Let us talk you through the 90s interiors trends that have found there way back into favour in 2021…

While dark hardwoods are also in demand at the moment, as flooring begins to play a more supporting role in our decor set ups while we opt for more simple styling. Back in the 1990s, a lot of the beautiful lighter wood was hidden by lacquer, but now we love to show it off in more minimalist set ups.

Both rattan and wicker have fallen back into favour of late, after years of being out of fashion. They’re now a staple for both outdoor and indoor furniture, finished off with a plethora of indoor plants and foilage.

Bold and brights

Brightly coloured interiors and loud wallpaper was a big part of 1990s decor, and we’re so here for the resurgence. While in 2021 we tend to opt for statement walls of bright shades or a patterned wallpaper on one wall or alternate walls, the look is well and truly adapted from the 90s.

Just like bold colours, patterned wallpapers were key to a 1990s home. We are over the moon that this trend is back with a vengence, particularly as the pastel shades in the example above from Woodchip & Magnolia represent another popular part of our favourite decade – pastel pinks. Now a huge part of the home, pastel pinks are being used across bedrooms, living rooms, kitchens and even bathrooms.

Loud artwork

Alongside these bold and bright wall colours, framed prints were also hugely popular. With gallery walls now a massive trend thanks to Pinterest, it’s easy to see how loud prints have made a comeback.
