If you’re planning to paint the interior walls of your home, it’s a fantastic way to freshen the look of your home for very little money. There are so many great paints from which to choose on the market and so many great colors that it can be tough to choose a palette that simply works.
What Are the Most Popular Colors?
There are various color trends every year when it comes to interior design but many homeowners tend to stick to the same old favorites time and time again. White, beige, light gray, and very pale variations of other colors such as tan tend to sell pretty quickly.
So why do people tend to buy these neutral colors? There are a few reasons why people love these kinds of colors so much:
If you just want to freshen up your home and you want a traditional look that will stand the test of time, these classic colors are a great idea.
Current Color Trends That Stand Out
Of course, you may not want to stick to the traditional color palette. You may want to have a few feature walls in your home or just experiment with a completely different color palette in specific rooms. Here are some of the most interesting color choices for 2019:
These colors are warm and have a rustic feel to them. Rather than use them to cover an entire wall, which could be a little too much visually, it may be a better idea to use these colors for trim and small areas. Having said that, using a rich bronze on a single feature wall and a pale tan color on the other walls can really warm up the room.
This is one of those colors that seem to pop up now and again. It’s not the brightest of greens and has a classic, traditional feel to it.
Olive green tends to be at home with pale colors or bright colors. It’s one of those colors that just works with so many combinations. If you want to get a little bold, a combination of olive green and brighter colors such as lemon yellow can really make an area pop.
If you really want to stick to those neutral, classic shades but you also want to dip your toe into some color experimentation, adding some blue could be the answer.
Neutrally painted walls, such as white, can be livened up with touches of blue around the place. Cornices, fireplaces, doors, window frames, and feature walls can be painted a shade of blue to offset the starkness of the neutral shades. In this way, you may even be able to go a little bold and use darker blues.
