For the second consecutive year, gray is projected to be the most popular hue for home interiors, according to Debbie Zimmer, spokesperson for the Paint Quality Institute, which issues an annual forecast on color trends.
“Pairing gray with one or more neutral colors – white, off-white, beige, taupe, soft blue, or black – can produce a tranquil color scheme capable of making an indoor space more relaxing,” Zimmer said. “That’s why we so often see these combinations in areas where we seek refuge and comfort, such as bedrooms and family rooms.
“But gray can also serve as an ideal foil for more adventurous color, ranging from saturated hues like purple, fuchsia, rust, and navy to softer tints like dusty pink and pale lavender. Color schemes employing these combinations can be used in virtually any room in the home,” she added.
Since 1989, The Paint Quality Institute has been educating people on the advantages of using quality interior and exterior paints and coatings. The Paint Quality Institute’s goal is to help educate consumers, contractors and designers by providing information on the virtues of quality paint as well as color trends and decorating with paint through a variety of instructional platforms and conferences, and traditional and new media vehicles.
