A fresh coat of paint can instantly refresh and modernize your home’s interior, but the right color makes all the difference. You want to choose a color that sets the mood for a particular space as well as one that blends with your home’s overall style.
The New Neutrals
The stark minimalist paint color trends of the last few years are finally starting to warm up. Cool, monochromatic grays have been the top trendy neutral colors for years, but the movement toward natural, organic, and weathered materials have led to the rise of more complex shades of gray featuring taupe and brown undertones. Sherwin-Williams’ 2017 Color of the Year, Poised Taupe (SW 6039) embraces both warm and cool tones, resulting in a weathered, woodsy, and complex neutral. Blacks, whites, and grays are also making way for blush pinks, beiges, browns, and creams due to a rise in Bohemian-inspired decor and the embrace of “millennial pink”. The new neutrals are definitely not boring!
Always looking toward the future, Sherwin-Williams, the industry leader in paint and coatings for over 150 years, has released their predictions for next year with their Colormix 2018 Color Forecast. The Sherwin-Williams Colormix 2018 Color Forecast predicts that 2018 will embody the spirit of contemporary life with their three color palettes inspired by the collective culture of the moment.
- Sincerity: Influenced by silence, Instagram, minimalism, hygge, and normcore, Sherwin-Williams’ Sincerity palette embraces authenticity and de-cluttering with an array of dusty browns, complex grays, and botanical greens.
- Affinity: Influenced by roaming transculturalism, community, artisanal crafts, and indigenous patterns, the Affinity palette draws from the new culture of everyday nomadism with its neutral browns and striking pinks and blues.
- Connectivity: Influenced by California pop, youth culture techies, virtual reality, productivity, and environmentalism, the high-tech Connectivity palette features digital blues and greens and high-def yellows and oranges.
