While still popular, the softer tones that headlined seasons past are moving toward more adventurous colors in deep and mid tones. Reflective of a strong desire for confidence and stability, blues are the lead trend for fall 2016 – ranging from light, milky tones to more robust, stately hues. We anticipate one of the most popular being deep, near black blues (like Espionage C2-742 and Brigand C2-757). Other more vibrant colors like emerald greens, green-based yellows and purples are also becoming more popular, while earth tones remain a steady favorite.
Another current trend that is growing is the “finish of the moment” – gloss. Using this beautifully reflective sheen with deep tones on walls results in a high fashion, high design feel. It’s also being used more regularly on ceilings to create polish, interest and a touch of glamour.
