We’ve already seen some of these shades make waves this year, so if you need some help imagining how they might play out in your own space, look no further than 9 rooms below. It’s easy to see why we’ll be obsessed with them well into 2017.
1. Dusky Blue
This Hamptons home proves that feeling blue doesn’t have to be a bad thing. Intended to recall the colors of the ocean, the beachy shade used here highlights the home’s high ceilings.
Orange accents pack a punch in a saturated green space. It’s the perfect color combo for when you want to up the drama.
3. Sunshine Yellow
Yes, painting your floor lemon yellow is a risk – but don’t you feel happier just looking at this room?
4. Mineral Gray
The best way to kick traditional style up a notch? Paint your space a rich color like this dark gray. In this case, the texture of the wall softens the solemn shade.
5. Light Blue – Green
When paired with black and white accessories, robust teal and polished aqua enliven a minimalist office.
6. Earthy Green and Taupe Beige
Taupe and earthy green create a calming vibe in an East Hampton summer home.
7. Powdery Blue
Looking to take your first big risk with color? Traditionally summery shades – like this aqua – feels sophisticated when grounded with dark wood floors and brass accents.
8. Pastel Pink
Looks like Rose Quartz isn’t going anywhere. The ultra feminine shade accentuates a space’s natural light
9. Dusted Yellow
Bright accent pieces – like the soft yellow console – energize this room’s muted gray walls.
