Interiors colour trends for 2021 inspire warmer and richer tones with a homely feel
While there appear to be some controversial choices by some of the top paint brands this year for their 2021 colour palettes, it’s true most are focussing on the richer, warmer and more grounding earthy tones, which is perhaps a reflection of what we all need right now after all the uncertainty this year.
Dulux Colour of the Year 2021: Brave Ground
Dulux has revealed Brave Ground as their colour of the year for 2021 – “a warm, natural neutral that’s an enabling and stabilizing colour.” While some have criticised this ‘beige’ tone as dull, Dulux are promoting the versatility of this grounded shade which can be paired with similar soft, natural shades for a relaxed and inviting feel or contrasted with brighter tones for a pop of colour or darker shades of midnight blue or forest green for a richer experience.
Farrow & Ball 2021 Colour Palette
Farrow & Ball’s new colour palette reflects the amount of time we’re all spending in our homes, as a place for rest and recovery, but also for rejuvenation and inspiration. Their warm tones of the rich Preference Red create a cosy sanctuary and can be added to most neutral palettes for a relaxed comforting feel. They have also moved towards warmer hues of nature with their Deep Reddish Brown and Tanner’s Brown to create a ‘chic by day, cosy by night’ feel of grounded luxury. The Farrow & Ball 2021 palette also features uncomplicated, familiar deep blues, natural greens and earth colours that help to “reconnect with the elements of land, clean air and natural light”.
Neptune, Autumn 2020
The new Autumn season colour from Neptune is Olive – a warm, soothing green that works well as an overall colour in dark and cool north-facing rooms or in living and dining rooms that are used most in the evening, where the depth of colour will be highlighted by the low, warm light created by lamps and candles.
Graham & Brown Colour of the Year: Epoch
The launch of “Epoch” is in celebration of Graham & Brown’s 75th anniversary, as a proud, regal and luxuriously bold colour, which can be used in many different ways throughout the home. The rich, deep amethyst can be applied as an accent colour combined with soft neutrals or lavender, or contrasted with rich teals for a “peacock inspired haven”.
Johnstone’s Trend Colours 2021
Johnstone’s Trade Voice of Colour trend colours 2021 are focussed around wellbeing and finding balance as a reflection of consumers craving simple comforts and a slowed down lifestyle this year. The hopeful colours found in the Johnstone’s ‘Be Well’ trend palette aims to create comfort and reflects some of the simple activities we’ve been enjoying such as hiking, baking and gardening, and highlights a trio of colours; Transcend is a “mid-tone oatmeal coloured hue that draws on earthy influences”, Big Cypress is a “shaded ginger with persimmon undertones” and Misty Aqua a “watercolour cerulean blue” that brings an unexpected freshness against the other warm, earthy tones. Their ‘Be True’ palette aims to anchor reality with a mixture of organic and heritage influences with warm, earthy tones combined with rich, jewel box hues. Finally their ‘Be Wild’ palette is about activating optimism with a mood-boosting combination of colours with a celebratory expression of individuality and reclaiming power.
