In recent years we’ve had millennial pink, forest green and even black touted as the hot new colors for house paint trends.
After all, paint color can make or break your home’s feel. It’s important to get it right when it comes to decorating your biggest investment. That said, life’s too short to play it safe with plain white walls.
With that in mind, here’s your very own 2019 color forecast, with the three hottest house paint trends to look out for next year!
First up on the list of popular 2019 paint colors is cornflower blue. Named after the Eurasian cornflower plant, this shade of blue has a slight hint of lilac, giving it a warmer edge than most shades of blue.
As well as being a great Feng Shui color choice for your office space, blue is a color that people often gravitate towards. Cornflower blue, in particular, is striking enough to demand attention without being overwhelming, especially if you opt for a more muted shade. We’d also recommend sticking to a matte or eggshell sheen to make the color feel more subdued.
This color works well in the hallway, kitchen, or in bathrooms. It’s also great as an accent wall in the bedroom. In terms of furniture and accessories, cornflower blue looks great against a mix of light and dark wooden furniture, tortoiseshell detailing, and brass accents.
Although dove grey is one of 2019’s top paint color trends, this sophisticated shade has true staying-power and will also look great in years to come. As such, it’s a great choice for updating your interiors.
Grey is a soothing color, while the warm undertones of dove grey create a softer, dreamier feel. Dove grey is the perfect muted tone for your bedroom walls, or it will add a luxurious look to a kitchen.
This color also looks great in spacious living rooms, especially against bare wooden floors decorated with souk-style layered rugs.
If the other 2019 colors are too cool for your liking, you’ll be pleased to hear that terracotta is another of next year’s top paint color trends.
Luxurious, warm, and decadent, this shade offers a perfect backdrop for your home, evoking the feel of a desert oasis or a sun-kissed Mediterranean patio. In fact, terracotta will really help bring the outdoors in when it comes to your house interior color schemes.
Terracotta is perfect for a welcoming hallway or a relaxing living room. Stick to matte or flat paint to hide surface imperfections. Add in plenty of greenery, worn leather, and heavy wooden furniture to complete the look.
