Autumn colours for 2021: surprisingly different

After the end of summer, a warm atmosphere requires more than good heating. With some stylish highlights, you can keep up your spirits even when it storms outside.

The Dulux Colour Forecast 2021 gave us insight into the popular colour schemes for autumn in 2021: subtle, natural hues that invite you to get creative.

Fall 2021: a season of peace and quiet

While red and berry colours were trending last year, now it’s all about soft neutral tones – from powdery cream white and beige to brown and green hues, including Morocco Tan and Olive Blend. Soft, earthy colours exude a sense of calmness and relaxation. Darker shades, on the other hand, add visual depth and new layers. Open living and dining areas, as well as kitchens, hallways, and bedrooms will appear even more spacious and homely.

Autumn colours with a personal touch

The best part about unobtrusive shades? They leave ample room for your own ideas. For example, a creamy velvet white together with a darker tone provides a perfect background for your centrepieces – whether it be furniture or seasonal decorations.

You can also mix different interior styles within the same room. Combined with structured textiles, bright wood, and warm light, the earthy colours of autumn 2021 will give your home a cosy feel.

Small details that make a big difference

On the wall, you can add subtle accents such as elegant light switches in matching frames. Variants from the Gira Esprit design line in light grey, light brown, bronze, or aluminium light gold underscore the natural charm of your seasonal colour scheme.

Likewise, Gira E2 switches switches will blend in harmoniously: variants in grey matt or black matt work particularly well against a light backdrop.
