For anyone who has been stuck inside the same four walls during lockdown, now is a great time to give your spruce up your home and give it a breath of fresh air – even if it’s just a lick of paint or a splash of colour with new furnishings and décor. This season’s trends, perhaps unsurprisingly, revolve around bringing the outdoors in – something which we have missed so much of this year.

Here are five great ideas from new Aussie online retail site Sawce.com.au to spruce up your home.

It’s only natural Part 1: If there’s one thing Aussies love it’s the great outdoors and this year, we are bringing it inside. Designers all say natural fibres such as wicker and rattan will be big this year – from wicker dining or lounge room settings to simple enhancements such as rattan bedheads, wall hangings or baskets.


It’s only natural Part 2: Getting back to nature also extends to plants – real ones in lovely wicker baskets, or representations of plants in fabrics such as cushions, curtains and lampshades or on our walls in art, decals or wallpaper.

It’s only natural Part 3 (are you sensing a theme here?): While we’re bringing the outdoors inside, don’t forget colours – we’re going green! Earthy, herbal green hues such as sage or deep/blue green ocean tones will be very popular on walls and in furnishings.


O is for optimism: Orange is energetic and warm, it represents confidence, joy and enthusiasm and radiates happiness. No wonder we will be wanting it in our homes post-pandemic. Whether it’s splashed on your walls or just a pop of colour in your décor, orange will help lift your mood.



Spin Me Round: Just as many of us got a bit softer around the edges during lockdown, so too will our furnishings – and not just furniture. Think end tables, lamps, vases or large mirrors to add a more rounded look and soften the otherwise clean lines of our rooms and furniture.
