2021’s biggest interior trends to reinvent your home

Spending more time than usual at home over the past year has had a huge effect on our lives and how we view our spaces, making many of us re-consider what style, colour schemes and pieces of homeware we do (and perhaps don’t!), want to live with.

We’ve rounded up the top three that are here to stay, and we think you can get on board with them too.

Making a statement

Go big or go home! Introducing a pop of colour is a wonderful way to elevate your colour scheme and show off your very own personality to your visitors.

Grey is still a popular choice for interior colours but shaking it up with a vibrant piece of furniture can liven up the room. A great way to do this is by adding an accent chair or other statement piece of upholstery. Even better, it has a very good purpose too, so it’s not all just for show.

Going for a sunny pink or orange will really give your room that summer vibe.

If you’d like to upcycle existing furniture to bring a new colour or pattern to your home, local Wendy Mortimer Upholstery does just that – meaning you end up with a unique piece of furniture too.

Aberdeen-based Annie Mo’s has a wide range of bold furniture from sofas to dining tables to home accessories – perfect if you want to make a statement in your home.


‘Cottagecore’ or ‘granny chic’, whatever you want to call it, the new trend has us all excited. Bringing an exciting mix of classic farmhouse with eclectic elements, cottagecore is similar to the Grandmillenial style but with a more relaxed look.

At Grandhome, you can get the best of both worlds with a new build home with a traditional spin. Aboyne-based housebuilder AJC has a focus on locally-crafted, traditional features within their homes. The housebuilder’s 3-bedroom Glenfinnan home features timber linings in the lounge, made by AJC’s own joinery workshop in Aboyne, and is complemented by other unique pieces like lamps, handmade with sea kelp in the West Coast of Scotland.

CALA Homes also have a mix of traditional and contemporary features within the homes, including traditional French doors and feature front doors in black, grey or navy.

The trend uses bold patterns and colour patterns which can feature lively floral designs.

So, how can you recreate cottagecore at home? Go for a comfortable and colourful look and you will be the next trend-setter!

Juniper, based in the heart of Aberdeen’s city centre, has a wide range of locally-produced homeware and furniture to help you bring a traditional Scottish feel to your home.

Botanical living

Botanicals are a huge trend right now and we can see why. Adding florals and botanicals to your living space can inject a sense of freshness – without having to leave your home.

Botanical wallpaper is a great way to introduce the trend into your home. If you aren’t quite ready to redecorate the whole room with it, you can start with a statement wall.

This Graham and Brown wallpaper is a great way to incorporate botanical living, from £65 per roll

Still not ready to take the wallpaper leap? Pillows, cushions and soft furnishings can be another great way to incorporate botanicals into your décor. Mix up your sofa cushions by adding a leaf pattern and it will bring colour and comfort to your room.  

You can also bring the outdoors in with a range of houseplants for every room. Rooted in Scotland have a wide variety of houseplants to do just that, and we spoke to them to hear more about their top tips for looking after houseplants here.

In need of more interior inspiration?

You might be moving house or maybe you’re just looking to redecorate. If you want to give your current décor a make-over, Eileen Kesson, the interior designer behind the style of the CALA show home in Grandhome, has shared some of her favourite trends. Read her tips in our blog here.
