Sometimes there’s nothing better than your favorite broken-in denim. That’s the sentiment that guided York Wallcoverings in declaring Blue Jean Jacket as its 2021 Color of the Year. The color signals a trend towards cozy and comfortable interiors, and exemplifies the relationships between today’s cultural sentiment and the style preferences of today’s interior designers and homeowners.

York’s in-house trend and color expert Carol Miller commented: “From an aesthetics perspective, Blue Jean Jacket is a beautiful color found in many of our most popular wallcoverings, and we’ve seen a big shift towards styles that evoke feelings of comfort and casual togetherness at home. There have been a lot of challenges this past year, and looking into 2021, people are craving spaces that provide relaxation.”
