It's a new year — which means a fresh new color palate is ready to take over all of the latest design trends. From the annual announcement of Pantone's color of the year, to predictions from the top names in decor, these are the paint colors you can expect to see all over the place in 2021.
Ultimate gray
Called "solid and dependable," this gray color from Pantone is a perfect neutral to apply to any wall in your home or piece of furniture that needs a modern touch.
Illuminating yellow 
This bright and hopeful color from Pantone could be the antidote 2021 needs to shake off the challenges of the past year. And why not bring a little brightness indoors?
A bit bolder than the soft blues of the past few years, this fresh shade is a great way to add a pop of color without going too crazy. Plus, with a water-like effect, using this color on your walls can give a room a calming feel.
Olive green
The natural, soothing color of olive green is the perfect shade to make you feel like you brought a little of the natural world inside. Paired with some lighter wood tones, you can have yourself a trendy, peaceful retreat.
When in doubt, paint it black. OK, maybe give this one a little more thought than that, but black walls are growing in popularity and could have their moment in 2021. If you're feeling bold, it might be the perfect option for you.
Of course, we've said it before and we'll say it again: As fun as it can be to follow trends, it's most important to choose a color that you like.
