Trending Interior House Colors for 2021
If you’re among the millions of people who spent more time at home last year than ever before, you’re hardly alone. And if you’re like many homeowners, all that indoor time has you thinking about freshening up your interior décor with new paint. The first step? Choose some new wall colors. But which ones? Home design experts say a trend toward soothing paint colors that began in 2020—a stressful year for so many homeowners—will likely continue into 2021.
Here are some top trending interior house colors to help kick your imagination into high gear:
Blue Skies Ahead
Various shades of blue have long been popular for interior walls. As homeowners move optimistically into 2021, colors that remind them of clear blue skies and sunny days relaxing near the ocean are among top picks for interior house paint.
Heavenly Earth Tones
Is your idea of heaven on earth the feeling you get when you walk in the woods? You’ll be happy to hear that earth tones are very much in vogue for 2021. Included in the Colormix® Color Forecast 2021 for Sherwin-Williams®, for example, are rich hues like Antiquarian Brown, Oakmoss, and Canyon Clay.
Neutrals With a Twist
There’s nothing wrong with opting for a neutral wall color, especially if you like to use your furnishings, pictures, and draperies to inject more dramatic colors into your interior décor. But who says neutral colors have to be boring? Benjamin Moore® offers some intriguing possibilities with a Color Trends 2021 Palette that includes Gray Cashmere, Atrium White, and Foggy Morning beige.
As you start looking at your interior walls and imagining them coated in a glorious new hue, keep in mind that selecting paint colors is a tricky business. Some colors may look luscious and welcoming as the morning sun casts a warm glow across your indoor spaces, only to become washed out when the sunlight reaches its full strength in the afternoon. Moreover, the colors you choose will play a big role in your home’s ambience, whether that’s warm and cozy or sophisticated and less casual.
