2019 home colour trends are not for the faint hearted. They’re bright, bold, and a little risky. But at least we might be inspired to be a bit more daring with our colour choices. Colours and light affect our mood significantly, creating a compelling case for you to move from dull, drab walls to something exciting. Surrounding yourself in fresh, beautiful hues will ensure you stay energetic and charged through the day. It will also give you something to show off to your guests and enjoy as you spend some quality time at home. But do you know what colours are popular? We bring you the Top 10 trending wall paint colours you can use in your home.
While last year was all about ravishing reds and glittering metallics, this year, the designers claim that walls will be ruled by more mindful, personality and lifestyle-based colours. It’s out with the blush and in with the new, as homes prepare themselves for a whole stack of new tones. Let’s dive in deeper and see if you fancy any…
Eternally ours, the Whites
While white might seem so yesterday, but it’s always going to remain popular. Standing strong amongst its colourful counterparts, white still tops the list when it comes to classic wall paint colours. It serves as the perfect backdrop for any design style and it is very easy to work with this colour. White is also the preferred choice for compact spaces owing to its ability to make a space seem larger. We absolutely love the effect white has on the senses – soothing, calming and refreshing. Whites go so well with wood trims. It is the best colour choice with light wood trim, as it’s natural, fresh and a beautiful light backdrop for life. White even works with dark wood trim; it will be high contrast, but that’s a modern look that can work if you dig that kind of thing. And you can soften the contrast with layers like curtains, rugs, pillows and artwork.
Join the Navy Cult
This year, designers are embracing more dark and saturated colours. Dark and moody, this colour seems to be debuting in home design and we only expect it to get more popular over this year. This delectable colour is suitable for rooms with abundant natural light and can be used with complementary tones to make the room brighter. Think of this colour as a canvas for decor and work it! Blue pairs well with wooden furniture and undertone colours. A room can bloom with a combination of blue and white with pops of teal.
Forest Ranger Green
If you’ve been yearning for greens to dominate again, the time is now. It’s happening, and this is not a drill. Sage green is going to be a huge one. And I do hope it inspires you to grab a tin of paint and go crazy with it in a room of your home. The tasteful hue of green is sure to set an eclectic setting at home. With greenery being a big trend this year, green can be used as a neutral or statement accent for walls. This gender-neutral colour is the perfect choice for people who do not want their home to feel extreme. Rich, luxurious, and classic shade of green is so popular for its ability to allow homeowners to emulate the feeling of lush greenery and the healing power of nature in their spaces. Mixed with lighter wood tones and white trim, helps balance these dark colours from overpowering a space. A good choice to maintain continuity in interiors, this green is an unconventional choice, but pairs well with the pink and brown.
Pale the Pink
For those with wanderlust and an earthy spirit, a soft shade like blush pink is a great alternative to beige and brown. You can also try a shade of soft clay for that muted elegance. Mix it with an abundance of white to get a perfect mix. This wall paint colour is very compatible with other hues and promises to ease the senses at the end of a tiring day.
Crushing on the Corals
Dunk your walls in this sumptuous shade if you love an eclectic and rich vibe. See a whole host of warm pink-meets-orange tones hitting the home walls. The softness of this shade makes it apt for your master bedroom or even guest room. If you want to be even bolder, try a coral feature wall. It would work well in a home with light timber floorboards or carpet. Tone down the intensity with some white moments against the wall and place some lush green plants in the mix and you’re set: a coral fantasy becomes reality! Get your hands on this colour while we crush on it.
Royalty in Purple
Amidst all the dark colours, how can this beautiful shade of purple fall behind? Perfect for creating an accent wall with pretty patterns, this colour brings out the beauty of designs. Go matte or satin, whatever you prefer, but make sure you make good use of this eye-catchy trend.
Dual benefits in Blue-grey
Another neutral colour, this muted shade of blue sports grey undertones. If you do not want pure white walls, but are afraid of embracing rich, dark colours, then this is perfect for you. For those of you who like to play it safe, this colour can be used in any room with ease to create a soothing ambience. You can use all these colours as accent walls alone if you don’t want the room to be overwhelmed. This blue works well for small and big spaces alike!
All Cheery Yellow
This year, we are going to see a rise in colours that are associated with optimism, positivity and happiness. For those who love to introduce a pop of colour in their interiors, this is one of those wall paint colours that are just right. This colour highlights decor and art brilliantly, without a lot of effort. Staying within a colour family is an easy way to create a harmonious colour scheme. This muted yellow wall is a great choice for the bedroom. Paired with a pretty pink, it turns the room into an inviting space.
Be Neutral, be Grey
Pale greys and frothy neutrals converge in the perfect way to create a soft ambience at home. An easy colour to embrace, this is definitely something that everyone can accept. You can add some fuschia or teal as a pop of colour. Pale greys and frothy pinks converge in a soft haze that soothes the senses. If you’re a person who loves muted colours, this is a match made in heaven. It’s cool and classy for the living room.
You now have an array of colours to take to your painter for your next renovation. Whether you love creating a statement with dark hues or want to feel calm within serene walls, embrace these popular shades recommended by designers.
