2021 Decorating Trends

2021 Decorating trends

Posh Diggs predicts that 2021 is going to be all about livable luxury and versatility in design.  So many people have had to rethink their living spaces.  Furniture has had to play double duty to accommodate office, classroom, and living.  2021 will be all about durable fabrics, comfortable upholstery, and furniture pieces that are versatile and chic…Fabrics that are durable, wear well, and can be washed will be more important as we spend more time at home for work and learning.

Durability is a critical element in 2021 designs. 


Linen is and will remain incredibly popular in home decor.  It is one of the most robust and most durable fabrics.  It is about three times stronger than cotton.  Other benefits of linen:

  • Resistance to lint and abrasion
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Natural shine and colors range from beige to ecru or gray
  • It is mold resistant




When reupholstering sofas, chairs, bench cushions you must consider Crypton fabrics.   They have the feel of velvet and performance of vinyl…The main advantages of this fabric:

  • Stain resistant
  • Wear resistant and waterproof
  • Does not contain harmful substances
  • No special cleaning required





Crypton like Velvets will be a major theme and Velvet will be a widely used interior decoration material in 2021. Velvet upholstered armchairs and velvet ottomans or cushions are excellent options to make your home more elegant and trendier.



Another high-quality fabric which is actively used for upholstery of sofas, and is one of designers favorites is faux suede.  Unlike woven fabric, faux suede achieves it uncanny resemblance to natural through a finishing process that reproduces the texture and feel of real suede.


After several years being used in interior decoration, minimalism is finally abandoned in 2021. This year, you can bet on maximalism, you have a much wider range of possibilities, and can combine various styles. With this new trend you will be able to use more interesting decorative objects that are neither standardized nor simplified.

Mixing textures and elements is the main idea creating your space.  Textures, layers, patterns are our prediction.   Plaids and Printed Fabrics evoke comfort and happier times do not be surprised if you start seeing more in 2021 designs.  Layers of pillows, patterns on ottoman, Surya Rugs – All available in our Posh Diggs studio.



Combining the kitchen with the living room may seem like a thing of the past, but in 2021 this trend is back. Creating a kind of corner for faster meals in the kitchen is a practical and fashion idea. This informal space will be especially useful and cozy for more solitary or more private meals.  Posh Diggs loves creating unique and cozy corners in Kitchens, Mud Rooms, Window Seats and more.. Cushions and Pillows are a perfect way to updates spaces.









Make a big statement with your walls…. The time is right to wallpaper your dining room, powder room, and accent walls.  Do not shy away from lavish colors – funky jewel tones are a must.  The demand for floral patterned wallpaper and murals will increase this year.  Let your interior tell a store and convey your uniqueness.  Posh Diggs believes Thibault wallpaper is the about best in style and design. 







And let us not forget about outdoor living.  A great way to expand your space is creating a outside living space in time for Spring and Summer 2021.  There is nothing like being stuck at home for 10 months (and counting!) to prompt us to seek new ways to enjoy outdoor living. 

Our backyards, patios, and gardens have dutifully served greater purposes than ever before as office spaces, happy hour haunts, gyms, and refuges to enjoy (and be inspired by) the beauty of nature. We’re expecting the popularity of outdoor living spaces to continue to grow in 2021, not only in light of COVID-19, but also as many of us pursue more sustainable lifestyles and seek to achieve greater health, both mentally and physically, from home.  Plus, our outdoor spaces are sure to remain hot spots for our social gatherings for quite some time—even during the winter.  It is super affordable to update you look by redoing your existing outdoor cushions then add some pizzazz will colorfully pillows.

Beauty in Décor can be functional – Posh Diggs predicts a much healthier New Year.  If you are in Charlotte, living or visiting, stop by our new Studio to experience the flavors of 2021..
