Home Design Colors and Trends

As the saying goes, it’s time for “out with the old, and in with the new.” With a new year, it might be time to change the look of your home. The bright color you loved in the early 2000s now is a bit out of date. Or maybe the flooring design you’ve had for years is finally too out of date.

However, navigating through trends can be difficult, especially when figuring out what’s right for you. To help, we’ve rounded up our predictions of what home design colors and trends will be the most talked about in 2017.

Lucky for you, painting your home to match current trends is easy to do and one of the less costly upgrades you can make to your home. One of the biggest changes you might see in color trends this year is a jump from warm pastels to bold and bright jewel colors. Think deep purple, green and blue. The Sherwin-Williams ColorMix prediction describes this year’s bold colors as “soulful and spiritual.”

Of course, some homeowners might be fearful of using darker colors in their home. Utilizing these jewel tones is all about maximizing your lighting. Try using in a living room or bedroom to create a cozy atmosphere without losing natural light. If you’re not ready to paint your entire room in a bold color, try using as an accent throughout your room.

If you’re not yet familiar with greige, make 2017 the year you get well acquainted. Gray has been the must-have neutral paint color the past few years, appearing in many living rooms across America. And, for good reason! It’s extremely versatile and gives your space a clean look. But, as all trends change, gray has now become a bit warmer, with beige. This creates “Greige!” Depending on the hue you choose, it could be a warmer gray or a cooler beige. It’s a great interior paint color for any room of the home.

One of the best parts about using greige is that it makes a great compliment to the jewel tones we discussed above. It gives a clean look and truly is a perfect backdrop for bold accent colors to pop.
