The holiday season is fast approaching, and before we know it, it will be 2017. With the New Year comes change, and that includes changes in your home. There’s no better time to start thinking about updating your space, including wall colors and kitchen design ideas. After all, the kitchen is the place to gather with family and friends in November, December, and January. In anticipation of the upcoming holiday season and New Year, let’s talk about the top interior design color trends that are in our future.
There’s something about yellow that just feels happy. We don’t mean the Harvest Gold yellow that was popular in 1971. The yellow of 2017 is buttery and creamy. The key is to find that perfect tone that’s not too bright (and jarring), yet not too pale (and boring). Try Butter by Pittsburgh Paints in the foyer, or in the kitchen paired with white cabinetry.
Red is another popular choice in the kitchen, especially when paired with dark kitchen cabinets. A little red goes a long way. Go bold with a spicy color on an accent wall, or opt for gorgeous Roosevelt Red kitchen cabinetry from Willow Lane. If all red cabinets seems intimidating to you, kitchen island trends lean toward mixing and matching, so be creative!
If you are looking to bring a bit of nature indoors, earthy greens are the trendy new neutral. Light greens with gray undertones create a calming vibe in a bedroom. We like Recycled Glass by Sherwin Williams or Raintree Green by Benjamin Moore.
Imagine cool gray and warm beige had a baby, and you get beautiful, balanced taupe. This elegant neutral is often referred to as Greige and has been on the rise for the past year. Look for it on living room walls, and wood furniture. Sherwin Williams recently selected Poised Taupe for it’s 2017 Color of the Year.
Pittsburgh Paints went a different direction with their 2017 Color of the Year. Violet Verbena is a moody purple-gray that feels sophisticated yet bohemian. Don’t be afraid to be daring and dramatic! According to a recent study by Zillow, purple is the most popular dining room color.
Blue never goes out of style, but dusky shades are right on trend for 2017. These shades bring to mind the color of the sky at dusk, or the deep, nautical blue of the ocean. A dusky hue like Dockside Blue by Sherwin Williams would look stunning in a master bathroom when paired with crisp white.
Green-blue shades like teal and aqua add a touch of serene whimsy to the home. We like Tidewater by Sherwin Williams or Waterslide by Benjamin Moore. These spa-like hues are perfect for a laundry room or powder room. Or pair them with dark hardwood floors in the living room.
Cool gray tones like Fog by Pittsburgh Paints are hot for 2017! Light gray compliments any color or style of décor, and work beautifully in most any room. No wonder it has surpassed white as the go-to neutral. Gray is also quickly becoming a favorite kitchen cabinet color, such as Society Shaker Dove Gray or Roosevelt Steel Gray by Willow Lane Cabinetry.
Don’t let your home be stuck in the past. Resolve to make a change for the better with the color trends that will define 2017!
