Each year, color experts at major paint companies like Behr and Sherwin-Williams work together to predict what colors will make a splash in the coming year. In 2020, brighter, bolder hues were the big story. So what do they have planned for 2021?
In 2021, the color trends seem to be more subdued this year, with colors inspired by nature and nostalgia aimed at creating a sense of calm and wellness – which isn’t a surprise considering all the stress the world experienced in 2020.
2021 Color Trends
- "Transcend" - A midtone oatmeal-colored hue that draws on earthy influences and nostalgia. The antidote to an era of cool greys, this cozy neutral emulates the feeling of a warm latte on a cool morning, or warm sand on a sunny summer day.
- "Big Cypress" - A shaded ginger with persimmon undertones, the equivalent of a big, comforting hug for your home.
- "Misty Aqua" - A watercolor cerulean blue, provides an unexpected pairing of freshness against the other warm, earthy tones.
