The 2018 Color(s) of the Year
While the Godfather of the color world, Pantone, has yet to release their color choice for 2018, (which we are eagerly awaiting), they have released eight color palettes to inspire 2018 designs. You can read a rundown of the palettes at Elle Décor. In the meantime, here’s what some of the big paint companies are pushing for 2018.
Behr released a palette of 20 colors, with the lead color being In The Moment (T18-15), a pretty, serene shade of blue-green, perfect for an update farmhouse look.
Ready for a bold statement color in 2018? So is PPG Paints, selecting Black Flame (PPG1043-7). Don’t worry – Black Flame isn’t that black, but it does have all the power of a dark color.
Perhaps Kelly-Moore Paints hasn’t gotten the memo about running from neutrals because Bahia Grass (KM4782) is barely a few green steps away from grey.
Going in a completely different, but exciting and warm direction is Benjamin Moore’s Caliente (AF-290). While I'm personally not a big fan of red, I'm looking forward to seeing more color in decor for 2018, even if it isn't my favorite color. Plus, Caliente has a very refined feel to it, keeping it from being obnoxious.
And last but definitely not least, our favorite paint company Sherwin-Williams chose Oceanside (SW 6496) for their 2018 color of the year. It’s bright, playful, and exactly the cure we need to finally get away from the monochromatic, minimalistic neutrals that have been ruling the color world as of late. Check back soon for a post all about different ways you can decorate with this brilliant color.
