There are plenty of striking new color collections to see.
Most of the major players in the paint, home décor, and fabric worlds publish an array of exciting new shades as their Color Of The Year. Pantone Color Institute, a world-renowned arbiter of design insight, works on their famous annual palette for 6 to 24 months before identifying today’s most influential colors. This year’s top choice from Pantone is Viva Magenta, a saturated shade of red-meets-pink. The Institute refers to it as “an unconventional shade for an unconventional time.”
Benjamin Moore leans back into the red tones with their Raspberry Blush 2008-30, a surprisingly saturated shade that emboldens a home and provides a certain warmth. It’s a great statement color on walls, trim, or ceiling but can also create a dramatic contrast in smaller applications like painted furniture, throw pillows, or a kitchen island.
Another well-known paint manufacturer has also taken a warm direction with its Terra Rosa, a blend of brown and burgundy. The affect is a rosy but dramatic statement and can be paired with more subtle accents like white and light wood tones.
If you prefer a lighter, brighter neutral, consider Behr’s Blank Canvas. This creamy white shade is a blank slate for harmonizing with neutrals, pastels, or the bolder reds other companies have chosen. It’s a serene color and a far cry from the old-timey sameness of Navajo White.
Leading spray paint manufacturer Krylon spotlights its Spanish Moss, a deep forest green. While greens are emerging as the new white, Spanish Moss is a midnight green with solid connections to nature, forests, and moss. Krylon says it balances warm or cool accents well and pairs well with gold, sandstone, and copper.
You don’t have to paint a whole room to incorporate a color of the year into home décor. There are many ways to add splash on an accent wall, find fabric that uplifts your existing look, or freshen up your look with new towels. Have some fun decorating your brand new 55+ condo at Aventura!
