Following the recent announcement of the colour of the year chosen by the Pantone Color Institute, we have prepared a small guide to this major trend so that you can get on board with the interior design trends for 2021 and incorporate the colour into your home.
Every year, the start of the season is marked by one of the key events in the world of design: the choice of the colour of the year. This time, due in large part to the unusual 2020 we have all been through, Pantone has selected two colours that will set interior design trends for 2021: grey and yellow jointly take the throne.
Pantone gives us a perfect combo of colours to incorporate into our home: covering floors and walls with the timeless ‘Ultimate Grey’, and using accessories to add little dabs of the potent yet cheery ‘Illuminating’
Pantone Grey: Interior Design Trends for 2021
Grey has always been a favourite for floors and walls, mostly due to the timelessness of the colour palette, which allows us to opt for designs that will never go out of fashion. Moreover, it lets us add touches of colour in a natural and balanced way.
Grey is the new black: since it is the dominant shade in interior design trends for 2021, we're going to give you some ideas on how to incorporate it into the different rooms of your home. Are you ready to transform your rooms with this well-suited pair of colours?

Grey Bathroom Decor
As we mentioned above, grey has been chosen as one of the colours of the year, setting interior design trends for 2012; this colour allows us to harmoniously combine different designs and materials in the same space, creating an unbeatable duo with wood-inspired looks.
Stone and cement are well-established ways of bringing grey into spaces such as bathrooms, giving them a naturalness that you can’t get with a smooth finish.
One such design is marble, a must in bathrooms seeking a modern look; this option has been given a boost by the launch of collections in which grey features strongly.
How can you incorporate the colours of the year? One of the most elegant ways to follow this trend in bathrooms is to lean more towards the golden end of the yellow colour palette. Depending on the design you have chosen for the floor and walls, you can opt for taps with a matte or chrome finish.

In this case, Coverlam Top makes it very easy to follow this trend. It provides us with modern yet timeless designs, such as cement, with all the safety of an ultra-resistant, durable, extremely hygienic material, essential qualities in a kitchen..
