2023 Trend Watch: Designing Your Home with Color
Color is one of the most influential elements in home design, setting an overall mood and establishing vivid focal points. Choosing color is also one of the most personal decisions you’ll make during the process of designing a whole home remodel or new home as colors affect and appeal to each individual differently. Painted walls are not the only way to bring a fresh palette into your home; color accents can be achieved with tile design, cabinetry, and accessories. Our professional designers guide each client to the color palette that makes sense for their lifestyle and the design of their home. Here are some ideas for inspiration.
Coastal Hues of Greens and Blues
Our clients are often inspired by the nearby ocean when remodeling their coastal homes and want to reflect seaside surroundings in their color palette. We see coastal color trends communicated with soft and subtle shades of blue, gray, and sand, or with more vivid interpretations of ocean shades. In this artistic kitchen, the backsplash pops with brilliant turquoise while blues, greens, and grays are integrated in the intriguing countertop on the island.
Sage and Sand Inspired by Nature
Color palettes connected to nature have been trending for a few years now, with the emphasis this year on soft and sagey greens. Sage green feels both refreshing and calming and can be used in any room. This laundry room in this Boho Chic modern farmhouse artfully reflects this trend in the color of the cabinetry.
Many Shades of Pretty Pink
Both Pantone and Benjamin Moore selected a pink hue as their 2023 Color of the Year. And, with the wild success of the “Barbie” movie, pink is definitely having a(nother) moment. Today, pink in home design ranges from soft and dusky hues that can be used as a neutral shade to vibrant and attention-getting bursts of color in the magenta or hot pink range. The master bathroom in this contemporary home uses pink to beautiful effect in the terrazzo of the countertops, contrasted with dark cabinetry.
Whether you decide to try bold color in every room, a splash of color on one wall, or simply experiment with accessories, staying on top of the latest trends in color can help you discover your personal creative expression in your home.
