8-25-2015-paint-trends.jpgOne of the easiest and inexpensive design trends to accomplish with your new custom home is tying in the latest color trends. Whether you are choosing the exterior colors for a new construction home in The Northwest or deciding on a color palette for your interior walls, furniture and upholstery, the key is to achieve a timeless look that isn’t too bland. When selling a home, the rule is to go neutral. When moving into your custom home, the secret is to go bold and express confidence with colors that make you feel good. According to a recent piece by chron.com, an all-white color theme works well as long as you dial-up personality. Add color in the form of colorful appliances, décor and furniture.

Keeping it cool

The color trends this year are getting away from the earthy blues and browns and gravitating toward cool tones such as gray and white. An article by realtytoday.com points out a white décor gives a home a simple and crisp, clean appearance. In keeping with the monochromatic pale theme, consider blond wood furniture and sheepskin throw pillows.

Staying on trend

When it comes to interior paint choices, you don’t need to worry too much about what’s on trend versus what’s just trendy and will fade out of fashion in less than two years. Because paint is relatively inexpensive, it does not cost a lot to paint over any decorating faux pas. On the other hand, you can spend too much on trendy furniture that is much more expensive to change out if you grow tired of an unusual color.

Expressing your personality

Different colors affect people who live in a home. The psychology of color indicates a person feels soothed by blues, but energized by reds and yellows. Some people believe purple inspires creativity. According to a story by realtormag.com, some of the hot housing trends this year include using sophisticated coral shades for an accent. Bright colors pair well with the crisp whites and grays. Other color trends include painting rooms in violet, lilac and green.
