Key Colors Winter 20-21
Written by Luis Fabián González
As we look forward to 2021, winter is ideal for redecorating things with a new mindset.
Winter is all about harmony, order, and friendly charm. It’s frosty mornings, bright and crisp days, and lovely dark blue nights; winter conveys a feeling ideal for inspiration as shape, form, and color are everywhere. Although in 2020, this statement may be challenging to grasp since this year has continuously challenged us emotionally, the global health pandemic has been in our minds at every moment, making it difficult to have the encouragement to seek inspiration.
Now more than any time, since we spend a lot of time surrounded by four walls, it’s essential to stay in an environment that gives us peace and emotional wellness and creates a safe and cozy haven to retreat.
Looking back at happier, calmer times, neutral brown colors are always soothing as is a color pattern we go back time and time again; they are comforting, adding warmth and depth to a room. They remind us of earth and the natural world reconnecting with the essentials around us. Think snuggling up by a fireplace with a cup of hot chocolate and a blanket. Combine them with shades of greens to create a harmonious organic atmosphere or pair them with rich heritage colors to create a hospitable intensity aura.
Greige (Grey + Beige) is a new versatile color, a neutral that adds a more decadent feel and can work in both cool and warm color schemes. As the outside world tends to get a little cloudy and alarming, having a deep, cozy refuge is ideal. Consider using different tones or shades of the color in crucial living areas to create a truly cohesive feel throughout. You can accessorize and use accent colors to add more interest and character if you prefer or with softer browns, creams, or white to achieve a contemporary and timeless interior.
A constant in winter palettes have always been blue; ever faithful, it injects vibrancy with a confident shade. Blue injects a message of security, a sensation of total confidence, a sky opening us to a world of possibilities. Paired with wood accents, it emits an air of sophistication, or accompanied by white tiles, it elevates any room into a refreshing and stylish bathing space.
Among all colors inspired by nature, the shades of green stand out; it’s perfect to create bright accents and add some character to an interior, and at the same time, it encapsulates our desire to treasure our most human qualities. From a design perspective, green is a perfect combination with warm neutral colors creating a perfect harmony.
