This past year has been one for the history books, with many families having to make adjustments to working from home, virtual learning for children, and sheltering in place for at-risk family members; which for some will continue for the unforeseeable future. According to health experts, this can significantly impact our psyche and mental well-being. If you have spent the majority of the past year indoors, you are probably more than ready for a change of scenery, and what better way to change your surroundings than a fresh coat of paint on your interior walls. Not only will it add value to your home, but a new coat of paint is also the start of a new beginning, providing an atmosphere of healing while bringing out a sense of comfort in your surroundings. After all, there is no place quite like home. L.W. Winslow Painting, Inc outlines the 2021 colors of the year.
Warm Neutral Paint Colors
If you want more than an essential shade of white, consider warm neutrals throughout your space. Warm shades of taupe are incredibly popular with contemporary designs, particularly in kitchens. Choose matte-black hardware on cabinets for a touch of mystery. Inspired by soft sandy beaches, taupe’s with pinkish undertones flatter all complexions making it a natural selection for bathrooms and power rooms. Taupe is an excellent choice to blend with dominant blue, green, gray, and black shades. For dining rooms, opt for a rich, bold red paired with a warm neutral trim to create a dramatic feel to the room. According to design experts, neutrals provide static energy without being overwhelming. Structure your neutrals through the home by connecting your color palettes and blending warm neutrals with cool grays.
Black is a popular design trend for homeowners looking for a clutter-free home decorating approach. For 2021, designers are predicting that black will take a more dominant role in kitchens and bathrooms. Like white, black works exceptionally well with just about every color palette and gives the space a sophisticated vibe. Designers recommend pairing black with white and wood tones for a rustic appearance or accenting with metal, including nickel and brass, for a more contemporary feel. For a more understated vibe, consider a black with a purple base that is rich and luxurious and blends perfectly with a warm neutral or rich chocolate brown tones.
Serene Greens & Calming Blues
Green is trending as one of the top decorating colors, particularly for kitchen cabinetry and living spaces. Shades of green are renowned for their sense of tranquility and calm, but they also encourage a sense of adventure and natural beauty associated with nature. Seafoam and mint green are highly versatile, blending well with stark white cabinets and light blonde wood tones, and smoky shades of gray with black wood accents. Due to their relaxing and serene nature, coastal blues have become a popular choice for bedrooms on walls and in soft furnishings. There are so many blue shades to choose from you can find something for the most discerning eye. Blues blend exceptionally well with white and greens and add a touch of timeless charm to the room. Bathrooms, in particular, look incredible with blue walls and white ceramic fixtures.
