2021 Home Design Trends
Predictions by Elizabeth Tanny of E Tanny Design
Elizabeth Tanny is the principal designer and owner of E Tanny Design, LLC, based in Saratoga Springs. They serve the Capital District, Lake George, and New England region.
“My classic design aesthetic in our residential projects stems from my New England roots,” says Tanny. “You will see it represented in coastal-inspired spaces, contemporary rustic, and clean, crisp interiors.”
E Tanny Design provides a full-service approach to design projects, including new construction, remodeling, and interior decorating. Their work has been featured in the Saratoga Showcase of Homes and the Capital District Parade of Homes.
TREND: HOME OFFICES
“Employers have announced that even after the pandemic subsides, many employees will continue to work from home. We’ve been creatively integrating offices into clients’ homes: converting old rooms into new, productive work areas. Repurposing an antique drafting table gave this home office a classic feel and the flexibility to stand and work.”
TREND: MIXING MATERIALS & TEXTURES
“Harmoniously combining reclaimed wood, wicker, wallpaper, soft colors, stone tops, tile, and shiplap make spaces feel like they have their own personality, reflective of the families that live there.”
TREND: MAXIMIZING OUTDOOR SPACE
“Clients are constantly seeking to create outdoor spaces that are comfortable in the varying New York & New England seasons. Screened in porches, comfortable furnishings, and outdoor dining extends the livable space in the home. House plants and views of greenery adds life to interior and exterior spaces.”
TREND: FAMILY-FRIENDLY SPACES
“With more and more families spending time at home, furniture will need to keep up with the increased use. Indoor/Outdoor fabrics add additional stain resistance and durability to upholstery. Rugs made of natural material are known to be more durable than their synthetic counterparts. Furnishing manufacturers are using more sustainable raw materials, lessening the impact our spaces have on the environment.”
