Colors That Will Make Waves in 2017
The year is more than halfway over, which means that it’s time to discuss what’s hot and what’s not for the following year. Yes, modern home decor ideas and the trending colors for 2017 need to be discussed as early as now.
When it comes to colors, sophisticated hues are set to take center stage. Behr just released their predictions for what to keep and eye on, and the paint company has divided its selection to three palettes—confident, composed, and comfortable—which indicates that everyone will be drawing decor inspiration from different personalities.
The creative, social types will clearly be drawn to the “confident” palette, which is defined by dusky blues, spicy reds, and fresh lime greens, designed to capture attention.
The traditional ones looking for a contemporary space will be set for the “composed” palette, with its earthy greens and taupes.
The introverts who want to create their own space, meanwhile, will love the pastel hues of the “comfortable” palette, with the light pinks, blues, and yellows that make spaces pop.
Many of these shades made their mark this year, so there are already a lot of looks to take inspiration from. Take a look at the rooms below to see why these hues are expected to be the trending colors for 2017.
Trending Colors for 2017
This lovely home proves that blue is better as a color than as a feeling. With the intention of calling the ocean to home, this nautical color is used to highlight ceilings, adding a depth to the room.
Saturated green spaces look even better with the right accents. The orange in this room adds a little pop for when you want a bit of a dramatic flair for your kitchen and dining area.
Using something as bright as lemon yellow can be risky, especially if you decide to paint the color on the floor. But there is no reason to be sad, yellows add a note of happiness to the room, perfect for those with bubbling yellow personalities.
Kick the traditional style up a notch by painting the space a rich color. The dark gray in this room, for instance, is softened, thanks to the textured walls that add a bit of flair to the solemn shade.
Paired with the right accessories, teal and aqua can liven up a minimalist office space.
Earthy Green and Taupe Beige
Taupes and earthy greens are so close to nature that they can create a calming aura for a home. This East Hampton summer home, for instance, makes you feel completely at home and at ease.
If you’re looking to add a bit of flair with pops of color, take a sophisticated powdery blue and pair it with dark wood floors and brass accents to create a comfortable, but dramatic space for when you’re receiving guests in your home.
Rose quartz is here to stay and it’s still very much part of lists of the trending colors for 2017 (and maybe for the next few years too, who knows). The ultra feminine shade of pastel pink accents the natural light coming in a room, making it perfect for a welcoming guest bedroom.
Add a bright accent piece like a soft yellow console or drawer to add energy to an otherwise muted room. A pop of happy color never hurt anyone.
