February 2018 Color predictions for this year’s remodel

If you’re planning to refresh one or more of your home’s rooms this year, be sure to check out these 2018 Colors of the Year from some popular paint brands - especially if you plan to buy new furniture or add some decorative items as well.

Sherwin-Williams has done all your homework for you! In addition to their 2018 Color of the Year, they’ve introduced three contemporary Colormix® palettes: Unity, Connectivity, and Sincerity. Each one contains 12 colors, and are inspired by today’s lifestyle culture and tech progress. Check them out here.

The company’s Color of the Year – Oceanside – is a deep teal blue with a hint of green. Since blue and green are calming colors, this could be an ideal color for a home office. If the room’s size requires a lighter color for the walls, Oceanside can be used for contrast.

If you’re looking for a new shade of blue for your home but need a lighter color than Oceanside, check out Behr’s Color of the Year. In the Moment is a cool, tranquil, spruce blue with touches of gray and green. It works equally well inside or outside your home.

Want to spice up a den or dining area, or simply feeling adventurous? Benjamin Moore’s Color of the Year is Caliente, a rich, dark red. It also works well as a contrast wall. Check out Caliente and its entire collection of contrast colors here.

If you can take a picture of it, you can match it

If you’ve ever searched in vain for paint that precisely matches the color of a favorite item, download the ColorSnap® Visualizer app for iPhone and Android phones. After you take a photo of the object you want to match, ColorSnap will identify one or more of the colors with a corresponding Sherwin-Williams paint color. ColorSnap can also match colors from a smartphone’s Pinterest app.
