Cool, Calming Aquamarine

Beautiful aquamarine is a color that’s trending in interiors, as well as fashion. Pantone describes the color as cool, calming, stress relieving, and dreamy. This pretty color pairs well with gray, white, and other neutral colors.

Aquamarine is the perfect choice for a relaxing bedroom retreat. Use it to cover your walls or brighten up accent furniture.

Sophisticated Marsala

Marsala is Pantone’s 2015 color of the year. It’s warm, rich, and earthy — yet sophisticated. Marsala pairs well with a wide range of shades, from natural browns to fresh greens to vibrant blues. It looks striking when used with black and more subdued when matched with earthier colors.

Of course, marsala is a natural in the kitchen and dining room, where it looks beautiful on walls and furniture. It works equally well in the bedroom to create a luxurious getaway.

Pretty, Playful Coral

Coral is always one of the best paint colors for summer, and it’s sure to brighten up your home. This vibrant color is fresh, fun, and striking. It complements many colors, including grays, whites and beiges, pinks, and blues.

Have fun with this color in your home! Use coral to rejuvenate a small space, such as a bathroom, or to add character to living rooms and bedrooms. Coral is a bold choice for walls, so try using it on accent furniture and accessories if you’re feeling color shy.

Vibrant Royal Blue

Classic royal blue is a gorgeous and striking color that’s perfect for summer. Royal Blue feels rich and exciting. It pairs well with everything from gray to white (think Santorini) to pinks and oranges to olive green, making it a versatile color choice.

This color would look gorgeous in any room in your home. Tone it down with neutral colors and natural materials or play up its vibrancy by pairing it with brights.

Classic Grey

Grey has become a true classic in our homes. The beauty of gray lies in its versatility. Grey comes in many shades, and depending on its undertones (warm or cool), it can work with any color.

Freshen up your home by covering white walls with gray paint. Keep it subtle with soft, cool gray or go bold and striking with dark charcoal or slate gray. This is another color that will work in any room of your home.
