It looks like 2021 is the year for calming tones and casual comfort. Adding your favourite 2021 colour pick throughout your apartment can be easy, even without painting. We've got some simple tips to get you started.
As we're all spending more time in our kitchens cooking and dining together, it's time to give your kitchen an upgrade. It's easy to add little pops of colour throughout the kitchen that go a long way. Try hanging some eye-catching dish towels, laying a long area rug down in front of the sink, or purchase new cooking utensils in your favourite colour that can sit right on your countertop.
In the living room, create a focal wall with a large abstract painting or work of art. Work your chosen colour throughout the room with small touches like throw pillows, lampshades, or an area rug. New bedlinens can completely transform a bedroom. If you want to do more, consider adding colourful curtains over your blinds.
Benjamin Moore's Aegean Teal works seamlessly with a pale grey, white, and even mauve. Use those colours together to make it feel like you redesigned your bathroom. Just switch out the shower curtain, add a new rug, and bring in towels in those complementing colours.
Whichever colour you choose as your colour of the year, remember to add other colours of the same family. Doing this will allow your apartment décor to seamlessly fit together and flow room to room.
