Use These Bold Paint Colors For 2017
Check out the latest (and most dramatic) paint trends for the New Year!
Banish those beiges this year, because when it comes to paint, the future looks bright, as seen in Boysen’s Color Trends for 2017. As a departure from the dreamy pastels and vivid summer hues of their 2016 trends, Boysen introduces color collections of dramatic and moody hues that range from mustardy yellow to deep denim and rosy wine.
Here’s an exclusive sneak peek of one of their latest color palettes called "Maximal":
L-R, top row: Designer Denim, Rebel Yell, High Society; L-R, bottom row: Tuscan Sun, Fine Wine, Pink of Wealth
This deep denim is a wee bit lighter than navy blue, but has a subtle grayish undertone that almost makes it a neutral. Here is a similar shade in Kristine Neri-Magturo’s Sapphire Bloc bedroom, contrasted with geometric white wall patterns.
Rebel Yell veers between a rich cobalt and a dark sapphire. It is a very bold color, and if you are not daring enough to apply it to an entire room—as seen here—you can paint a single accent wall with it instead.
This sophisticated tint is the palest of greens, and thus, can be used as a neutral. Here, designer Carlo Mecate pairs the color with a blue accent wall.
Tuscan Sun is the perfect yellow that isn't traffic-stripe-bright, and it isn't as pale as the almost-beige butter yellow. The Castillo home's yellow walls are almost the same color, and go well with the complementary celery green wall.
This mid-tone maroon is almost Marsala-like, but with cooler undertones. A very rich color like this can look antique-y if used in a large area, so best to paint an accent wall or panel in it, as seen here in actor Jake Cuenca’s home.
This tint is the subtlest of the paint trends. It is feminine, but the muted undertone makes it go well even with modern interiors, as seen in this Sapphire Bloc living room by Morfosis.
Boysen Paints are available at hardware stores and depots nationwide.
