We’re at that time of year when experts and influencers alike start naming their colour trends of 2021. This coming year will have an exciting range from all parts of the colour spectrum: warm creams, deep gem colours, and blue-greens. Read on for our favourite ideas on how to incorporate them into your decor!
Repaint Your Furniture Off-White
White is always a classic, but 2021 is sure to be filled with warmer versions with brown undertones. These earthy whites look great against natural wood hues. Repainting furniture in an off-white distressed look is an easy DIY project for a lazy weekend. Simply coat your furniture with paint, then use sandpaper to scuff areas that would naturally wear, such as corners. You’ll have a boho-chic piece and the benefit is you don’t need to do a particularly careful paint job!
Use Contrasting Gem Colours
When it comes to the colour trends of 2021, pops of deep gem-toned hues are forecast to be big. Living rooms and dens take particularly well to these refined yet statement-making colours. Play colours off each other for the best effect, like pairing deep purple and saffron.
Save Soothing Colours For The Bedroom
On the other end of the spectrum, soothing grey-greens also have a place in your home. Use them in bathrooms or bedrooms, places you reserve for relaxation and self-care. Go for a monochrome look with slight variations in colours to keep things interesting. Surrounding yourself with such a calming colour will surely be appreciated!
Blue-Greens Will Be Everywhere
Whether it’s aquamarine, turquoise, or teal, variants of blue-green will be on trend in 2021. If using bright colours isn’t your thing, try adding pops of aqua in vases or dishes. You’ll be surprised how well this colours pairs with others, such as white, grey, caramel, and dusty pink.
Try A Pale Seafoam
Alternatively, try aqua’s more subtle cousin, a pale seafoam green. This shade is both soothing and classic while standing out for its uniqueness. It works well in bedding, throws, or window treatments.
From bright to refined to soothing, each of the exciting colour trends of 2021 represents a mood that you may want to evoke in your space. With our ideas, it’s easy to incorporate these of the moment hues into your home!
