5. Bright palette

One of the main color trends to watch out for this year is the emphasis on light and fresh colors and bright palettes which can be translated in the design of furniture, lamp, and condo accessories.

This color trend brings a big advantage of reflecting a lot of light that makes a condo space feel warmer and more spacious. This 2021, the classic white will still be in style as well as light gray tones.

6. Minimalism in condo design and décor

Minimalism is expected to become a bigger trend this 2021 which entails using fewer elements and simplistic designs to furnish condo interior. This trend will surely make your condo unit look clean, classic, and organized. It will also make your living space feel bigger and more open.

This year, a new concept of minimalism is taking over the world of interior design – Japandi. 

Japandi is the fusion of Japanese and Scandinavian design sensibilities that combines clean lines, bright spaces, and light wood as well as natural elements. This trend is inviting us to get rid of the unnecessary and adopt a more authentic and relaxing condo interior and vibe.

7. New buzzword: Cottagecore

A new and exciting trend has emerged as more and more people are choosing to stay at home these days.

Cottagecore is the latest condo trend which is all about making your condo space cozy and artistic at the same time. Try applying this trend with the use of vintage elements such as carefully chosen antiques as well as comfortable pillows and other textiles to make your condo space relaxing, calming and aesthetic.
