Last year, we all spent an unplanned, hideous amount of time at home staring at the same walls and décor. If you’re like us, you’re itching to repaint (and maybe even redecorate!) for a little change of scenery at home. Redecorate your home in true style, starting with some inspiration of colours soon to sweep the scene of 2021.

In 2020, we saw 7 top interior colours:

  • Champagne
  • Navy Blue
  • Golden Yellow
  • Olive Green
  • Dark Red
  • Charcoal
  • Mango

Moving into 2021, we’re predicting that there will only be slight shifts to these trends. Whilst we’ve grown slightly tired of the same interiors this year, we’ve been gaining inspiration from social platforms and had more time to plan our interiors than usual.

Neutrals

A timeless colour for any home, neutral colours including Creams, Whites and Champagne will continue to soar for interior décor. With the brilliant ability to manipulate space, neutral colours make rooms look larger and cosy. It is also a great way to get artwork onto your walls whether they be abstract in colour or similarly neutral.

With neutral walls always being a high trend, this year we’re expecting the colour to be transitioning more into flooring, carpets and curtains.

Grey

Over the last few years, we’ve seen grey becoming a large staple in the home with small additions and trinkets being introduced. This year, we’re expecting this trend to increase, with grey walls, kitchens and sofas trending in both light and dark shades.

A very contemporary colour, the different shades mean walls and furniture can either be a strong and bold feature piece or a subtle addition to highlight your chosen feature. Working in tandem with a range of colour including blues, yellows, neutrals and black across a range of hues.

Yellow

Earlier this year, Pantone announced their colours of the year, grey and yellow. Their idea of the combination is to display messages of strength and hope, and the combination works great!

Now we’re coming out of winter we’re expecting to see a lot more of this combination, mainly yellow furniture, acting as bold feature pieces with blacks, greys, and tans highlighting them.

Blues

Across the spectrum, blue is a calming and soothing colour and this year we’re expecting to see great combinations of blues and neutrals in the home. Studies into colour have shown it to positively affect your health, including calming your mind and reducing anxiety.

Earthy Greens

Greens have often been slightly controversial for interiors, especially bright greens. This year, however, we’re going to be seeing people gravitate towards earthy and familiar greens that provide comfort and familiarity.

These green hues go perfectly with deep navy blues and chocolate forest browns to create familiar and natural surroundings. A great way to compliment these colours is the introduction of fresh or artificial flowers.

Natural Colours

This year, we’re expecting to see people using a lot more natural colours in their home, especially for wooden flooring and tables for interior design. While in the last few years we have seen more contemporary styled tables, this year we’re predicting a rise in natural woods and tones for flooring and other wooden features.


Overall, this year’s colour themes and interiors will focus on familiarity and soothing tones, with people spending more time in their homes, interiors need to be calming and relaxing. Sharp and vibrant tones such as yellow, will act as feature pieces.
