It’s no secret that the last decade has seen an influx of cold, gray-toned interior paint colors. Many homeowners want their homes to look crisp and clean with color choices in furniture, accessories and artwork consisting mainly of grays, greens and blues.
But it seems like there is a shift happening in 2013 toward warmer, more neutral paint colors. Whether you are looking to rejuvenate your home decor or just want to know what design trends are coming next, here’s a look at some of the top warm, neutral paint colors for 2013.
The color trend in fashion this fall is all about deep jewel-tones and neutrals . Pantone’s color of the year for 2013 is emerald green; one of the most popular paint choices on Ethereal Painters list of 2013 color forecasts. Emerald green may be too deep for many interiors, but warm gray-beige neutrals are always a good choice that will never go out of style.
These dark neutrals give a great backdrop for textiles and artwork, especially art with bold colors or rustic tones. Animal prints are also popular in 2013 , so adding these dark neutrals into the mix gives you free rein to bring animal print accents into your home decor.
It’s no surprise that deep jewel-tones and neutrals go well together, but a surprising trend for 2013 is the pairing of complementary colors. If you love bright, bold color but want to avoid incorporating too much red or yellow into your decor in order not overwhelm with abundance on one side; try adding navy blue or green instead! Complementary hues contrast beautifully against each other while remaining calm enough so as not distract from other complimentary pieces like artwork hanging nearby.
