Interior Design Trends: The Hottest Paint Colors for 2015

In a previous blog post not so long ago we talked about the Pantone Color of the Year, which is a color that was met with mixed feelings. If you aren't looking to paint your walls the color of the year and want to know what the right colors are to bring into your home, where do you look? And who do you trust? GHID is here to help you feel confident about the right neutrals to bring into your home! Rather than giving you all of our secret colors to use when selecting colorful interiors, we are going to go under the radar and tell you all of the best ways to incorporate neutral hues into your home! There are plenty of colors that hold that prestigious title from various brands, and they are slated to be the hottest paint colors for 2015!

Be Bold With Cobalt Blue Or Greek Blue Paint Colors

When you think of Greece, you daydream of seeing in Santorini, a city made up of beautiful white washed homes with rounded roofs and saturated blue hues. A great way to incorporate this fabulous hue is in a bold way...of course! I am in love with this room, particularly because of the sheen of the cobalt blue paint color on the ceiling.

Essential Teals That Are Reminiscent Of The Warm Seas


The beautiful shade teal is atypical of your average dreamy bedroom, but the color team at BEHR are looking to send out some color inspiration that will energize your space. "Color itself is like one of the senses, enhancing our world and our state of mind," says Erika Woelfel, director of color marketing for BEHR. This favorite in the Deep Dreams palette brings a feeling of calming escape that sets the tone for a glamorous staycation.

Pastels Are Not Just For Easter - Use Them In Your House Year-Round


Blue Paisley: PPG Paints Color of the Year

According to BEHR, "soothing and welcoming, pastels add ambiance and a gentle glow to any room. Given the range of hues, from light lemonade to delicate pink to soft minty green, you can enhance any style of room with these pale palettes.

Pastels are the ideal color choices if you want something subtle and want to venture beyond cream and beige. You can keep a room simple, with walls in one color, yet spice up the furnishings and accent pieces with patterns. Or take it a step further by painting pale shades on some walls and bolder versions of the same color family on others. The subtle adaptability of pastels makes them beautiful color choices for any room, in any style."

Old School Americana Color Palettes

Come get comfortable with Colorhouse as we explore Color Trend 2015 – Homespun Hues. In this palette we bring it back home by incorporating subtle Americana influences. The Made in America movement is strong, and we find ourselves looking for “Made Here” labels on the products we purchase. Weave together flea market finds with hand-crafted designer furniture for a look that’s both casual and luxurious, soft and simple, and intentionally unsophisticated. Use Colorhouse hues AIR .01AIR .03,WOOD .04 and WOOL .06 to create a Homespun feel in your home.
