Behr, Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams pick their color trends for the new year. 2021 is a New Year with new hopes for gathering and sharing with friends and loved ones. Theres a new dawn in the horizon and these 3 companies have come up with ways to freshen your home in a brand new way. They say paint is the least expensive way of giving your room a new look and feel. Here are some of the top picks from our friends at Behr, Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams.
Behr has named Canyon Dusk, an earthy terracotta shade that is among the hues in Behr’s Color Trends 2021 palette, as its color of the year.
Evoking the desert landscape, this neutral has an earthy appeal that also delivers what people want this year, Behr said: elevated comfort and a grounding warmth.
“There is something so reassuring about dusk, the moment just after sunset, which brings the promise of a new day,” says Erika Woelfel, vice president of color and creative services at Behr. “The illuminating, free-spirited Canyon Dusk is a color that can be found in a variety of places, from an awe-inspiring desert landscape to the color of sunbaked clay. Wherever it is found, we share a collective need for these moments of comfort and inspiration in the days ahead.”
The hue can be paired with jewel tones or pastels, making it a natural fit for modern, casual and traditional styles, Behr says. Other hues from the Color Trends 2021 palette that work well with Canyon Dusk include the soft Smoky White BWC-13 and the dramatic black of Broadway PPU18-20.
“From seasoned DIYers to first time painters, it’s been inspiring to see people really embracing opportunities to enhance their spaces during this time when we are all in our homes more than ever before,” says Jodi Allen, global chief marketing officer for Behr. “Whether creating an unexpected accent wall or a simple color change, paint can make a huge visual impact, and it’s one of the most affordable and straightforward DIY projects to tackle.”
Intriguing, balanced, and deeply soothing, the Benjamin Moore Color of the Year 2021, Aegean Teal 2136-40, creates natural harmony.
When paint companies and design pros place their annual color of the year predictions, these hues are bound to influence home decor trends for months to come. Today, the Benjamin Moore Color of the Year 2021 was revealed—Aegean Teal 2136-40—and like magic, the color will soon start to appear in homes across the country. A rich blend of blue-green and gray, this midtone reflects balance and natural harmony. A natural hue that’s deep and comforting, Aegean Teal is the perfect color for nesting!
“Aegean Teal 2136-40 and the corresponding Colour Trends 2021 palette express a welcoming, lived-in quality that celebrates the connections and real moments that take place within the home,” says Andrea Magno, the director of color marketing and development at Benjamin Moore, in the press release. The balanced hue is intended to bring stability during an uncertain time.
This year, as many of us spend more time at home during the pandemic, you may be eager for easy ways to refresh your space. Hint: consider the Benjamin Moore Color of the Year 2021 all the inspiration you’ll need. Grab a paintbrush, because this hue would look incredible in a kitchen. Brush this color on the cabinets, or paint it on the walls—it looks especially rich when paired with white cabinets for contrast. As our kitchens have recently become not just cook spaces, but also home offices, remote learning zones, and even family board game areas, this versatile hue works for all these varied function.
Celebrate the simple pleasures—think the faded rumple of linen sheets in the morning and perfectly ripened fruits on the windowsill. The twelve hues in the palette radiate warmth and wellbeing. These are colors that make your home feel even more like home. Settle in.
Sherwin Williams captures that simple sophistication every space is looking for in their 2021 Urbane Bronze.
Tap into nature with a hue whose warmth and comfort breathe down-to-earth tranquility.
Now more than ever, our homes have become the backdrop to our lives, reminding us that the moments worth cherishing have always been right in front of us. As we’re looking to create the ultimate retreat for reflection and renewal, we’re turning to a hue whose natural simplicity and nature-inspired energy cultivate a sense of calm from the ground up.
The trend for biophilia continues to shape our spaces, proving that nature is never far away. Urban Bronze might be a color rooted in nature, but it also has a unique ability to ground a room through organic appeal. Whether its accentuating window trims or accent walls, this warm hue draws from nature for a feeling of relaxation and serenity. It also works well with other biophilic elements including, light-filled spaces and foliage.
Thank you Behr, Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams for taping into the hearts of your customer and bringing to life what we can use in our everyday lives to bring about joy, peace and comfort.
