Crochet is a big trend in 2021. With the pandemic and subsequent lockdowns imposed, people have turned to a simpler lifestyle where things were uncomplicated. In order to pass time, many folks have undertaken the complex activity of learning how to crochet. While crocheting new coasters, patches, and sweaters is pretty common, knitting an armchair cover or a throw blanket is something that perfectly goes with the warmth of the festive season.
Upholstering all the furniture will cost a pretty penny, and while this is a great alternative to knitting your own blankets, it might not get done in time for the festive season. Knitting your own cover can also be a family bonding activity that can be undertaken to spend some quality time with loved ones.
Antique furniture is always in trend - this is the evergreen trend that never goes out of style. Dust off that old armoire or that intricate side table found in the basement or grandparents’ attic.

Royal blue is a great colour option that blends in perfectly with various design styles - simply change the bed linens and the pillow covers in the living room to accommodate a major shift in the aura.

Since damask wallpapers are usually in neutrals or dark tones interspersed with white, bright colours like sunset orange, canary yellow, or grapefruit red can suffuse the living space with festive warmth.
