Choosing interior colours has now become somewhat of a battle. The myriad of brands and finishes for interior paint has made the task much trickier and confusing to navigate. Luckily, in this article, we will present the trendiest paint colours which will hopefully help you make a better decision.
1. Naval Blue
Naval blue was announced as the Sherwin-Williams 2020 Color of the Year and is now one of the most popular dark blue paint colours. It is a more profound contrast to Benjamin Moore’s Navy blue and can be applied in living rooms, kitchens, and bedrooms. With its classic, bold and cool shades, it can create a soothing and calm environment.
Naval blue is widely used in the kitchen. Why? Because it is a good accent colour that provides a sharp contrast to milky white kitchen countertops and cabinets. However, it is also recommended to use naval blue with natural wood elements as it gives a striking look to wood tones.
Moreover, as naval blue is reminiscent of the night sky, it gives a powerful touch of nature to interiors.
2. Aegean Teal
During the months of lockdown when you have been yearning to go to the beach, Aegean teal was created with the forest and sea in mind. It is a soothing combination of blue, green and gray shades with an organic and natural quality. The hues are reminiscent of vegetable dyes and farmer’s agricultural lands.
Aegean teal is highly recommended for kitchens due to its ability to create a warm space and delicate balance. The way it receives natural light will bring a fresh appeal to the kitchen cabinets. As it can also combine with warm cream and beige colours, Aegean teal can be applied in living rooms and on front doorways.
3. Sap Green
Sap green is a colour that has a strong and powerful resemblance to fresh new leaves. It is noted that this colour was used for nearly a hundred years and is recorded in the works of the Italian painter Cennino Cennini.
Sap green can be combined with bright white colours of the interiors to bring a touch of freshness as it is a reflection of nature and can bring both a soft and creamy atmosphere to your indoors. It can also be applied in the small spaces of your home such as doorways.
4. Crisp White
Crisp white is a colour that tends to be neglected by many. Let me tell you that this is not any old plain white colour but rather a pure and soothing non-reflective white with a little hint of green.
Crisp white can give a sophisticated and smart touch to any of your interior spaces. For instance, crisp white can be applied and can boost the casual elegance of any bedroom.
Coral is a reddish or pinkish hue of orange which was named after the marine invertebrates called corals. It is seen that coral is one of the most comfortable colours that can be used indoors. However, finding the appropriate colour to balance coral can be a real challenge.
For instance, coral and blue are known as complementary colours. They can be used as a perfect combination in the bedroom due to the harmony they bring. Furthermore, coral can be associated with terracotta hues in the living room to set a particular mood and create a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
6. Lavender Mist
Most people tend to think that lavender is more of a feminine colour that cannot be applied to interiors. Not true at all!
Lavender Mist is a collection of saturated and pure colours and a bridge between warm and cool purple shades. Lavender mist can be applied in a child’s room as well as in a formal space. It will create a sophisticated and elegant atmosphere. When used in hallways, it helps to keep and maintain a light and airy atmosphere. Due to its rich and pure hues, the lavender mist can also be applied in dining rooms.
