As 2017 progresses, I am noticing a shift in color trends in the interior decorating and design world. The grays and beiges of last year are definitely still here in full force, but there seems to be a shift in hues. Blushes, golds, coppers, pastel greens, and blues are being added to the mix and I have got to admit, there is a strong feminine touch to this look that I really like. It is elegant, cozy, and delicate in a way, I really couldn’t have anticipated. Look below to see some of the new color trends for 2017 design.
Here Sherwin Williams gives their 2017 Color Forecast. While the grays and beiges are still present, they are becoming more of a background color as more blushes and pastels begin to move in. Neutral is still in, but we want a hint of color back. The shift is moving from bold and bright accents to more soft, healing tones.
I am absolutely crazy about these colors for shiplap! While still white, you will notice subtle hints of blue, green, blush, and yellow to the white colors. I love the tints and think they will be just enough to add intensity to your shiplap walls that will give them appeal and graceful beauty all at the same time.
Blushes, golds, and coppers are most definitely in this season. Mix them with a few soft grays, blacks and whites, along with some fuzzy pillows and throws and you are good to go. I absolutely love these looks from Pottery Barn mixed with these gorgeous Sherwin-Williams paint colors. You really can’t go wrong with any of these design ideas or paint colors for this years trends. The look this year is definitely soft, delicate, and feminine.
Glidden’s color of the year is Byzantine Blue which is paired nicely with whites, blues, aquas, and light yellows. I think this color is a nice rich tone and if you didn’t want it as a full wall color, then it would make a great accent wall for a dining or living area or really anywhere in your home. This is a lovely color which will bring a calming affect to any room.
Benjamin Moore’s Color Palette for 2017 includes rich dark jewel tones mixed with soft, light pastels. I think these color combinations create a powerful contrast which in turn creates a regal affect that leaves you feeling embraced in luxury.
Here Better Homes and Gardens is featuring PPG Pittsburg Paint Colors. These are all neutral grays with subtle hues that will make any home feel like a cozy get away. You really can’t go wrong with any of these colors for this season.
As you can see, the color palette for 2017 is evolving. If you are sick of gray and beige or never liked it in the first place or always felt like something was missing, this year brings in a whole new palette of what is considered, neutral. Play with it, enjoy it, and most of all create something new that is all your own. I can’t wait to see what designs 2017 brings.
