Home Color Trends of 2021
There is simply no better way to “spice up” your home than by adding a fresh coat of paint to a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, or living room. If you feel that your home needs a complete revamp, changing the color tones of your entire home interior might also be an idea worth exploring.
The colors and textures of interior walls not only allow homeowners to play with lighting patterns and interior arrangements, but they also play an important role in shaping and determining our moods. Color is widely considered to be a powerful design tool that changes the “psychology” of certain spaces in your home.
Color Is A Mood
A dark palette on your bedroom walls might add a soothing touch of relaxation that can help you unwind after a stressful day. Similarly, brightly colored walls in the kitchen or dining room can add a cheerful vibe in places where families come together for mealtime or where you regularly entertain guests.
The color you choose for your walls can actually influence the spatial sensations within a home. Certain color tones can make a tiny room feel larger, or a spacious room feel tighter and more intimate. Of course, adding a strategically-determined paint color to your walls is an easy way to change the spatial sensations of your home without having to endure the time and expense of the kind of major renovation project where you end up moving this wall over there.
To help you choose the best color for your home interior, below we review the top home color trends of 2021. Though the best color for your home will depend on the design of your home, your own preferences, and other contextual considerations, the top home decor color trends of 2021 are certainly a great way to help you spark your creative side.
The Top 4 Interior Color Trends in 2021
After a rough year of social isolation and stay-at-home mandates, one of the most important home design trends for 2021 is focused on finding ways to reconnect with the people, places, and themes that matter most to you.
Color is obviously a powerful and expressive way to create connection and evoke memory. Perhaps that suggestive Aegean Teal color in your kitchen brings back the sensations of your grandmother's pantry and the hospitality it imbued. Or maybe a deep mauve color in a cozy corner of your den helps you feel a sense of reconnection with the natural world.
Given this importance, some of the top interior color trends of 2021 include:
1. Pantone’s Color of The Year: “Illuminating”
Voted Pantone’s 2021 Color Of The Year, this bright, cheerful yellow is a great addition to kitchens, kitchenettes, and dining rooms. It has the ability, as the name implies, to truly illuminate a room. With people spending much more time in their homes (and kitchens), this color is a great way to add a bit of cheerfulness to the rooms where we spend most of our time.
2. Sherwin Williams’ “Soft Apricot”
For children's rooms, guest bedrooms, or even a home office, Sherwin Williams’ “Soft Apricot” paint color offers a unique, earthy tone that borders on pink with orange undertones. This understated, sandy neutral color not only creates a natural soothing effect, but is also a great way to accent natural lighting patterns.
3. Rich, Organic Brown Hues
Another prevailing color trend for 2021 is the emergence of rich, dark, organic brown hues for intimate and inviting parts of the home. The richness of these earthen hues are a great way to accent outdoors-inspired interior design, and is a natural complement to large windows that open to garden and nature scenes.
4. Seafoam Greens
With natural wood enjoying unheralded popularity for flooring and furniture, seafoam green colors are a great accent color to the varied, natural hues of wood. Bordering on light shades of turquoise, this beautiful color is a great option for shared living areas with lots of natural light.
No matter what colors you choose throughout your home’s interior, the important thing is that your home makes you feel welcome and comfortable.
When building a new house, carefully choosing the best colors for your rooms will go a long way in helping you quickly settle in and feel “at home.”
