Home colour trends for 2021…

A warm and comforting colour palate comes in for home colour trends in 2021. We’ll definitely see more earthy tones and neutrals like warm taupe, beige, sand, browns, rust, wine, golden yellows, along with elements that are inspired by nature, botanical greens, sage and sky blues. Neutrals are softer undertones of white and can be the mainstay of walls and furniture still allowing you to add on trend statement-pieces, art and colour to define your own flair and personality. 

Dark blue as the new black which proved popular in 2020, continues to take center stage creating elegant and contemporary spaces throughout the home especially kitchen design.  From Scandinavian inspirations… light woods will be on trend used not only for flooring but also for covering walls and ceilings.  Bolder colour choices are still popular for smaller spaces like bathrooms, laundry, media and dining areas.

We eagerly awaited Pantones’ 2021 colour of the year announced in December 2020, which is jointly Ultimate Grey and Illuminating Yellow bringing fun and sophistication to the home… early selections from the Pantone Spring/Summer 2021 palate are also fun-filled with Marigold, Cerulean blue, Rust, Illuminating yellow, and buttercream.  According to other paint industry experts bold blues, muddy greens, muted reds, bright pinks, and warm whites will soon be showing up everywhere.
