Each year everyone wants to know – what are the colors of the year? What is in style? No one wants to remodel their Plano home, only to find the finsishes and colors dated a year or two later.
In recent years, we’ve seen the move from taupes, beiges, and rich colors into lighter and airy color schemes. 2015 ushered in the “year of gray” when everyone was talking about what hue of gray – or greige – to paint your home as the perfect neutral.
So what’s the word on 2016? Pedigo Construction has the scoop for you! Look for these paint colors and palettes to be popular now:
Grays are still hot!
Grays are predicted to continue to be big in 2016, but will move along the spectrum – transitioning from cool grays to warmer grays. You’ll see more hints of yellow undertones, warming up spaces. This means that greiges – a blend between a gray and a beige paint – might be your best bet for a neutral that feels both current and timeless.
White is back in full force.
Pure white walls and trim are making a big comeback as North Texas homeowners are anxious to ditch “heavy,” rich color palettes in favor of a more light and airy look. But don’t just take it from us. Both Sherwin Williams and Benjamin Moore chose a shade of white as their “color of the year” for 2016. Sherwin Williams chose Alabaster from its line; Benjamin Moore chose Simple White from theirs.
A perfect compliment to the popular gray and white palettes, blues and blue-greens are expected to be big this year. Again, it won’t be the cool blues as much, but warmer blues that add charm and reflect light well. The beautiful thing about blues is that they are able to blend warmer and cooler tones throughout the home.
Try an accent wall.
If you love richer, deeper colors, then consider an accent wall that will still keep the space light and airy, but will add a pop. Consider using a richer shade of the colors mentioned above – maybe a deep, charcoal gray or a navy blue with gray undertones.
