Top 3 Interior Home Design Trends for the New Year

By Rebecca Wardon, Interior Design Manager

Last month we discussed new exterior home design trends for 2021. This month we’re bringing it inside. Here are some of the colors, materials, and styles that are trending this year in interior design.


If you read our aforementioned exterior design blog, this might sound familiar to you, but the bright new interior trend in 2021 is actually going dark.

Just take a look at Sherwin Williams’ 2021 color of the year, Urbane Bronze. This color is a dark and warm neutral that offers the “simple sophistication every space is searching for,” according to the manufacturer. It’s a color that adds sophisticated tranquility, and we all need a little tranquility these days.

And if that isn’t dark enough for you, we’re also seeing plenty of black wood tone cabinets, black accents, and even black countertops! (Keep your eyes peeled for this year’s parade home if that intrigues you…)


Sometimes the best looks for inside your home can come from outside the home. Natural elements are showing up everywhere in 2021. Maybe that’s because we’ve all been spending a lot more time indoors and need that connection to the outside world, or maybe it’s just an easy way to simplify in a crazy world. Either way, it looks great and feels even better.

Natural elements often show up as wood grains in hardwood or luxury vinyl plank flooring, open wood shelving, house plants, and organic colors like, you guessed it, green. Whether it’s emerald green, gray-green, forest green, or any other green you can think of, we’re seeing it pop up more and more in backsplashes, on walls and in accessories.

Natural elements bring a refreshing look to your home and connect you back to nature.


Really interior design in 2021 boils down to one thing: creating a space for you to feel safe, comfortable, and happy – a sanctuary. Calming dark tones and refreshing natural elements are two great ways to accomplish this and that’s why they’ve become so popular.

But at the end of the day, it’s your sanctuary. So think about what your zen is. Maybe it’s a meaningful piece of furniture that you want to design around or a favorite color. Find what makes you really feel at home, and go for it.

If you’re looking to build your own sanctuary, talk to a Bielinski New Home Consultant today.


  • When we rightsized from our home of 43 years to a Bielinski Condo in Bay Pointe, our New Home Consultant answered all of our questions and communicated with us the entire way. We’re fully enjoying our beautiful new home and the condo community.
    John and Jean Jones
  • I’ve been so impressed and completely satisfied with the entire Bielinski building experience. From the initial sale and throughout the construction process I have appreciated Bielinski’s professionalism, craftsmanship, and follow-through.
    Heidi Hamilton
  • We are extremely happy with our new Bielinski Condo. It’s well-built and full of all the features we wanted in our home.
    Deborah and Brian Blackney
  • We chose Bielinski because they are a family-owned business and have been building in the Pewaukee area for a long time. The Clemont floor plan is just perfect for all of our family events and Packer parties.
    Bob and Darla Landgren
  • We couldn’t be happier with our new home! The entire process was fantastic. Everyone was so responsive and quick to help. Bielinski’s knowledge of the industry was invaluable. We recommend Bielinski to anyone looking for their next home.
    Mike and Kristin Smith
  • We had a really good experience with Bielinski from start to finish. Everyone was responsive and reliable. Now we are enjoying life in our new home.
    Peter Holzwart and Therese Gaynor-Holzwart
  • Once I got settled in, I knew I was exactly where I belong. Without Bielinski’s knowledge and communication, I would still be questioning whether I should build at all. Thanks to the entire team that made this all possible.
    Barb King
  • We have just purchased our third Bielinski Home in the last 22 years, a Bielinski condo. We have found that Bielinski Homes builds quality homes for fair prices. The craftsmanship of construction and finishing is exceptional, plus they make the buying and building process easy with great customer experience. We would strongly recommend a Bielinski Home.
    Jerald and Jeanne Filut
  • We absolutely loved working with Bielinski Homes — the kindness and knowledge they shared sold us on wanting to move to our new neighborhood. We were worried about moving. But we had no doubts in our minds after speaking with our New Home Consultant about the community and the neighbors. We couldn’t be happier with our new home and new neighborhood.
