Set the Stage for 2021 with a New Paint Color!

One of the most exciting elements of moving into a new home is the ability to start with a blank canvas.

Choosing paint colors for your home is more than just than a check off your to-do list. Painting protects your walls from wear & tear, improves the value of your home, and most importantly helps create a mood — an expectation for the day. And because of the immense challenges and changes from this past year, design experts predict that the colors of 2021 will be nurturing and soothing.

Below we showcase a few of our gorgeous model homes, which feature the top five color trends we expect to see take over 2021.


Warm Neutrals and Earthy Shades

These shades invoke an inviting and comfortable feeling – perfect for open living areas such as the kitchen or family room.

Obviously, the 2021 color palette offers a lot of flexibility, allowing you to find the color scheme that speaks to you. Some trends stand out — saturated colors (violet, dark green, complex terracotta and berry shades) and earthy tones such as dark grays, burnt oranges and mossy greens. Find these on accent walls or accessories. Expect navy blue to be the “new black” that adds subtle sophistication. The trend of kitchen cabinetry with contrasting colors that has taken hold in 2020 will continue into 2021.

This year has emphasized the importance of designing both a functional and comfortable space. Creating a home that is your personal oasis starts with a paintbrush.
