Everyone looks forward to the “color trend” announcements, and this year is no different. With the rise of COVID-19 and stay at home orders, home improvement projects have never been so popular. If you’re looking to renovate your kitchen and give it a fresh new look, these popular color trends are for you.
One of the best color trend sources we’ve found is HGTV—over the years, they have become a go-to source for interior design trends. Our personal favorite color trend from their 2021 Trend Forecast is Benjamin Moore’s Aegean Teal. This bright yet sophisticated color adds natural harmony to any room and is the perfect accent for a modern kitchen or bathroom. You can practically feel the freshness of the color! Pair a nice Aegean Teal paint with some floral or leafy accents, and you’ll have a brand-new look and feel to your room.
While white kitchens have risen in popularity the past few years, another one of our personal favorites is Champagne from Shutterstock’s color recommendations for 2021. Champagne is a timeless color that can be paired with just about any accent color— perhaps the best part about this color is it versatility. Champagne can be simple and clean when partnered with rattan or other natural fibers for a more earthy look, or it can be made modern when used in a backsplash or mosaic pattern. Try the Champagne trend with different shades of green, and you’ve got yourself a trendy and timeless kitchen!
Everyone enjoys a good article out of Good Housekeeping—another one of our favorite color trend inspirations. This year, Good Housekeeping is targeting rich browns for one of their trend colors, a crowd favorite for any year!
Rich browns immediately take us to sleek wood and the beautiful grains that grace kitchen tabletops, another timeless trend. If you want to go all-in on the brown trend, use your favorite rich brown for your main cabinet color or as a countertop for your island. Choose from stunning quartz countertops with veins of rich brown or capture the eclectic look with stained concrete countertops. Either way, your kitchen will be an interior design success!
Last but not least to round out our favorite color trends, we have Cellini Gold by Behr, an Italian classic! We are certain that a color that reminds us so much of Italy will never go out of style, but we’ll leave that decision up to you. This gorgeous soft gold adds a little sunshine and warmth to any room, giving off a welcoming feel to any kitchen or dining room. We recommend using it as an accent wall to draw the eye, or perhaps adding the Cellini Gold accent as curtains or an accent rug. Either way, have fun with your taste of Italy and summer!
