Have you ever wondered why bright, vivid colors make us feel more awake and alert? Or why pastel tones have such a calming effect? Color isn’t just an aesthetic choice; it also has a powerful impact on your mood and energy level. That’s why it’s so important to choose the right color scheme for your home, using colors that not only look great but feel great.
If your home’s current paint scheme is starting to feel a bit “blah,” maybe it’s time to turn a new design leaf. To help spark your imagination, we’ve put together a list of some of the hottest and most popular paint colors for 2019.
You might think of color as something that’s timeless, but, like styles of clothing or furniture, paint color trends come and go. So what are some trending wall colors right now? The design experts weigh in.
No, it’s not a Game of Thrones reference. “Night Watch” green is PPG’s official color of 2019, making dark green this year’s dominant paint trend. Since this hue is so deep and intense, small amounts (like pillows or accent walls) can go a long way.
Mustard combines elements of gold, brown, yellow, orange, red, and even grey. The result, a rich and earthy atmosphere is as much invigorating as is soothing. Simultaneously eye-catching and understated, mustard tones are a stately addition to any room in the home.
Warm yet vivid, clay tones like caramel or terra cotta make any room feel more inviting and more exciting. Clay tones also make the perfect design complement for a rustic, Tuscan, or country-inspired interior.
Dark greens, mustards, and clay tones are definitely “in” right now, but they aren’t the only color trends to pay attention to in 2019. Here are two more colors that are forecasted to be rising stars of the design world this year.
Mushroom browns are a throwback to the design culture of the 1970s — which just happens to be all the rage right now. These soft, muted browns pair pleasantly with almost every other color, making them a breeze to incorporate into your home.
Greys have stolen the spotlight in recent years. Now, let us introduce you to the newest shade: “Mist.” Soft and subtle as the name suggests, Mist Grey is a classy, elegant twist on neutral wall color staples like eggshell and off-white.
