Winter Color Trends 2015/2016

If you have been considering home makeover, take inspiration from seasonal changes to use as your color palette. Crisp, warm orange foliage and sharp, stunning cranberries provide a beautiful backdrop and design encouragement. Paint colors inspired by the Fall and Winter seasons will last a long time and go well with practically any décor.

Benjamin Moore says that several color combinations inspired by the colder seasons are popular with interior designers this year. Mustard yellows and deep browns are paired with icy cream tones, and pear greens are matched with charcoal grays. Brick red and cranberry shades go well when paired with Benjamin Moore’s Soft Chamois(a beautiful creamy beige) and Almost Black.

Stormy looks are popular in paint right now: gray blue, slate gray, wheat beige and silvery whites. Cayenne pepper and cantaloupe go surprisingly well with deep mulled wines and chocolate paint tones. Light turquoise and dark navy shades are now being put together with beeswax yellows and wheat shades.

For 2016, coral and pink are on the trend horizon, along with deep bronze and sea foam greens. Plum is still forecast to be big color in interior design next year, with a focus on grayish, dark purples. Now is the time for exploration with paint colors, both exterior and interior, so do not be afraid to take chances. Your walls make a huge difference in the overall design of your home, so pick colors that you really love, and we will do the rest.
