Interior design trends for your home in 2021

With so much time spent at home at the moment, interior design is getting a lot of attention this year. So, we’ve had a look to see what’s trending so far in 2021 so that you can make your home super stylish and a great place to be during lockdown.

Cottage comfort

The trend for cottage comfort (AKA “Cottagecore”) is all about creating a home that feels rustic and snug, safe but stylish, relaxing and classic. Think – the famous cottage in the 2006 Christmas film The Holiday with Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet and Jude Law (the cottage was in Surrey by the way). A place that is aesthetically pleasing and cosy, ideally suited to long nights by the fire and wholesome pursuits like crafting or baking.

Cottage comfort involves a country living look with gingham throws, velvet cushions, beautiful pottery and dried flowers. Somewhere you can escape from the world and get back to life’s simple pleasures.

Luxury

With holidays cancelled, stress levels up and socialising not allowed, a key trend for 2021 is going to be all about finding a little luxury wherever you can. That may be in the shape of rich and luxurious vintage and heritage prints and wallpapers, a Victorian style look (armchairs, rich fabrics, powerful furniture) or huge and luxurious fluffy towels in the bathroom. They key to this look is making it personal with signature items and making it feel a little decadent: perhaps a huge, opulent rug or an indulgent lavish new desk or piece of art.

Roof windows

In turbulent times, home needs to be a place of calm and balance and it would appear one way we are achieving this in 2021 is by flooding our homes with natural light and lots of fresh air. Combined with botanicals, flora and fauna and inspiration from nature: leaf prints, houseplants and natural wood, we’re bringing the outside in to create a place that feels grounded and earthy, at the same time as feeling healthy and light.

Style meets reality

Above all else this year, the trend and necessity is set to be about making your home perform multiple functions while remaining aesthetically pleasing. That’s the challenge: style needs to be functional, creating a home that supports your wellbeing but can be adapted in a nutshell to go from cool kitchen to homework hub. Carve out a corner of a room to create a stylish but simple urban style study area and dedicate the other half of the room to “Japandi” (where Scandinavian calm meets Japanese chic) – think neutral colours and natural materials – wood, bamboo, stone. You’ll need to be creative with your space and create clearly defined areas to get the most out of your home.

Create a new look for your home

At 2Hot2Cold, we can’t help you with fluffy towels, velvet cushions or dried flowers but we can help you transform a tired and under used conservatory into a stylish and usable space.  And we may also be able to help with roof windows in your new conservatory roof. Replacing your conservatory ceiling and roof will give your conservatory a whole new look as well as controlling the temperature (so it’s never too hot or too cold) and saving you money on bills. Then all you have to do is add your own finishing touches and sense of style to create a space that you love and use every day.

COVID safety compliant

We are still open for business as permitted during the current lockdown. We have worked hard to ensure we can quote and install your conservatory roof in a socially distanced and safe way. We can provide remote quotes and consultations and our installers can install a replacement roof without the need to have any contact with you. Our installers have been trained in safe practices in respect of COVID 19 and will leave your conservatory clean and tidy.

Why not call us now to find out more or to get a no obligation quote.

How big is your footprint?

How big is your footprint?

What most people don’t realise is that the biggest source of the carbon footprint you leave, is your home and household emissions. According to Nesta, “domestic energy use accounts for more than 21 % of UK greenhouse gas emissions each year.” The Office for National Statistics claim that households have been the single biggest emitter of greenhouse gases in the UK since 2015 and account for almost 28% of the UK’s total emissions.

Is the rain getting you down?

Yup, it’s getting a bit boring now. After all, with summer travel still difficult and all the challenges of the last 18 months, we do all really need some warm sunny weather and some long balmy days spent in the garden.

Check your seals

As the sun finally comes out after weeks of rain, there’s been a collective sigh of relief across the UK. Summer is here at last and if we can’t go on holiday, we can at least enjoy some long sunny days. But that said, if you’re a traditional conservatory owner, things might look a little different.

Stay or sell?

There is no doubt that Covid 19 has changed many lives for good. In the space of 12 months working from home has become the norm with Zoom and online conferencing becoming second nature, and many large employers taking the decision to permanently downsize office space. Although the country is gradually re-opening, it is unlikely that working practices and lives will ever completely return to how things were before March 2020.
