The year of 2021 is about looking towards the future (,Pinterest Predicts), self- reflection and internal work.

Internal work means looking online for inspiration and motivation.

But it's not just internal growth, people are looking to change up their environments as well.

Discovering new home decor trends, improving their mindset and spirituality, and trying new things are all ways social media users have been using social media platforms like Pinterest over the past year.

Home - Japandi

Minimalism is in, and so the term "Japandi" was created. Japandi is a mix of Japanese and Scandinavian Design.

Neutral shades, minimal decor, and wooden accents are the key elements. Keep this design in mind if you're thinking about re-branding or for brand photoshoots.
