The Colors of the Year are jewel tones and blacks! Shaking up the all-white and neutrals of past years, think English library with peacock teal, burnt orange or rich black trim. Use it on feature wall, sofa and accessories to brighten up your home interiors. 

The most popular paint companies have published their picks for 2018! 

Sherwin-Williams’ 2018 Color of the Year (Oceanside SW 6496) is an intense shade of blue-green, while Pantone recently announced that Ultra Violet 18-3838 (always a regal color) will reign supreme in the coming year.

Using jewel tones with dusty neutral shades makes for a layered look. Think darkest navy, eggplant or charcoal for a rich dramatic and inviting change.

Following the trend of outlining rooms or windows in dark trim, here are a few designer picks:
- Pittsburgh Paints, Black Flame 545-7, is a beautiful indigo-hued black that suits modern interiors
- Olympics' (found at Lowe's) Black Magic O|116. 
- Gliddens' Deep Onyx OONN 07/000 pairs well with any color 

Ask for samples, to try/swatch your chosen color first. Make sure to prime with Eggshell paint to gain the color truest to the swatch. Using color to refresh your home is a wonderful way to feel differently about your space and inspire other design updates.
