Whether you have just bought a new home and want to put your stamp on it, or you are in the process of renovating your property, or maybe you simply fancy a change, many of us turn to Instagram for inspiration. But which interior design style is most popular? Bold accents or muted tones? Rustic charm or modern minimalism?
To find out, we scoured through thousands of interior posts and hashtags on the popular photo sharing app to identify the top ten interior design trends for 2021.
So, which interior design trends are the most popular?
1. Rustic décor (3,186,331 hashtags)
The rustic look is almost always a winner, which is why it comes as no surprise that this interior design trend tops the list in our Instagram study, by racking up more than three million hashtags on the app.
The key to nailing this interior design trend is the use of natural materials, namely reclaimed and unfinished woods and stones. Often, you’ll find this style in the form of tables, accent chairs, floorboards, and exposed beams and logs.
Whilst you won’t find modern furnishings and materials in this décor trend, contemporary rustic styles combine elements of the old and new for a fresh, light and grounded aesthetic – a trend that’s also on the rise.
