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.

Incorporating Color in a World of Neutrals

A neutral design palette seems like a trend that’s here to stay. While using all neutrals can create a serene and sophisticated space, it can leave you wanting something that you just can’t put your finger on. (Hint Hint: it’s color!) We advise our clients not to envy those picture-perfect living spaces you see on Pinterest. This isn’t sustainable for families with messy kids and small budgets. That being said, having a clean background to design can be fun. Here are some of our favorite ways to keep a space neutral with added hints of personality.

In the Kitchen

The kitchen craze today is all white, very sleek, very clean. While this may be easy to admire, it is not easy to maintain and start to bore homeowners. We always work with clients who want a modern, white look, but also need to feel at home. An easy way to add color to a kitchen space is on the island. Below eye level, two-tone cabinets are enough out of the way to be bothersome, but effective when adding interest to a modern kitchen. Additionally, most kitchens have an island area for casual seating and this can be a great opportunity to add color. Whether the stools are upholstered or colored metal ones like below, incorporating a common color similar to the rest of the house can really tie a home design together without leaving the kitchen out.

 

In the Living Room

Similar to the kitchen stools, accent chairs are a great way to incorporate a bold color into the living room to liven it up. These rich navy armchairs with acrylic feet are modern enough while also inviting to sit down in. If the entire chair seems to be too much for you, we often customize upholstered seating to have two coordinating patterns on the inside section then another on the backside. This is especially helpful if you would want a detailed look from a specific viewpoint. Even less of a risk, add colorful pillows and a rug that incorporates a color to avoid designing a bland space.

 

In the Dining Room

Incorporating color into a dining room can be tricky; there are not a lot of ways to do it without breaking a modern, sleek feel. In this home, we did it in the wall art. This is the safest route to go for people, for it is easily changeable. To create a unique space, the paired wall hangings add variety while still matching the color scheme. It is important to add variety to space and in this case, it was done in a unified way. The colored corals in geometric frames easily enhance the mood of the area while sticking to the modern coastal design.

 

In the Bathroom

A bathroom is a place for serenity and calm, so, people tend to steer clear of bold colors when designing it. Naturally, neutrals thrive in this. A quick pop of color can really freshen the room up. Here we see this on the turquoise wall decor and some greenery on the countertop. Avoid the easy mistake of going to bland and add color to your bathroom by painting the vanity, having a bright accent tile, or placing a thin, colorful woven rug on the ground. You will appreciate this accent one groggy morning.
