Soft and natural looking and feeling fabrics like Velvet, Boucle’, Mohair, Wool, Linen, Faux Fur, etc. are all going to get more attention in 2021. We personally are in love with the Alpaca Throw from Avocado, every bedroom needs one.

Making your home as functional as possible allows you to use your space in all the many ways you need it to work for you. If you are limited on space, then bedrooms may also need to serve as work spaces as well as sleeping spaces.

While we typically recommend keeping work out of the bedroom, sometimes we have to make adjustments as life throws curveballs. Multifunctional furniture and spaces in the home are predicted to become more popular as people continue to work and learn from home.
