2016 Color Trend Report

Posted by DecoArt on Aug 23rd 2015

Color speaks.
When someone walks into your home, the colors you use, help tell your story!

The colors we're drawn to, are most likely influenced by the colors we see in the world around us...and I'm not just talking about in nature! Every year, colors in fashion, automobiles and design change. Most of us have heard of Pantone's Color of the Year, which they announce every December. But even now, there are color forecasts for 2016...do you want to take a look?

Color Marketing Group has these colors on their radar for 2016...

 I attended a fascinating color lecture by Erika Woelfel, (Director of Color at Behr Paint) and she showed us the Behr Paint 2016 Color Trends...

I see some similarities in the Behr and CMG's color trends...
My favorite in both palettes is the soft celadon green.. .
