If you’re going to be remodeling your home this year, then you’ll want to pay attention to some of the latest trends in interior design. The color you pick will play a huge part in the overall look and feel of the room—here are some of the top color trends coming up in 2016!
Color of the Year
First of all, one of the clearest indicators of which way the trend is running is Pantone’s Color of the Year. The hue picked for 2015 was Marsala, a shade of wine red with earthy undertones. This flexible color pairs well with a variety of different tones, including warm neutrals, golden yellows, and even turquoise blues. This makes Marsala an excellent accent in a neutral colored bathroom or a great pairing with some more dramatic color schemes. In 2016, Pantone chose Rose Quartz & Serenity. This color combination is much softer and will pair perfectly with darker accents and floors.
Yellow, Green, and Blue
Blues, greens, and yellows are increasingly popular, especially when combined with each other. This works well with bright pastels that play off of each other, but in a confined space like a bathroom, more muted tones will also do the trick. Try going for tile in a subdued blue or pale green, like our Stillwater subway tile collection, combined with pops of brighter colors in a rug or soap dish.
Dark colors are in right now, especially black, dark gray, and navy. This lends a sleek, elegant feel to a bathroom or other space. It’s important not to overdo it, though, or else your bathroom will feel confined and cave-like. Try balancing a dark tile floor with lighter colors on the walls — Rustic Dark Leather is a great choice.
Finally, muted pink is a hot color choice this year. Avoid bright magenta or bubblegum in favor of soft, neutral shades; pinkish beige or gray will add warmth to a room without making it overwhelming. Look for accessories in rose or dusty pink and balance the rest of the room with a less overt hue.
