source of comfort. Combine with the ethnic and bohemian accents of summer and natural colours that blend seamlessly with wood, bamboo and wicker.
