THESE ARE THE COLORS
EVERYONE WILL BE TALKING
ABOUT IN 2017
Next year, interior designers will be drawing inspiration from your personality.
It's now 2017, which means one thing: It's time to discuss which home decor trends will define the year.
On the color front, sophisticated hues are poised to take center stage, according to Behr, which has predictions for colors to
keep an eye on in 2017. The paint company has divided its selections into three palettes — Confident, Composed, and Comfortable —
and if they are any indication, we'll be drawing decor inspiration from our personalities in the year ahead.
Creative, social types will be drawn to the Confident palette, defined by dusky blues, spicy reds, and lime greens, designed to captivate your
attention. Then there's the Composed palette. Its earthy greens and taupes will be a go-to for traditionalists looking to create a contemporary space.
And it's all about pale pastels in the Comfortable range, characterized by light pinks, blues, and yellows that make the smallest of spaces pop. Its
muted shades are ideal for introverts who want to make their first foray into accent colors.
We've already seen some of these shades make waves this year, so if you need some help imagining how they might play out in your own space, look no
further than 9 rooms below. It's easy to see why we'll be obsessed with them well into 2017.
CONFIDENT: DUSKY BLUE
This Hamptons home proves that feeling blue doesn't have to be a bad thing. Intended to recall the colors of the ocean, the beachy shade
used here highlights the home's high ceilings.
