3 Home Décor Ideas Inspired by 2021 Fashion Trends

Wondering whether a trend originated from the fashion industry or the home décor realm is a bit like querying whether the chicken or the egg came first. What's the point? Let's just say that fashion and décor go hand-in-hand, constantly feeding off one another. Whenever I start to see a fashion trend skyrocket, I suddenly notice it pop up in homes as well (and vice versa).

For this story, I decided to highlight a trio of trends that will be important in both fashion and home décor for 2021. Why shouldn't your apartment be just as chic as your closet? Scroll down to shop the trends you can buy via hand towels, skirts, mirrors, earrings, candles, sweatshirts, and more—including the number one pattern that definitely surged last year and will continue to grow in 2021.
