Upgrading Your WFH Space and Style: Spring 2021

Upgrading Your WFH Space and Style: Spring 2021

By Admin Tini Lux

Spring is here (if you couldn’t already tell by our multiple blog posts discussing the spring season) and seasonal home decor has entered the chat. There’s something about switching out the Mahogany Teakwood candle for a  Limoncello candle that just feels right.

As most of us will continue to work from home for the foreseeable future, it’s only right that we upgrade our workspace (and style) with some Instagram-worthy spring season trends. Even if you’re not working from home, seasonal decor always gives you another excuse to make a Target run. Say goodbye to your Winter ‘21 forest green vibes and hello to pops of color and vintage accessories.

Pastel and Bright Accents 

When you think of spring colors, pastel is often one of the first words to come to mind. Decorilla suggests adding pastel-colored accents such as pillows or decor pieces that will help add a sense of spring and liveliness to your home decor. When making additions to your WFH space, consider adding a light blue throw blanket to the back of your “office” chair for a cozy but springtime vibe.

Not only are bright colors a popular spring home decor trend, but bubblegum pink has also been reported as a major 2021 fashion trend. Swap out your favorite pair of work from home sweats for a sweet bubblegum pink pair and start to embrace all the spring feels.

Indoor Plants 

We began to see the rise of indoor plants last summer and expect to continue to see the home decor trend surge throughout 2021. Adding a touch of nature to any space automatically brings a sense of calmness and tranquility. The aesthetically pleasing look of indoor plants is not only great for snapping a pic for social media but provides a number of different benefits. Reducing stress levels, boosting moods, and increasing activity levels, make indoor plants the perfect addition to your WFH space. Indoor plants are a decor trend that can be shown off all year round.

Accessories Overload 

Apartment Therapy reports that the more is more mentality is the way to go when it comes to decorative accessorizing.  The pandemic (more specifically, the rise of Zoom) has paved the way for a rebirth of maximalism. Featuring pops of color, vintage accents, and numerous textures, the more you have to look at the better. This trend opens up the door for you to express your creativity, show off your thrifted collectibles and display your personality.  

Creating a perfect Instagram-worthy backdrop for Zoom meetings is important, so consider adding a maximalist inspired bookshelf to your WFH space. Fill it with all the trinkets, vibrant accent pieces, and any miscellaneous items you can think of, maybe throw a book or two in there as well.

Overloading on accessories is not just a home decor trend, creating over-the-top ear stacks is a piercing trend we look forward to seeing grow throughout 2021. Like maximalist accessorizing for home decor, earring stacks allow you the same type of creativity with your piercings. If you’re looking to add a little more flare to your WFH (or everyday) style, consider creating a bold ear stack.

Wild Wallpaper 

Wallpaper slander will not be tolerated in 2021. The Spruce notes that wallpaper has been making the biggest comeback in recent years and rightfully so. With an endless amount of design options, peel and stick wallpaper is the perfect solution for those who frequently enjoy switching up their aesthetic. Adding wallpaper to your WFH space can create the perfect accent wall or backdrop for those video calls, while providing an element of dimension to the room. Peel and stick wallpaper make a great seasonal decor item because like the seasons, it’s so easy to change. Spoonflower has beautiful eye-catching wallpaper designs that are sure to get you in a springtime mood.

Spring Candle Scents 

You simply can’t have seasonal decor without seasonal candle scents, and you could definitely argue that candles are the most important decor element of any space.  The candle obsession is real and we’re not ashamed. You can always count on candles to provide a sense of coziness that we’re all in need of sometimes. Time to put away your forest wood pine scents and opt for scents that fill your room with a light energizing aroma. Floral Streets Sunshine Bloom candle smells like sunlight and spring while the yellow jar makes it the perfect pop of color to add to your WFH space or any space for that matter.
