Energy, aura, mood, comfort, inspiration – all this is determined by the colors and shades around us. Year after year, designers and decorators develop new interior palettes that can create a wide variety of atmospheres – from calmness and serenity to an insane surge of vitality. And for those who are not averse to seeing their home in different colors, it’s time to get ready: the color schemes for 2021 have already been determined. It remains only to determine what is closer to you – naturalness untouched by excessive brightness or royal depth and saturation.
Top 6 interior color trends of 2021
For several years now, the Swedish company Behr, a world-renowned exterior and interior paints manufacturer, has been the undisputed trendsetter determining interior design’s current colors. For 2021, the brand’s designers have developed a palette emphasizing home space as the safest and most comfortable environment possible. Given the difficult situation with the coronavirus, they offer a new vision of home – not a transit point between two busy days, but a place where you can work productively, fully relax and enjoy life.
This time, Behr colorists offered twenty-one shades in several color themes, in each of which it is quite possible to find what you need – both relaxation and inspiration, and the feeling of serenity that we need so much today.
Light and warm neutrals captivate with their friendliness and envelop in hospitality and pure comfort. Designers recommend using such tones in the design of entrances, kitchens, and open living spaces. The theme offers a creamy beige, mocha, almond, dusty beige, and a shade of dried ceramics as the absolute favorites.
Subtle, translucent tones create an atmosphere of unshakable mental well-being. You can feel completely safe in such an environment and detach yourself from any problems, worries, and difficulties. Deep chocolate brown, pale almond, light terracotta, and matte golden will solve a similar problem. However, if desired, you can also add pastel greens and blues.
If in 2020 you were a little lacking in brightness, next year will certainly put everything in its place. Cheerful colors are especially great in nurseries, kitchens, and in general, wherever you want to create your own place of power and regularly nourish yourself with energy. Pay attention to saffron, purple, bright blue, and terracotta – thanks to them, you can easily achieve the interior you need.
Behr offers a fantastic symphony of watercolors and rich blues and greens for those who prefer a cool and mysterious palette of an overly friendly neutrality, creating a light and relaxing atmosphere that allows you to rest and put your thoughts in order. According to the designers, such a function should be taken over by the gray-green tone “jojoba”, smoky white, delicate floral blue and denim, as well as green with deep pearl tones and the delightfully bright tone of the Caribbean wave.
Despite the dominance of light and neutral solutions, Behr proposes to pay attention to rich, expressive colors. Care in such a palette allows you to achieve the amazing effect of a peaceful oasis amid crazy everyday life – a place where hardly anything can disturb your peace of mind. All that is needed for this is a deep gray-green, glossy dark gray, dark “midnight” blue, and noble brown.
