Five Popular Interior Design Trends On Instagram To Inspire Your Renovation

12 min read

A viable treasure trove of inspiration, it’s no secret we often turn to Instagram to uncover the latest trends in fashion, beauty and interior design – the latter of which is quickly gaining pace given how much time we’ve spent indoors.

From the popular Scandi trend that’s taking the style set by storm to the colour schemes that will evoke a sense of calm throughout your abode, MOJEH rounds up the top five interior trends of 2021 and beyond.


Minimalist, clean and eternally chic, browse through any design magazine and you’re sure to come across a huge portfolio of all-white living spaces. A trend with the popular Scandinavian seal of approval (more on this later), there’s something about its simple aesthetic that draws us in every time. The no make-up make-up trend of interior design, this look is all about crisp white walls and plenty of natural light which in turn brings an air of calmness and comfort to any living space.


While house plants are more certainly more than just a passing trend – research shows that indoor plants not only reduce air and noise pollution, they also boost wellbeing and reduce stress – the past few years have seen ferns and palms, succulents and herb gardens flourish across textiles and fashion. If you’re missing spending time outside during the summer, a large potted fern can help bring the outside into a living room while trailing plants look great in a bathroom, displayed in hanging macrame baskets and along the windowsill.

The interiors trend for minimalist lovers, the Scandi design trend is for those who strongly believe there’s beauty in simplicity. All clean lines, natural hues and modern designs, look for ceramic statement vases, monochrome rugs and simplistic round mirrors. The Nordic nature also calls for minimal window treatments that allow light to pour into a space, so be sure to keep your rooms nice and bright.


One of the more surprising things trending right now is the humble kitchen pantry – an essential part of any modern kitchen. However with families spending more time together and our kitchens becoming important socialising spaces, it’s easy to see why. Exquisitely organised and Pinterest-perfect, customised cans and jars are a must, while open storage is increasingly popular, meaning beloved decorative pieces can be beautifully displayed or those essential items used most frequently can be accessed effortlessly.


Taking the interior design world by storm, the rattan trend shows no sign of abating. Great for those after an effortlessly chic, Bohemian look, Tulum-inspired natural textures in bleached neutral tones evoke a bright, beachy feel that’s sustainable to boot. Try an ornate bamboo headboard above your bed, rattan storage solutions or more subtle decorative items to start, while the trend works beautifully both indoors and outdoors too, making it a great option for the garden.
