The new year has come and brings all kinds of new trends in interior design. Today, however, we focus exclusively on color. Every year, color giants such as Behr and Sherwin-Williams release their top choices, the colors of which will soon be everywhere. From their wide selection we have chosen the 2019 color trends that we think are most likely to rise and explain how to use them. Read below to stay ahead of the curve.
Dark green colors
Recently, the dark green tint with the name “Night Watch” got the honor to be the color of the year of PPG. According to a senior marketing manager at PPG, this color has been chosen because “the restorative power of nature is now more important than ever in society.” Night watch is about bringing color to the healing power from the outside to the inside. ”
We did not agree with that anymore. We have increasingly seen the nature-inspired decor of our interiors. From taking live plants to embracing the jungle trend, we can not get enough of it. That is why we think that there are dark green shades this year.
When it comes to using this shade at home, embracing dark green colors has everything to do with creating a bold look. Combine it with darker neutral colors such as black and brown or opt for an even more trendy style and take some jewelery. Choose hot metals such as copper or gold to create a sense of contrast.
For years, the cheeky Millennial Pink graced us with his presence. It was almost impossible to see without a scandi inspired interior. 2019, however, is all about change. Nowadays we see that the clear, almost bubblegum shades of Millennial Pink are replaced by a more subdued, timeless version. It’s time to say hello to dusty pinks.
This year, as part of their Colormix Color Forecast, Sherwin-Williams released 42 trend-forward shades covering six unique color palettes. Dusty pink shades occurred on three of them. For us that is enough indication that this color will soon be everywhere.
This color is a beautiful accent hue. Use it in an accent wall, a piece of furniture or a few pillows. You can maximize the color by combining it with a lot of white, which gives your design a sense of contrast. Alternatively, you can go a bit more playful and round off the look by using much richer red or light blue colors.
Since the age of gray – everything is finally coming to an end, it is time to call in a new neutral conductor to take his place. Enter warm creams. This group of colors is especially exciting because it offers the perfect middle way. It is less grim than the completely white interiors that we have used to see in combination with modern aesthetics, but it is less expected than a traditional brown tint.
Benjamin Moore & # 39; s color trends for 2019 have two different cream-colored shades: “Cloud White” and “Balboa Mist.” With only 15 colors in total that is not a bad percentage. We suspect, however, that this is only the beginning of seeing warm creams that pop up everywhere.
The use of this color has everything to do with adding a sense of warmth and serenity to the room. Remember to combine it with warm neutral colors such as brown and brown. Serene blues and earth tones on earth are also a good match. In this case, you should stay away from colors that feel hard and choose more muted versions.
Our latest trend for the 2019 trend is for medium-sized blue tones. This comes from Behr, who called a shade “Blueprint”, their 2019 color of the year. Erika Woelfel, vice president of color and creative services at Behr, commented on the choice: “Like the sketches that builders trust to bring an architectural design to life, Blueprint S470-5 provides a foundation for consumers to create their unique vision Reality: this universally attractive tint creates a steady stream of positivity and is ready to become an instant classic in the coming years. ”
We love “Blueprint” and shades like it – because they are incredibly versatile. On the one hand, like marine, a medium blue can be used as a neutral shade. It can withstand bold colors such as vivid red and yellow colors. On the other hand, a mediocre blue tint can also be an accent color. It can be a pop of visual interest that evokes an otherwise neutral design.
