The rise of terrazzo
There will be a significant uptake in the use of raw materials to introduce texture and colour into our homes in 2021.
“Gleaming white Carrara marble will take a back step as we continue to see a rise in terrazzo stone finishes,” Jacinta notes.
“The focus on earthen tones will carry through to our floors and wall tiles, and marble will feature too with deep vein browns, greens and purples taking the lead.”
Expect to see a lot more timber and concrete as key 2021 design trends. “Furniture will get in on the natural kick, harking back to bistro classics with Vienna straw or cane inserts for feature pieces.”
Look good, feel good
It’s all about overstated texture and layering when it comes to textile trends in 2021, Jacinta says. “Chunky knits and weaves like boucle and macramé are the ‘must-have’ finishes we’ll all be lusting after, with unique fibres making their mark.”
Look out for fringe detailing and textiles with a ‘soft-touch’ appeal, she adds. “Velvets will continue to be prominent for an upmarket look, with added boho-style features.”
Jacinta says the tactile trend gives your space more interest and helps create a relaxing sanctuary. “It’s all about loosening up a little.”
