Painting the interior of your home is a great solution to keep it on-trend and interesting. Luckily, if you’ve decided to go this route, there’s no shortage of painters for you to choose from. In fact, according to Zippia, over 162,606 house painters are currently employed in the U.S. After you’ve found the right painting company for your project, the next step is to choose a color scheme. It’s not just your house’s walls that can benefit from a refresh, there are a few other areas that you can update using these suggestions. Autumnal paints are soothing and homey and perfect for creating a beautiful interior. From cabinets to your walls, you’ll love experimenting with these beautiful trends. Here are a few popular painting trends to explore this autumn.
Olive Green Throughout Your Home
Green is always a popular choice for paint color, and olive is the shade that’s in the spotlight right now. It’s a sophisticated take on an old standard that works well in any room of your house. The right painting company will be familiar with this shade as it’s been a popular choice this year. It’s the perfect choice when you want to create a dramatic dining room, give your kitchen cabinets an upgrade, or make your den a lot cozier. It’s a soothing shade for bedrooms and the perfect way to add elegance to your foyer or entranceway.
Olive green can be paired with colors with the same undertones to prevent them from clashing. Check out pairing it with some browns and grays to get a cool effect. Warmer tones are also a great way to add some olive green to your home. If you’re usually drawn to neutrals, this is an excellent choice to try as it’s not overwhelming and its overall effect is quite soothing. Autumn is a perfect time of year to branch out and explore some new colors. And, due to its deep tones, olive green is a wonderful way to begin.
Brightly Painted Cabinets
All-white kitchens will always be popular, but that doesn’t mean that they’re constantly on top of the year’s hottest trends. Brightly painted cabinets are an effective way to update your kitchen without too much disruption to your daily routine. Yellow cabinets with a honey undertone are an on-trend option that will brighten even the darkest kitchen. Light blue is another color that’s gaining popularity. If you want to give your kitchen a refresh while embracing today’s trends, painted cabinets are the way to go.
If you’re looking for color inspiration, your painting company will be able to provide some suggestions. Design websites are another helpful resource. Consider the entire look of your kitchen when selecting the color for your cabinets. It doesn’t need to be an exact match, but all the main design elements in the room should be in the same color family. And don’t forget to choose new hardware to further update the look of your cabinets and create an entirely new look. Autumn is a time of year when we spend a lot of time in the kitchen baking and cooking for family and friends. What better way to increase your enjoyment than giving the cabinets a refresh?
Deep Reds, Plum, and Dusty Orange
Autumn colors are rich and deep. And automatically make any room feel cozier. Choose from shades across the red family, burgundy, plum, and dusty orange with red undertones. These colors also look terrific together. If you’re looking to create a cozy space where you can curl up with a good book and a hot coffee, a maroon nook is the perfect choice for you. Door and window trim also look amazing when painted in one of these colors with a glossy paint finish, as it adds an extra layer of interest to the room.
In addition to painted finishes, these colors are also perfect for bathroom vanities, storage cabinets, and powder rooms. You can accent the colors with gold to give the items even more of a festive feeling! Painted decor is another way to add a few of these colors to your entertainment area. The possibilities are truly limitless! Take some time to think about the areas of your home that could use a splash of color and add one of these.
Autumnal Palettes with Copper, Apricot, Gold, and Brown
If autumn is your favorite season, and you want to enjoy its beautiful hues all year long, consider painting one or more of the rooms in your home with an autumnal palette. This is a trend that will look and feel wonderful, no matter the season. We love a room with walls painted deep eggplant with gold and copper accents. If this sounds enticing to you, now’s an ideal time to explore this color scheme further.
Autumn is a time of year when we begin to transition to spending more time indoors and at home. This color palette will help to enhance the nesting feeling we all speak as temperatures turn colder. If you’re more drawn to neutrals, lighter shades of copper, apricot, and brown may be more to your liking. Or, you can consider adding some accents in these gorgeous colors.
Painted Walls in Contrasting Colors
Another great trend that’s forecasted to be popular this fall is painted walls in contrasting colors. This is typically done using two extremely different colors, such as black and white. Unlike accent walls where just one color is different from the others, contrasting walls are typically adjacent. If you have an area of an open-plan area that you want to delineate for a special purpose, this is a very effective way to do it. For instance, if there’s an area that you like to use to house your bar cart and an additional seating area, contrasting wall colors is an elegant way to get the effect you want. It’s also a sophisticated touch for bathrooms and powder rooms.
A deep shade of black without a lot of gloss or light reflection pairs beautifully with a crisp, bright shade of white. The contrast in the finishes as well as the colors elevates this decor style even more. Your painter will be able to advise you on the best-suited areas of your home for this trend, as well as the right finishes and colors. If you prefer neutral paint colors as a general rule, this is an effective way to add visual interest without introducing a lot of color to your home’s palette.
