Now that spring has sprung, many people are dusting off the roller and paint brush and giving their home a shiny, new interior coat of paint. However, it's not easy deciding what colour to use or even what colours are in style for 2017. Fret not. We have sourced through mountains of information to bring you five of the hottest spring colours for painting your home this year. You'll find greens and moody blues are on the forefront for 2017. Hopefully you see a paint colour that you love!
Inchyra Blue (Farrow & Ball)
Part of the moody blue and green group, Inchyra Blue looks fantastic with white and dark wood, while giving off a regal feeling. This aged blue grey is inspired by the dramatic Scottish skies that act as a backdrop for the classic Georgian Inchyra House. It can be found on the exterior doors of their very impressive byre or barn which nestles at the bottom of a rather grey and imposing hillside. This moody hue can read more grey, blue or even green depending on the type of light. A great alternative to charcoal, use it to inject a hint of colour into a super contemporary home or create a dark and intimate feel by combining it with Black Blue or Vardo.
Hinting Blue (Sherwin williams)
A light baby blue that isn't only for nurseries anymore. It's super in a master bedroom, especially against a white ceiling or dark grey woods and won't overwhelm your space like other blues tend to do (see below).
Saybrook Sage (Benjamin Moore)
It's a dusky green with a timeless quality that will bring some sophistication to whatever room you decide to use it in. Steeped in tradition, the refined, elegant colors of the Historical Collection deliver a timeless color that can be used in traditional as well as contemporary spaces. The color shows fairly dark in the Ben Moore fan deck, but as you can see below, the brighter the room, the lighter the color will look as you can see from the picture below.
Icy Spring Violet (CIL)
This fantastic pale purple may not be the warmest colour, but it will make any functional room (think mudroom) look amazing when it's paired with a cream or black.
Pink Quartz (Behr)
It's a brave colour that's got a foothold in the trend department. It's not for everyone, but if you don't mind shaking it up from the norm, give Pink Quartz a try because it will look fabulous.
