Paint Color Trends to Watch Out For in 2018

The onset of a new year is the perfect time to reveal paint color trends that will define the year ahead. While 2017 was all about warm neutrals and even tropical green, the upcoming year will be full of edgier hues.  

Make this the year you call an Atlanta painting company to tackle all your painting needs. Keep reading if you need help imagining how these fun colors might play out in your own space.  

Pretty in Pink 

In 2018, expect to see pale pink walls in living rooms. It can be very dynamic when you pair it with contrasting colors. PPG’s Warmstone is a barely-there pale shade of pink. This chic and romantic hue is the perfect neutral for the modern living room.  

Another shade of pink is making its way to the top of popularity list this year. Not as deep as it sounds, California Wine by PPG offers a dramatic touch to your foyer. This bright and vivid option suggests energy and glamour, welcoming guests into your home.  

Red Hot  

Red is the color of passion, but too much of it can give off a feeling of fury. To avoid this mix up, you have to be conscious of using the right shade in the appropriate space in your home. PPG’s warm Red Gumball is a good choice to stir up excitement. It’s inviting, soft nature draws people together and stimulates conversation, perfect for a living or dining room.  

Back in Black 

Black is best in small doses or as an accent. Give your library room the love and attention it needs when you paint it with Black Flame by PPG Paints. The paint company has donned it as the 2018 Color of the Year. This greyish-blue hue will perfectly match your Jane Austen book collection.   

Minimalist Pastels   

Soothing and welcoming, pastels add ambiance and a gentle glow to any room. They range from colors like light lemonade to minty green. If you want something subtle other than the recently popular “greige” color wheel, then pastels are ideal choices.   

Create a spa-inspired environment in your bathroom with Lilac by PPG Paints. It’s the perfect softening counterpart to your stainless-steel faucets. You’ll find yourself retreating to the tub every night for a bit of piece and quiet.
