Interior Color Trends for 2021

By Arana Craftsman Painters

While some might be thinking that we are jumping the gun a little, others feel the same way, 2020 can be over.  There isn't a guarantee that a new year means the place gets back to normal, however, there is hope.  While many of us spent most of our time at home in 2020, we probably have noticed that our interiors are getting a little outdated.  Perhaps you need to freshen up the paint a little.  If we are going to be spending more time at home, then shouldn't we be enjoying it?  Let's make the inside of your home beautiful.  Warm calming pastels along with cheerful and bright colors.  After all, we could all use a little cheer after this year!

2020 wasn't all bad, well, it was mostly, but think about the hobbies that you picked back up.  Or the extra time you got to spend with your family, the good times.  Many of us got to get back to nature and enjoy the outdoors more, since, well, that was pretty much the only place we were allowed to go.  During this time vacations were canceled and many of us started investing in the beauty of our own homes.  We were busy creating beautiful art for the walls and designing that new garden.

As 2021 rolls in, many fashion designers are thinking that the colors for the year are going to be back to nature with a pop of bright.  Let's take a look at what we mean by that.

The colors of 2021

Brave Ground is a dulux color that some of the design experts have chosen as one of the more popular colors of 2021.  This warm and earthy tone brings in nature to the interior.  It provides a firm foundation for creativity and change.  The color represents growth, stability, and potential. This color can be easily combined with other colors in all kinds of ways.

This color palette offers a sense of comfort and familiarity.   These color choices offer a reset, retreat, and nourish.  While holding onto a sense of nostalgia, this color palette offers rejuvenating and aesthetic pleasing hues. As life in 2020 may seem a little slower, we like to think that these colors can be a way to bring in the cheer.  

The rest palette is a palette that is a little more upbeat.  This is sure to bring some cheer into your home.  Why not brighten your tone and outlook with some of these bolder tones.  While this palette is of brighter tones, it also has a sense of the 70s.  This nostalgic look is something that seems to be getting more popular in recent years.  

The palette Nourish demands attention and offers a send of unplugging and being in the present moment.  This palette is said to offer some rejuvenation of your soul.  While it does lean to the more nurturing side, the colors of this palette are warm earth tones such as browns, greens, and yellows.  This is an excellent palette choice if you need a sense of warmth and acceptance.  It offers a sense of softness that allows your furniture and home decor to meld.  Admire your tranquil surroundings with the Nourish palette.
