A New Year, a New Hue – Color Trends for 2016
Are you getting a little bored with the colors within your home? Do you want to turn drab into delightful? It’s not that hard to do, especially when you check out some of these fantastic paint colors that design experts believe will trend heavily in 2016.
Purple and Lilac – While these shades are sometimes thought of as childish (thanks, Barney!), if used correctly they can transform a boring room with sharp, delightful color. Take a regal step forward with these lush paints.
Milky Blue – Blue is a strong color in its most common incarnation, but why not soften the experience with a seductive off-blue shade? This gentler blue really brings a sense of comfort and relaxation to any room.
Alabaster White – Take a guess what shade was Sherwin-Williams’ color of the year for 2016? The paint manufacturer calls Alabaster White “understated and alluring,” and you’ll agree when you set off some hot colors with this versatile off-white paint.
Parma Gray – Don’t let the word “gray” throw you off. This particular shade is replete with hints of blue and lavender. It’s a great color that will compliment many other colors you want in your home.
Dark Teal – This Benjamin Moore creation is a little more specialized, but still versatile within its wide palette of color matches. It’s a wonderful shade for walls or trim and compliments everything from handsome wood to stark white walls.
Rainstorm – Here’s a very rich and robust color from Sherwin-Williams. Use it in entryways, bathrooms, bedrooms and any place where a little strength is desired.
Pink Ballet Slipper – This lovely color is a powdery pink. A perfect accent color or ideal for entire walls, Pink Ballet Slipper will infuse softness into any space.
Funky Yellow – From Sherwin-Williams, this yellow is definitely a hot trend with a green base that makes it, well, funky. It’s a warm, versatile color that’s easy to live with and strangely comforting.
Cream Delight – If you love color but prefer traditional looks, Cream Delight is a good choice. You can use this color to draw in more light from the sun, and because of its neutral hues, it can match a huge variety of trim and contrast colors.
These are some of the interior paint colors we expect to see growing in popularity throughout 2016. Do you need help with an indoor painting project this winter? The experienced crews at Christy and Sons Quality Painting are standing by to bring color and zest into your home.
