Bright, fluorescent neons – not what you might expect for a big interiors trend, however Pinterest has found that searches for ‘Neon Rooms’ have grown by 8 times this year thanks to Gen Z looking for ways to create a colourful home. Think colour-changing LED lighting such as Philips Hue, which you can expect to see more of in 2021.

Japan and Scandinavia may be many thousands of miles apart, but they share a common design language which has lead to the creation of the term Japandi. Pared-back minimalism meets natural materials with a focus on craftsmanship. This year, the Pantechnicon opened in London, a concept store dedicated to this cultural fusion, while Pinterest searches for Japandi were up 100%.

In 2020, our homes did double-duty – becoming workplaces, schools, makeshift hairdressers and more. While many will be keen to get back into the world in 2021, there’s no denying that our mindset on our homes has changed, and going forward, you may see more homes which have multifunctional spaces as to not be caught short again.

Searches for ‘cloffice ideas’, that’s closet offices to you and me, doubled, while home libraries, bookshelf room dividers and gaming rooms were all also on the rise.
