The following is a contributed post from Behr.
This year, our relationship to the built environment was redefined. Our homes have become temporary classrooms, offices, gyms, and restaurants, and we are now starting to imagine safe and comfortable ways to re-engage with public spaces. It is a time of much change and also an opportunity for innovation.
Caring for our space can take on many different meanings. In 2020 into 2021, it is important to make the environments we inhabit as personalized and comfortable as possible. When it comes to interiors, color is playing an ever more important role in setting the mood, creating a peaceful atmosphere and providing a sense of well-being. Behr Paint Company understands the needs of these new times and has thoughtfully curated new color lines to energize and inspire these environments.
Enter the BEHR® Color Trends 2021 Palette: a spectrum of 21 shades spanning from essential neutrals to lavish bolds, enabling both do-it-yourselfers and designers alike to create a much-needed sense of “Elevated Comfort.” Energizing, comforting, engaging and versatile, the Behr Color Trends 2021 Palette is organized into four color themes:
- Mindful Escape – A quiet play of soft neutral tones like Almond Wisp PPU5-12, Smoky White BWC-13 and Canyon Dusk S210-4, influenced by clean modern lines, casual textiles and traditional Japanese design motifs.
- Curated Clarity – Pastels are reinvented in subtle yellow, blue and green tones like Cellini Gold HDC-CL-18, Seaside Villa S190-1 and Dayflower MQ3-54, providing a calm and balanced backdrop for any type of space calling for a serene environment.
- Optimistic Glam – Energize the interior of workplace or retail settings with an eclectic vibe borrowed from rich Mediterranean colors and retro 70s glam including Euphoric Magenta M110-7, Saffron Strands PPU6-02, Caribe PPU13-1 and Kalahari Sunset MQ1-25.
- Dramatic Revival – A “new-stalgic” mix of vintage and modern elements make a bold statement in any commercial space by using deep, opulent colors like Royal Orchard PPU11-1, Broadway PPU18-20 and Nocturne Blue HDC-CL-28, along with lavish materials and shapes.
Each theme evokes positivity in a variety of design styles, and each color was chosen for how it complements other colors—you can mix and match colors from each of the themes to suit any design aesthetic. Whether it’s for returning students in a classroom, welcoming colleagues back into the office, inviting guests into an updated retail or hotel experience or offering residents a safe retreat in a multifamily community, these colors can help create environments that offer sophisticated design that reflects optimism and clarity.
