Design Focus: The Color Trends of 2021

Do you love seeing the latest in interior design? You’re not alone! One of our favorite aspects has to be the color trends that evolve and shift over time. Each year, we look forward to the Pantone Color Institute’s announcement of the colors they’ve identified as trending in the upcoming year. This year’s palette includes ten exciting shades, along with five neutrals. And, we have to say, the choices are bursting with personality. Some are surprising, some are enticing, but one thing is for sure: We want to know what to do with them in interior design, right?

Colors Create Character

There’s no better way to give personality to your home than filling it with colors that speak to your individual style. Home design is a great way to surround yourself with what you love–no rules apply when defining your happiness. But, you can use color trends to inform your decisions about what you think looks good together and what might make your home truly yours.

The Beauty of Blue

If you’re a lover of blue, you’ll always be in luck. Blue is a standard in home design. It could be because of the range of choices this color family presents, or because it speaks to such a range of personalities. Whichever the case, there is always at least one blue in the top choices. Last year’s Classic Blue was the winner of Color of the Year, leading us to this year’s palette with two blues to love. Just like in this home office, you can pair blues with almost any shade, or even together, and you’ll have an instant classic. Adding a pop of color–like the pink florals–will bring just the touch of personality you’re needing.

Dining in Style

The gatherings have been small this year, and there’s no telling when that precedent will let up. Keeping your family safe is a top priority, but you might also have realized how quaint it is to enjoy smaller amounts of people. Make the most of your dining space with heightened style and a fresh look. A feature wall is a fun way to do just that.
