Following a particularly unusual year, which has seen consumers spend more time in their homes than ever before, experts are predicting that 2021 colour trends will reflect the need for our living spaces to accommodate life in the new normal. With work from home considered the norm, consumers are looking to create spaces that offer dual-functionality, with homes that carry them from work to play.

The latest from Natasha Bradley of Lick interiors of London

'...beiges and greiges are predicted to take the spotlight in 2021.'

As we struggle to find a line between work and home, beiges and greiges are predicted to take the spotlight in 2021. The easy-going colours are simple to style and offer the perfect backdrop for a home office, offering focus and calm as well as warmth and comfort perfect for helping consumers transfer between work and play seamlessly. 


Natasha Bradley Lick’s colour and interiors expert says:


'Since lockdown, I’ve been working from an earthier pallet, carefully curating multi-functional spaces that suit my clients' needs to cater to both work and play.'

The pandemic has impacted many interior trends, shifting away from open plan spaces and encouraging consumers to create purposefully designed ‘hubs’ that can offer the privacy and focus needed for work / schooling with breakout areas that provide much needed separation and relaxation. Colours which easily transcend mindsets, like beiges and greiges, are perfect for tying these spaces into one another, enabling you to still achieve an open feel, while creating designated spaces to get the whole family from morning to evening. 

Colours and decor which offer feelings of nature and help to bring the outside in are also predicted to be a big trend in 2021, with earthy pinks and greens expected to grow in popularity, especially with those decorating kitchens and living rooms. Feature plants have been enjoying their moment for sometime now, thanks to their purifying qualities and representation of health & wellbeing, but this green fingered trend is now anticipated to be reflected in our wallpaper choices as botanical papers peak consumer interest in 2021 - ideal for those who struggle to keep their ‘actual’ plants alive.
