2017 Paint Color Trends
New Year, New Hue!
As 2016 approaches the end, the days have become shorter, greyer, and much colder. Many of us are spending more time being cooped up indoors, and becoming increasingly bored with the color of our walls. The new year is the perfect time to try new things, so this could be the perfect time to change your interior paint color to one of the hot paint hues for 2017.
Paint Color Trends
The Sherwin Williams projected trends of 2017 reflect many of the global ideas and feelings that people have on current events. For example, cool arctic neutrals, blush roses, and forest browns are indicative of the sustainability spirit. If you are looking for a subtle, modern look in your home, these are the colors for you.
Another 2017 trend example show like a mesh between the real and virtual worlds. This color scheme is all about vibrant purples, and fiery reds and yellows that work to satisfy a sense of self-expression, bringing energy to an increasingly bland technological and commercial world.
Paint color trends also include, and are comprised of, earthy mustards, ocean blues, popping corals, and the natural colors found in mud and soil. This trend is all about depicting the diversity of the world in which we live, as well as bringing a natural, more lively look inside the home.
Finally, a highly recommended hue is the 2017 Sherwin Williams Color of the Year… “Poised Taupe! (Sherwin Williams Paint Code: SW 6039)”
As Sue Warren, the director of color marketing for Sherwin Williams describes it, “It’s like grey and brown had a baby.”
For the past several years, the most used and desired neutral color was grey. Recently though, it seems that neutrals are warming up! So, if you are looking for a modern balance between subtlety and a pop of color, this may be the hue for you.
