2016 Paint Color Trends

Trendy colors and how to make them work in your home.

NATURAL

Organic, Earthy Colors

The Natural trend celebrates the unique beauty in elements, materials and finishes that had previously been considered ‘flawed’ and highlights nature’s inviting colors, like warm Mushroom Cap and welcoming Soft Mulberry Mauve. Incorporate re-purposed or handmade pieces with this palette. Introduce hand-crafted finishes such as hammered, punched or machined techniques, along with natural elements such as various woods, granite and raw material-like surfaces into your decor.
