Sneak Peak At The Hottest 2017 Paint Color Trends | If you want to update a room in your home and need some inspiration for the color palette, take a look at the new paint color trends for 2017.
2017 Paint Color Trends

It’s the start of a new year and that means the new paint color trends are a hot topic.

Now, if you know me, you know that I don’t believe in decorating by trends.  To have a home that you love, you need to go with what you love, not make your decisions based on what other people think is “in”.

If that’s the case, you may be wondering why I’m writing about the 2017 paint color trends.

There is one main reason that I like to know what the trends are: In the coming year, it will be much easier to find home decor items in the trendy colors.  So if you are making over a room (or just looking for accessories for an existing room) and your room colors happen to be on trend…your decorating job just got a whole lot easier!

And this year, I’m in luck! The trends are pointing towards a lot more color.  Unlike last year where one of the colors of the year was white…I have a hard time even calling that a color :) Not that I have anything against white, but I doubt you will ever find a white wall (or ceiling for that matter) in my house.

Anyhow, back to this year…click Next to see the hottest 2017 paint color trends.

    I spent literally hours looking for periwinkle paint colors a few months ago…clearly I was just ahead of my time.

      Sounds like you’re a trendsetter, Karen! If you need any more accessories to go with it, at least they should be easier to find now :)

    Hi Wanda,
    Yellow has been my favorite color forever and I don’t see that changing. I’m glad to see it made the list. However, I can say all the colors that are listed are wonderful and will work well together. This is the first time that I have liked every color Pantone predicts.
    Thanks for sharing!

      Hi Donna…I was happy with the color selections this year, too! Now I’m trying to figure out how many rooms I can update while they’re in style :) Thanks for stopping by!

    Two years ago I painted my entire interior in multiple shades of gray. My main accent color being a citrus green. Finding pieces in the green I desire has been a chore. Finally I will have an easier shopping experience finding accents. Hallelujah!

      Hi Tina…your house colors sound beautiful! You were just a little ahead of the trends :) This year you should be able to find all kinds of green!

    I love the colors this year. I’ve been doing green with purple for years. I won a consult with an interior designer once, who kept saying “I love your Emerald and Amethyst!!” I can’t really do anything to help you!! (She was very enthusiastic!) So I love “Greenery” and “Shadow” with the burnt red and some yellow thrown in. Anything beats that dusty rose and blueish ick from last year!

      I completely agree, Donna! So much better with real colors :) The purple and green in your house sounds stunning!

      Hi June…That is a pretty color combination. Those colors were included in a lot of the color palettes that the paint companies put together for this year, so I think they’ll be around for a while :)

    I used a light pale yellow in my bedroom and am using some gray accents in the room including the rug. I used a lovely green in my dining room. I used a taupe and sand in my two bathrooms. A warm golden honey yellow for my kitchen with burnt red accent pieces. I’m using a cozy sienna beige in my great room as well as a gorgeous gray flooring that resembles barn wood or driftwood, so I can use other accents to bring color into the room. I used chocolate and a light blue for spare bedroom. I liked some of the colors you showed this year except for the dark purple. I don’t care for purple of any kind in my home.

    I so love blue, grays, yellows, but I think I really want to take inspiration from colors in Kelly Rippas line of fabrics. I can’t say they are from this year, but I know coral, tealish and warm whites just to me seem perfect. I do love green too. Its hard to choose. The Navy in a pic from one of your colors shown when picking a whole house scheme was stunning. Navy can be used in so many ways from looking expensive to a warm farmhouse feel. Only problem I am now having is we lost our home and now we are renting. I did get permission to paint, but color limited to off whites and basic neutrals. So i plan on using decor and painting furniture. Money very tight so I have to use what I have and thankfully I do sew so making new curtains, bedding, pillows and other stuff will be good. I have loys of fabric even can dye it. So its just a matter of DIY and all on my own so we’ll see.

      Hi Gina…It sounds like you have lots of color ideas to choose from. I love all kinds of color, too…so I know it’s hard to pick :) Renting does it make harder…but as you say, you can make up for the lack of color on the walls by adding it to your furniture and other decor. I find that often the most creative schemes come from having to DIY it, so I’m sure you will be able to come up with something you love.

    Just read this article…and I was seriously considering painting my main floor. 12 years ago we painted one wall the burnt red and the other walls yellow…now I am thinking I should just leave it… seems my choices of colours has come back. ?
