2021 Pattern of the Year

2021 Pattern of the Year

While most of us have been stuck at home for the majority of 2020, we are probably starting to get tired of looking at the same four walls. In 2020, home improvement stores saw a huge surge because of everyone being at home. The quarantine forced people to finish the honey-do list they had been avoiding. With that in mind, we encourage you to add some color and some pattern to your home decor. 

Every year we look for Pantone's Color of the Year to guide trends, fashion, and many other industry standards. At Plaid, we are always excited about working with new colors and color schemes. With each year comes a new color palette but also comes a pattern. At the beginning of each year, Apartment Therapy releases a pattern to represent that year. This year the pattern theme is Biophilia.

According to Apartment Therapy, Biophilia translates to “love of life" or “innate tendency to focus on life, which in turn leads to a longing for and affinity with nature." Nature is something that has kept us calm and sane while being cooped up inside. So it is only fitting that 2021's pattern of the year helps us settle ourselves, reset, and get back to nature. For an in-depth look at Apartment Therapy's pattern of the year choice, check out the entire article here:

Nature can be represented in so many ways like in fashion, in home decor, and so much. The love of plants and the life it can bring to a space is what we want to accomplish with the crafts we share with you today.
