Over the last six months, our homes have become more multifunctional than ever before. Posing as our office, classroom, gym as well as a place for relaxing, unwinding, cooking and enjoying time with our family. DIY and home decorating has seen a huge increase over the past six months, and is likely here to stay. In light of colour launches and talk of trend predictions for 2021, it’s becoming more obvious that we are all looking to put our own stamp on a space as we look to create a home that feels personal, unique and ‘Instagrammable’.
Introducing the colour trends to look out for in 2021…
Benjamin Moore’s much anticipated Colour of the Year and Colour Trends 2021 palette is all about feeling grounded in a time of uncertainty. Aegean Teal 2136-40, comforting and versatile, the blue-green blend invites us to reflect and reset. It is joined by 11 additional, sun baked shades that nourish the spirit and help amplify the messaging of balance and tranquillity. The Colour Trends 2021 palette forms a collection of warm colours that are approachable, liveable, and easy to introduce into a scheme.
Helen Shaw, Benjamin Moore UK Director, says: “This year’s Colour of the Year is a balanced and soothing hue, softened with a touch of grey to create spaces with a casual elegance. The Colour Trend palette of earthy tones and rich neutrals radiate wellbeing and emotion, our homes are a space of flexibility and multifunctionality, and this palette correlates to that. These are colours that make your home feel even more like home, so settle in and connect.”
Dulux announced Brave Ground as its Colour of the Year 2021, the colour is said to connect us to nature and the simple things. Warm and earthy, the hue provides a firm foundation for change and creativity in the home. Graham & Brown on the other hand has launched Epoch, which is regal, proud, and luxuriously bold. We’re encouraged to be playful and daring with our colour choices in the home and Epoch is offering up some serious wow factor for the home!
We look forward to seeing what Pantone have in store for us…
Now here’s to 2021, a year full of colour.
