For starters, we can prepare to see bold wall colors make their way to the forefront, due to their ability to create a conscious connection between people and their favorite establishments. That bold yellow hue you’re eyeing for your bedroom walls? Go for it now, and you’ll be ahead of the game. The second way nostalgia is predicted to show up in 2021 is in the form of comfort-centered, traditional styles that are reminiscent of Monica’s apartment on Friends, Modsy reports.
