    What Are The Interior Colour Trends Of 2021

    2021’s Interior colour trends are similar to the interior colour trends of 2020. The major difference is Pantone’s official Colour Of The Year. 

    In 2020, Pantone’s Colour Of The Year was Classic Blue (which reflected the bleak global situation during the pandemic and people’s low moods). In 2021, Pantone announced two colours of the year: Ultimate Gray and Illuminating. These warm, comforting colours have enlightened the interior colour trends of 2021.  

    Interior Colour Trend #4: Light Blues

    Based on research gathered from 68 interior designers, blue is a popular interior colour for personal spaces. This is because bright, light blues (such as Misty Aqua) are optimistic and calming room colours (especially when used as a wall colour - see below).

    Muted ochre, sand, beige, and other neutral earthy interior colours (with yellow undertones) are popular interior colours this year; experts agree that Urbane Bronze is one of the most used interior colours of 2021. Neutrals paired with more saturated colours (such as brown or purple) are also a trendy colour combination.
