Inspiring mosaic art trends in 2021

(4 min read) With the new year comes great hope and optimism for the future, and these sentiments show in our interior design choices. Whether it’s adding blush-toned décor, bringing the outdoors in, or paying tribute to nostalgia and tradition, homeowners are looking for ways to add a sense of calm to their living spaces in 2021.

Are you looking for mosaic art inspired by this year’s home decorating trends? We have curated a list of available and custom designs that are at once trendy and stylish.

1. Abstract ideas

Minimalist abstract art with organic shapes and soft shades are in vogue this year. It’s all about squiggles and wiggles, says Architectural Digest. But why limit yourself to decorating your space with trendy rippling forms and neutral hues? Go against the current and add bursts of color with an abstract and bold design inspired by modern mosaic masters.

From succulents and palms to lilies and orchids, houseplants helped us destress throughout 2020. And we will continue to see greenery in households well into 2021. Houseplants have never been more fashionable, reports Homes & Gardens. Not only do plants add a touch of much-needed color and nature to homes, but they also freshen indoor air. Proudly show off your green thumb with a modern mosaic featuring your favorite blooms and houseplants.

Nostalgia is the keyword for 2021 as many of us continue to live far from our parents and grandparents. One of the trends that Better Homes & Gardens has written about in recent months is the “granny chic” or “grand millennial” style. Imagine your grandmother’s home, but less dated and stuffy and more fashionable with a quirky twist. Cherish childhood memories with these mosaic ideas featuring maximalist floral and antique patterns.

4. True blue

Although the Pantone Color Institute announced Ultimate Grey and Illuminating as their Colors of the Year for 2021, Benjamin Moore, PPG, and Glidden opted for bluish tints such as Aegean Teal, Misty Aqua, and Aqua Fiesta. If home dwellers are not looking for vivid shades, they are looking for serene hues like blues and aquas. Use the psychology of color to your advantage, or simply remind yourself of the ocean, with these mosaic ideas in ultramarine, navy, and teal.

5. Tradition and heritage

Not only are homeowners getting inspiration from generations past, they are also looking to great European estates and museums for ideas. Think traditionalist, but not antique or ancient. In traditionalist interiors, furnishings, décor, and artwork all pay homage to classical art and world cultures. Further, Veranda anticipates a “gravitational pull towards traditional-leaning décor… perhaps in unexpected ways.” Keep your home looking timeless rather than archaic by considering modern mosaics with traditional designs, yet in newer touches and finishes.

    I’m sad that we are stuck renting another year. My decor changes can only come in added shelves. Otherwise I’d be wanting to get a marvelous mosaic above the fireplace. Love the peacock!
