The pandemic certainly impacted every aspect of our lives over the last year and a half, right down to our homes. With the amount of time we spent in our houses during this period, people want a space where they can recharge and feel comfortable – more than ever. Relaxation is certainly evident with the color trends we’ve seen in the first half of the year.
We’ve been seeing a lot of warm “peaceful” color hues, from soft pastel tones to serene blues and greys. These types of color palettes create a calm base for your home. At the same time, there is also a trend for brighter color hues to add that much-needed cheerfulness to our lives.
For those who have had enough of their white walls, shades such as taupe remain neutral, while bringing an element of depth into a room. They can energize an area without being overwhelming and are great for common spaces that need a little pick-me-up.
Greens promote a feeling of coziness and relaxation; something we all welcome at the end of any day. We’re seeing more people bring this color palette into their kitchen cabinets, which is a great way to separate yourself from a traditional kitchen design.
It’s no surprise that a color that is often associated with “calming” is one that has stood out this year. One place you can never go wrong with blues? Bathrooms. It contrasts perfectly with the white details that most people have in this room.
