This year, interior design is all about making the home bright and sunny to keep spirits up during the aftermath of 2020. The color trends of 2021 already reflect our collective desires to travel, go outside, and work past traumatic events. While it’s still early in the year, learn about the top interior design color trends of 2021 to model your home’s interior with a stylish new color method.
Pops of Bright Color Among Neutrals
Pantone’s colors of 2021 are a bright, sunshiny yellow and a stormy gray to represent hope and strength out of adversity. Naturally, these two colors fit well into any interior design, and have plenty of similar color schemes that are equally trendy. Using neutral colors around the room that bring out the best in bright pieces of furniture or rugs can create the effect of sunshine peeking from behind a wall of clouds.
Make most of the room look plain with cream or white variants. Then, use boldly colored furniture, rugs, and accessories to add beauty and brightness.
Cottagecore and Patterns
One of the largest trends continuing from 2020 is the concept of “cottagecore.” Cottagecore-inspired interior design focuses on the cozy and comfortable—think of grandma’s house levels of comfort. The colors for cottagecore focus on a combination of warm neutrals, woods, and patterned accents.
Add a soft, floral-patterned accent blanket to a pastel sofa and finish with a matching set of pillows. Place a plush, patterned rug underneath your wooden coffee table for the warm cabin feeling. Don’t forget to add patterned drapes to match. Keep a fresh vase of flowers for a touch of the outdoors, and you’re set to go.
The Warmth of the Beach
Since many people were confined to their homes for so long without a vacation, one of the top interior design color trends of 2021 involves all the blues, yellows, and sandy tones of the beach. Create your very own beach house no matter where you are by taking advantage of your home’s natural light. Let the sun stream in through breezy, sheer curtains and brighten up your light blue painted walls. Complete the beach house aesthetic with a light wooden floor and a bright rug—solid or simple patterns both work well with bright coloration.
Once you decide on the perfect design for your home, add to the colorful design with a high-end rug from Koeckritz Rugs. Choose a custom-made rug to fit into any of your unique design ideas and to perfectly fit into the trickiest rooms of your house.
