Various greens are expected to be popular for 2018, although, not the “pure” greens most of us are used to. Instead, a collection of cultured greens ranging from bright celery to rich avocado. Look to pair these greens with other exotic colors such as coral and canary yellow.

Bright accent colors are extremely important to help place emphasis on contrast or rhythm, depending on your taste. These colors are best utilized as trim colors to give a vivid and bold impression. Trendy accent colors for 2018 are said to include shades of red such as fuschia, lavender, and scarlet, as seen below. We expect to see these colors hit the walls of Rocklin interior painting jobs this year.

Trends for this year are indicating that making a statement with your home’s exterior will be priority, as well as complementing it. As noted earlier, “bold” is the key fashion trend for 2018. On that note, let’s dive into this year’s exterior painting trends.

A key concept for creating a color palette for your next Rocklin exterior painting is to make it both bold and dynamic. Professional painters do this by using light and dark shades of similar colors – blue, black, gray – along with one bold accent color to make the entire creative color scheme pop!

Easy steps to choosing a color palette:

  • Choose the main color from your home’s architectural palette
  • Find 1-2 complementary shades of color. Usually to the left or right of your main color on the color wheel.
  • Choose one accent color to stand out in your palette.
    • Usually at the opposite end of the color spectrum.
