Think Wood: What interior design trends are you seeing emerge for 2021?
Brian Patrick Flynn: Embracing “stuff” is a huge trend for 2021. With so many people spending more time at home than ever, being surrounded by things that are personal and that make them happy is replacing the need to have less, and live minimalistically and clutter-free. I think maximalism will have a huge resurgence — mixing patterns, adding more layers, bringing in window treatments instead of bare windows — all of these will become very visible. I also think we are going to see mauve reinvented in a very fresh way. Not the skin tone mauves of the 1980s, but much more white shades of mauve with slight lavender undertones. I see this with upholstery and wall colors.
