It’s official — 2021 is the year we finally say goodbye to all-neutral spaces and welcome bold shades. In fact, it’s been confirmed: As Lauren Cox, manager at online interior design service Havenly, told TZR in November, “I think 2021 will bring out our needs to showcase our design personalities through other more bold, colorful, patterned means.” Need more proof? Look to all the celebs embracing orange, the 2021 home color trend that’s all set to reign supreme.
It seemed to happen all at once; one day, every A-lister was showing off their minimalist homes, and the next, stars like Gigi Hadid and Mindy Kaling were posting pictures of rooms painted entirely orange, noting a sudden and drastic shift in decor trends for the new year.
That said, you may be hesitant to commit to a color as bright as orange quite so wholeheartedly, which is understandable — it’s not for the faint of heart. In that case, take notes from someone like Chrissy Teigen, who added a rust-colored sofa to her living room, or even Victoria Beckham, who simply enhanced her citrus-toned space with orange artwork.
