Seven inspiring design trends for 2021 and beyond

The team at Johnson Tiles offer seven trends and colour inspirations paving the way in 2021 and beyond.

25/05/2021 2 min read

COVID-19 has dramatically changed the way we live, so it’s not surprising it is already having a huge influence on the way we design. We are re-imagining how we use and design interior spaces, and seeking inspiration from emerging trends and key colours palettes that have longevity and flexibility in such uncertain times. 


This trend encourages a natural rhythm and balance to modern life, taking inspiration from Japanese culture and traditions. Shape and pattern have links to Origami, concertina folds and panelling, with a ‘less is more’ approach. Handcrafted aesthetics are key to this trend, with colours captured on a spectrum scale from earthy neutrals to deep blues and greens for calming interiors.


Mindfulness and spiritual roots form the basis for this trend, with a seductive colour palette focusing on rich indigos and deep purples. Add splashes of colour for bold accents or try timeless earthy hues. Luxury materials and surfaces provide a hint of glamour, creating a positive and engaging aesthetic for any space.

Nature Inspired

Still a key trend, Nature Inspired focuses on bringing the outside indoors. Influenced by natural materials, colours and plants, this trend creates a harmonious mix, with foliage décor moving to a more stylised and loose approach. This season’s colour palette is given a slight edgy feel with Military Olive showcasing a mossy tone, while Ultramarine Green brings seaweed-esque notes for a stronger, more confident shade.

Brave Ground

Dulux Colour nominated Brave Ground as Colour of the Year for 2021, as it is an earthy, neutral tone that connects back to nature and simplicity. With warm base notes, Brave Ground creates a feeling of stability and growth, providing a firm foundation for change and creativity. This colour is perfect for creating a calming, tranquil atmosphere, complemented by pops of colour for interest and depth.

Modern Mix

Modern Mix explores a nostalgic comeback from the 70s, paired with a modern twist. This trend showcases a muted colour palette to create a design statement that is simplistic but powerful.


Geometrics have been a staple for many years now, with hexagons and chevrons still vital. Shapes are smoother and more rounded across all design aspects, including furniture. Geometrics can create symmetry and balance within any setting or can be used as a feature visual to create interest and appeal.

Surface Detail

Surface detail continues to push the boundaries across all aspects of interiors, taking inspiration from the Nature Inspired and Serenity trends, alongside architecture and geometrics. All surfaces evoke texture and depth from highly structured to organic raised surfaces.
