The best color trends for interior decoration in 2021
From the proposals of Dulux and Jotun, prestigious international brands specialised in colour, we select the shades of the moment to decorate the home and turn it into a place of calm and wellbeing
Faced with the overload of information and visual stimuli that we experience every day, it is really overwhelming to capture and analyse all the inputs that reach us in order to be able to select the trends of the moment. Specifically, in order to glimpse which are the best colour trends for interior decoration and to go beyond each trend, understand them, predict their continuous development and translate them into ceramic products that connect with the real needs of the user, it is essential to carry out in-depth research and an exhaustive analysis.
This task begins by gathering information through trend reports, webinars, workshops, etc. Once this has been done, we have to filter data, classify and draw conclusions in order to define exactly what the main trends are and how we can use them to provide creativity and freshness.
From the Design and Product Department of Gayafores indicate that "this is our modus operandi for creating collections of porcelain floor and wall tiles that are the result of innovation inspired by the latest trends". Because, as Gudy Herder, an expert in trend analysis and the driving force behind the blog Eclectic Trends, it is about "learning not to see, but to understand trends".
"It's not about learning to see trends, it's about learning to understand trends"

Material nature and colour
The binomial of material nature and colour, acting indivisibly, plays a fundamental role in the personality of ceramic products: "Beyond the aesthetic value of the different colour palettes with which we define the collections, we are very aware of the influence that these tones have on the perception of our products, how they influence the spaces where they are placed, with what trend they can be identified and what sensations they transmit", point out the Design and Product department of Gayafores .

Always bearing in mind the intrinsic expressive capacity of colour and its powerful influence on the best colour trends for interior decoration, it is very interesting to follow with enthusiasm the great experts in the field, as is the case of Dulux y Jotun. These are two international paint brands that, every year, carry out exhaustive trend prospecting work, supported by groups of specialists in design and architecture worldwide. Both firms carry out arduous and constant research work, on the basis of which they draw up their predictions for the future in terms of colour applied to interior design.
In this regard, Dulux has selected Brave Ground as Colour of the Year 2021, a warm, natural neutral that allows you to connect with simple things.
Marianne Shillingford, creative director of Dulux UK, says: "As a result of the global pandemic, many people's priorities are shifting significantly to focus much more on wellbeing and colour plays a very important role in this. Brave Ground aligns perfectly with that yearning, reflecting the strength of nature and offering a sense of tranquillity very much in keeping with subtly sensitive environments.
