Trends we will see leaving in 2021

We are entering 2021, and it’s supposed that some trends that stayed with us in the last years, will leave us, in this natural come-and-go flow in fashion, where some things in the rise now were off before, and viceversa.
Some influential sources have something to say about it, will they hit this time? lets see

What’s Out, according to experts

Metal Furniture

Wood looks unbeatable right now, and metal is considered now as uncomfortable. Metal is cold, metal frames in beds, sofas, chairs, maybe should give space to more warm, luxury alternatives.

Mirrored Furniture

Lucite is a better alternative. Mirrored furniture had a short revival by grandmilenials, but it fell in disgrace quickly. Maybe is related to the very inconveniences of excessive mirrors, it doesn’t matter the particular style and time we are. 

Concrete

An overused material that must rest a little to give some space to variety.


Neutral color walls


Maybe is fatigue for so many years of Scandinavian imperialism, but it looks like the neutral color trend has gone too far for so long. Bold monochromatic choices are welcomed, so pale grey, pale beige, pale sand  must take a break for now. 

Subway Tile


Another overexposed material. Subway tile, supposedly used for the first time in the NYC sub, became highly popular in the 1990s, and it still is. Indeed it became a classic for cafes, bistros, bakeries, and so on. The new trends are all about color and life, so there is not space for that boring (now) white walls.

Does décor add value to your home

To create an extra garage is something that may increase the final price of your value, since it creates a parking  place additional where it wasn’t any. But what about décor? Does it has sense?

The value of merchandising

Decorating a house doesn’t add “value” to a house, meaning an increase in the price of the property. That price depends on other elements, like location, traffic and general status of the property.

How does a trendy living room look like?

Right now, some trends are consolidating while others are getting out of the market. But is very probable that if we enter in a recently opened house, we will see some hot trends, popular everywhere.

That’s why is good to ask ourselves, what we will see in a trendy apartment, right now? Let try to figure an answer.

First of all, its convenient to clarify that  “trendy” means  what is considered popular and expected to be seen frequently in the near future. So, what are we going to find in a trending flat?

As a base of a palette of color, neutral colors are still on range. Though year after year several designers announce the end of the use of the eternal clear grey, beige or white, reality is that these sempiternal hues continue to be a favorite for many people, especially due to the high levels of popularity that still  have décor styles like Mid Century Modern, Scandinavian or Coastal Living.

So, you will probably find neutral colors in the walls. Clear grey (Pantone) or Urbane Bronze (Sherwin Williams) are the referral hues this year, when it comes to walls. But is expected too a major use another hues. So if you want to go full trendy, take a step forward and forget about neutrals.

But color is taking over of furniture too. What we consider trendy in furniture, must have rounded shapes and colorful hues. Two-seats solutions (Loveseats), are gaining ground over three seats traditional sofas or couches. Trendy rugs have geometric patterns, and are Moroccan (Beni Ouarian): Thick, high pile.

To create an accent, you can go with classic design pieces: Mid Century Modern, or Scandinavian pieces, like a Hans Wegner Shell Chair, or a Barcelona Chair. They bring prestige, beauty and the timeless element, in a dynamic contrast between the new and old styles.

But beyond furniture and colors, what else are we supposed to find? The answer is out there: Nature. Think about plants. Especially green plants, and in medium size. Whether in a corner, hanging or graciously placed on shelves, your place and your health will benefit of feeling the presence of Aloe Vera, Snake Plant, and so many others.

But the presence of Nature has to do with some other features, like light wood pieces. Wicker, Rattan, Cane, all will make it big in our living rooms, whether as center tables, side tables, pots, and of course as furniture. In a more harmoniously set up, brown and green are gaining a ground on their own.

If you want to stay   on the top of the trends, you can be part of the marvel and feel inspired by Mid Century Modern furniture, with master pieces like the Barcelona Chair and the Hans Wegner Shell Chair, with Barcelona Design.

Staging your Home with the Style of your Shell Chair

Your home is “coming out” . The moment of renting or sell it has arrived. If you want to do this successfully There are some tips that we can share, with some essential tips you must keep in mind, if you really want .

Smells

A strong, unexpected, unpleasant smell easily can generate a quick rejection from potential customers. Nasty smells are associated with poor hygiene  and diseases, logically. But besides strong smells, there are a series of “daily basis smells” that can be very unpleasant for new visitors, but completely unnoted for the usual owner. Do you have pets? Kids? Any alligator at home? They can be a source of funny smells that you barely notice. What experts advice: Take a friend of yours to your place and ask for a honest opinion.

Proportion

Proportion, always proportion. The golden rule for interior designers applies equally with renters, owners. A place with disproportioned furniture will always led to talk (not the good talk we want to hear). Small rugs, gigantic rugs on steroids,  too much white and neutral colors, or too strong tones, that all could lead to a unpleasant experience. A balanced décor is key to visitors so they can see the strengths of your place without interferences.

Light

A good lighting is a wonderful tool to create a good impression. Natural light has no substitute, and all the means available to supply it must be used. Get rid of curtains, blinds. Especially when it comes to rent or sell, customers want to see their property as clear is possible. And don’t skimp on artificial light, especially for the main rooms: Diner room, kitchen, living room.

Design Furniture

Maybe if you have a property for your own use, you will have a different expectation, but when it comes to renting or buying, a potential customer enjoys terribly to see its spaces to the best they can look. That is a great hook. Experienced renters know it since long time ago, and that’s why the tend to rely on replicas to bring the best impression. A good quality replica allows to show a great, elegant view of the room, for a fraction of the price. An excellent design piece, like the Barcelona Design rendition of the Hans Wegner Shell Chair, will make quite a statement.
