Reminiscent of the American West, rust is rooted in earthy terracotta hues and rich shades of red and brown. This saturated color can warm up even the coldest interiors; use in smaller doses on upholstery or trim to instantly elevate a space.
Forget everything you know about builder beige, the goes-with-anything wall color of 1990s suburban design. This revamped, modern take on ecru feels fresh and new, nudging out the light grays that have been in fashion for years. Mixed with natural materials, pale woods and textural accents, this toasty hue is warm, cozy and on-trend.
Smouldering, sun-kissed and full of cheer, this mustardy yellow is having a moment. Conjuring a California cool injected with retro appeal, turmeric evokes the last days of summer and early autumn. In today’s interiors, this versatile shade is golden.
Chocolate shades bring drama and an intensity to rooms in a way that’s similar to black but without the all-or-nothing high contrast. When done well, the sophisticated color adds a distinguished look to traditional and contemporary interiors.
First embraced by Henry Matisse in the 1950s, catapulted into notoriety by Yves Klein in the ’60s and in fashion again in the ’80s, bright cobalt has never really lost popularity. Today, the saturated blue takes on new life when used as a bold accent.
Searching for a warmer, grown-up version of millennial pink? Look no further than this deliciously sweet shade. Melony hues with soft, orange undertones are catching up to popular pastel pinks and radiate a fresh perspective with universal appeal.
Reaffirming the power of fashion’s buzzy pastel palette, neo-mint intensifies sage and rain-washed green shades. Not quite a neon, but just as punchy and vibrant, this hue is a great way to add tension to a traditional room. Paint your walls the bold shade for a bright outlook that will keep you smiling.
No longer associated with pink, muted lavender has enjoyed an elegant renaissance. The mauvy shade acts like a flattering neutral while having an edge that keeps the look modern. Envelop rooms in this hue to bring eclectic energy to contemporary spaces.
In contrast to the stark, bright whites seen in studios and kitchens, off-white offers more softness and versatility. Barely-there yellow undertones warm up spaces to create an envelope that’s easy on the eyes.
Everyone’s favorite shade just got a fresh, optimistic makeover. Because it’s not too candy-colored, this serene, inviting blue can be treated like a neutral. Use it as a backdrop for a gallery wall to make art really pop.
