Color Trends of the Year
Color Trends of the Year
In 2020, many clients rediscovered their love for their home and their outdoor space. The pandemic changed how clients see their homes, how they live, and even their décor. From transforming their home into an ideal space to spending more time outside, designers are spending more time creating the perfect space for clients to live, work, and relax. We are seeing more color trends being considered when designing client spaces; read on to see our favorite color trends of the year.
Rich jewel tones add a refreshing pop of color to a room; this trend is bound to be a hit with clients this year. Colors like ruby, saffron, and sapphire are visually stimulating and add an energetic look to space. From wall colors to jewel-toned throw pillows, expect to see these shades on their own or paired as an accent with neutral color palettes. The jewel-toned shades will undoubtedly catch the eye, and the neutral color palette will accentuate it.
Sunny hues are making a significant impact this year. Yellow shades ranging from bright to soft are being used as neutrals and accents to warm-up rooms. But don’t let the sunny term fool you; mustard shades and burnt oranges will also help create a welcoming vibe. Clients are starting to incorporate peacock blue into their decor to accentuate the sunny hues. It works well to brighten up a room and create a warmer color palette while adding depth to the room.
Primary colors are making a statement this year. While we know this trend may seem a bit young, designers love incorporating this trend against muted palettes. Choose one or two primary colors to pair with a natural palette, and the primary colors will draw the eye, making it the perfect way to accent statement pieces. The vibrant shades help make a piece stand out from the rest of the room, be sure to choose primary accents that will show off the client’s true personality. It will help bring color into the room and show off their unique style without overpowering the space.
Earlier this year, Illuminating Yellow and Ultimate Gray were chosen as the 2021 Pantone colors of the year. These two classic colors work well on their own, with yellow adding a bright pop of color and gray adding a neutral color in the room. The two colors work together to express strength and add an uplifting look to the room. Whether on their own or paired together, these two colors are a great starting point when deciding on a client’s color palette.
Natural, earthy shades are a trend that is here to stay. An earthy color palette is packed full of rusts, warm greens, deep reds, and browns and is inspired by the open landscapes. We are seeing this integrated into client homes more and more to create comfortable, welcoming spaces.
Is there anything more relaxing than being poolside or by the beach? Expect to see more and more clients integrate these calm and soothing colors into their homes with aqua and inky blues. The ocean shades work great in contemporary spaces while offering a peaceful and tranquil environment. Blue shades are the perfect addition and can be integrated into client homes with paint colors, furniture, and decor items.

Design Trends Of The Year
Design Trends Of The Year
Home designs and trends are constantly changing. From furniture to wallpaper trends, we are expecting more clients to ask for these different trends to be incorporated into their homes. Keep reading to see what interior design trends you can expect to see this year.
While the minimal look is a popular option for clients, we are expecting to see a maximalist look take off this year. It gives off a free-spirited essence and eclectic feel, letting the client let their creative flair show throughout their home.
Designers expect to see sculpture furniture trending this year.
They are a fun twist on typical furniture and certainly cause a dramatic scene in cozy spaces. They perfectly combine form with function are bound to catch the eye of guests. The smooth and curved shape of the furniture adds a modern vibe to the space and helps navigate the eye around the room.
This look doesn’t have to just be in the form of furniture pieces. Sculpture decor items are an easy way for clients to showcase the same look without being overpowering in a room. Expect to see pieces grouped together to create a unique and striking piece of its own, letting clients really customize the look.
If sculptural furniture isn’t a client favorite – this is bound to catch their eye! Textured furniture is on the rage this year, and it can make an impactful addition to client’s homes. From cabinets to sideboards to even desks, furniture is starting to showcase unique texture. Some are smooth and thin, while others are showcasing slat-like grooves. While it’s a simple addition to a room, the textured surface helps accentuate the piece and make it more decorative. Pair it with other textured pieces or let it stand alone as an accent piece in a room. Clients will love the addition, and the texture will love the detailing and visual interest.
Adding vintage elements to a room is a trend that is here to stay. Antique and retro-looking pieces quickly add a vintage scheme into a modern room. Expect clients to look for the perfect addition to a room without overpowering the rest of their space. The key aspect of this trend is to keep it from overtaking the design; these elements are meant to reference the time and act as a contrasting addition to the rest of the room.
This trend is all about nostalgia and looking to add comfort to a space. This trend is on the rise, and we can expect to see it stick around for a while. It embraces simple pieces and is a nod to English countryside style, and is certainly nostalgic. While it is simple, it can be mixed with touches of more luxurious and glamorous items to create a beautifully elegant and vintage style (which is why designers love this trend so much!).
Clients are looking to elevate their homes this year after a year of working and schooling from home. It’s time they upgraded their home with more luxurious details and elements. Expect to see more demand from clients for more luxury items and furniture to be added into rooms. Items that combine comfort, function, and luxurious details will last through various trends and will be used again and again.

