Liven Up Your Home With These Paint Colors
Spring cleaning is upon us. And if you’re like most homeowners you’ll want to rid yourself of unnecessary clutter you’ve accumulated over the year and deep clean your home. But if you’re looking to liven up your home, a fresh coat of paint is an inexpensive and easy way.
Home design and home color trends evolved and change over years and incorporating a fresh color into your home can make it feel brand new again, while increasing your home’s re-sale value. You don’t have to paint your entire home either. A colorful accent wall can add a fresh palette to any room. If you’re looking to completely re-fresh your home, paint the exterior as well.
Fresh and Vibrant
The Pantone Color Institute announced the 2019 “Color Of The Year” as Living Coral (16-1546), a fresh, and vibrant hue similar to salmon. Throughout the year you’ll see products and the fashion industry adapt this color. So why not incorporate it into your home? The color Living Coral was chosen because of its “animating and live-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge”. That sounds like just the sort of emotion you’d want to convey in your living room or bedroom. [Pantone.com]
For the past few years, as more people have adapted smart technology into their homes, technologically inspired colors have become increasingly popular. These colors are meant to mimic the artificial light of technology with an ultra-modern, slightly cosmic energy. Expect to see new homes with silver-grey accent walls, mist mimicking hues, and dark blue-greys like Sherwin-Williams’ Outerspace.
Jewels and Lively Citrus Accents
Vibrant pops of color help to break up the neutrality and calm hues that are typical in a home. Jewel toned kitchen cabinets and accents walls can add a sophisticated vitality to your home. Where as electric lime greens and yellows can add a playfulness to your space. The right incorporation of color can change the entire feeling of your home.
Woods and Earthy Colors
Woodland colors such as Sherwin Williams’ Shiitake, a warm brown blended with pale gray, and fern-inspired hues like PPG Paints’ Night Watch, can bring the healing energy of the outdoors into your home. These colors are very popular with the Farmhouse Chic look in homes because they transition seamlessly with neutral tones and natural elements.
