Likely you’re already thinking about a fresh new look for your Boulder, CO home in the New Year, if so, you’re not alone. Home décor experts have been hard at work forecasting colors you’ll love to decorate with in 2016.
A common theme among color predictors for the upcoming year is the need to create a simplified space where you can unplug from technology and relax.
Sounds good, right? But where do we get started?
Check out these four interior home painting color trends we love for 2016.
Simple white shades are fast overtaking grays as the on-trend neutral for 2016. Featured as both Benjamin Moore’s and Glidden’s upcoming “Color of the Year,” whites are also taking a front seat in Sherwin-Williams and Behr’s 2016 color forecasts.
Pair your favorite neutral with metallic accents for an elegant monochrome look, or contrast with a bright pop of color for a bolder (Boulder ;-)) statement.
Achieve a soothing atmosphere by opting for warmer, muted brights inspired by nature, such as rusted reds, mossy greens and golden yellows. Check out more recommendations from the PANTONEVIEW home + interiors 2016 guide.
Calm blues and greens
A nod to increasing eco consciousness, forest- and ocean-inspired greens and blues continue to gain momentum.
Try Deep Peacock, which Elle Décor predicts will be Pantone’s 2016 “Color of the Year.” Although Pantone won’t announce their
selection until next month, you can’t go wrong with this calming blue-green blend – and it pairs beautifully with 2015’s Marsala. <IMAGE: Simon Upton/Courtesy of Pantone for Elle Décor>
Color forecasts also show soft pastel colors making a comeback in 2016 – particularly with pinks and purples.
Pick your favorite shade and pair with a floral print for a romantic, feminine vibe.
