Making spaces better inch by inch.

In terms of the elements or materials

Paint - Yellow And Grey | Grey And Yellow

This year, Pantone also going with the flow of the unusual year, took the unusual step of naming two colors as their shades of the year: Illuminating, a zingy yellow, and Ultimate Yellow, a pale grey.

'The selection of two independent colors highlight how different elements come together to express a message of strength and hopefulness that is both enduring and uplifting, conveying the idea that it’s not about one color or one person, it’s about more than one,' says Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute.

Yellow- The colour also represents 'joy' that every home craves this year, with a balance of course from our all-time favourite neutral- 'grey'

A buzzing design trend present in the online world called the Face line graphic art  is been used by the millennial generation lately and now face line art is revived in interiors through decoration and home accessories and is going to be the first choice for all the creative bees this year.

It is  an expressive trend where lines do all the talking and makes the interiors go artsy. These are basically art pieces created by faces and bodies using fluid lines. You can incorporate these via paintings and artworks. Go wild with the amazing range of faceline art wallpapers, sculptures and murals, upholstery, cushions bed covers, ceramics, statement furniture pieces

What we like about this style is that it can be incorporated in a very minimalistic style where the trend is enough to make big noise as well as you can go extra bold with the colour or infusing some statement pieces of furniture.

Some other Modern art trends that can be incorporated in the same ways as mentioned above would be the ever fabulous Animal print for the new love of tropical theme and the innovational cool Holographic iridescent effect which emits that dreamy rainbow like modern effect.

India's age long handmade decor in vast varieties in terms of local manufacturers and markets will not be restricted to limited customers. More and more designers will and must incline towards our small local manufacturers and markets to introduce our vast culture in artistic ways into the modern interior design concepts.

We strongly support and recommend this one.

Material - Bringing The Outside Inside Concept

I believe that because the entire world has spent so many months at home (and indoors for much of it), we are going to see a big trend towards a more organic or natural vibe. In simple terms, Meeting nature wherever we are with materials or patterns that reflect bringing the exterior inside...ranging from bold, green, palm frond wallpaper patterns to beautiful wicker elements, light woods, exposed wood-framed furnishings, rustic stone fireplaces; anything that would strengthen the human-nature connection. Natural, neutral colors providing the background palette of a room, punctuated with the boldness of nature's vibrant colors to bring life to the spaces.

Natural and organic materials strongly decorated to remind us of the exterior life, creating mixed interiors with nature.

Material - Low-Waste / Sustainable

While we’re not super surprised about this prediction, we are really proud.

Not only are consumers more focused on reducing their environmental impact in 2021 regarding food and waste, but Modsy has seen the demand for sustainable furnishings greatly increase. We might finally be moving away from the fast-fashion home furnishings industry and into an age of more thoughtful consumption—one focused on second-hand finds, investment pieces, and manufacturers with transparent and sustainable practices.

Interior design trends 2021 will determine a new age in developing sustainable design whether in furniture or furnishings. Designers are dared to create pieces with new and unusual materials.

Furniture - Mid-Century Won’t Slow Down

Don’t sell that tapered-leg dining table just yet!

Even though Modsy anticipated the Mid-Century craze to peter out in 2020, it shows no sign of stopping. They’re happy to admit that the small-space perfect, functional, and approachable lines of Mid-Century furniture, decor, and art will keep on coming through.

Furniture - Plenty of Cane

The trend for rattan and cane furniture is still going strong into 2021 – sideboards, chairs, and beds and are all really easy ways to bring this stylish material into your home. Wardrobes and console storage shutters are the new places to spot this trend.  We have also seen (and tested out for ourselves) loads of upcycling projects using rattan webbing if you are after a cheap way to add some of this trendy texture into your home.

Even More Plants

Thought you’d seen the year of plants? Think again.

We’re willing to bet that 2021 brings Even. More. Plants into our homes. Not only do plants bring beauty, vibrancy, colour, just life to any room, but they’re something to nurture and care for—something to focus on instead of the instability of the outside world. They also freshen the air, filtering out pollutants and releasing oxygen. What else do you want from them? So brace yourselves, because the plant walls and corners and windows are here to stay.

You only need to peep at Pinterest and Instagram to see that houseplants have never been more fashionable. From retro 1970s-style hanging creepers to blowsy, beautiful blooms there’s sure to be a plant to suit your style and space.


2020 saw its fair share of home trends, thanks to a surplus of time spent pondering our interiors—quite literally stuck staring at the design choices we might not have thoughtfully through. The good news is that it compelled people to take creativity to new levels and really think critically about what they want to get out of their homes.

Home decor trends for 2021 Will be all about creating a home that's comfortable, functional, and most importantly, a reflection of you. We'll cheers to that!
