ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Belgard®, the leader in outdoor living essentials for the patio and beyond, announced its 2021 Color of the Year – Marigold. Exhibiting both versatility and vibrancy, this yellow hue is a direct reflection of how 2020 has impacted consumers’ needs in everyday life, focusing on the importance in creating a space that fosters growth, connection and inspiration.
The punchy color enlivens many of the Belgard paver palettes by adding a bold flare to a space while still complementing earthy tones. Expressing energy and versatility, Marigold creates a dynamic, playful space when paired with neutrals or other bright hues, or can add spurts of creativity to a chic, upscale outdoor environment.
“This year, we’re turning our focus toward embodying a sense of renewal, joy and energy in the spaces that impact us the most - our homes,” says Joe Raboine, Director of Residential Hardscapes at Belgard. “We’re starting to view our surroundings in a new light, emphasizing the importance of creativity and functionality in a space, while encouraging wellbeing. Marigold is inspired by this restored importance with a bright aesthetic that is bold yet comforting.”
Over the past several months, the home has been completely redefined. Creating an uplifting sanctuary in an outdoor space has blossomed to more significance, as society as a whole spends more time at home for both work and play. Including Marigold-colored features, such as potters, furniture and décor, can encourage wellbeing through:
- Recharging & Relaxing: A well designed outdoor space can encourage exercise, meditation and work, in turn recharging oneself and one’s spirit. Adding in pops of Marigold can further nurture this energetic atmosphere, taking an occupant’s experience up a notch.
- Thoughtful Design: Homeowners are returning to nature by incorporating biophilic design trends in all elements of construction, especially in outdoor spaces. Spending more time in nature can improve overall happiness and wellbeing, and integrating this brave yellow tone further inspires health while adding a sense of uniqueness.
- Bringing the Indoors Out: Integrating functional stone elements into a backyard, such as an outdoor kitchen or office, can evoke a smooth flow between the indoors and outdoors, and can contribute to style, especially by including bursts of Marigold with planters and décor.
