Three 2021 Decor Trends That Might Surprise You

We love a good decor trend! Here are three of our favourites that we think might surprise you.

1. Grandma-Chic! Grandmillennial Style is here!

Before you roll your eyes, hang tight. 

After a quick Google search, it’s easy to see examples of this trend in action: everything from grandma-chic fashion, apartment tours and online quizzes to determine if you’re a “grandmillennial.”

What came to mind right away for us here at Digby was the popular 90s rom-com “You’ve Got Mail.” Meg Ryan’s New York City apartment in this movie is a great example of a grandma-chic aesthetic with its feminine touches of floral fabric, quilts and curved furniture pieces. It's cozy, warm and welcoming – and as it turns out, timeless!

Feeling inspired to tap into your inner Nonna?! Want to start cross stitching? If you’re ready to take on this trend in one of your rooms at home, we have some colour suggestions that will work with any grandma-inspired décor.

2. Earthy Desert Vibes

Perhaps the easiest place in your home to introduce a palette and aesthetic like this one is a bedroom. What we love about this trend, especially as we look ahead to a long winter here in Canada, is the ability to really escape within a space in your home.

Dig this vibe? Us too! An easy way to achieve this look in your home is with interior paint, either a simple accent wall or a whole new colour palette. Here are Digby’s colours that will take your space to the wild west.

Digby Paints premium interior wall paint colour Jazzquarium



As seen in many of the above photos, a clean white slate with pops of burnt orange, burgundy or deep teal is one way to achieve this look however, it does require a heavier investment in pieces like area rugs and furniture. A great bright white from our collection is Snow Angel. Two colours we recommend for those of you who want more colour is our Dune Surfing (how appropriate) and our Jazzquarium.


3. Calling all Plant Lovers!

Indoor house plants have become widely popular over the past few years, but with more people at home in 2020 and moving into 2021, this décor trend is set to continue well into 2021. Having a collection of house plants to tend to is one way to pass time, ha! Not to mention, you can even hire a plant stylist for your home now if you need some expert advice. Here is a look at how the outdoors is coming inside.

 An easy way to style a minimal and modern room is with plenty of plants, white walls and warm textures like wood, linen or jute. Our white collection gives you the ability to select from whites with warm undertones, cool undertones, bright whites, greige whites and more. Here are just a few of our most popular whites that we think would serve as great backdrops for your indoor greenery.
