Colors, Seasons, and Schemes
With more than just a rainbow of colors out there, it’s hard to know which ones go with that season. We are going to talk about what colors will be trending for 2021, why, and which season they are appropriate for! We are going to dive deep into the beautiful world of warm, cool, and neutral tones! Our hope is that after reading this blog you will feel more comfortable selecting colors for your home, office, and more!
As spring is almost here, it is natural to touch on this subject first! According to the Pantone Trend Institute’s forecast for Spring/Summer 2021, cerulean (light blue) is set to take center stage. A crisp, baby blue, this shade resembles the clear sky on a summer’s day. Spring colors should be a beautiful celebration of the great outdoors. Along with baby blue, you can expect a range of greens, baby pinks (coral), Navy, and Yellow. These are all timeless colors that can be well incorporated into a springy design.
Next on the list is summer! Summer colors can be chosen based on what comes with it. Flowers, trees, and other outdoor ambiances can be used as direct inspiration. Pale hazy petals combine with exotic pinks and an herbal green to create a fresh summer palette that celebrates the positivity and happiness of colors from nature. The Pantone institute has put together some amazing color combos for 2021, you can check them out Here. Whichever one stands out to you the most is what you should select! Always be sure to stay true to your style.
Once summer fades away, it’s time to talk about warm autumn and fall colors. Cool neutrals are really going to take center stage for 2021. Colors like grey, Navy, and Gold are taking center stage. Grey is one of the most versatile colors, and of course can be used for other seasons but one thing that captivates it for chilly October months is its ability to evoke a strong sense of warmth and cozy. It can be dressed up with throw blankets, and baskets for that perfect reading by the fire room.
Last but not least, let’s talk about winter colors. These colors can be closely associated with the holidays, snow, and dull nature. What are some instant colors that come to mind when we think of winter? Green, red, white, blue, brown, orange, and black. Winter is a much darker time, and colors can be reflected on that. These colors also, again, omit a large sense of warm, cozy, and holiday cheer! Check out the Pantone color examples for more insight here.
No matter the season, color is everywhere and it is beautiful! We just have to decide what styles and colors seem the most fitting for ourselves! Be sure to select ones that go with a theme, genre, or feel you would like to give off. We hope that this helps you on your journey to the perfect colors!!
