Looking to add some color to your world and soothe your soul in the process? Why not choose one or more of the recently announced paint colors of the year? This year, Pantone and well-known paint companies have announced picks designed to add a bit of cheer, a bit of tranquility and a bit of rejuvenation to your home and your world.
Without further ado, here are next year’s trending colors:
Pantone Color Institute
Pantone has long used its picks for color of the year to reflect the past year and hopes for the year ahead. This year, the company chose not one but two colors: The neutral Ultimate Gray and vibrant yellow Illuminating. The combination of colors is meant to reflect the strength and hopefulness needed for the new year. Ultimate Gray provides a neutral foundation for walls while cheery Illuminating is a great accent color.
If gray isn’t your cup of tea, Rust-Oleum offers Satin Paprika, a spicy red that creates a warm and comforting environment perfect for bedrooms, outdoor living spaces and studies.
Interior decorators have been predicting a trend toward blues and greens for the past six months and Glidden has obliged, selecting Aqua Fiesta PPG1147-4. The vibrant aquamarine hue easily dresses up an accent wall. Use it in the primary bath or as a contrast color in a room devoted to wispy whites.
Need a little tranquility or an accent for a room filled with plants? Aegean Teal 2136-40 may be just for you. The soothing color encourages relaxation and wellness while managing to give rooms a modern, up-to-date look.
Sherwin-Williams went with a bold neutral. Urbane Bronze SW 7048 is a warm shade of gray-brown that reflects our need for serenity and stability.
