2021’s Trending Color: AI Aqua

You may be reading this blog thinking it is way too soon to worry about the trends of 2021. Well truth is, you have already probably seen some in action! We have already identified an upcoming 2021 color. Drum roll please…. AI Aqua! It is read as A.I., as in artificial intelligence. This past year, we’ve had to adapt to many technological dependencies, so this bright hue would be the perfect reflection of where the world is headed.

An Electrifying Color to Incorporate to Interiors

AI Aqua is both sporty and trend-forward. It was originally connected to the thought of circuit-boards and in the branding of start-up tech companies. “Going forward, technology is only going to become a more integral part of our lives,” WGSN’s head of color Jane Monnington Boddy told Dezeen. “The digital world will become faster, more efficient, and in turn we will become even more connected and aligned.” A study of the Internet’s most heavily trafficked websites showed that there are nearly twice as many shades of blue as shades of yellow and red, and three times as much green,” said Monnington Boddy. If you think about it, we check Facebook, LinkedIn, or Twitter daily, all of which have attractive blue logos.

Embracing Tech-Forwardness

We can already predict this color will be popping up in many tech, fashion, and interior ways. In the past year, we have seen athleisure wear skyrocket as people left their home less often. This aqua color is the perfect color to apply to a streamline article of clothing to help it stand out while running errands. We see a similar trend of Pantone’s past 2019 color, Living Coral. AI Aqua is the perfect complement of it, advocating positive attitudes and embracing color throughout the year. We have seen the blue in many cases is replacing usually black staples.

Styles That Are “Lighting” Up

As the year starts to come to a close and a new year is approaching, interior design styles are ever-evolving. When you break down a cohesive style, there are a couple of key elements that can make or break the design. The different types of lighting fixtures you choose can really elevate a room or blend into the background. These are some trendy options that we have noticed recently that can easily upgrade your room in seconds.

Natural Fixtures

The bohemian style has really taken over the past couple years. We’ve seen this from fully boho to a more chic take; either way some people don’t worry about the lighting fixture as much as their décor when it comes to styling their retreat. To help maintain a healthy, relaxing vibe, it works best if you include lots of texture like basket weaving or bamboo. And keep the shape interesting; don’t be afraid to oversize your lighting a little to add drama since the theoretical weight of these chandeliers are so airy.

This one is for those who are still loving their lived-in home look but just want to freshen things up. Updating your lighting can make a huge difference in a space and if you keep the style simple but creative, your space can take on a whole new look. These pieces are pretty flexible in what styles or rooms they can be used in. Whenever we choose to use these modern-takes on traditional chandeliers, our clients love them!

Hanging Pendants

These are definitely hip trend that has become more relevant and sought-after. Hanging pendants often come in clusters that add visual interest to a room. Or, we see them in a straight line to fit and stretch the appearance of a room. We’ve seen a wide variety of these in modern foyers to farmhouse dining rooms. They mainly add ambience lighting to a focused area and are used for more aesthetic purposes.
