Over the course of the years, the color schemes that people use to decorate their interiors will change. This, as with many other trends, is simply a part of the change in attitudes as life goes on. However, if you want to make sure that your buildings are looking spectacular on the inside, it might help you to understand where 2019’s color trends are going so that you can get any redecoration needs in.
In the grand scheme of 2019 and the millions of buildings that have been repainted to match the color trends, there has been a general lean toward lifestyle-based shades and mindful hues. What this means is that softer, smoother colors have been preferred in 2019, compared to the sharp and edgy colors of 2018. There are two main categories of trends that you will see as you browse through 2019’s most popular color trends. As with many things in painting, there are the darks and the lights with little in between.
The Lighter Colors of 2019
In 2019, there are many ways that lighter, softer, and more inviting colors have been incorporated into interior paint jobs. Coral has been a massive color in 2019, even being named Pantone’s 2019 Color of the Year, though that was specifically the color “Living Coral”. With that being said, light pinks, corals, and oranges tend to leave an energizing atmosphere in just about any building.
Similarly, pastel pinks have played a large role in 2019’s color trends, taking the energy from the coral hues and turning it into something soft and relaxing. With whites and yellows inside a pastel pink room, it can almost feel as if a room is an entrance to a fairytale world.
And then, at the extreme end of the lighter colors, there are off-creams and almost-whites. While they are not quite pure white walls, which is something that is generally not preferred, the small amount of color in these walls is enough to create personality in your building. An almost-white palette with a touch of color here and there can create a wonderful, classic atmosphere, although if you are looking for something less minimalistic, you can go with an off-cream scheme.
The Darker Colors of 2019
There are several different variants to 2019’s trends in dark colors as well. From deep purples to forest greens, you can lose yourself in the depth of these colors. Woodland shades are wonderful for a 2019 trend as they tend to be medium and allow for a lot of customization with furniture, although there are some people who might want more color than a woody brown.
Hunter green is an amazing color that is almost timeless in a sense. Its deep hues go well with many neutral colors, making it easy for you to design a house with these colors; better yet, there is almost complete gender neutrality with green, meaning that everyone can feel peaceful in such a room.
And finally, there are the blues and purples. These tend to be the richest and most saturated colors, although they lean closer to the moody end of things. With the deep colors in the walls, this allows you the opportunity to really make your furniture pop out in the room, which is something that many people can appreciate, especially with themed rooms that have an abundance of natural lighting.
