2018 Paint Colors of the Year!


THINK OF PAINT COLORS… WE USUALLY THINK: BLUE… GREEN… YELLOW.. BUT THE NUANCES WITHIN EACH COLOR CAN BE HUGE.>>>WELCOME BACK. WHEN WE THINK PAINT COLORS, WE USUALLY THINK BLUE, GREEN, YELLOW. RED, PURPLE. BUT THE NUANCES BETWEEN EACH COLOR CAN BE HUGE. WE ARE JOINED BY THE HOST OF INSIDE OUT ON KOMO NEWS RADIO. WHO KNEW COLORS WEREN’T SO BLACK-AND-WHITE. >>IT’S VERY TRUE. ALSO THE NAMES OF COLORS. AS DESIGNERS WE GO WHO THINKS THIS UP? >>I LOOK AT SOMETHING AND I SAY THIS IS BLUE, PURPLE, RED. THEN WE GET DOWN TO THE COMPLEXITY OF IT. >>IT IS. IT IS COMPLEX. OUR FIRST COLOR SUMS IT UP INCLUDING THE NAME. IT’S CALLED THE MOMENT. IT’S COLOR OF THE YEAR. IT LOOKS LIKE LIGHT BLUE BUT DEPENDING ON THE LIGHTING IT CAN HAVE UNDERTONES. IT CAN LOOK SORT OF GREEN. ONE OF THE THINGS I LOVE ABOUT THIS COLOR IS IT DOES CHANGE AND TRANSFORM DEPENDING ON YOUR LIGHT BUT IT IS A COLOR THAT WOULD WORK ON THE INSIDE AND THE OUTSIDE. THAT IS VERY DIFFICULT FOR A COLOR TO PULL OFF. >>IS AT THE DOOR OR THE WALLS? >>IT’S THE WALLS AND IT LOOKS GREAT. IT’S SUBTLE AND IT’S SOFT BUT IT’S A SUPERB COLOR. >>I REALLY LIKE THAT AS AN EXTERIOR COLOR. REMEMBER THE ADDRESS? IS IT GOLDBAND TAN OR BLACK AND BLUE? >>THAT’S THE WAY THIS COLOR IS. I ALSO THINK IT SHOULD BE A CELINE DION SONG BUT THERE YOU GO. >>WHAT ELSE? >>THE NEXT ONE IS BLACK FLAME. >>I LOVE THESE NAMES. >>I KNOW. I’M RIGHT THERE WITH YOU. THIS ONE IS BROUGHT TO US BY SHERWIN WILLIAMS. THIS ONE IS THERE COLOR OF THE YEAR. HERE IS WHAT I WANT TO SAY. A LOT OF PEOPLE SAY I’M NOT GOOD AT THIS. IF YOU WANT SOMETHING DRAMATIC, THIS IS OFF-WHITE. BLACK FLAME IS SORT OF A MAD BLACK — MATTE BLACK AND IT’S SOFT. >>IT’S BEAUTIFUL BUT VERY BOLD. I FEEL LIKE YOU BETTER KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING. YES BUT FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO TRY SOMETHING GUTSY I THINK IT’S ROMANTIC. IT’S THEATRICAL. I THINK IT’S A GREAT COLOR COMBINATION AND I AM ENCOURAGING PEOPLE TO USE IT. >>IT’S VERY MODERN. >>IT IS. IN OUR OWN STUDIO, WE ARE PUTTING THROUGH A BLACK FLOOR. I AM EXCITED ABOUT BLACK THIS YEAR. ONE OF THE OTHER THINGS WE ARE SEEING IS COLOR COMBINATIONS. THIS IS NOT NEW TO ME. THAT IS BECAUSE — SEE LOOK AT THIS. THIS IS A GRAPHITE GRAY BUT IT LOOKS BLUE. THE DRESS I’M WEARING IS BLUE BUT YOU CAN MAKES — MIX THAT WITH DE LAND GREEN. THINK ABOUT THE BIRDS OF A FEATHER FROM A PEACOCK. THERE IS BLUE, GREEN, GRAPHITE. I THINK IT’S AN EXTRAORDINARY COMBINATION. THEY HAVE ALWAYS BEEN MY FAVORITE COMBINATION AND NOW IT’S A TREND. OUR LAST ONE I THINK IS REALLY GREAT BECAUSE IF YOU CAN’T THINK OF WHAT TO DO, WHY NOT JUST ONE MALL? OR JUST A CEILING? ONE BOLD, BLUE WALL. >>IS THAT MAY BE? >>I JUST THINK BOLD BLUE IS IN IN 2018. PICK ONE. NAVY OR DARK BLUE. >>ALL THESE COLORS ARE SO BOLD, RICH, THERE IS A LOT TO THEM. >>THERE IS A LOT TO THEM. COMPLEXITY, BLENDING. ESPECIALLY THOSE BLACK ROOMS, DARK GRAY ROOMS. >>TAKE A CHANCE AND HAVE FUN. >>YOU

    The Behr color "My Moment" is a neutral and would be quite boring without the Accent rich green door.
    A color that works very well with the gray/green tone us Eggplant – deep dark purple.
    Also various reds from Brown based Reds to the Calente Red a rich perfect red that is gorgeous when done in a flat or suede finish.
    Neutrals are the great pallets from which to design-Decor.

    The 2nd SW "Black Flame", – Charcoal Soft Black is exactly the paint tone I had mixed to achieve my own designer color for my home – Living Room and I use a cream on the opposite wall with high gloss white finish trim paint.
    I treated my charcoal to achieve a linen look and that makes the outcome have an elegant feel.
    It only requires (Professional Painter) and (Expert Interior Lighting) to achieve a Premium Outcome and it needs only a mix of blacks, cream suede throw pillows, silver or gold frames on walls and a splash of Red, Yellow, or Cobalt Blue to make it a complete design winner. Window Treatments should be Custom Wood Shutters – or White Shades and White Shears to be safe – and hang to floor.

    Doors may be Black or White..
