These will be the hot colors of 2018

January 25 2018

Color can impact the overall mood of your surroundings as well as what potential buyers feel when they step inside your home. The challenge comes in choosing the right combination for your particular space. See what forecasters are predicting and learn how to implement the hot colors of 2018.

Hues to Use
Experts from Pantone, Sherwin Williams and other companies make annual paint color predictions based on global themes. Hues such as BEHR's color of the year, In the Moment, along with its peaceful palette, focus on people's need to unplug from an overconnected world. Similar shades like Equilibrium and Off the Grid also promote a sense of serenity.

The Light and the Dark
Contrasting light and dark colors is a great way to create dynamism in your home decor. The lighter the shade, the more spacious the appearance. If your furniture or flooring is primarily neutral, adding dark colors to the mix can bring balance and help create attractive focal points.

Capitalizing on Color
Our mood is subtly yet consistently influenced by the colors around us. For example, soothing shades such as the powdery blue Casual Day can help you unwind and relax after a long day at work. Conversely, vibrant deep oranges like Civara invigorate and promote an optimistic tone.

Pointers for Color Pops
Both fun and formal spaces are equally enhanced by accents. Whether you use them to highlight a unique architectural feature or tie an area together, the trick is to be strategic. In design, the 60-30-10 rule is a well-known way to bring balance to a room.
