2021 Interior Paint Trends

April 30, 2021 3 min read


As we close out 2020, you may be thinking about your goals for the new year. As much as we all want to move past the chaos of the past year, it has allowed many of us to invest in our homes and transform them into the ideal space to live, work, and play. We’ve rediscovered our passion for old hobbies, including creating a beautiful home to call our own. With 2021 on the horizon, it’s a wonderful time to take on a painting project and get the fresh start you’ve been looking for. We have compiled a list of the hottest 2021 interior paint trends and color schemes to keep on your radar as the new year approaches.

Vibrant Shades

In 2021, we will likely see a resurgence of rich and saturated colors that bring life to any room. From jewel tones to earthy shades, these colors will brighten your interior space. Vibrancy paired with a mix of muted colors makes for the perfect balance – creating an energizing yet cozy environment.

Jewel Tones

Jewel tones, such as ruby, sapphire, and emerald, are the perfect colors to satisfy our need for feel-good happiness after a long year of unprecedented events. In 2021, bold, refreshing, and reinvigorating tones will become more prevalent than ever before.

Notes from Nature

Over the course of this past year, we’ve gained an newfound appreciation for nature which translates beautifully into the look and feel of your home. In 2021, homeowners will gravitate towards warm, rich colors, including rich browns, mossy greens, and deep blues, that provide a sense of security and comfort.

Pastel Hues

Pastel hues, specifically yellows and blues, provide a sophisticated and antique-looking feel to your home. Muted yellows can act as a neutral or an accent when combined with more intense blue shades. You may consider adding hints of greenery to tie the space together.

Neutral Walls with a Pop of Color

Many popular paint brands are highlighting their picks for 2021 color trends, and neutrals seem to be making a comeback this upcoming season. For example, taupe and warm whites give your home a simple and elegant look. These shades act as the perfect backdrop for modern pops of artwork and bold color.

Benjamin Moore 2021 Color of the Year

In early October, Benjamin Moore announced their 2021 Color of The Year. Aegean Teal is an adaptable blue-green shade which offers a soothing and uplifting feel. When Benjamin Moore came up with this color, they were inspired by the kitchen and how people were spending much more time in their homes. Aegean Teal is matched by 11 other shades to make up the official 2021 palette. Check out our selection of Benjamin Moore paint at Ricciardi Brothers.
