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.

Snake Plant

This plant is specifically known for  purifying  indoor air by removing toxins such as formaldehyde, xylene, and toluene. In order to preserve water, the plant opens its pores and releases oxygen exclusively at night. This helps it to maximize efficiency in cleaning the air, as found in study conducted by NASA. It has a clean, modern look and can be small enough for tighter spaces, perfect to keep in a bedroom. This plant prefers medium-bright direct lighting and only needs watering every 3-4 weeks. But remember to increase the watering’s if sunlight is increased. 

Air Plants

Tillandsia are adorably easy to take care of and can be displayed in the most creative ways. Whether they’re sitting clustered as a centerpiece or hung up on a wall, these plants will survive with almost no care. Our favorite way to use them would be in the shower. You read that right! Air plants make the perfect houseplant for a bathroom that receives plenty of natural light. The running water from your bathroom sink and shower helps increase humidity levels, which mimic air plants’ native environments, jungles. Just another reason to enjoy a long, warm shower. If you don’t keep them in the bathroom, just soak weekly in a bowl of room temperature water for 15-30 minutes. Shake excess water off afterward to avoid rotting.Do you feel like a serial houseplant killer? You might want to try growing these 11 plants -- in your bathroom.

Golden Pothos

This beautiful viney plant will shows off lush, white and green leaves, instantly enhancing your desktop. In fact, it is fondly nicknamed the ‘cubicle plant’. Wonderfully versatile, the pothos can be grown both in soil and water. This means you can creatively place and grow how you’d like! It prefers medium-low indirect light and only needs watering every 1-2 weeks, or when the soil is dry. Studies show it is also efficient in removing pollutants from indoor air, so you can breathe easy while you work.

Aloe Vera

We all know this is our mom’s favorite plant. It has numerous medicinal uses: reducing itchiness, soothing sunburn and improves digestive health. This plant is perfect to keep on a sunny kitchen window sill. They are drought-tolerant and actually prefer to be underwatered, so only water when dry. Not sure when to water? Wrinkles on the aloe’s fleshy leaves are a telltale sign.

Bird’s Nest Fern

And our last suggestion is, guess what? Pet-friendly! This unique plant has rippled leaves and grows out from the center. It would be the perfect addition to hang in your living room for all to admire. Plus, you won’t have to worry about it being dangerous for your fuzzy friends. This fern thrives in medium to bright indirect light, but can tolerate low indirect light. Water weekly, or whenever the soil is dry. But increase watering with increased sunlight.
