You can’t separate color palettes and choices from home design—be it interior or exterior. From choosing wall colors or trims to that perfect throw pillow to accent the living room sofa, color has always been an essential part of your home design decisions, and this year is no different.
While tons of blues and greens are on trend this year, the Pantone Color of the Year goes to Very Peri (aka 17-3938 for you Pantone-Purists out there)—a vibrant purple-blue shade with violet-red undertones.
The Organic Tone Parade Continues With "October Mist"
- October Mist is a soft sage—and the Benjamin Moore Color of the Year. This delicate splash of color can work in your kitchen, den or living room. Or perhaps you’re looking to incorporate some non-neutral furniture like a kitchen island, armoire, or new sofas.
The Muted Cool of "Evergreen Fog" Means Ultra-Chill Vibes
Another popular choice for this year is Evergreen Fog and it’s perfect for interiors and exteriors. Sherwin Williams describes it as “a versatile and calming hue, a chameleon color of gorgeous green-meets-gray, with just a bit of blue.” Whether its new wallpaper, a kitchen cabinet color refresh, or even new housewares, color can drastically change the look of a room.
