In 2021 messaging focuses on living a slow and considered life. Sun-bleached, earthy shades such as Langoustino support a handcrafted aesthetic, drawing on tonal colour combinations to reflect a restorative and comforting mood.

Natural dyes evoke a parental desire for the home and specifically the child’s environment to become even more environmentally friendly. The rise in veganism paves the way for a soft, misty shade of green; a colour that reflects a modesty and conscious consumption.
Easter Egg, PANTONE 16-3925 TCX
Clockwise, Left to right: Eloeil, Alex and Alexa, OLA, Hooligans Canvas Wanderlust
We see an increase in fantasy and escapist themes for children within the Baby & Kids market, sparked by a desire for creativity and endless play. Ice cream colour palettes combining powder coated metals in chalky purples and blues or mirrored pastel substrates create playful optical illusions.
Selecting Colour Through a Global Lens
These colours have been selected for their versatility and suitability on a global scale. All six key colours work well in both sunlit and shady conditions, appealing to homeowners in both the Northern and Southern hemispheres. Depending on the orientation of the natural light source, each of the hues will display a variegated tone throughout the day. Each hue can be used in varying quantities in interior design projects, whether that be wall to wall colour, or simply as an accent colour for soft furnishings, home décor, furniture, print and pattern.
