Home Decor Colors 2021: Mindfulness and Wellbeing

I am really liking the home decor colors that are trending this year, and when the different paint companies started announcing their colors of the year for 2021, I was very happy to see that they include many hues of my favorite colors blue and green!

Most of the home decor colors for 2021 are so soft and soothing, inspired by mindfulness and wellbeing. One that really stands out from the crowd though is Pantone’s yellow “illuminate”, and while I personally would not paint an entire room in it, I do love it as a bright and cheerful pop of color. I’d happily live in any room painted in the other colors though!

But if you can’t or don’t want to paint an entire room a new color, what do you? Add it with art! Here are some of my favorites this year:

Benjamin Moore Aegean Teal Home Decor Colors 2021: Benjamin Moore Aegean Teal
