Like most people, we can’t wait for this year to finally pass. Of course, there is still no guarantee that 2021 will be pandemic-free, but at the moment we seem a little hopeful. But no matter what happens, it’s always nice to look ahead and see what new home trends are on the rise. After all the turmoil in 2020, we look forward to a fresh start and opportunities to add more color to our lives in the New Year. But which wall colors will be trendy next year??
