Take your time and don’t feel rushed to pick a color:
Don’t place paint swatches next to each other- rather paint each color on separate walls. Patrick O’Donnell, international brand ambassador at Farrow and Ball and an expert in paint colors, recommends separating colors because it can become too difficult to determine which color is best when they are too close together. Once you’ve painted the color swatches, wait 24 to 48 hours before making a judgment on the color. You will want to see the colors during the day and at night.
Incorporating 2023 color trends into your home:
These suggestions will help you to incorporate fresh paint colors into your home this year.
Shades of yellow have become increasingly popular for interiors and they can be used for almost any type of room style- modern, glam or traditional. Yellow is also great for rooms without windows. Soft yellows incorporated with neutrals and accents of blues and green can add even more dimension.
Blue is the most loved color in the world so it’s no surprise that it’s a trending interior paint color. The color blue brings depth and dimension to any room and is a good contrast to earth tone colors and materials. Design professionals expect brighter blue hues like cobalt and electric blue, as well as more subdued blues like midnight and navy to be increasingly popular.
Green goes well with natural colors and materials and stone and tile are a fantastic complement to a variety of gray shades. Also considered to be one of the best neutrals, gray is a perfect option for someone wanting a more subdued color palette.
Since hazelnut is a darker shade of a neutral beige, designers recommend that using this color is best as a background color. In fact hazelnut has become the adoptive neutral color.