Renovation Trends Of The Year
Renovation Trends Of The Year
Homes drastically changed in 2020. Spending more time at home (whether that be eating, working, or just relaxing) resulted in clients wanting to turn empty space in their homes into an office, extra guest room, home gym, or even a relaxing spa. Their once-perfect home needs a few changes to make it fit their new needs. Here are a few of our favorite renovation trends that you can expect to see this year.
Open-concept living has been popular for quite some time, but homeowners are starting to realize it’s not ideal if you’re home all the time. While it makes for easy entertaining, an open concept layout is open to everything, meaning it can be hard to focus on work, meetings, or school for little ones. Expect to see clients moving away from larger rooms and replacing them with smaller ones, allowing them the space to get work done without distractions. This means adding on walls this year to existing open-concept layouts to create small offices or extra rooms.
Tiling has been popular for years, but you can expect to see larger tiles trending this year. While small tiles have been on the rage, larger tiles can help visually expand a space and make the room feel larger. From patterned tile, to more simply designed tiling, larger tiles will be making an appearance this year.
Breezeways were once a thing of the past, but they are certainly making a comeback this year. With spending more time at home, clients want to take advantage of their outdoor space and spend more time enjoying the outdoors. Expect to see porches being covered and re-done as well as breezeways being added on. Breezeways are the perfect way to combine inside and outside without having to worry about extreme weather.
Making Use Of Unused Space
More than ever, clients are looking to re-do unused spaces, like garages and attics. These were once used as storage spaces and are being renovated to be fully functional. These spaces are being put to good use and completely reimaged as home offices, gyms, in-law spaces, and even playrooms. It gives the client and their family extra space to work and relax, without having to do it all from the same room. It helps them maximize the space in their home and can be designed to fit their specific needs, no matter what they are looking for.
A trend we can expect to stick around for a while is bathroom renovations. With more time being spent at home working, clients are looking for ways to rest and relax from the comfort of their own homes. Why not turn a bathroom into a spa-like experience? It helps reduce stress and allows the client to focus on rest and relaxation, letting them feel like they are experiencing a spa day. From soaking tubs to steam showers to even heated floors, the options are truly endless. Combine these products with a built-in steam room or even a bidet to create the ultimate bathroom oasis.
Windows & Natural light
With more time spent indoors, clients are looking for more natural light to fill their homes. Sun-filled spaces help boost productivity and help clients stay happy and positive, making it a must for working from home. Expect to see windows and skylights being added to more homes this year.
Natural wood flooring has been popular for quite some time, especially lighter woods like oak. It is the perfect addition to more farmhouse-style spaces but works well in modern, contemporary, and even eclectic areas. For years, extra wide planks were trending but this year, expect to see planks that are a bit slimmer. Clients are starting to look for smaller planks, roughly around medium size, 5-6 inch planks. While it still fits in with most styles, it helps create a different look on the floor.
What renovation trends are you looking forward to seeing more of? We’d love to know!
Designing Post Pandemic
Designing Post Pandemic
A global pandemic has impacted the world in so many different ways and has affected everyday life as we know it. It’s no surprise it’s influencing the interior design world. More time is being spent inside, and designers will see more homes being remodeled to have extra rooms turned into offices, classrooms for kids, yoga studios, gyms, movie rooms, and art studios, all while keeping a luxurious feel. Read on to find out the different design trends that have come out of the pandemic.

