Interior Design Colors: What’s Trending and What’s Selling

Closet Design

Making a color decision can be tough, whether you’re choosing a new backsplash for your kitchen, replacing the bedding in your guest room or adding a custom closet to your house. You want your home to be your style, but you don’t want to regret the decision in six months. 

Naturally, the internet is here to help. Houzz, Instagram, Pinterest, HGTV and DIY blogs can provide color inspiration and guidance to make your choice a little bit easier.

Color Inspiration from the Design World

It’s become increasingly popular for some paint companies and even color company PANTONE to release their “color of the year”—a trending color that they feel connects with the feeling of the time. It’s a color that then may appear in clothing, artwork and all types of home accessories such as bedding, area rugs, paint colors and objects.

Here are trending colors, according to some brands:

In 2017, the PANTONE color is Greenery, a cheery, spring-like hue.

Benjamin Moore’s 2017 Color of the Year is Shadow, a deep purple-gray.

Behr’s In the Moment is a fresh and soothing “spruce blue.” 

Sherwin-WIlliamsOceanside.jpegSherwin-Williams’ hue is called Oceanside, a deep, moody blue-green.

Paint colors and PANTONE don’t tell the whole story, but they do tell a large part. In addition to wall and accessory colors, trends are emerging with hardware, including matte and chrome. But brushed nickel and oil-rubbed bronze are still as popular as ever.

Choosing Colors 101

Of course, these various colors of the year take into account the fact that paint colors can be changed out relatively easily. Many designers and homeowners choose furniture colors that are more neutral.

When decorating a room, color can play a big role. It can make a room feel warmer or cooler, bigger or smaller and darker or brighter. Color can also add energy or create a sense of calm.

This means that when you’re considering a custom closet, choosing the right color is important. Take into consideration how large or small the room is, how many windows (if any) are present, which other furniture and colors are nearby and what type of lighting will illuminate the room. During your in-home consultation, a Designer can also recommend colors based on your preferences.

The Closet Works’ Customer Favorites

While we don’t proclaim a color of the year here at The Closet Works, we do think a lot about various hues and textures. For example, we’ve recently expanded our options to include over 100 colors, finishes and textures—so you can choose a color that perfectly fits your style and complements other rooms throughout your house.

Our number one seller is white – a blank slate that brightens every room. Our customers love to dress up white with different door styles and hardware—from traditional to modern.

2368-1MDB-P.jpgOne decorative hardware color that’s gaining popularity with our customers is our Modern Bronze knobs and handles.

And for those clients of ours who want an island, vanity or countertop, white complements various countertop choices we offer.
