1. Make it pop

Here’s the throwback trend of the decade: accent walls.

This trend has been on-again, off-again, but you can expect it to get big again during the upcoming years. The key to accent walls is making sure that they have a purpose – use your bold color to highlight a feature of the room. Whether it be a fireplace, window, or even a wall of cabinets, give it its own color to make it stand out.

2. Natural Neutrals

When have neutrals not been a trend, right? Gray, white, and beige are all returning to the neutral parade, but you might be surprised to know that darker colors like black are being welcomed into the neutral family. The same goes for colors like sage green, blush pink, and navy blue. You just can’t go wrong with a good neutral.

3. It’s all how you frame it

Black window frames have gone in and out of style (right now they’re still all the rage) but this trend takes it one step further. Who needs basic black when you have all the colors of the rainbow at your fingertips? Paint your window frames a different color from the rest of the walls and you’ll really make them stand out. You’ll also give your room a beautiful and refreshing splash of color, so what’s not to love?

4. Patterns everywhere

This trend is limited only by your imagination. Less commitment than wallpaper and more freedom, painting patterns onto your walls is starting to gain popularity. Whether your stencil or freehand, your patterned, painted wall will add personality to any room and is sure to wow visitors.

5. Look up

If you want to make a bold color statement, be prepared to look up. The painted ceiling is becoming more and more popular because it is such a fun use of color. Choose a strong color that will compliment your neutrals for a great, put-together look. If you’re feeling especially bold, consider doing a pattern up there as well.

6. Open new doors

Yes, we’re used to painting our front doors a nice color. Have you ever considered that you might be missing out by not doing the same thing to your interior doors? It’s time to give it a try! This trend has been popping up all over the place because it is such a great way to add some color, life, and drama to your home.
