Posted by Sam Sundeleaf on Friday, December 07, 2018

As a new year rolls around, it’s time to start considering what upgrades you would like to do around the house in 2019. A well painted home will be comfortable, welcoming, and a space where friends and family feel content to sit and stay a while.

Which surfaces look best with a fresh coat of paint? The list is endless, but here’s a closer look at a few popular focal points:

  • Walls

  • Doors

  • Ceilings

  • Closets

  • Baseboard, trim and other moldings

  • Staircases

Choosing the best paint color for your room can be challenging, but also exciting when you fall in love with the perfect shade. Some of our most trusted paint brands have come out with their 2019 color recommendations

Glamour, beauty and balance

Benjamin Moore’s 2019 color of the year, Metropolitan AF, is described as calm, cool and sophisticated. This quiet grey is subtle. The unimposing shade fills any area with a soft, contemporary flair. Whether you use Metropolitan AF in the kitchen for a centering, restorative air, or combine it with the 2019 color palette for a more bold approach in the family room.

Step away from the chaos of the outside world, and into a world of your own. A world filled with sixteen colors designed specifically to allow you to relax, and rejuvenate.  

A nod to the past, while looking towards the future

Since 2016, Farrow & Ball have stayed quiet, not adding to the din and noise of the color community. This year, however, they have unveiled nine new colors. This iconic British paint company has outdone themselves with these new shades. Each new color fits seamlessly in with the 132 other shades they offer.

At quick glance, the colors have a mixed theme. Shadow White, Drop Cloth, and Worsted are soft, refined, and give an air of old fashioned elegance. These colors are classic.

While there is always a place for neutral colors, Farrow & Ball has given us the option of incorporating soft pastels such as Cromarty, and Peignor. Cromarty is the perfect shade. Not too blue, and not too grey. Watch its colors shift and flow, depending on the light in the room.

Go bold with your interior paint palette

These colors, along with Inchyra Blue and Salon Drab, give a nod to the past. A nod to a bygone era, filled with calm sophistication and effortless elegance. However, no color palette would be complete without a few bold accents.

Yearbridge Green is that perfect shade of green. This green gives nod to the rising trend of botanical colors. Uplift any room with this calm, bright green. To complement the vivacity of Yearbridge Green, Vardo offers us a hue of life. This versatile color is vibrant, and complements crisp whites and dark tones.

Each of these nine colors have been designed with a purposeful nod to the past. However, as you look through, you will find that all of the colors will allow each room in your house to pass as effortlessly modern.

As the weather cools down, and you start focusing on interior painting upgrades that need to be done, don’t forget to consider the importance of choosing the right color. Both Farrow & Ball, and Benjamin Moore are well respected paint companies. They have taken the time to design colors that will keep your home feeling modern, while also capturing that ever-elusive feeling of homeyness.
