The Home Design Colours of 2021

Updated: Jan 10, 2022

Did you know that painting a property is one of the most cost-effective ways to increase your returns on real estate investments?

Painting the inside of your home raises your return on investment rate by 107% and 55% for the outside. Plus, the colours you choose for home design can say a lot about you, really setting the vibe.

Do you want your kitchen to be warm and inviting? Do you want your study to brim with serenity? Colour brings out the best in your home. If you are looking for ways to renovate your real estate for 2021, painting is the most cost-effective and eye-popping way to do so.

After a tumultuous year, the home design colours of 2021 have been chosen to soothe the mind. This year is all about hope and tranquillity. From your living room to the outside of your house, the colours of 2021 are here to inspire a new frame of mind. And, as a bonus: learning the home design colour trends of this year puts you one step closer to selling your property.

Calming Colours

Calming colours are more popular this year (for obvious reasons). There is a simplicity in calm colours that’s reflected in everything we do. Our phones and computers are sleeker than ever, and our work and home lives are starting to mesh. With our lives becoming appearing simpler, it’s no wonder our choice in colours would follow suit.

According to Pantone, one of the leading companies in colour-based products, the design colours for 2021 are PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray and PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating .

While the first colour is an intellectual light gray, Illuminating is a bright and vibrant yellow. The colour duo work in conjunction to not only brighten your home but also introduce serenity into your lives. Combining the colours represents stable happiness.

As work from home becomes more familiar to people worldwide, colours make it easier to look at a computer screen for 8 hours a day and still feel innovative. Not only will these colours help you through your 100th video meeting, but they also cut back on the monotony of staring at the same screen every day.

Back to Nature

Becoming one with nature is a mantra for 2021 because nature is as simple as you can get. More natural colours provide us with peace and tranquillity, distracting us from the hustle and bustle of city architecture. As we hurriedly set a more relaxing tone for 2021, nature is here to help!

When you think of nature, there is one colour that immediately emerges in your mind: green. As with any natural colour, green is looking to make a comeback this year. Various shades and hues harken back to nature. Embracing nature in your home design provides a calming effect, whether in your living room, bedroom, or bathroom.

Another calming and tranquil colour is blue. Like green, blue is a calming colour reminiscent of a natural element in nature: water. Whether you are staring out at sea, a pond, or a stream, the colour’s simplicity distracts from the chaos generated from our everyday lives.

These and many more natural colours provide a calm over any room. Even when it comes to the various seasons, you can’t go wrong with the orange of autumn leaves or a crisp apple red. What better way to bring nature into your home (without the bugs and pests) than with a fresh coat of paint?

Just Look at the Hue

When considering home design, colour doesn’t have to be a solo act. Pairing contrasting colours together can electrify a room with positivity and charm! Matching bright colours with various light hues makes whatever you are designing “pop” and keeps with our theme of calm.

Contrasting colours are a good look for 2021. A more neutral colour with something bright, such as green and lime, can channel energy into a room. Your eyes will go on a journey, travelling from vibrant colours to something more comfortable to view.
