Interior design has the potential to change the atmosphere of a space completely. Everyone has their own personal taste in interior design, especially when it comes to fitting your unique needs, preferences, and living habits, but looking at current trends can be a great inspiration. Some styles are steeped in culture and have a long-standing history in the interior design world, while others are newer to mainstream trends.
As a professional Hong Kong interior design company, we have helped countless homeowners in Hong Kong design and create their dream space. Interior design trends come and go, serving as pillars of inspiration for new and innovative designs that push the boundaries of interior design trends. Each new design contributes to Hong Kong’s reputation as home to some of the most modern and characterful interior design scenes. From styles that create a spacious and minimalist feel to those with bold contrasts, all can make your space feel like home. Read on to learn more about some of 2021’s most influential and popular styles.
Scandinavian home décor is characterised by creating a sense of space. In small Hong Kong homes, this can be a huge benefit, so it’s no surprise this style has become one of the most popular home décor styles in Hong Kong. Along with this, this style aims to make your space feel as cosy and inviting as possible. If you want a space you can feel truly at home and where you can wind down and relax, a Scandinavian design could be right for you. It’s characterised by a neutral and monochromatic colour scheme with modern and subtle details that complement plenty of natural and organic materials. Solid wood chairs, tables, and other Nordic-style furniture pieces are often paired with this style of home décor.
Industrial style home décor has a similarly modern look and feel to it, but instead focuses on a rawer and grittier feel. Industrial style home decor is characterised by unfinished surfaces like brick, wood, and concrete, as well as exposed structural elements like beams and pillars. Together with an earthy, natural colour pallet, industrial style home décor gives a bold and cosy look. Expect to find pieces of furniture made from cast iron, brass, and other metals, as well as many different shades of brown from leather, brick, and wood. As a Hong Kong interior design company, we’ve noticed this style gain significant traction throughout 2021, as it offers a sense of nostalgia alongside promoting conservation by reclaiming objects and giving them new life.
If you want to pull off a luxe look that feels fancy without being opulent, this is the style for you. An understated luxury interior focuses on the more subtle characteristics of interior design. This style gives off a subtle yet bold and elegant look within your space with a metallic and jewel toned colour pallet and the use of natural materials like stone, wood, granite, marble, and concrete. At first glance, understated luxury interior design offers a light and calming atmosphere, but a closer look reveals small details and accents in the furniture with the use of golds, crystal chandeliers, and more.
There are two main types of Japanese home décor that found their footing in Hong Kong homes in 2021. First is a more modern Japanese home décor style, milder in colour and complemented with additions that make the space feel brighter and more in line with the preferences of modern living. Then there is a more traditional style, which harkens back to the older days with rich, earthy browns and a spacious design without overbearing pieces of furniture. Above all, Japanese-style interior design is characterised by decluttered spaces with plenty of wood in the floorboards, furniture, beams, and even walls. Many homes designed under Japanese influence lean towards minimalism and make great use of careful and deliberate arrangements.
Minimalist design has made a resurgence in popularity in Hong Kong recently. Its simple design style serves to boil a space down to its essence and reinvigorate your home without adding clutter. Through a simple yet bold colour scheme and straight lines, a minimalist interior design can elevate a space and make it seem far bigger than it actually is – something vital in smaller Hong Kong homes. Minimal interior designs also place significant emphasis on having plenty of natural lighting and only contain the most essential pieces of furniture – nothing else. You will find lots of clean and straight lines, an emphasis on form and function, and plenty of plain surfaces without too much decoration.
