Wondering what the popular interior paint colors are for 2015? Thinking about repainting your home's interior this spring? Here are the top color picks for 2015 courtesy of the major paint experts themselves:
Benjamin Moore has dubbed Guilford Green as their color of the year. It's a silvery green that's neutral and natural and works well with pretty much everything. It will give any home a natural country feel which goes a long way if you're living in the city. Guilford Green combines and matches nicely with other Benjamin Moore paints like Country Life, White Rock, Shadow Grey and Aloe Vera.
Pantone's top color for 2015 is Marsala, which is similar to the fortified wine called Marsala. It's a rich red with brown and red roots that display a natural earth tone that still exudes sophistication. It's one of those universally appealing colors that would make an excellent feature wall or stand out as a main color in your home.
Sherwin-Williams is going with a color known as Coral Reef. With its mélange of orange, pink and red, Coral Reef will jazz up any space. It's been described as a very versatile paint that will bring your home, vacation home or luxury home to life and bring a noticeable element of warmth to whatever room its used in. With its soft and cool pink hue, Coral Reef will make an outstanding and noticeable feature wall. It goes well with Cotton White, Black Fox along with other floral hues or lush greens. Sedate Gray and Hubbard Squash also pair nicely.
Farrow and Ball have named good old Light Blue as their go-to color for 2015. According to Farrow and Ball themselves, "The use of Light Blue in the home is intended to create an interior where colors shift and change like the landscape. We instinctively gravitate towards colors that remind us of the softer side of life to make our homes into an oasis of calm away from the brashness of modern life." Sounds like a winner!
Paint industry giant Behr has gone back to a color that was popular in the 1990s: Essential Teal. A dominant color, essential teal will really transform a room or an entire house, giving it a Caribbean feel or a very exotic vibe. As Behr says, it "adds a measure of mystery and majesty" in whatever room it's used. It goes well with other CIL colors like Heritage Oak, Seared Gray and Liaison.
Generally speaking CIL has chosen a general palette of colors starting with Blues - mid-toned blues to be precise. Blues like clear sky and sea, or the look of a worn pair of jeans. According to CIL, reds will continue to be popular - berry red to be specific. Also look for toned down oranges - think pumpkins and autumn leaves. Yellows that are bright and vibrant (yellow taxi cab) are also going to be popular this year.
