Spring is in the air. Ready to give your home a stylish new signature look? 2021 is all about livable luxury, versatility, and effortless chic. Circa’s lavish living spaces, with dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows and breathtaking views, provide the perfect canvas for the latest home interior design trends. One of the top trends is color, so we were excited when Pantone announced not one, but two Colors of the Year: Ultimate Grey and Illuminating Yellow. Multipurpose spaces are making news, as many of us have added workspaces to our living rooms and gyms to our bedrooms.
Other major trends include neutral tones, earthy palettes, plaid fabrics, decorative smart lighting, curved shapes, plush velvets, raw materials such as rattan and reclaimed wood, and lots of texture. Great news for vintage lovers – nostalgia will continue to be a favorite design mood in the coming year. And nature lovers can bring the outdoors inside, as houseplants and indoor trees continue their ascent as a home design mainstay. We’ve rounded up some inspiring ideas, along with local DTLA resources, so can get the look you love. Check websites for hours, appointments, and health guidelines.
Get ready for a brighter future. Ultimate Grey and Illuminating Yellow are a marriage of color conveying a message of strength and hopefulness that is both enduring and uplifting. Practical and rock solid, but at the same time warming and optimistic, this is a color combination that gives us resilience and hope. These hues will inspire your lifestyle, from fashion and beauty to design and home decor
