Stylish modern bedroom



With the new year knock-knock-knocking at our collective doors, now is definitely the time to start planning your decor makeover. Fortunately we’ve got the inside scoop on what’s going to be cool in 2021. Check out this quick guide to the six decor trends you should definitely consider.

Black & White

Simple yet sophisticated, black and white is a timeless classic. For 2021, think Spanish subway tile, white bedspreads with black end pieces, and heavy black frames on your black-and-white photos.

Navy Blue

This rich blue was popular in 2020, and its popularity will keep it in the limelight for the next year, too. You can’t sink this fan favorite!

Light Wood

Straight outta Scandinavia, this design trend calls for furnishings, decor, and accents that use raw, lightly stained wood tones. To be honest, it makes things look a bit unfinished, but that’s the price of being hip!


Despite what some of the haters have been saying, gray is still good! Think gray rugs, throw pillows, furniture, and paint. Just mix up the tones and you’re good to go.

Non-White Kitchens

Even though plain gray and navy blue are sticking around, the all-white kitchen is decidedly out. Fortunately, there are easy ways to add pops of color, including dishtowels, throw rugs, and even a temporary backsplash.

Less Clutter

In 2020, everyone was making wall galleries and collecting vintage knick knacks to fill up every empty space. This year, less is more with minimalism taking center stage. Think shelves and end tables adorned with just one or two items. Personality is also in, so make sure those select items represent yours.
