5 Home Design Trends for 2021

8 Jan. 2021

In 2021, we’ll be spending more and more time at home. Hopefully not as much as we did in 2020, but we’re guessing that a big chunk of our days will still be spent inside, in our living rooms. To create the perfect space to maximize your time spent working and relaxing, we found 5 home design trends for 2021. Who said you couldn’t switch up your home decor once in a while? 


multi functional

Multi-functional is the new normal. Now that our homes are becoming offices, gyms, and pop-up bars simultaneously, smart storage and multi-functional furniture are what we dream of. Trust us here: versatility is the way to go. 

Gallery Walls

This trend is one that first gained popularity in 2020. Gallery walls are here to stay in 2021, not only for their pleasing visual aspect but also for the chic they bring to any room. Many configurations are available, from baskets to mixed media, so there’s truly something for everyone. Pssst: a gallery wall above your Cozey sofa will make it look even cozier… 

Cozy with Cozey 

Say goodbye to your midcentury-style couch and hello to the Cozey sofa. In 2021, living rooms will hold fewer furniture pieces but more cozy and comfortable ones—key phrase:  quality over quantity. 

Earthy, Grounded Tones

Warm, comforting hues are making their entrance in our homes this year. For 2021, Pantone has chosen not one but two colours of the year. Illuminating, a lovely yellow, and Ultimate Grey, a classic neutral. Not only this, but shades of green are also on the rise, welcoming all the earthiness feels. 

Outside, But Inside 

The sky, earth, water, and other outdoor elements have the power to make us feel calm and relaxed. So why not make these outside elements a part of your indoors? Letting in the natural light and bringing in natural textures, like jute, are examples of ways to achieve this goal. 


We hope you took note of these 5 home design trends for 2021! Every Friday, we release a Top 5 of things we hope will make your life simpler and better.  After all, that’s what Cozey stands for; simplicity and comfort.  See you next Friday!
