In the coming months of interior design, expect to see bold patterns, high contrast and indigo - lots of indigo! Before you go all-out on decorating, though, take a note from Shelby Greene, Living Spaces Visual Merchandiser, who advises that when incorporating these top 10 home decor trends for spring 2021, it’s important to remember that “less is more and more impactful.” Whatever your favorites from the trends below - from the African influence of tribal designs to the splashes of Shibori dyes - it’s better to lean towards minimalism for the aesthetic to really pop.
Check out the full trend report below for the latest in home decor - and let your favorites inspire your spring refresh!
Rich and serene, indigo has always been favorited by interior designers – and this spring, it’s getting some extra love. Play to indigo’s moody nature with inky washes (see #6), or give it a more casual spin with a breezy neutral color scheme.

5. Coastal Textures
2020 saw a rise in natural wood, distressed surfaces and other marks of the coastal style – and the trend is carried through to spring ’21, stronger than ever. Think neutral hues, white washed finishes and organic textures.
Taking a cue from the eclectic and global trends, shibori – along with other ‘inky’ washes and patterns – is dominating decor. Expect to see more and more of blended, washed-out dyes, especially in indigo and black, in throw pillows, blankets and other upholstered accents.
7. Mixed Metallics
Embracing the tried-and-true design concept of color movement and rhythm, gradation will pack a powerful punch this spring – in small doses. Whereas the traditional line of thinking is to view gradation as a tool to assess how the colors in a room as a whole work together, gradation in spring ’21 will pop up more and more within furniture and accent pieces themselves; look for throw pillows, lamps and rugs with a gradated blend of color to add a soft touch to spring decor.
Finally, color pairings high in contrast will continue to take over designs this spring. Some of the strongest combos expected to make appearances? Deep black + fresh white, moody indigo + neutral grey and sparkling metallics + natural wood.
