Last spring the majority of us spent more time at home than ever before. Pandemic and constant lockdowns surely shift our perspectives on how important the home environment is for our wellbeing. With that being said, home trends for spring and summer 2021 are expected to be led by the desire to make our spaces more balanced and calm. From the colours that impact our moods, to natural elements that bring us feelings of connection with nature there are a variety of ways how you can implement them in your life. Today, we have picked up our favourite styles and trends that will inspire you to make some changes in the upcoming season.
1.Rustic Style- Cottagecore
The trend of nature-inspired decor is not anything new. In fact, the Cottagecore style has been around for a few years now. However, this spring especially, countryside decor is expected to be one of the leading design trends.
“Cottagecore is all about the outdoors and slow living – think Anne of Green Gables meets The Secret Garden” – says Lucy Blackall
Inspired by agricultural life, the style embraces simple life that is harmonious with nature. Natural woods, soft and neutral colour palettes, flower accents. Those are some of the key aesthetic elements of the Cottagecore style.
At Your Blinds Direct, we have a wide selection of window blinds that will complement well Cottagecore inspired interiors. For example, our Palette White Vertical Blind will easily blend into neutral interiors.

2. Earthy tones
We will see the rising popularity of neutral and warm accents in spring interiors. Timeless, and very versatile they are perfect shades to create a more comforting and welcoming environment. Inspired by nature, earthy shades will bring cosiness to your home. That’s why there is no surprise that Brave Ground has been chosen as Dulux 2021 Colour of the Year.
“A bolstering shade that connects back to nature and the simple things. A beautiful warm brown shade signifies balance. Comforting and grounding, this colour will coordinate well with rich earthy tones such as ochre, blues and greens”
One of the effective ways to transform the look of your room to more natural and earthy is to choose the blinds in the right shade for your colour palette.

Beige Vertical Blinds will pair beautifully with earthy colour palettes.

4. Grandmillenial style
Grandmillenial trend has recently become popular among the younger generations. This new interior design trend features a mix of patterns and styles with a strong emphasis on personality and uniqueness. Overall, the Grandmillenial style has its roots in a traditional style with a modern twist in it.
“Raised during the mass market furniture explosion, Millenials are rebelling against the monochromatic catalog looks that they were raised with and are looking to earlier generations for inspiration." says interior designer Kevin Isbell
With the rising popularity of this style on Instagram and Pinterest, we will see a lot more “Grandma Chic” interiors this spring. Those will feature bright colours, various prints, and textures.
To archive, Granmillenial style you should experiment with colourful patterns. Flowers and floral furniture, wallpapers, curtains, and blinds are a great way to transform simple interiors. For example, you can layer patterned Roman Blind with some colourful curtains.
Our Posy Senses Mirage range features beautiful flower patterns that will bring some of the Grandmillenial style accents to your space.

The mix of Japanese design and Scandinavian minimalism will rise in popularity in the upcoming months. As we all know, our everyday surrounding has a huge impact on our wellness. Therefore, we should create a harmonious space at our home.
"Combining the content and cosy feel of Scandinavain hygge, with the Japanese foundations of feng shui and minimalism, this trend strikes the perfect balance between cosy, home comforts and fresh, modern style."
You can implement some elements of the Japanadi style by adding light wood furniture and decorations to your interior. To create a peaceful environment focus on choosing pale colour palettes for larger pieces such as furnishings and walls.
