We want to make it easier for you. That’s why we’re outlining the home paint color trends of 2019. Check them out below.

Hunter Greens

Pantone has declared a color called “Night Watch” from PPG as one of their 2019 top paint colors. It’s a dark green color in the hunter family and it’s expected to be huge this year.

Dark greens can evoke sultry and moody feelings. It can also bring in the feeling of lush botanicals and nature, which can liven up any space.

It works well on walls, furniture, and pillows and is also a great gender-neutral color. It can be both masculine and feminine, which makes it very versatile.

As far as usage, use hunter green in well-lit large spaces. In smaller areas, it can be very overpowering.

For the past few years, minimalism has been one of the biggest interior design trends. In many cases, this translated into stark white walls in many homes. That’s still happening, but this year also be on the lookout for warmer variations of this.

One great example of this is off-cream. It falls into the minimalist trend but allows your space to feel a little more friendly, richer, and deeper.

In other words, it’s a great way to make your room feel more inviting while still keeping things super clean and crisp. And if you’re considering painting as part of remodeling your home, you’re not alone. Remodeling is expected to continue to grow from now until 2025.
