Hi friends. How is it going? Let’s talk paint colors. What is trending for you? Or do you keep it simple and stay away from the trends?
I have seen sooo many different styles lately my head is spinning. But that doesn’t mean I don’t love what I’m seeing. Newest of all is the bold, bright colors, wall stencils and wall paper. The cross matched patterns and brass or gold accents. Have you been following the One Room Challenge? Wow, so many different styles!
And I love them all, but when you are doing your own home, you still have to figure out what is going to work for you.
For me what is currently working is my antique white wall paint. But I’m having a heck of a time with choosing the right trim color. I’ve chosen to go darker on some of the trim, but I currently went too dark. I thought I had it figured out, but now that it’s painted. I do not like it!!
So while I’m still working on painting trim and keeping my seedlings happy outdoors (I’ve been watering two times a day and getting ready to plant them), I wanted to say thank you for following along with a $25.00 Visa Gift Card Giveaway.
Just because XOX.
So let’s have some fun. Tell me what’s been going on in your world with paint color or decor style. What look is trending for you? What paint color did you most recently paint that room with? What color do you want to cover the walls in next? Are you tempted to stencil a wall? (Note: this giveaway has expired, but please keep reading to see what everyone is choosing as their favorite paint color choices).
UPDATE: The Answers are in.
Trending Paint Color Choices Drill Down:
Adding up the poll count, Neutral colors wins the top choice. Here is a list broken down.
- Neutrals, Grays and Whites = 52 %
- Color (with blue and green hues being the most popular) = 33%
- Neutrals with pops of color, earth tones, or pastels = 15%
So it looks like over half of us still like some shade of white, beige, greige or gray. Perhaps that’s what we feel most comfortable with.
Approximately one-third of us like to see a variation of bolder colors on our walls. Blues and greens were most mentioned as specific colors.
Lastly, about one-fifth of us still like neutrals, but with pops of color, or mixed in with pastels.
Wouldn’t it be interesting to take a poll like this one a years and see how or if even these percentages would change much?
