On Trend: 2016’s Most Popular Paint Colors
When doing an estimate or preparing for a paint job, our painters are often asked the same question: “What paint colors are popular right now, what do you recommend?” Color trends are forever changing and we understand that you want beautiful, timely paint colors for your Arlington, VA home but do not have the time to keep up with what’s in and what’s out.
This is why we have a trained, interior designer, Lisa Reyes, on staff in our design center. She can assist you with choosing paint colors. Lisa can help you figure out which Pinterest links and magazine clippings will work well in your home or business, taking into consideration branding, lighting, personality and cohesive paint color flow. She stays up to date on what’s in and what’s out and brings a wealth of experience to our team and to any paint job she consults on.
We suggest you give Lisa a call to ensure that your paint colors are magazine perfect, but for now, here are six of this year’s hottest paint colors to get your creative gears turning.
We see a lot of customers choosing neutral as their wall paint, and for good reason. Gray is the absolute “in” color family right now and a trend that is not going anywhere anytime soon. "There's no question that gray is the dominant shade of the decade and today's default neutral," says Valspar paint color expert Sue Kim. For a failproof gray try Granite Dust by Valspar.
Pairing well with both traditional and contemporary home decorating ideas, clean white walls are a trend that is holding strong this year. White can be easily showcased with colors in any hue or palette. For those with a more changeable mind, white can be the perfect canvas to offset their bold, bright colors and whimsical patterns. For a white wall paint that will not disappoint, check out Simply White by Benjamin Moore Paint Colors.
With today’s busy lifestyle, many design experts are encouraging tenants and homeowners to bring the outside, in with natural, calming interior paint and home decorating ideas. Blue is a versatile way to do that, as there are an infinite number of blue color options and ways to design around them. For a trendy, energizing blue, check out Olympic’s Blue Cloud.
Peaches and pinks are a fantastic jumping off point for today’s modern, community-oriented home decorating. It sparks conversation and calms the nerves, calling to mind spring flowers and ballet slippers. For a lovely shade of pink, check out Charming Pink by Sherwin Williams Paints.
