The hottest paint color trends of 2018

Well, it’s the beginning of a new year…and that means people are making all kinds of predictions about what the new year will bring.

Some of my favorite forecasts are the “Color of the Year” selections that the paint companies make each year.

As I mentioned last year when I was talking about the 2017 paint color trends, this isn’t necessarily so that I can rush out and paint my rooms the latest and greatest colors. I firmly believe you should only decorate with colors that you love, not go with the trends just because they are trendy.

However, if the trend happens to be a color I love, that usually means finding accessories in that color will be a whole lot easier. So it may help me make some decisions about any rooms I’m planning on re-decorating…or add some things to a space I already have decorated in that color.

This year a lot of the trends are continuing down the “lots of color” path that started last year. And since I happen to love color, that suits me just fine!

Keep reading to see the paint color trends for 2018.

  • Not a fan of the purples at all. Might be hard to find accent colors to go with. I like the oceanside teal but seems like we had seen this a couple of years ago. The Black-Onyx is the freshest idea. I would try this if I had a large enough room to make this work

    • Hi Donna…You’re right…The purple is pretty taste-specific, so you really have to love it to go with that! Teal has been around for a while, and the black is an up and coming trend that I think might be around for a little while.

  • I love the ‘In the Moment’ by Behr. I will be doing a guest bedroom in that color. I love the bold red as well and currently have splashes of it in my living room and kitchen.

    • Hi Diana…’In The Moment’ is a really pretty color for a guest bedroom…very soothing. And I agree…the bold red is a great accent color!

    • Hi Lisa…red and black is a really dramatic color combination. Your refurbished furniture must be stunning 🙂

  • They are really jewel toned which in a small space would be a bit brave or overwhelming! I like the reds and greens! Particularly the Behr “In the Moment” it will be my new front door color!!! Beautiful and welcoming!

    • Hi Donna…yes, a lot of the colors this year are definitely bold! I think that spa green will make a beautiful front door color!

  • My Sunroom is Purple bright purple.
    My Exterior is Cans Apple Red.
    My livingroom is close to Spa Green.
    That’s 3 out of 7 for me.

    • Judy

      My house is very open floor plan…my main accent color is a warm red…you would be surprised how many colors it co ordinates with…my other colors are soft greens, dark purple and pale yellow in small guest bath…I love all of these colors this year…the blue is going in guest bedroom

      • Thanks, Judy! Your house sounds very pretty. I also love using different colors in my home so I like to hear how other people are combining them.

  • I’m just not feeling the 2018 colors.
    I like a more peaceful relax look . A softer look .
    If I need color I Will do it in a throw / pillow / candle artwork.
    That room with the white cabinets black counter Red ceiling I would have to redo it.
    To me it takes center stage over everything in the room .
    You pay a lot for cabinets : counters etc Paint is cheap … why have Paint be the star of such a expensive room .
    I think a couple of red candles or canisters could have brought in that red in a much more pleasing way .
    Thank you

    • Hi Nancy…that’s the great thing about interior decorating! Everyone has their own design taste and can choose to decorate their home however they want to…just do what makes you happy 🙂

    • Nancy I’d say the opposite. I love the red walls with those white cabinets and black counters. I don’t think I would have done the ceiling that way as well but I love that the walls make the cabinets pop. Too often I see white cabinets, with greys and whites for walls and it’s just blah frankly. The red emphasizes the beautiful cabinetry in my mind doesn’t diminish it.
