These rich saturated hues of warming reds are chic by day and cosy by night, welcoming a grounded but luxurious atmosphere to any room. Ruth Mottershead, the creative director at Little Greene, explains that ‘Bold yet natural pairings are also on trend, with strong greens being paired with striking tones such as ‘Chocolate Colour’, or rich ‘Baked Cherry’ in combination with ‘Invisible Green’ to create dramatic yet intimate and inviting interiors’. 

6. New neutrals

Over recent years there has been a resurgence of milky toned neutrals. Ruth Mottershead sees '2021 as being a year of creating cocooning, cosy spaces, there will be a shift away from the cooler greys, and warm neutrals such as ‘Oak Apple’, ‘Mushroom’ and ‘Bath Stone’ will become the go-to tones,’.
