As we enter the summer of 2021, we only realize how we missed all the seasons in 2020. The pandemic had us all cozied up in our air-conditioned rooms and how we craved to go out! This year too, we should be aware of the coronavirus and one bright way to do it should be to revamp our houses. 

Home decor in 2021 has been all about oozing comfort and delight. We want a sense of serenity and elegance, but with a touch of warmth. Soft pastel hues like beige, blues, and greys are apt for a calm foundation. Nonetheless, we cannot leave out the bright, cheerful yellows and reds. It’s all about creating a wholesome balance among the four walls. Check out the following Home Decor colors for home decor that have created quite a buzz this year.

  1. Grey and Yellow

The Times of India picked the dull, soothing grey and bright, illuminating yellow as their colors of the year 2021. Grey as the color of concrete, gives a sense of grounding and stability. It becomes a somber background that enhances the appeal of other objects in the room. You can use textures and patterns to play with this color. A yellow sofa in front of a grey canvas gives off a sense of warmness. Even small furniture pieces in yellow can be wonderfully highlighted because of a grey background. Use the color combination in spaces like your living room or dining room to give an elegant sense of aesthetic.
