2021 Interior Design Trends at Newport

Mar 17, 2021

Chances are, we’ve all spent a bit more time than usual at home this past year. Which makes it more important than ever to make sure our living spaces feel extra warm, inviting, and unique! This year, we’ve spotted some great new interior design ideas geared towards adding that extra bit of character to any home. Read ahead for Newport’s take on the top interior design trends of 2021!     

Bold Colors & Prints

According to Insider, the minimalist look of the all-white room may be falling out of favor for 2021. Instead, this year we’re ushering in bold colors and mixed prints for a fun, upbeat style sure to uplift the mood of any space. Not ready for a total overhaul of a neutral design scheme? Try mixing in a few light-colored patterns for renewed visual interest without changing the entire room concept.


The Age of Eco Chic

As our commitment to sustainability grows, design is becoming more and more environmentally friendly. Eco Chic takes the best of sustainable practices and translates them into a warm and inviting interior design style. With an emphasis on craft and multi-use furniture, this trend favors an earth-toned palette, incorporating colors like golden beige, moss green, soft olive, and burnt orange. Be prepared to see a lot of textured and resilient fabrics like matte velvet, linen, and boucle cropping up as well.


Quirky Grand Millenial

We gave a heads up about the popular grand millennial trend awhile back, and as it turns out, it looks like the look might be here to stay! This style leans towards vintage touches with a whimsical flare--think crocheted throws, funky antique china, and quirky wallpaper. The look incorporates treasured knick-knacks into the modern home for a unique and eclectic atmosphere.


Updated Industrial 

Looking for something a little sleeker and more minimalist? No worries… the industrial look is big for 2021 as well. As we spend more time working from home, the update of the no-frills style may be a response to the many functions our living spaces have been asked to play throughout the last year. To add industrial elements to your space, find design pieces that blend the contemporary with the traditional, like wood with metal, and ultra-sleek lighting fixtures so eye-catching they function as stand-alone art pieces.


Add in Yellows and Grays

More than anything, after the year we’ve all had, 2021 is about making our homes a cozy place we want to spend time in. Bring peace, calm, and comfort into the home with a fresh spring color palette inspired by the Pantone colors of the year. Pantone chose both gray and yellow this year to emphasize how two independent colors can come together to support each other--an excellent and uplifting message for us all! Not sure how to bring the color duo into your home? Throw pillows can be a good place to start when experimenting with new shades.
