Pantone, one of the biggest references in color trends worldwide, has already reported that the shades of 2021 are gray and yellow. We have even made publications on the subject on our social networks. However, they will not be the only ones to adorn Portuguese houses. The decoration of 2021 is even more connected to well-being and comfort and, both in solid colors and in prints, it seeks to offer even more beauty and sophistication to your life.
Yellow + gray: sobriety with a touch of humor
Every year, the Pantone brand chooses a color to represent the period. And the chosen ones saw a trend in decoration, fashion, advertising, etc. This year, it is no different, but what calls attention is the combination, yellow and gray, already used, including in the decoration.
While yellow is solar, fun and cheerful, gray gives a touch of sobriety, and even, an industrial air to any environment.
Therefore, a good option is to use gray as a base for decoration, on walls and large furniture, and yellow in special points: on a lamp, in the frame of a painting, etc. But this combination does not need to be isolated, prints that contain both colors can also modernize your home.
Wood gains more relevance
Another shade, which is not a specific color, but which is quite prominent in 2021 is wood. The material, used in its most natural form, helps to create interesting compositions even in places where it is little used, such as bathrooms and in the kitchen. Therefore, highlight natural furniture such as wooden tables and chairs.
Bedroom cabinets, too, can be used as decorative objects. Make them stand out with special lighting. And finally, natural wood frames for paintings, mirrors and photographs are a great option to insert the natural texture in a discreet and fun way.
And the prints?
Whoever prefers the fun of printed fabrics will be able to count on the most different options in 2021. In addition to the patterns of plants and foliage, which are still on the rise, the geometric prints return with all their might, however, in more sober tones such as white and black or white and navy blue.
The prints can be used mainly on carpets, on the floors and in the decoration of the rooms, creating an interesting and sophisticated contrast.
Now is to be inspired and color the year 2021.
