2017 Color Trends

January 3, 2017

Choosing a color palette for the interior of your house can give rooms an updated, fresh look. A coat of paint can transform a space from drab to fab. Choosing the best color for the size, architecture and personality of a room, however, is no easy task. That is where the color and design experts come into play. Professionals at Behr, Sherwin-Williams, Martha Stewart and Benjamin Moore have recently announced the 2017 Color Trends. Their predictions are a mix of both bright and bold colors as well as soft and subtle colors. Let’s take a sneak peek at the upcoming trends in paint colors.

  • Soft Hues – If you are nervous about bright and bold colors, these more delicate colors may be just your thing for 2017. Look for paint and home accessories in misty colors, such as pastel lemon, rose quartz, and mineral gray—they’re perfect for brightening small or dark rooms.
  • Color Saturation or Bold Choices – If you are more daring in your color choices, Behr predicts that some bold colors will be big in 2017. These include lively shades such as vibrant jade and spicy red.
  • Moody Neutrals – If neutrals are more your style, these darker and moodier neutrals may be a good pick for your home. Look out for “deep, earth-inspired tones and rich jeweled shades.” Combining earthy green and taupe can create a calming room and still provide a splash of color.  

The right paint color can set the tone for every room in your house. Before you jump on the color-bandwagon, however, make sure you are not just choosing a hue because “experts” say it is the “in” color. Be sure the color fits your style, personality and most especially the room in which it will grace the walls. Ask our professionals to consult with you about your color choice and how it will fit in your home.
