Paint and Color Trends for 2021

After being cooped up in your Austin home for almost a year, you might have realized that those woefully dull and dated walls of yours are weeping for a facelift. This new year, why not give your walls the pampering they deserve with a new paint job?

You may not realize it as a homeowner, but interior painting is a vital piece of your home’s maintenance puzzle. We cannot stress the value of a fresh coat of paint enough; not only can it give your living spaces a new lease on life and fill you with new, unexplored energy, but it can also boost the value and curb appeal of your home.

All things said, choosing a new color palette for your home interiors can be a very grueling task, thanks to the overwhelming paint color options out there. To help make your decision easier, we are narrowing your options down to six of the hottest paint colors this year.

Earthy Tones

Earthy tones are having a moment this year, and we are not complaining! An earthy palette includes shades such as cream/ivory, brown, and other subtle, natural tones that can add warmth to any living space. Earthy colors also tie in beautifully with different kinds of décor and design elements in the room. Earth tones are also among Benjamin Moore’s most popular and best-selling interior paint colors.

Moody Aubergine

Rich and moody shades, such as aubergine, make a wonderful backdrop for elaborate prints and plush textures. If you are looking to add a touch of opulence to your home interiors, this deep, maroon-y purple shade is for you!

Bold Saffron

Bright colors like saffron are a great option if you want to bring a splash of sunshine to your home décor. This vivid, yellow-orange shade can offer a pop of color to your living spaces, even if it’s presented as a small detail.

Aesthetic neutrals

When it comes to your interior spaces, you can never go wrong with neutrals. The neutral color palette – which includes beige, ivory, taupe, black, ultimate grey (which is also Pantone Color of The Year 2021), and white –  can give any room a sleek and modern aesthetic.

Pastel Palette 

Transform your home into a calming oasis by going with a pastel color scheme. This soothing and uplifting palette can make your interior spaces look and feel more relaxing and inviting. Millennial pink, soft azure, delicate mint, and whimsy yellow are the hottest pastel shades of this year.

Blue to tackle the blues

The classic, calming shade of blue will never not be in a list of hottest paint colors. This cool color can make you feel like you are looking at the clear blue sky or the content ocean. Plus, it looks modern and goes well with all kinds of interior décor.
