Invite in the Moody

Rebekah Westover

I know the thoughts of “Moody” evoke thoughts of melancholy or gloominess, but when it comes the actual tones of Moody, those thoughts are misplaced. “Rich, dark, and complex colors like chestnut brown, deep burgundy, and charcoal blue are considered moody because of their velvety appearance and complex undertones,” which create an excellent foundation for building an a truly rich and captivating layered color palette.


Nature Influences

It’s been noted that a trend is arising around serene colors reflecting the sky, nature, and the ocean. These tones are gaining popularity with consumers as a way to balance and relax our overstimulated eyes after a long day. Muted blues, greens, grays, and browns are being used to invite in a calming nod to nature.


Warm Neutrals

Benjamin Moore

The neutral paint colors continue to be one of the most popular paint trends in 2019. However, it’s being predicted that the market will shift toward slightly warmer neutrals such as greiges and tans as opposed to grays. Utilize subtle light warm grays to mid-tone browns to can make a space appear cozier


Contrasting Black

Joyelle West

Black will continue to reign in 2019! Black continues to be a beautiful way to add contrast to white or lighter spaces when used on cabinetry, interior doors, and accent walls. If you worry about a true black being too strong to incorporate, consider choosing an off black hue with a gray or brown undertone to balance. These more colored shades of black will give you beautiful contrast without being too bold and overpowering.
