Dark is the New Neutral
Inspired by fashion runways, dark colors are now making their way to home decor for the top trending paint colors 2016. “Confident dark colors have re-emerged on fashion runways after years of gray and brown dominating, says Nautica At Home VP of Merchandising Vivien Sylvester. These trending colors have now translated into home decor in a smart and stylized fashion.”
When Nautica announced the top trending paint colors 2016, they were unexpected colors that encourage stepping out of the comfort zone, daring consumers to be bold in selecting color.
These dark colors can add instant glamour to your surroundings. For a modern look, pair your new deep hues with metallic furnishings.
Top Trending Paint Colors 2016
Specifically, what does “dark” mean? Deep navy, gray, brown and even black are all on Nautica at Home’s recommended list. Just don’t forget to mix in some ivory and cream to offset those deep hues. The depth created by pairing dark colors with whites, grays and golds makes for crisp contrasts. Sounds lush!
A few months ago I worked with Nautica At Home on a painting project that featured a bright aqua blue. I’m gonna need to get used to the idea of dark hues before I’m brave enough to try this new trend. Do you have any dark colors in your decor? What do you think of them?
