It is not surprising, given that many homeowners in the Shenandoah Valley have been working from home and educating their children from the dining room table, that the colors of the year give a tip of the hat to Mother Nature.

Pantone and major paint manufacturers have picked colors that are warm and comforting and reflect natural environments. These colors are expected to dominate fashion and home decorations in 2021.

If you are dreaming of a new kitchen or master bath and want to ensure that you are on-trend, consider the following color schemes that have received the nod as colors of the year:

Pantone’s 2020 color of the year is Classic Blue. According to Pantone, “Instilling calm, confidence and connection, this enduring blue hue highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era.”

Sherwin-Williams 2021 color of the year is Urbane Bronze, an earth-toned shade that provides the look and feel of mindful reflection and renewal.

The PPG 2021 color palette of the year is a trio of colors dubbed Be Well. The choices include Transcend, a mid-tone oatmeal-colored hue that draws on earthy influences and nostalgia; BigCypress, a shaded ginger with persimmon undertones and MistyAqua, a watercolor cerulean blue. According to PPG, the colors are designed to evoke feelings of compassion and comfort to address family and societal needs.
