Are you thinking about repainting your home this year? If so, then you should consider choosing some of the paint colors that are guaranteed to be “in” during 2013. Below, we have listed some of the shades that are sure to be popular this year, along with the reasons why so many people are choosing them as their go-to hues for 2013.
Grays and Dark Greens
No matter what the year is, gray is always a great choice for walls in your home. Gray is both timeless and modern, and depending on the shade that you choose for your home, it can be either dark and relaxing, or light and inviting. Pairing gray with a dark forest green will give your room a nice shot of earth tones, and will make your decorating scheme seem stylish, yet organic and at ease. This color combination is great for rooms where you want to unwind and enjoy yourself, or simply sit and think.
Rust Red, Warm Yellow, Faded Green
Any combination of these three colors will be ideal for rooms that you want to evoke feelings of comfort and familial intimacy. These colors are especially popular in kitchens, dining rooms, and great rooms because of the way they complement the palettes of many traditional American dishes. As with the set of shades described above, these three colors allow you to create an aesthetic that is contemporary but will stand up well against the test of time. Consider an accent wall or “nook” in one color and surround it with another.
Weathered Blue and Off-White
These two colors are wonderfully relaxing, but also bright enough to take full advantage of the light in rooms that receive only limited sunlight. Many homeowners like the weathered blue for the way it reminds them of the ocean, while the off-white is reminiscent of a long stretch of sand by the shoreline. This color scheme is good for those who want earth tones in their homes, but do not want to use darker shades, like deep reds, forest greens, and browns. It is easy to punch up this décor with bits of accent colors like aqua, tangerine, soft pink or plum. And as with both color sets mentioned previously, these two colors will work well no matter what other decorations you have in your home, now or in the future.
