Whats Happening With Color This Summer

Whats Happening With Color This Summer

Home owners are not shying away from using more color in their homes. Nearly two-in-three home owners say they would like to add color in their home, particularly in the living and family room, followed by bedroom and bathroom, according to the National Home Design and Color Survey by Sherwin-Williams, a survey of 1,450 home owners.

Seventy-five percent of the home owners surveyed say they believe a room or area needs paint.

What’s more, one in five home owners say they prefer a colorful paint palette, such as rich and dark or bold and bright. So do not be afraid to try a new color, you can always paint over it if you decide to sell and others find it less appealing than you did!

The hottest hues?

One-third of home owners – or about 32 percent – say they prefer color palettes featuring warm neutrals with hints of red, yellow, or brown. Twenty-five percent prefer cool neutrals with hints of blues or greens.

The survey also found some differing color preferences among age groups. For example, home owners 18 to 34 years old tended to say they prefer rich and dark color palettes while those 65 and older tended to prefer soft, light palettes.

You can always go to your local hardware store and browse through the paint colors, or even call a professional decorator to give you some tips on what crazy colors may work in your space! I have always found white rather boring, and like for rooms to “pop” when you walk in. If you are anything like me, you may want to call someone who paints’ for a living to make sure it turns out looking its best!!
