Paint Color Trends for 2016


Say goodbye to the neutral grays and get ready to say “Om” to the soothing new colors forecast to trend in 2016. When you’re ready to “chill out” with one of these hot, or rather, cool colors, call Handyman Connection of Indianapolis to paint your home’s interior walls.

Our fast-paced, technology-focused lives are in need of some relaxation. There’s no better place to start fostering that relaxation than with the walls that surround you everyday. Begin changing your color in the rooms that evoke rest and relaxation – your bedroom and bathroom.

PPG Paint Brands recently released its color of the year to much fanfare in Pittsburgh. Their color Paradise Found (PPG 1135-5) is an aloe green, a mossy green with a little blue in it and a dark camouflage feel. “It’s a sturdy reassuring color. With all the insecurities in the world, people feel threatened,” said Dee Schlotter, senior color marketing manager at PPG Paints. “Camo has been all over the runways for the past year-and-a-half and in a lot of extreme sportswear. It makes you feel reassured and protected.”

It seems that colors are trending toward softer, soothing off-whites and lighter pastel blues and greens. But for those that need that bold pop of color, all hope is not lost! Look to update a few decorative accessories in a bold palette that complements the new calming color of your walls. This will add impact and style without compromising the overall soothing effect of the room’s wall color.
