10 Trending Interior Colors To Use At Home This 2016
Stay Updated With What’s On-Trend This Year
There are always two sides of a trend. Some people say it’s not good to be too trendy because you need to let your unique personality show, regardless of what’s popular. But on the other hand, trends are a great way to get inspiration and go outside of your comfort zone. Trends are a way to find new and creative ideas! So when I look at trends, I always try to strike a balance between being open to change and making sure that I’m staying true to my personal style. When it comes to interior colors, it’s no different. Take a look at this year’s biggest color trends and get all the inspiration you need, but make sure to use colors you genuinely like and want to see at home! Use these interior colors as a stepping stone to creating the home you’ve always wanted.
White is back with a bang this year, regardless of what style your home is. Incorporate this versatile color in everything from modern farmhouse, bohemian, and even traditional design. This white modern bohemian kitchen looks so bright and cheery, doesn’t it?
On the other hand, black is also a trendy color this year. If you’re worried about black being too dark or dreary at home, mix in other neutral interior colors like brown and white. Check out these black and white room ideas for more inspiration!
In previous years, gold was the trendy metal. In others, it was silver. This 2016, it’s copper’s turn! Copper pipes, lighting fixtures, and other accents are very trendy additions to any home.
Ditch the bright yellow this year and go for a warmer, more grown-up shade like ochre. It’s one of those interior colors that work all year ’round!
5. Rose Quartz
This year’s Pantone colors also make for great interior colors. This rose quartz door is so chic, but still homey!
If you’re looking for interior colors to pair with rose quartz, serenity is your best bet. Pink and blue aren’t just for kids’ rooms anymore! Serenity has a grey undertone, so you can definitely use it public spaces like the living or dining room.
7. Warm Orange
Warm orange may be one of those fall interior colors, but it’s also a great way to add a pop of color all year ’round! If you have neutral furniture, orange blends in with earth tones and stands out at the same time.
8. Alabaster White
This year’s Sherwin-Williams color is a shade called Alabaster White. It’s a bit on the cream side, so it’s a calmer alternative to crisp white. Use it for more relaxing spaces like the bedroom or nurseries.
Other warm interior colors you can try out this 2016 include shades of brown like coffee or sand. Brown is a versatile color as well so it fits into a modern or traditional home.
Shades of pink are definitely on-trend this 2016. But if you’re looking for something less common than rose quartz, peach is a more unique alternative. It’s a slightly orange shade of pink that can instantly brighten up a room.
