Read on if you want to be on trend with the best interior paint colors of the year
HAZELNUT FOR A WARM FEEL
This comforting color makes rooms feel warm and inviting and look very creamy and smooth. It works in spaces that need to be brightened up and catch more light, as it bounces light off the walls and makes the room seem bigger. This color can take on ash, maple or pine tones and it is also sure to never go out of style or clash with your design.
LILAC GREY FOR A MOODIER FEEL
This color is much moodier than the traditional gray. The lilac makes the gray hues warmer in this color, making it more neutral and cheerful. The grey undertone gives the environment a calm feel, being very subtle so you don’t get tired of it quickly, but makes walls come alive.
DARK GREENS FOR LUSHNESS AND NATURAL FEELS
This is one of Pantone’s colors of the year and works to emulate lushness and nature in the home. The color can work either muted or moody. It should be used in spaces that are large and already well-lit, though, as it can overpower small spaces because of its intensity. It’s timeless and works very well with natural elements and tones, transitioning well between walls and furniture.
MUTED PASTELS FOR NEUTRAL ROOMS
Pastels in muted tones are soothing and understated, perfect for neutral rooms and common areas like kitchens and bathrooms. They are great for concealing scuff marks and nicks. They can also make a minimal room feel warm and have a high compatibility with many shades, being a bit monochromatic.
SOFT CLAY FOR A SUNNY ZEST
This color is a great alternative for the traditional beiges and browns. It gives rooms sunny zest and a casual elegance. Alternatives to this are terra cotta, caramel, clove and burnt orange, that work great as accent colors or backsplash. These colors elevate a room’s mood, giving it a nature-inspired creamy hue.
NEW BLUES FOR SOOTHING ROOMS
These include charcoal blue, ice blue, grey-blue and pale powder blue and are a very subtle take on traditional blues. These colors can be very soothing and make a room feel larger. They are what can be called blues with a misty haze, promoting a more serene environment.
MUSTARD FOR POPS OF COLOR
Provides for good pops of color and can be a great alternative to gold, which used too much can make a room feel overwhelming. It creates a rich feeling mood and is great for focal accents, accent walls and trim. It is also great for providing depth when using the muted or moody depths of the palette and for highlighting art.
MIST FOR AN INTERESTING CANVAS
This color, if it can be called that, is a mix between a muted pastel blue and green that has a grey and lilac undertone. It provides a great canvas for all types of decor. It is much more interesting than the traditional whites and beiges and works to cover up imperfections.
MUSHROOM FOR A FRESH AND NATURAL MOOD
An alternate of browns and rust colors, mushroom is very neutral and timeless, evoking a fresh yet natural mood. It looks great with natural furnishings like wood and is part of a “woodland” palette because of its earth-grey color blended with warm brown. The color gives an old world natural feel to any room.
PEWTER FOR A LESS BLAND BLANK CANVAS
A mix of grey and beige, pewter is an alternative to white and provides an almost blank canvas that is a little less bland. It is a shade that works with everything in every room of the house. Used in the minimalist style, it makes a room feel less cluttered and offers a thoughtful simplicity.
