Just like in the fashion world, every industry follows trends that change annually.
In the interior design world, one of the trends people wait for is the newest “in” colours for paint. It seems each designer has a different take or opinion about if these colours are really the hot ones for the year, but nonetheless, these are the official picks for 2014.
This year, the neutral palette is the official top choice. Luckily, this palette has a variety of colours and shades that are sure to satisfy even the pickiest of paint choosers. This palette, which includes about 60 shades, is rich and warm as opposed to stark and bright. It includes everything from soft pinks and lavenders, greys, beiges, greens and blues, to deeper hues of pinks, blues, purple, taupe, even black satin colours.
The beauty of this pallete is that once you see it, you don’t have to be a design genius to decide what to put on your walls if you are looking for multiple colours or an accent wall. This is because they all match well together because of their soft and subtle hues, so you can pick what you like based on your personal preference without fear that it will look bad.
Paint colours are supposed to inspire you and uplift a room, so if you like one of these “trendy” paint colours but not 100 per cent, you can compromise and choose a shade that’s close to it, and more to your vision for your room.
Remember: trends are subjective and fleeting, so just because it may be in this year, it may not be the next year. Always make sure you’re going to like your paint colour choices long after the trend has disappeared.
