How to pick the perfect paint colors for your home.

One of the most exciting things about getting a new home is getting to do things just how you like them. But picking paint colors can be a tough job. There are so many, where do you even start? Getting to know the color trends can make it a little easier. Maybe you have a particular look in mind or just want to exercise a little self-expression. Either way, you can use the 2021 trends to help get the right aesthetic for your new home.

Interior paint color

What better way to start thinking about your interior paint colors than by taking a look at the Pantone 2021 colors of the year. This year there are two: Ultimate Gray and Illuminating, which is a bright yellow.  Grays are versatile neutrals that can complement just about any style and look perfect in any room. While yellows are a classic for kitchens. A bright yellow can also make a good accent color. You don’t necessarily need to go with these exact shades either, but it can be a good starting point.

Earth tone palettes are a very big trend this year. So many people have spent so much time indoors recently that anything that gives a nod to the great outdoors is a welcome sight. Greens, blues, and yellows are popular choices, but the big trend for earth tones this year is brown.

Along with dark brown, other fall colors like purple are popular right now too. Especially some of the bolder, more saturated, and luxurious-looking shades. A good example is Aubergine, a brownish-purple color. These colors are usually too intense for an entire room, but they can make a great accent wall or accent color in decor. If you have an accent color or two you would love to have in the room, you can work from there and look at wall colors that would work with them.

Exterior color

When picking exterior colors, you’ll want to consider the curb appeal of your home, or how it will look from the street. For this reason, most people don’t want to go overboard with something too bold. You’ll want to consider the window color and roof color too when making your exterior color choices.

Those can’t be easily changed and you don’t want anything visually offensive that makes your home look like an eyesore rather than stylish. White or other neutrals are always a popular choice, you can avoid looking too average by picking a trim color that is bold or dark. It’s the perfect spot to work in some color.

Neutrals and blue

If you absolutely aren’t sure what to go with, pick a neutral. They’re popular for a reason. And they work both inside and out.

Another color that is almost universally appealing is blue. It’s a calm and soothing color that also works inside and out. For that reason, it’s a popular choice for bedrooms and bathrooms. This year’s trendiest shades like turquoise and sapphire can provide a pop of color to your interior
