Even though I know we're trucking our way through the summer, it's hard to believe that I'm seeing color trends pop up for next year already. But, I love paint colors, so you know if Sherwin Williams gives a color forecast, I'm going to check it out (and share it with you).
There are several color palettes to choose from - plenty to appease any taste or style. There are colors that I love from each palette, but I'll bet you can guess which one I like the best. Pick your favorite!
The colors in the Chrysalis palette are muted and neutral, giving a cool casual vibe. I could see these colors working together in a home with an open floor plan, and love how you can mix and match them so easily.
Roycroft Mist Gray is a beautiful neutral gray/taupe in this palette. I'm guessing this is one of those colors that is really versatile with the changing light of day.
Here it is again in a sunny hallway. Beautiful!
Black Fox is awfully sharp on this accent wall.
The colors in the Voyage palette are bold and rich, and I'm particularly drawn to the blue hues - Seaworthy, Riverway and Watery. Right up my alley.
Riverway is so striking in this office space.
Watery has been out there for awhile, but it's another pretty blue hue, working well with dark and white woodwork.
It gives a totally different vibe in this space, doesn't it? Still, so fresh and pretty.
The colors in the Bouyant palette get a little brighter and more daring.
I could see these colors intermixed in a room, with furniture and fabric. Maybe Sedate Gray, Coral Reef and Cape Verde in a room? A room like this brings these colors to life - beyond just paint.
Here is another home that emulates the colors in the palette, in ways that you might not immediately think of by looking at the colors individually.
You don't need to go crazy with color for it to have an impact. I love this coral island - this kitchen would have a completely different feel to it if it had been painted another color. Add the fun pottery pieces on the open shelving and the teal detail on the lights, and BLAM - it's just fun!
The colors in the Unrestrained palette live up to their name. But again, think of these colors in terms of accessories and fabrics, not just painted walls. If you go just with paint, you immediately think of a circus, right?
See? No circus here.
Sometimes you just need to look at these palettes through a different lens. This room is so sweet, incorporating the white, orange, blue, turquoise and black. But it's soft and sweet, not at all overwhelming.
What do you think? Do you have a favorite? While I love the colors in the Chrysalis palette, I'm certainly drawn to the other palettes when the colors are used in fabrics, artwork and accessories. It's tough to choose just one!
