Winter is behind us. The days are getting longer and summer feels like it’s already here (especially in Tampa Bay).

Since we’ve spent more time inside over the past year, many of us have found a new appreciation for our space. At the same time, we’ve also recognized what is no longer working for us.

Spring is the perfect time to refresh and renew our surroundings. Consider these five surprising interior design trends that may just make your life a whole lot easier, more sustainable, and more fun!

Edible Gardens

Edible Garden

Nothing “beets” having fresh vegetables, fruits, and herbs right at your fingertips, right? (see what we did there?)

One thing is for sure - edible gardens are here to stay!

If you don’t have a green thumb, no worries! Try growing these if you’re in or around Tampa Bay: basil, mango, and pineapple!

Granny Chic or Grandmillenial

Granny Chic

The days of perfectly matched, mid-century modern furniture are over!

It’s time to embrace patterns and your Grandma’s living room!

Think vintage, upcycled hand-me-downs.

Get as creative as you want. Pretty much anything goes!

Wallpaper

Wallpaper

Wallpaper is back in style!

Don’t worry - this is not your grandparents’ wallpaper. There are lots of peel-and-stick options now that make it easy to switch up your space on a whim.

From accent walls to ceiling decor, freshen up your space without feeling like you’ll be doomed forever if you don’t love it!

Green Kitchens

Green Kitchen

Green kitchens aren’t for everyone, but they are trending right now!

If you’re worried about going all in and painting your cabinets green, go for a more subtle backsplash to start.

Thinking of jumping on the green bandwagon of 2021? These tips will help you avoid disaster.

Bidets

Bidet

Yes, bidets.

Because the great toilet paper shortage of 2020 had to lead somewhere.

It’s an added bonus that bidets are much better for the environment.

According to Business Insider,

“For one, it's more environmentally friendly. The bidet uses only one-eighth of a gallon of water, while it takes about 37 gallons of water to make a single roll of toilet paper. Americans spend $40 to $70 a year on average for toilet paper and use approximately 34 million rolls of toilet paper a day. Investing in a bidet seat or bidet attachment can lower your spending on toilet paper by 75% or more. You'll also be saving some of the 384 trees that are cut down to make a single person's lifetime toilet-paper supply.“

Are you convinced enough to try one?

2021 is off to a fun start when it comes to design trends. Which one of these will you try first?
