The 2017 Paint Colors of the Year
The 2017 paint colors of the year, according to painting companies, have been out for a few months now. Have you had a chance to check them out yet? If not, then here is a run down of the colors chosen by the most popular paint brands on the market.
Sherwin Williams’ pick this year is a great choice for anyone looking for a neutral color, who are tired of the cool gray tones that have been widely used the past few years. This timeless neutral is modern, classic and a beautiful balance of warm and cool. It pairs well with various colors and is the perfect canvas for accent pieces to stand out.
“Our story of taupe is simple. Earthen brown combines with conservative grey and the result is a weathered, woodsy and complex neutral that celebrates the imperfections and authenticity of a well-lived life.” – Sherwin Williams
Benjamin Moore’s pick is a bit more mysterious and moody. This rich, royal amethyst can surely transform any room. This deep color can easily turn a space dark and gloomy though, so it should probable be used in small areas or rooms that are not frequently used.
“It is a color that calls to mind a ‘past’, yet it can also make a contemporary, color-confident statement.” – Ellen O’Neill, Benjamin Moore Creative Director
PPG Paints’ selection is also a purple-gray hue but much lighter and cooler than Benjamin Moore’s Shadow. It gives a very peaceful and soothing feeling to the space and it’s a great choice for bedrooms or sitting rooms.
“Violet Verbena is a gray-purple hue that idealizes the popular bohemian, ‘gypset’ lifestyle. This nuanced update on a classic shade adds depth, luxury and pampering to every space, making it the perfect backdrop for consumers looking to blend the masculine, the feminine, the mystic and the modern.”
It’s important to remember that homeowners are not expected to change the whole color scheme of their homes with every year’s color trends. These colors are only meant to give you an idea of the colors that are popular at the moment. It also makes finding furniture pieces and decorative accents that coordinate with these hues a breeze because they are trending. If you are thinking about changing your home’s color scheme, then it is always a good idea to look at the colors trending for some inspiration.
