Paints colors for this year range from the traditional to new and playful as homeowners look to make a big impact on their living spaces.
“As people try to save money, live in smaller spaces and stay in their homes longer, a need exists for quick and simple do-it-yourself projects to transform and repurpose rooms,” says Erika Woelfel, Director of Color, Behr Paints.
Behr has identified four distinctive trend themes: Boudoir Goth – a modern rendition of Victorian romance, Rock N’ Roll – a fusion of masculinity and rock eclecticism, Tokyo Pop – an explosion of youthful self-expression and Danish Twist – a mixture of northern European simplicity and light. From popping pinks to haunted grays, the expansive range of new colors encourages a sensory experience full of excitement and originality.
Boudoir Goth – Glamorous colors for home entertainment give an edge of dark mystery and over-the-top romance and drama. Curvy shapes and luxurious styling give the allure of feminine mystique.
Rock N’ Roll – Conservative neutrals with masculine styling create a retro vibe that is neither fully classic nor contemporary. Infuse music into a space with vintage guitars or an old record player.
Tokyo Pop – Flirtatious, light-hearted and girly cute, optimistic brights will cheer up any room. Self-express with wall decals or anime posters, helping to highlight a bold personality.
Danish Twist – Whites, neutrals and eco-aware accent colors make modern rooms feel relaxed and clean. Lighten up the kitchen by re-painting cabinets and adding white vases and brushed steel chairs.
