With 2020 finally in the rearview window, it’s the perfect time to celebrate the new year by embracing some of the hottest new interior design trends of 2021. Online interior design experts have used home design trends for inspiration, and have turned them into Zoom backgrounds perfect for any virtual get-together, whether it’s a work conference call or a girlfriend's wine night. 

The biggest emerging style trends of 2021, which are embodied in Zoom backgrounds, include the following:

  • 1980s Style Revival-- Sculptural furniture, bold colours, and plenty of drama. The 80s are back—but only the good parts.
  • Natural Materials--Brings effortless texture into your space and gives your home a perfectly layered look.
  • Bold Wall Colors--White walls, be gone! Bold wall colours are the perfect way to bring joy, excitement, and personality to your home.
  • Lighter-Toned Wood--Hello, Scandinavian and Rustic inspiration! We’re seeing lighter-toned and whitewashed woods take centre stage.
  • Grand-millennial Style--More people are embracing the “granny-chic” style—filled with antiques, wallpaper, and ruffles galore.
  • Rise of Traditional Comfort--Slipcovered sofas. Traditional patterns. Functionality. It’s time to get comfortable without sacrificing on style.
