Comfort and nostalgia is clearly the name of the game when it comes to interior design in 2021. Along with warm colors, the “grandmillennial” or granny chic trend
will also gain momentum. This can be described as the revival of homey elements that might be found in your grandparents’ home. Features of grandmillenial design include delicate china, crocheted throws, floral wallpaper, and antique paintings. Tables scattered with vintage books, monogrammed linens, and ornate frames on mirrors also fall into this category, creating an approachable and pleasurable environment.
As owners of Encinitas luxury houses look forward to getting back to a normal way of life in 2021, they’re turning to no-fuss styles that can be easily maintained. Industrial features such as wood and metal elements, exposed stonework, and neutral colors are expected to be big in the new year. It’s a mix of traditional and modern designs that can work for both family living and home office needs. Many of these furnishings either come from reclaimed yards or mimic the look of reclaimed materials.
Rattan and Wicker Furniture
According to interior design experts, a blast from the past will show up in the form of rattan and wicker furniture this year. These pieces, made from woven willow twigs and palm stems, add lightness and warmth to rooms such as bedrooms and dens. Consider adding a wicker headboard for guest bedrooms, a rattan side table
in the hallway, or a wicker sofa in the sunroom. Both wicker and rattan are versatile and can be used both indoors and out.
Closed Floor Plans
Open floor plans have been popular for years in Encinitas luxury houses, but the pandemic has shifted that trend. The necessity of family members spending extended periods of time together has led to more emphasis on private space and rooms designated for specific activities. Rooms that flow into each other and offer little to no separation will begin to fade away, and Del Mar’s new homes will start being built with these new needs in mind.
Walls That Make a Statement
Those who use warm tones throughout their homes may decide to throw caution to the wind and create a bolder statement on a single wall or in an entire room. The pandemic has shown us that life is short, and enjoying your own home should be a priority. Creating a statement wall with eye-popping jewel-toned paints or wallpaper with a unique print will become more popular in homes this year. While these statement walls are perfect for adding another layer of enjoyment to your home, you may want to stick with more universally popular warm tones if you plan to sell your home in the near future.
