Top Interior Paint Colours in 2021
The interior paint colours we choose for the walls of our home is more than just interior decorating or keeping up with chic styles. The colours in our home reflect the personality of the people inside…they’re a form of expression!
Moreover, the paint you choose needs to set the right mood, work with your furniture, and it has to last.
In this blog, we go over the top interior paint colours in 2021. Focusing on some of Canada’s leading paint manufacturers, including Dulux, Sherwin-Williams, and Benjamin Moore, we’ll help you pick the perfect colour for that space you’ve been wanting to refresh.
Dulux Colour of the Year 2021
When choosing the colour of the year for 2021, Dulux focused on some common themes: Well-being, sustainability, and human connection. The 2021 featured colours are meant to inspire humanity and intention in our interactions with one another.
Transcend, Misty Acqua, and Big Cypress
What Dulux has to say:
These are paint colours intended for the person who wants to fully embrace mindfulness and intention, our first-ever Paint Colour Palette of the Year showcases natural hues that are comforting, compassionate, and optimistic. The colour trio celebrates beauty of all kinds and relates to those who prioritize wellness in mind, body, and spirit. “
Sherwin-Williams Colour of the Year 2021
We can clearly see a theme develop this year with the Sherwin-Williams pick for 2021’s top colour. With the goal of “tapping into nature”, this colour is meant to help bring serenity to your home while providing an unquestionable sophistication to the space it occupies.
What Sherwin-Williams has to say:
“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.”
Benjamin Moore Colour of the Year 2021
Going slightly off-script, Benjamin Moore offers a more lively pick for colour of the year, but continues to provide a sense of comfort that many are longing for in their paint choices.
What Benjamin Moore had to say:
“Take a moment to reflect and reset. Intriguing, balanced, and deeply soothing, the Benjamin Moore Colour of the Year 2021, Aegean Teal 2136-40, creates natural harmony.”
2021 is the year of soft, earthy, and peaceful tones. The nice thing about the selected colours of Canada’s biggest paint brands is that they can work as a uniform colour in your favourite space or as an accent to more neutral whites, greys, and browns.
