Our homes are our sanctuaries. They are the place where we relax, spend time with our family and friends, and most importantly, they are a place we feel safe and comfortable.
This is why we put so much time and energy into decorating our homes and choosing the perfect interiors and furniture.
And as we are spending more time at home right now, it’s never been more important to create a space that you love.
So if the time has come for you to give your rooms a bit of TLC, we’re here to inspire you. Below, we’ve pulled together a list of six paint colour trends that you need to know this year.
Bringing the colour of nature indoors not only looks great, but it can brighten up the room and work wonders for boosting your mood.
And this year, green is the new grey when it comes to painting your home and filling it with beautiful interiors.
Most notably, lush green tones and velvety dark greens can create the feeling of serenity and calm. They help to bring elements of the outdoors inside and can breathe new life into your home.
What’s more, olive green can be paired nicely with soft greys thanks to its grey undertones. This tonal palette is perfect for rooms that overlook nature, as this can really enhance the hues and create a relaxing ambience in your room.
Embrace neutral tones
Although grey tones might have been all the rage last year, these colder colours are being replaced with more milky, almond tones in 2021.
These neutral colours can help to create a cosy space, something which people really find comforting given what’s going on in the world right now and the fact that our homes have become our safe-havens.
Not only this, but beige backgrounds and warmer shades go a long way to creating a soft and warming environment. Plus, these colours make the perfect backdrop for trendy darker hues, bold splashes of colour or statement pieces of furniture.
Connect with the earth
In keeping with the natural theme that seems to have sprung up in 2021, grounded tones are also hugely popular this year. This is because earthy tones can create the feeling of a safe space and a point of consistency in an ever-changing world.
Interestingly, experts say that these more earthy brown tones can help people to draw upon the strength of nature and find courage. These colours are also restful and can reduce feelings of anxiety.
That said, brown shades can also be ideal for creating a chic and contemporary style in your home as the colour scheme lends itself to luxury interiors such as darker wooden furniture or leather.
Float away with shades of blue
At the risk of sounding like a broken record, another popular colour this year is blue - a calming colour that pays homage to the natural world. This shade has always been recognised as one that promotes serenity and a soothing atmosphere.
Think calm seas and blue skies.
But as well as calming blue shades, you should also consider deeper blues such as marine or pitch blue. These less complicated tones are used to anchor us to our homes and can be extremely comforting, not to mention beautiful.
Warm up with reds
As comfort and familiarity are the big themes this year, many are craving warmer tones that create a cocooning effect. Warming reds and mulberry tones can look very chic throughout the day and then come night; they create a cosy, welcoming environment.
What’s more, striking tones such as chocolates or cherry reds can make for restful, healthier and generally happier spaces. You don’t have to go all out and cover the whole house in these darker tones, but they certainly make for beautiful interiors and feature walls.
Express yourself with bolder colours
Finally, while many paint trends are leaning towards more calming and relaxing tones, there will always be those who want to express themselves and stand out.
And in 2021, this means adding some brave accents that add a punch of personality to your rooms. Some of the most popular hues are deep yellows, burnt oranges, terracottas and even deep greens or blues shades like teal.
Adding a splash of these bolder colours to the walls means you can pair them with beautiful bold interiors, furniture and accessories.
