Homeowners can convey a variety of emotions in their favorite rooms by embracing different color palettes. From the sweet charm of pastels, to the comfortable ambience of neutral tones, to the majestic deep and bright tones, Behr Paints has pulled together trends to capture the balance needed to create inviting, inspiring and dramatically transformed rooms.

Behr’s 2015 Color Trends provide homeowners with inspiration and guidance for selecting the right color for their projects. The top on-trend color themes include:

Deep dreams


Featuring tranquil colors like teal, charcoal and eggplant, this selection offers an oasis of relaxation in a bedroom. Balance is created with white trim, gold metallic and pops of citron yellow in the decor accessories. Lush layers of patterned textiles invite fuchsia, bright green and purple into the mix.


Frosted pastels

Pastel paints create stimulating environments when combined with zesty bright accents; the contrast of pastel and striking accent can be balanced by touches of mauve and black created by floor stencils, fireplace tile and window treatments.

Social brights

A refined balance of brights and neutrals, lighter and darker colors, Social Brights features pure blue, red, purple and orange that feel energetic, draw attention and create a lively place for conversation. Shades of gray are the perfect balance on adjoining walls, trim or ceiling. Other intense hues make playful accompaniments in small decorative accessories for table-top and shelving displays.

Nuanced neutrals


Weathered, rustic colors are the hallmark of today’s mid-range neutral palette, spotlighted in Nuanced Neutrals. This trend features dusty aqua paneling and light tan walls with the casual companions of charcoal, lively copper and citrus orange accents.

Touches of dusty earth tones ensure neutral rooms create a marriage of function and comfort for the ultimate in interior styling. For more interior design ideas and photo inspiration, you can go online and visit www.facebook.com/BehrPaint.
