Choosing a color for your home can be both fun and a little stressful. Not only do you want it to be a color you’ll love for years to come, but you also want it to match your other home decor. According Home made, you should choose your paint color based on your decor rather than the other way around because it is easier to choose from a selection of paints than to find a decor that matches a specific shade. You should also keep in mind the shades, reflections of the paint and the room itself.
Trend colors of the year from a variety of brands mostly belong to the green family. These soothing natural hues are quickly becoming new favorites in living rooms, kitchens and bedrooms. Other natural shades are also growing in popularity, such as soft blues, terracottas and pinks that offer color without being too bright or overwhelming. People love the relaxed feel these colors bring to a room and even to accent and fixture pieces like built-in shelves and kitchen cabinets. Of course, neutrals are always in style. But paint trends are moving away from stark whites and grays towards warmer whites and tans. Moody blacks and charcoals are also becoming popular paint choices. All of these colors seem to complement each other, creating a casual, colorful but not bright and relaxed color palette for a home.
