Leave 2020 Behind with Refreshing Paint Colors for 2021
We are fast approaching a new year with the vast majority of Americans likely feeling like 2021 can’t come soon enough. With a global pandemic and widespread political unrest, 2020 has proven dispiriting, at best. A new year tends to offer a sense of potential renewal, and with a COVID-19 vaccine about to come into play and a change in governance, many Americans are starting to feel a bit more optimistic that things will get better in 2021.
A new coat of paint also offers renewal and paint manufacturing companies have released their predictions about which interior paint colors will prove most popular in 2021. In making their predictions the companies are highlighting the need to recover from the turmoil of 2020 and suggesting paint colors that sooth, relax, and bring balance to the world. Just consider how the companies are introducing their popular interior paint colors for 2021:
“Nature at its simplest and most elemental…forges a feeling that’s grounded, meditative and serene.” —Sherwin-Williams
“Take a moment to reflect and reset. Intriguing, balanced, and deeply soothing, the Benjamin Moore Color of the Year 2021 creates natural harmony.” —Benjamin Moore
“As we enter a new era of the built environment, we invite you to discover the transformative spirit of color. The colors curated in this palette ushers in more of what the world needs right now: Elevated Comfort.” —Behr
We here at FCI Painting agree that renewal is needed in 2021 and assume that our Naples, Florida-area clients will be eager for a reset, too. A fresh coat of new paint can help with the personal renewal of your home or business, so we recommend starting the process by considering these popular interior paint picks for 2021 first. After all, picking paint colors is often a struggle, what with the immense number of paint color choices to choose from. But by checking out the popular “2021 colors of the year” first, you can quickly figure out what you like and what you don’t like, and from there pursue the right color for your interior paint job accordingly.
Without further ado, here are the “2021 Colors of the Year,” as promoted by three major paint producers.
Sherwin-Williams—“Urbane Bronze” SW 7048 (245-C7)
Sherwin-Williams says that its 2021 color of the year is “rooted in nature” to “create a feeling of calm and bring all you cherish together.” As a “pure, minimalistic expression of nature,” Urbane Bronze is a “refreshing alternative and complement to gray,” according to the company. The hue should work especially well with metals, pale woods, rich leathers, and natural stone tones. It will also add to the glimmer of polished silver and brass and provide an intriguing contrast with Carrara marble or other pale-tone stonework.
Benjamin Moore—“Aegean Teal” 2136-40
Benjamin Moore believes the sunbaked hue of its Paint of the Year 2021, Aegean Teal, radiates warmth and wellbeing that will meld well with all of the comforts of home, from rumpled linen sheets to perfectly ripened fruit. Along with its color of the year, Benjamin Moore is promoting 11 other hues in its “Color Trends 2021 Palette” that will also make one’s home “feel even more like home.”
Behr—Color Trends 2021
Behr is not content to suggest just one popular color for 2021, but instead offers 21 suggested colors in its Color Trends 2021 Palette that will “enhance the experience of any setting.” Among the hues that captured our attention were Kalahari Sunset MQ1-25, Saffron Strands PPU6-02, Caribe PPU13-01, and Royal Orchard PPU11-01.
