Hot Paint Colors 2017 From Your Professional Painters
As your professional house painter, we like to share information about paint and house painting. According to this article excerpt from Elle Décor by Devin Alessio: “It’s now 2017, which means one thing: It’s time to discuss which home decor trends will define the year. On the color front, sophisticated hues are poised to take center stage, according to Behr, which has predictions for colors to keep an eye on in 2017. The paint company has divided its selections into three palettes — Confident, Composed, and Comfortable — and if they are any indication, we’ll be drawing decor inspiration from our personalities in the year ahead. Creative, social types will be drawn to the Confident palette, defined by dusky blues, spicy reds, and lime greens, designed to captivate your attention. Then there’s the Composed palette. Its earthy greens and taupes will be a go-to for traditionalists looking to create a contemporary space. And it’s all about pale pastels in the Comfortable range, characterized by light pinks, blues, and yellows that make the smallest of spaces pop. Its muted shades are ideal for introverts who want to make their first foray into accent colors. We’ve already seen some of these shades make waves this year, so if you need some help imagining how they might play out in your own space, look no further than 9 rooms below. It’s easy to see why we’ll be obsessed with them well into 2017.” [View Source]
So what do color trends look like for 2017? In a word? Pastels. Whether it is Gentle Aquamarine by Sherwin-Williams, Jade Dragon by Behr, or Endless Sea by Sherwin-Williams, the colors are more muted this year. There aren’t vibrant reds or oranges as much. Is that to say that you can’t use these colors in your interior painting?
Interior Painting Using Complementary Colors
Not at all. In fact, one trend that has carried over from years past is to paint a room with complementing colors on opposing or adjoining walls. So you could paint a wall in a beautiful slate blue, and another wall in a scarlet red, and have them work well together. And your state of residence also has an impact on your paint choices.
For example, the southwest has a wide color palette to chose from. Whether it is the golden red color of sandstone, the olive green of the desert in spring, or the pale blue of the summer sky, there are a wide range of colors to choose. And as your painting contractor we can help you to pick both the colors and finishes you want.
