Long story short, let’s take a glimpse at these 2017 color trends and be inspired with us!



1. Pastel Pink

If you’re a huge fan of pink, paint your bedroom, living room or even bathroom with pastel pink which is super feminine and sophisticated. Think that pink is meant for little girls or teen girls? Opt for  a muted shade of pink or dusty pink for a grown-up version of pink. Pair with anything white, black or gray to achieve that modern and sophisticated look. Or, you can team this color with striking pink or green plants for a greater contrast.

2. Dusky Blue

Gone are the days of the modern homes in monotonous beige, white and gray wall paints. It’s about time to add a flair of dynamic, bold hues to your home with dusky blue to express your personality and style! Calming, relaxing, and tranquil, dusky blue can be a great option to be used in bedrooms and living rooms. If you’re painting your living room with this color, opt for a same color scheme couch in sensational blue with vibrant throw pillows to create an uplifting atmosphere. Else, choosing a bold couch in dark green color and velvet fabric is also an excellent idea to make it a focal point in the room. Add some modern white imagery or minimalist round mirror accented with metallic frame to the wall for an interesting display.

3. Mineral Gray

If you’re tired of soft and neutral wall colors, walk down the daring path by painting your walls dark gray! It is sophisticated, modern, eclectic and classy that will give your interior a touch of flair. In color psychology, gray represents calm and safe, which is why you should definitely paint your home gray this coming 2017. If you’ve decided to paint your home gray, always go for a textured wall for your bedroom or glossy effect for a plain wall that is well suited for your living room. This will help you to achieve that sophisticated and elegant space with a dramatic effect.

4. Light Blue-green 

An enigmatic shade that ranges between green and blue color, this aqua color (or technically defined as “light blue-green color”) is often associated with the blue ocean, clear lakes, or even swimming pools.

Nothing feels more comfortable and relaxing than a light blue-green wall that can remind us of the summers on the beach. While this pretty hue makes a wonderful backdrop for layering and to complement other colors in furniture and design, it makes people feel calm and serene as if we’re on a beach vacation with crystal blue waters and ice cold drinks. To easily pull off the light blue-green accent wall, team it with white furniture or ceiling to create an enticing, clean palette. To take things up a notch, you can pair the accent wall with striking color sofas, vibrant wall displays or dark-hued door to create a playful twist.

5. Dusky Magenta

Considering dusky magenta is paint color that is bold, striking and uncommon among households, this color is greatly suitable for people who work in the creative industry and are not afraid of expressing themselves in an audacious manner.

Before I start introducing this color, let me share a fun fact about this mysterious web color. Magenta is often associated with Fuschia because they both are essentially the same color, except that magenta is technically more red-toned and fuchsia more purple. And Magenta is named after the battle of Magenta, that happened near the Italian town of that name.

So facts aside, dusky magenta is actually a reddish-purple but in a darker range. You can consider painting this luxurious color in your living room, bedroom, kitchen room or even bathroom for a modern living home style. To create a more sophisticated vibe, team it with fun gold accessories such as a vintage gilded mirror, gold-tone wall art, or crystal gold chandelier for a dash of elegance.

Bold walls can look pretty amazing in small spaces such as this five star bathroom with eccentric vibes. The gold-framed vintage mirror makes the bathroom look extremely sophisticated.

6. Robust Teal

The teal color is a mix of both blue and green but in a darker and richer tone. Darker tones of teal evoke images of the peacock feather, the sea, and the tropics. Lavish and majestic, this color is super versatile it works perfectly with almost any style, ranging from traditional to contemporary settings. Hence, give your home a touch of flair with a robust teal accent wall which will make your guest wow the moment they step into the door. Make the color pops with crisp white furnishing or pairs it with complementary colors such as coral, navy, and pink accessories. Also, you can never go wrong with anything gold against a dark teal wall.
