‘New year, new you’. We’ve all heard the phrase.

But, after a tough 2020 of being cooped up indoors, maybe it’s really the year that our homes need a refresh instead.

And even if your home has an interior design scheme that you love, a new year could signal the perfect time to give your property a new lease of life.

And this doesn’t have to mean a wide-scale renovation. Even something as small as a new light fixture can make a big difference to the look of your home.

So, why not get your home ready for the year ahead by adding some of our most coveted interior items with the help of the team at PAD Lifestyle, who have shared their top interior trends to add to your home for the upcoming season.

Opulent Grandeur

‘Opulent Grandeur’ continues to be a key trend for 2021.

We’re talking luxurious lighting, bold, velvet furniture and deep, rich shades to really encapsulate this trend and appeal to style-conscious homeowners.

If you’re willing to splurge or embrace this trend in its entirety, then look no further than the statement Broste Copenhagen Wind Sofa, in the stunning ‘Grape Leaf’ shade.

Well-known for its sleek styling and Scandi-chic vibes, this sofa will certainly stand the test of time and make any living room feel opulent, particularly with this its on-trend emerald green colourway.

If instead you’d prefer to start small with this ‘over the top’ trend, then this colour-pop gold armchair from Amsterdam-based designer, Pols Potten will certainly fit the bill.

With beautiful details and a gold velvet finish, this chair will work effortlessly in the corner of any room or can even hold its own as the centrepiece of a living space.

We’ve even got a simple option that will work well to start off your journey to this opulent trend.

This pendant light from famed designer, Menu, will create a modern look in any space in the home - whether that’s the kitchen, living room or dining room, helping to make your home bang on-trend.


Inside out

Whether you’ve had the chance to explore the great outdoors in your free time this year, or missed out on your summer exploration trips, we’ve all realised the importance of incorporating nature into our lives.

And with plants playing a hugely important role in our mental wellbeing, adding greenery to our homes is certainly a guaranteed way to boost your mood.

So, if you’re looking to incorporate plants into your home, look no further than the Design House Stockholm, Greenhouse Terrarium.

Crafted by the much-loved Swedish design brand, this indoor garden works perfectly with a minimalist interior, and helps you to take care of nature in the home, whilst still staying stylish.

For something a little more subtle, a stunning new vase can too help you to embrace the ‘outside in’ trend, with the addition of a beautiful floral arrangement.

We are big fans of this Echasse Vase from designer, Menu, which adds a modern twist to a traditional vase with its use of coloured glass.

Make a statement with stylish rugs

You’d be hard pushed to find a person who doesn’t appreciate the look of hardwood flooring in the home.

And the trend for this type of flooring doesn’t show any signs of going anywhere, but one thing people do miss when they incorporate hardwood flooring into their home is the comfort of carpet.

Well, one easy way to get around this is by utilising rugs of all different fabrics, sizes and colours to add as an extension of your interior design scheme.

Set to be another big trend for 2021, statement rugs are a key accessory for the season.

If you live in a home with an open plan living space, you can really go to town with colour and pattern with your rugs, like this Aerial Tulip Rug design from brand Pols Potten.

For smaller spaces, it’s best to opt for more muted colours, as this means you don’t overpower the room, but instead add elements of texture to give the space depth.

The muted stripe pattern of this Layered Limestone Wool Rug allows for creative expression without making a bold colour or pattern statement.
