New research reveals 2021’s biggest décor trends around the world 

The home decor trends going in and out for 2021 have been revealed in new research from Roofing Megastore. The study analyzed Google Trends data over the course of 2020 on a range of different interior styles, colors, furniture, home improvement items and accessories to find out which will dominate in 2021 and which are on the way out.

Cottagecore prevailed with a massive 1,075% increase in popularity since the start of the year. Loved for its return to simpler, more calming times and a greater connection with nature, it’s no surprise that the homely style of Cottagecore is proving so popular. The healthy aesthetic is also reflected in other options that are high on the list, such as dried flowers, macrame, antique mirrors, wallcoverings, and roof lanterns that let in more of the outside world.

In terms of paint color, dark green walls have seen a 103% increase, while once-coveted dark blue walls seem to be the home decor trend with the biggest drop, with the moody hue seeing a 64% drop in popularity over the past year. Other trends we’re fed up with include subway tile, industrial lighting, retro style, and statement walls.
