2018 is saturated with fail-safe neutral paint color inspirations. While it is true that you can never go wrong with the clean and classic look, it is high time you kick things up a notch and try other color options. Start your exploration by looking into color trends.

Now, warmer colors are generally on the rise. In fact, Pantone, the world’s leading color authority, declared Living Coral as its Color of the Year. This hue is best described as “orange meets pink” to produce a vibrant yet mellow shade of coral. It is both dreamy and warm yet not too overwhelming to the eye. It is neither too bright nor too dull; it exudes just the right amount of warmth and playfulness.

In a sea of white or grey houses, make a statement and let your home stand out with Living Coral.
