2021.. Boy, I bet we all can not wait for it to get here! So let’s start off the year right by enjoying these 2021 home decor color trends that will be perfect for all your home decor crochet projects.

One of the foremost color palette trendsetters is Behr. They are well known for their beautiful and innovative color palettes. However, they are not the only company to put out home decor color trends. PPG, paint giant Sherwin-Williams and Pantone are some of the biggest names in Color. They all are known around the globe for their color systems for design and print. So I’ve gone through a bunch of predictions from around the web and focused them down to these 6 color ranges. Hopefully to inspire all your home decor projects and brighten your sanctuary.

Comfort Comfort Comfort. That is what 2021 is about. I mean if there’s anything we could use right now in this day and age is some comfort. So below, you can check out these comforting colors that evoke familiarity and nurturing feelings, yet with some fun vibrant pops of retro 70s for a hint of nostalgia. So what do you do to evoke that warm protected nurturing feeling? Fill your house with the right color!

Three warm colors

Yes, I said Beige! Buttercream beige is a classic neutral, that is versatile and all around agreeable. It’s most notably  associated with a calming feel, encouraging us to relax and unplug while evoking that classic familiarity. Beige does not have to be a color that you are afraid of or that you find tacky, instead try pairing it with other neutrals(including other shades of beige), or deep rich contrasting colors such as Navy or Rust, creating that nurturing feeling we all kinda want this year.

tera cotta

Terra cotta is probably mostly associated with the autumn palettes, but these earthy tones and rich shades are perfect for creating warm and motivating interior projects. Terra cotta or Rust signifies bold optimistic vibes guaranteed to inspire creation! And don’t forget to think about saturation when it comes to colors. Saturate terra cotta down and you end up with caramel and cream shades.

Plum has been one of my favorite colors for a very long time. It is even the main color in my designer logo. I was very excited to see plum on so many lists. With its various shades and hues it is known to create feelings of harmony, passion, and spirituality. Plum will bring an abundance of effortless sophistication to any interior crochet project in any room of your house!

Onward to Olive, another beautiful neutral color. Somehow it is simultaneously stimulating, soothing, and serene. Olive is also associated with compassion and harmony and can bring a nice retro feel to your projects.  I don’t see a lot of Olive in crochet projects and that’s something that needs to change! Try Olive on your walls, in an outdoor project, or in your home office, you will not be disappointed!

In the last 10 years or so, I have grown more and more in love with Teal. It’s about time everyone else falls for this unique color and you can see its popularity rising all over the place! You would be surprised how man shades of teal there are out there, Light Teal blue to Deep Teal Green with everything in between. Don’t be afraid of so many choices, you really can’t go wrong. Teal can encourage calm, rejuvenation, and enlightenment, conjuring thoughts of the tropics, oceans, and warm sunny vacations that we all are so desperate for.

midnight blue

Finally, we have midnight blue, the deepest darkest shade of blue, inspired by the night sky. Midnight Blue is often associated with elegance, authority, and stability which can trigger those feelings of being in control. It also balances the neutrals very well creating even more elegance. You want to spice up a project, swap out black or even dark blue, for midnight blue! I personally haven’t used this shade enough in my life or my projects, but that is sure to change.

As always I hope you found some inspiration and maybe some love for a color you didn’t notice before!
