2017 Color Trends

Trend: a general direction in which something is developing or changing.

There are trends for everything; fashion, entertainment, and even home design. Color trends and the use of color can’t be ignored when it comes to the place we spend majority of our time, our home. Colors can dramatically enhance the emotion of a room, can be a subtle influence on your lifestyle, and be the focus of conversation.

Each year experts from paint companies, professional interior designers, and home magazines predict what the hot colors will be based upon influences such as art, politics, nature, and influential people in design and architecture. In 2016, a popular color prediction was white and we saw it everywhere and for good reason. From the lack of color on your walls to your marble and marble look countertops, white never fails to look clean and become a color enhancer to let other more colorful statement pieces stand out.

So, what’s predicted for 2017? Let’s take a look.


While some think of Sherwin-Williams as just a paint company, it is one of the most influential players that designers rely on for creative touches and new ideas. This year the people at Sherwin-Williams have given us four color palettes to represent the new year of 2017.

Noir – A rich, bold color palette with colors like Cascade green that brings the night into your home.



Holistic – This palette is the perfect combination of pastels and dark shades using colors like Deep Forest Brown and Mountain Air blue.



Intrepid – Where bold meets bright, Kimono Violet and Citronella yellow are two colors that look odd apart, but put together create a beautiful color scheme.



Unbounded – Take a trip around the world with these colors that represent some of the most beautiful things, with colors like Bee yellow and Freshwater blue.
