For those who like to keep up with the latest in interior design, it’s always fun to stay on top of the hottest color trends each year. Of course, that color, or colors, will vary depending on who you ask. Whether you want to repaint the whole house or simply pick up a few accent pieces, here are the official colors of 2021, according to various experts.
Pantone: Ultimate Gray and Illuminating
Pantone decided to throw us all a curveball this year and chose not one, but two, colors. This exciting combination consists of Ultimate Gray, which represents steadiness and resilience, and Illuminating, a vibrant shade of yellow that conveys optimism and energy. Together, they provide the perfect pairing to bring into everyone’s home this year.
Benjamin Moore: Aegean Teal
A natural shade that walks the line between blue and green, Benjamin Moore’s pick of the year offers a soothing presence that can look great in any part of the house. Chosen for its ability to radiate warmth and wellbeing, Aegean Teal has a down-to-earth feel that looks right at home in a rustic, countryside retreat or a sleek, urban abode.
Sherwin Williams: Urbane Bronze
Chosen for its organic appeal, Sherwin Williams’ Urbane Bronze is a dark, gray-brown hue that’s particularly well suited in settings that embrace biophilic design with an abundance of natural light and greenery. This neutral tone is perfect for warming up modern or minimalist living spaces and will look great surrounded by stone and wood finishes.
Behr: Elevated Comfort
Behr was another one to break the mold this year. Rather than selecting a single color, they offered us six different palettes that revolve around the theme of Elevated Comfort. From the restorative greens and blues of the Calm Zone to the soft, gentle hues of Subtle Focus, there’s an appropriate palette for every room in the house.
