Our Favorite Home Painting Ideas in 2021

Today, we will share with you the expressive home interior paint ideas we love so far in 2021 so that you can start dreaming and planning your next home interior painting projects.

Warmth & Light

Warm and inviting walls will always be a staple in home interior painting. Not only do light, neutral colors create the feeling of spaciousness, they can also help a room feel more inviting. You’ll want to incorporate some light and neutral colors throughout the home to complement these next home interior painting trends!

Bold & Earthy Tones of the ‘70s

After analyzing their Annual Designer Survey, 1st Dibs reported that 2021 was bound to see nature-inspired patterns take over home design in 2021.

Although we’ve swapped the shag carpeting and pea-green furniture for more natural, upscale accents, the nature-inspired paint colors of the ‘70s are back and better than ever. More specifically, the resurgence of ‘70s inspired jewel tones like emerald green, dark blue, burnt orange, and mustard yellow. It makes perfect sense, too! After all, these gorgeous bohemian-era colors add a grounded feeling to the spaces we’ve been spending much time in this past year, offering the humble comfort we crave after a hectic day.

Suffice it to say, incorporating the natural beauty of the great outdoors into your home interior painting and design ideas is definitely a worthy endeavor.

We love the way these white, blue, and natural accents pop against a dark blue wall.

A Mix of Pattern & Texture

They say too much of a good thing can be bad, which is why we’re loving the idea of accenting a room with unique paint patterns, textured wood accent walls, archways, and printed or hand-painted wallpaper. Mixing textures is a perfect way to add depth and warmth to your home, and we’re all for it!

Did you know there are custom wall paper companies out there like She She that will actually collaborate with you to create a one-of-a-kind wallpaper for your home or business, like the one pictured above?

Okay, so maybe wallpaper doesn’t exactly qualify as a paint trend, but it’s definitely one of the most popular interior design trends of 2021! The return of wallpaper has given homeowners the chance to “let loose” with one-of-a-kind looks while breaking up an otherwise monotonous four walls. Wallpaper is available in thousands of printed and hand-painted designs that everyone can find one they absolutely adore.

As for paneling, we’ve seen a big uptick in wood paneling accents to break up a large space and add the perfect backdrop to any room!
