In recent years, the must-have colors for a house have ranged from delicate millennial pink to brooding black.
Nowadays, while no interior design trend is quite as ubiquitous as the aforementioned salmony shade, there are lots of different colors to consider if your walls could do with a refresh. Although, this can make committing to one color a difficult task, to say the least!
To make life easier for you, here 10 amazing shades to consider for your upcoming interior painting project.
Bright jewel colors like jade add character and a burst of happiness to your interior design situation. Although, painting a house a deep hue like jade means you’ll need to use a tinted primer first. Better yet, avoid the hard work and inevitable mistakes by hiring an interior painting service instead.
Like worn terracotta tiles on the floor of a Mediterranean villa, this red-brown hue conjures up relaxation, warmth, and an inviting family atmosphere. Terracotta is especially ideal for large living rooms and pairs well with plants, white wood, and neutrals.
3. Cornflower Blue
While many shades of this primary hue are cool and considered, cornflower blue’s underlying hint of lilac offers added warmth and depth. The result is a cozy, inviting shade that suits everything from lively living rooms to intimate bathrooms.
An interior design favorite in recent years, buttermilk is a soft and creamy shade of peachy yellow that is sure to put a smile on your face. We’re big fans of this color for a rustic kitchen, although it’s great for a tranquil bedroom sanctuary too.
5. Dusky Violet
Dusky violet conjures up images of soft heathers blowing in the breeze or the approaching twilight on a hot summer evening. With a natural beauty that shines through, this elegant color is ideal for bringing comfort and calm to living rooms, halls, and bedrooms.
6. Soft Caramel
Versatile, stylish, and warm – this saturated neutral shade of light brown is far chicer than its sweet and sickly name might suggest. Create a natural, monochrome feel with wood, jute, and rattan, then break up the brown with fresh white accents.
7. Dark Gray
This color may sound gloomy on paper. But in reality, dark gray is the perfect base for toning down colorful couches, decorative rugs, eye-catching wall art, and other bright and breezy accessories.
If you’re thinking of hiring a painting service to take care of all your interior painting needs, opting for a subtle color like linen is a great idea. Somewhere between ivory and beige, this warm yet delicate shade lets your home’s natural light and accessories do the talking.
If you like the idea of Pantone’s ‘Illuminating’ color choice for 2021 but find it a little too bright, mustard is a good compromise. Yellow with a hint of brown, this color exudes class and confidence for a sunny yet sophisticated living room or dining room.
This pinkish-orange hue is perfect for adding fun and frivolity to your home. But, keep things unexpected by using coral in a bathroom, kitchen, or hall, allowing practicality to give way to pleasure for a change.
