Best Interior Painting Colors For 2016
Spring is the season of renewal, and there’s no better way to celebrate it than starting an interior painting project. It’s time to open the windows, start cleaning and get busy painting. This spring some popular interior paint colors include monochromatic palettes, shades of white, shades of peach and milky blues. The interior painting experts at Paint It OKC have put together this bit of information on 2016 paint colors.
In an interview with the Columbia Daily Tribune, Sue Wadden, director of color marketing for Sherwin-Williams said, “Spring inspires us to look for lighter but not always brighter colors.” That’s why colors such as Unfussy Beige and Useful Gray are so popular this year. People are liking light, calming and somewhat monochromatic palettes, which are influenced by feelings of wellness and balance.
Shades of White
“White is a hot trend in home design this year,” according to House Beautiful Magazine. White brings a sense of freshness, cleanliness, and purity to the space it covers. There are several shades of white to choose from, making the selection process tricky, yet rewarding, when done well.
This is why Paint It recommends experimenting with different color combinations of white paint by test painting multiple walls or surfaces. Doing this allows you to see how daylight affects the look of the paint at different points in the day. Ideally, the shade combination you choose brings complexity and variety to your space while maintaining a sense of harmony, too.
Shades of Peach
Peach is making a comeback. In fact, Pantone, the world-renowned authority on color, included Peach Echo in its spring 2016 fashion color report. Now, peach is prevalent in home design. After all, fashion influences home design and vice versa.
Peach paint brings a feeling of warmth, comfort, and coziness to a room. That is why it is often used in guest rooms, dining rooms or the front areas of a home, breaking up the monotony of neutral paints like beige or tan. It’s also often used for accent walls to provide a pop of color. Peach paint pairs well with shades of blues and white.
Like white, “milky blue paint will be huge in 2016 home design,” according to House Beautiful Magazine. It balances well with warmer colors and brings a sense of relaxation to your space, often working well in bathrooms and bedrooms. Milky blue paint also may create a vintage, shabby chic, European inspired look when paired with antique accessories like chandeliers, lamps and other knick knacks. It is the perfect spring color to create a comforting space.
