Instagram can be a magical place. It shines a light on different aesthetics, can be humorous, and it’s great to look at food recipes. This social media vortex can also be a great place to get some inspiration on home decor trends.
In fact, it has plenty of profiles that are tailored specifically to your vision. However, with time against us at all times, it might not be feasible to go through all the trends that are constantly popping up within the interwebs.
That is why we went ahead and hand-picked some of the best home decor trends on Instagram at the moment. For those of you who were ready to invest in an interior designer, you’re about to become your own decorator.
Navigating through the colors that might be right for our home can be incredibly frustrating. Thankfully, Pantone has made that process easy for us for plenty of years. This year, they have released two independent colors as the color of the year, PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray and PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating. Use these two colors as a base for your home decor needs. Many Instagram interior designers are definitely on board with this idea.
Texture for small spots
Adding texture or 3D walls are allows small places to flourish this year.
Colorful floral designs are in (did they ever leave our home)?
The Latinx community is used to seeing color and florals all throughout their homes. At least, I know I was used to it. But in a wonderful turn of events, our design style is finally being highlighted. Here is how you can bring the style we’ve learned to know all our lives and give it a more va-va-voom.
Cozy is the new staple
Long gone are the days where we decorated for the sake of aesthetics. Instead, many people, especially this year, are opting for furniture and home amenities that create a more warm and cozy feel.
Eye-popping art work
Neutral colors are still very much trending in 2021. However, many are complementing their neutrality with artwork as the perfect accent. Just make sure your art is vibrant.
Being that this past year our lives got flipped upside down due to you-know-what, our homes became our everything. It became our entertainment center, our offices, our libraries, and much more. Since then, many of us have realized the importance of flexible spaces in our homes. So, make sure you have a few places at home that can adapt to your many needs.
Plants… and more plants!
Plants are all the hype this year. Perhaps, it’s because they are particularly easy to care for and won’t talk back to you. There is no limit to the number of plants you can add to your home. Just make sure you are choosing pet-friendly plants if you have a pet.
Minimalist uncluttered spaces
2021 is a year where space and clarity are essential. So, declutter your home and only leave things that you will actually use. No more holding on to the trinkets you had on display for years — their purpose was served, and it’s time for a change. Besides, living on the minimalist side allows your mind to be more clear and adds to productivity.
Accent rugs everywhere
Accent rugs elevate any space they are placed. If you feel like your living room or any room in your house needs a quick “pop,” then just lay a rug on it. Try going for faux fur rugs or textured rugs.
If you are wondering how you can glam up a wall, then go get a decorative mirror. But not just any mirror. The mirror you choose needs to make a statement. Try placing one by the entrance of your house or in the living room. Bonus tip: the larger the mirror, the more depth you’ll add to your home space.
