In late 2019, projected interior design trends for 2020 reflected an on-the-go mood with bright colors and bold hues. As we approach the end of this very unusual year, 2021 anticipated design trends seem to be heading toward light, airy, and crisp whites and soft colors, reflective of a hopeful and optimistic outlook for the new year.
This lighter color palette, evident in everything from cabinetry, flooring, and furnishings, is alive and well in many of the newly refreshed condominium homes at both Juhl and One Las Vegas in the Entertainment Capital of the World.
According to Uri Vaknin, partner, KRE Capital, whose company owns a portfolio of high-rise condo towers in Las Vegas, including Juhl and One Las Vegas, touches of light grey porcelain tile, quartz countertops and sparkling, luminescent white cabinets and wood trim help to create a crisp, peaceful and airy look. White cabinet doors and light-colored subway tiles with touches of sparkly metallic extend the cool and light aesthetic.
As it does each year, paint brand PPG released its 2021 paint color palette consisting of earthy neutrals including a ginger that the company calls “the equivalent of a big, comforting hug for your home,” a “brown sugar beige,” and a soothing watercolor blue. PPG officials say its “Be Well” palette is intended for the consumer who wants to fully embrace mindfulness and intention, showcasing natural hues that are restorative, compassionate and optimistic.
“When the world experiences events that cause unrest, anxiety and grief, we tend to naturally gravitate toward compassionate colors that allow us to create a personal retreat from the world,” said PPG senior color marketing manager, architectural and industrial coatings, Dee Schlotter speaking with DesignersToday. “This organic and hopeful palette represents what we have been longing for after decades of overstimulation and overconsumption – simplicity and restfulness.”
Another paint giant Behr also recently released its color forecast consisting of a palette of 21 shades with “comfort and personalization” as the inspiration. Organized into six palettes, the 21 shades include light, warm neutrals, restorative blues and greens, and soft, gentle hues from pale pink to Smoky White.
While the soothing lighter colors are dominating design trends, there’s also optimism for the new year with both brands including complementary colors. Vibrant turquoise, sunny saffron, and Euphoric Magenta are among the uplifting hues that will resonate with homeowners in 2021.
‘After almost a year of uncertainty and longing for normalcy, homeowners are definitely leaning toward creating an environment that elicits a sense of familiarity, well-being and contentment,” said Vaknin.
Foreseeing homeowners’ desire for a more hopeful color palette, the interior design specialists, headed by Lee Bryan, are busy upgrading select homes at both One Las Vegas on South Las Vegas Blvd. and Juhl in Downtown Las Vegas. Meticulous attention is being paid to every detail in these contemporary luxury condominiums to create a celebration of beauty and style.
Only 24 residences remain at One Las Vegas today. Available homes range from 1,344 to 2,857 square feet, priced from the mid $400s. At Juhl, loft-style condominiums in an array of floor-plan configurations range from 800 – over 1900 square feet, priced from the low $200s.
