Spring 2016 Color Trends for Your Home Decor

Looking for a new hue to create a stunning space in your home?  If you’re not sure what paint color to use, then let Sherwin-Williams® help you decide.

The color experts at Sherwin-Williams researched global trends to determine the 34 colors that make up their 2016 color forecast. We asked them for some spring 2016 color trends and they gave us the run-down on up and coming colors.

The colors of their forecast are grouped into four palettes: Pura Vida, Mas Amor Por Favor, Nouveau Narrative and Trajectory. The Pura Vida  palette includes the Sherwin-Williams’ 2016 Color of the Year, Alabaster (SW 7008), a hue that is symbolic of new beginnings. Seasonal trends can vary widely according to local climate, cultures and customs.  Spring can be associated with ideas of rejuvenation, revival, renewal and regrowth. Alabaster has a strong connection with pureness and light across many cultures, making it the perfect hue to incorporate into a spring palette. It provides a soft foundation for the start of spring and sets the tone for harmony and balance.

Alabaster creates an atmosphere of ease and contentment for many spaces. This powerful color sets the tone for healing, rest and meditation in a bedroom or nursery.

The Mas Amor Por Favor color palette also features colors perfect for spring. “The colors of Mas Amor Por Favor are whimsical and optimistic. The palette is largely inspired by the More Love Please social campaign that began in São Paulo, which encourages people to increase the world’s happiness by doing good and appreciating everyday pleasures that come with living a life more physically connected to the people around us,” said Jackie Jordan, Director of Color Marketing at Sherwin-Williams.

The color experts at Sherwin-William state that “this palette connects across generations with dashing greens, cheeky pinks and a flower power that is as crisply modern as it is soulfully vintage.”
