    Discover The Top Interior Design Trends for 2021

    To say 2020 has been a challenging year would be an understatement. After living in the grip of uncertainty for so long, we could all do with a positive change, no matter how small. And what better pick-me-up than a redecorating project to freshen up our home and our mood in 2021?

    Here are the top interior design trends for 2021! 

    Light Colored Wood

    In recent years we’ve witnessed a clear shift towards natural materials like wood. 2021 is all about using light woods inspired by the popular Scandinavian style everyone knows and loves. This year, the focus is on using wood creatively, not just as a flooring solution, but also on walls and ceilings, to add an extra layer of coziness to living spaces. 

    And what could go better on a wooden wall than a statement piece from Real Steel? Metal and wood are a match made in design heaven! 

    Sustainable Decor

    It’s not surprising that one of the main decorating trends in 2021 is investing in sustainable decor - after all, it goes hand in hand with the shift towards natural interior design materials. 

    Now you may be wondering, is metal wall art sustainable? The short answer: YES. The long answer was covered in this blog post we wrote a while back.

    One of the main reasons why steel is considered a sustainable material is because of its endless lifecycle: once it’s made, it can be recycled over and over. 

    Not to mention that our steel art is the kind that gets passed down generations, so it won’t end up in the bin after a few years, like many other decorations.

    Grey tones in the living room

    One trend we’re particularly excited about is the use of moderate & elegant grey tones. They might not be the obvious choice when you renovate your home, but there’s a good reason why grey is a superstar in 2021: it’s highly versatile and can be successfully used in different styles, from classic contemporary to industrial or eclectic. 

    Grey walls are also a joy to decorate. Whether you choose a bold, colorful painting or a modern steel creation, you’ll create a unique combination that could easily go on the cover of a design magazine!

    Brick walls

    The brick wall trend has been around for a while and looks like it’s here to stay. In 2021, we can expect brick statement walls to take over our living rooms and kitchens - and in all honesty, we’re not complaining! 

    Needless to say, metal wall art is perfect for brick walls and creates an industrial vibe you can’t help but love.

    These are the main design trends we can look forward to in 2021, but there’s also an “unofficial” trend that has taken over not just the US, but the entire world: shopping local.
