2021 Color Trend Report

Comfortable, Nurturing, and Optimistic
Posted 09/18/2020
2021 Color Trends

Never have our homes been so important.

We have learned to use and adapt them into almost every aspect of our lives. This shift shows just how resilient and creative we are. It first began small with clearing clutter, fixing up our homes, and planting a garden. Then we organized ourselves and learned to work together as a family. As we are staying at home more, we look to create nurturing environments. Nature has been a partner in finding inspiration. In the great outdoors, we feel safe and know it is important mentally and physically to stay strong with activities.

Diamond Vogel’s 2021 Color Trend Palette offers inspiration found not just in nature but in our search and desire to stay healthy and strong as we dream of the day we can all be back together.

truth seeker

Durability, strength, and resilience. We desire authentic experiences and relationships during a time when we have a limited ability to have them. In a modern world where it is hard to decipher between what is real or what was created for the experience, we seek the truth. Our new virtual world gives us some of our needs, but we truly need human touch and real encounters to feel strong and alive. This palette offers tender earth neutrals, warm and comforting browns, and a red that makes us feel alive. These durable colors connect us to the reality we seek.
