Planning a spruce-up this spring? Perhaps a big deep clean, a lick of fresh paint and a reshuffle of your furniture and furnishings?
If you’re looking for some inspiration, we’ve written a bunch of articles covering some of the trends set to surge in 2021. We’ve noticed several themes emerge: from calming and relaxing neutral colours to cosmic and celestial motifs. Both the Japandi aesthetic and junglecore are set to grow in popularity this year too.
In this article, we’re checking out six of the UK’s best-loved brands and department stores’ spring/summer 2021 collections and taking a look at products about to hit the high street. Perfect to help you plan your renovations.
B&Q have just launched their new designer-inspired furniture range. The DIY and home improvement company want us to turn unused areas into cosy corners. The collection features stylish chairs, stools, side tables, coffee tables and wallpaper.
Annie Sloan will launch a new chalk paint colour this spring, named Capri Pink. According to the brand, “folk palettes from around the globe” inspired this vivid hue.
“F]rom Mexican textiles to Pakistani truck art to Romany gypsy caravan interiors, bright pinks have been turning heads for centuries. Capri Pink is a true hot pink with depth and energy, provocative yet captivating. Use it as an accent colour alongside cool-toned brights, with reds and pinks for a tonal symphony, or buffer with warm cocoa-toned hues for sophisticated elegance. Named after the upscale Italian island resort, Capri Pink will inject glamour, confidence and joy.”Annie Sloan
We’d love to see this bright shade breathe new life into an old piece of furniture, or provide a fun splash of bold colour to an otherwise bland wall.
For spring/summer 2021, Cox & Cox will release their new collection of hand-picked luxury home furniture, including statement pieces to add a bit of interest and intrigue to your room. The collection taps into some of the trends we’ve predicted will dominate over the next twelve months. We spied a hanging chair, rattan furniture, a drinks trolley, metallic furniture with an art deco twist and screens to section off rooms–all items we’ve discussed on this blog at some point or another.
Dunelm’s SS21 Edited Life collection will bring to calmness we all crave this year. They’ve tapped into a couple of trends with this collection, featuring understated pieces chosen for their simple beauty, high-quality craftsmanship and innate usefulness. Look for the 100% linen cushions, origami paper light pendants, soy candles and recycled glass vases.
Meanwhile, the company’s Equatorial collection is joyful with an appreciation for the natural world. The collection incorporates wild animal and tropical forest motifs, plus a lively and colourful decorating scheme.
Gisela Graham is one of the world’s leading giftware and homeware companies. They supply products to some of the country’s leading retailers. They’ve also found inspiration in nature this season. We’re going wild over their meadow-inspired prints, released for the spring/summer 2021. We think this Reed Diffuser will look wonderful on a windowsill with the sun streaming behind. And imagine these cups and jugs in the kitchen? Beautiful.
Living It Up is just one of many brands embracing all things green at the moment. We’re loving how they’ve styled their emerald-coloured furniture, subtly incorporating the junglecore trend into their styling by using giant leafy prints on cushions and in artwork.