Embracing Outdoor Spaces
Outdoor spaces are becoming a critical essential post-pandemic. Indoor spaces are designed to be extended into the outdoors with glass doors that can be easily pulled open and closed. With a focus on standout features like swimming pools, outdoor kitchens, and sprawling gardens, the outdoor space is becoming the new entertainment space. Embracing the outdoors also means embracing the seasonal changes. Fire pits, outdoor fireplaces, and patio heaters add warmth, while covered pergolas and shade sails by a luxurious pool to create shade overhead.
When creating the ultimate outdoor area to recharge and relax, no detail will be forgotten. Small textured items like outdoor rugs, furniture, pillows, and throws will help enhance the outdoor space to feel more inviting and luxurious.
Open-concept floor plans have been a must-have favorite for years and were once thought here to stay. While the open design offers flexibility, the design is quickly falling out of fashion due to its limits on practicality during the pandemic. Expect to see more design layouts with more defined rooms and areas. Having distinguished rooms and areas within the layout will help define spaces to help separate work and play.
Storage for Everything
Storage is becoming an essential part of the custom build process. From a well-designed mudroom to a garage with walls of build-cabinets, storage is planned in every room. Knowing that there will be a space for everything keeps things organized and uncluttered. The extra storage space keeps the area feeling orderly and helps accommodate everyday life’s ever-changing tasks.
A pale blue custom upholstery and ivory rattan finish give an elegant bespoke look to our Baldwin Swivel Arm Chairs. Remember, many of our pieces can be customized in any Palecek fabric, or personalized with your own material to create a furniture piece that compliments your space perfectly. Many Palecek furniture pieces are entirely customizable with 30 different finish options, over 100 Palecek fabric options, or COM to create a furniture piece that compliments your space perfectly. Learn more about our diverse finish options with our saved Story highlights.

Nature Inspired Tones
Nature-inspired tones are on the rise and warming up all aspects of interior design. From textiles to furniture to even wall colors, you can expect to see palettes full of warm and natural tones splashed throughout the entire layout and design. Warm, neutral colors help to accentuate texture, which is vital in creating comfort and reassurance. By mixing and matching earthy browns, greens, and warm tones, the colors help to play a big part in creating a space that feels relaxing while still giving off a luxurious look.
Air quality has been a surprising trend, and we see it incorporated into more and more layouts. Focusing on increasing air quality and natural light means more floor to ceiling windows, balconies, patios, and indoor gardens. While it adds to the overall design layout, it supports natural air, natural light and promotes overall health and wellness.
While having the floor to ceiling windows and sliding doors promotes better airflow and air quality, it is essential in promoting natural light. Light not only helps set the tone and feel of space but creates a better connection between the indoors and outdoors, allowing you to see the natural world and greenery regularly. Expect to see larger windows and sheer window treatments to help open up the outdoors and enhance the natural light.
Most of our lives are spent online, even before the pandemic. Today, the focus on the digital world has grown exponentially. From virtual working to virtual tourism, it’s a trend we are seeing take over every aspect of the world, specifically the interior design world. During the custom build process, expect to see more digital elements taken into consideration. From planning a designer approved background for meetings to including technology hookups in every room, it will play a huge part in the home planning process.

Designing Post Pandemic
Embracing Home Offices
The days of working from the kitchen table are over. With more and more clients working from home, offices have become a staple when it comes to designing and planning a home layout. From remodeling small closets into extra office nooks or building an addition for a custom office space, a defined area for working from home will become essential in every home layout.
Just like home offices, entertainment spaces will become essential when it comes to planning home layouts. With more enhanced technology installations, like home movie theatres and built-in game rooms, entertainment spaces will be crucial for clients. Basements and extra rooms are being remodeled and transformed into art studios, playrooms, and theatres, while custom home builds are planning entertainment spaces into the layout from the start.
Combining Design With Health
The pandemic has influenced the importance of interior design with health. Creating spaces to prevent the spread, like designing landings to take off shoes, has become more popular in the planning process. Homes are being customized and designed to consider the wellbeing and health of others before entering the home.

Home Spas & Wellness Areas
Steam functions, infrared saunas, and massage areas have become a design must-have, remodeling bathrooms into luxurious retreats during the pandemic. From large soaking tubs to outdoor showers, designers are creating a luxurious spa-like experience in bathrooms and wellness rooms within the homes. Water and waterfalls can be therapeutic. Combining water, light, and glass is an elegant decor addition to these wellness areas. It adds privacy while creating a spa-like experience.
Boutique Gym Experience
Not only has it influenced wellness designs, but it has turned homes into a new boutique gym. While gym spaces were often forgotten about when customizing a home build, it is now a focus when planning the layout. From floor to ceiling windows to soundproofing built into the walls, home gyms have become essential in the planning process. From built-in technology features like speakers and televisions, virtual training will be explored through the comfort of an at-home boutique-like gym experience.
Forget the designer shoe closet; the kitchen pantry is on-trend these days. While pantries were often overlooked in the home layout before the pandemic, it’s become an essential step in the custom home build process. Expect to see large pantries full of beautifully built-in cabinets and multi-level shelving to store extra supplies and snacks.
Since the pandemic, the quality of fabrics, where it’s from, and the longevity has been at the forefront of everyone’s mind. Knowing that the products are built to last while still being beautiful and luxurious has become an essential part of the designing process. Expect to have conversations with clients about quality and comfort, not just look.
