Hottest Color Trends of 2016

JQ Painting Company is super excited for 2016 and hope everyone has a Happy New Year.  A new year is the perfect time to embrace change. I can’t think of a better way to start off 2016 then with the hottest new colors Dunn Edwards has to offer.

To the Manor Born
Inspired by Romanticism and medieval design, this trend takes cues from floral designs, historic architecture (Victorian, Colonial and Gothic) and opulent jewelry and fashion. “To the Manor Born” blends hushed neutrals like fleshy pinks, mauve and shades of grey for a palette that is strangely surreal, fantastical and macabre – think Pride and Prejudice meets Edgar Allan Poe. Ideal for: the romantic and introspective.

An Island to Myself
This trend explores the relationship between the digital world and spiritual retreats. “An Island to Myself” was inspired by Asian monks and technological innovations and includes crisp blues, soft gray, violet, taupe and cloud whites to enhance a quiet space for meditation. This trend focuses on simplicity and purity. Ideal for: visionaries and innovators.

Back at the Ranch
Inspired by the wild and authentic early Western ranches, “Back at the Ranch” colors evoke a weathered, sundrenched atmosphere of a saloon, safari lodge or farmhouse. It includes earthy naturals like cinnamon with bright accents like marigold and tomato red. This is for the home that displays low-key décor with honest materials like wood, leather or Mexican-inspired embroidery. Ideal for: the gypsy spirit.

This trend embodies the home away from home, like summer family vacations by the lake, camping trips and festivals. “Summer Camp” is a playful palette reminiscent of family outings and home décor of the 50s and 60s. It includes sunny colors, sorbet hues and vintage blues. Ideal for: the happy nostalgic.
