Interior design and interior design trends in 2021 for every personality
The big one inside
One of the interior design trends in 2021 is biophilic design (things that mimic nature) and it comes into play with the hand-woven Guatemalan baskets, the canopy of greenery and the endless views in the mansions of Annabelle Hickson, Meredith Hagner and Wyatt Russell, and Emilie Ghilaga. Also consider sissel rugs, knotty pine furniture and a good dose of natural light.

“I started out by pretending I lived in England – you know, with roses and that kind of traditional plant,” says writer and photographer Hickson of his garden. “But I have come to accept that the place where I live is very different from England.” Where she lives – with her husband, Ed, and their three children, Daisy, 12, Tom, 10, and Harriet, 8 – is a climate farm located on a pecan farm in the Dumaresq Valley, on the border between New South Wales and Queensland. A dozen years into her country life after moving from Sydney, Hickson not only embraced stormy weather (“It’s drought then floods”) but in 2020 she launched Galah, a magazine dedicated to rural Australia. “I had kind of a pretty productive lockdown,” she says. In the garden, she has planted large, sweet herbs like miscanthus, while elsewhere branches hewn from a Chinese elm are found above the kitchen table in a lush canopy installation that gives a woody fantasy by the piece. Little Harriet feels right at home. “She thinks everything is completely normal,” Hickson says, “eating your dinner with leaves fallen underfoot.” –L / D
Meredith Hagner and Wyatt Russell, Los Angeles
“People assume all the time: your husband has the van and he drives you,” says Hagner. Russell intervenes: “It’s the opposite – although I wouldn’t call it dragging me either.” She grew up between Houston and Chapel Hill, North Carolina, hiking with her father, including a crossing of the Rockies and four weeks on the Appalachian Trail. He spent a youth mainly outside on the Colorado ranch owned by his parents (Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn). In 2018, the couple, the two actors, bought a Mercedes Sprinter van fitted with a Scandinavian-style blond wood interior and fitted with all the trimmings – stove, dining bench, modular seats and sleeping spaces – for #vanlife. “The holidays have always been a bit difficult because we have to plan at the last minute because of our jobs,” says Russell, who currently stars in the Marvel series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Now they go on month-long hikes at the drop of a hat, spending days driving and nights under the stars in Shasta National Forest or Glacier National Park. “It’s funny because it can sometimes sound so romantic,” says Hagner, “but more often than not you’re in a timed shower in a rest stop, laughing because you don’t have enough time. quarters and the water to stop while your hair is still. covered with soap. The arrival of a baby, however – little Buddy Prine Russell was born shortly after this shoot – requires larger quarters. “I mean, as soon as we can get our new van built, we’ll be on the road with him,” Hagner says. “It will be a whole new series of adventures.” –L / D
