Top 3 colors to use this year in your interior design

Colors have always played a significant role in home design. They can make a place look bigger and brighter, as well as influence how we perceive an area, if used correctly. 2021 is definitively a very interesting year for interior designers. The corona virus pandemic had a major influence on the trends.  Since people spent so much more time at home they were compelled to include some natural colors and tones into their life, such as hues of blue, green, and brown. Here are 3 of the trendiest colors in interior design and how to combine them:

The first color you should consider incorporating into your interior design is blue, especially Benjamin Moore’s Aegean teal. Back in October last year, the company chose it as the color of the year 2021 and claimed that it creates natural harmony. This is a fresh, soothing tone of blue, a mix of blue-green and gray, that is said to help calm and balance the mind and emotions, which is particularly important these days, when people spend more time at home than ever before. The Aegean teal is a versatile color that can be used in every part of the house, including the kitchen, living room, and bathroom. Very adaptable, it can be used both as a color for large areas of a home, such as the walls, or to make an accent, for example on the bed in your bedroom or as the color for your doors. Since it is a cool tone, it stands out when combined with warmer tones, as well as natural textures and materials. Pair it with cotton, linen, jute décor, natural wood, and other rustic materials to create a contrast in your interior design.


Green, in all its tones and shades, is another color to pay attention to. It is pleasant and soothing to the eyes and it is used to calm and create a relaxing environment.  Green, just like blue, is a versatile color that can be used as a primary shade or as an accent. For instance, green curtains, carpets, or blankets will stand out in your home and will make it seem calmer, more peaceful, and serene. It is a cool tone, which means that it stands out the best when paired with warm colors such as yellow, pink, orange, and even red.  Natural decorations, plants, and flowers, as well as natural linens and materials, are all perfect for green. In the Celtic mythology, this color is also represented as a symbol of the mutual dependence between men and nature.

Another hue you might consider using in your interior design is yellow, especially in PANTONE’s color of the year, Illuminating.  Yellow is the brightest tone in the color spectrum and it immediately grabs your attention. It is a symbol of happiness, energy, creativity, and hope, all of which are much-needed feelings at this difficult time. When it comes to combining this color with another, it is very important to be careful and avoid exaggerating. Although it goes well with almost every color, be it white, green, blue, pink, or brown, yellow works best as an accent tone. Use it in decorative pillows, small pieces of furniture, kitchen cabinets, or even for a sofa or couch, in a room of neutral colors like gray or white.
