“With rich jewel tones continuing to make a comeback, Calypso Blue works well with both traditional and modern interiors. This bold color would work great in a powder room offsetting shiplap, as an accent in your built-ins, on the ceiling or on a piece of furniture.”

— Leslie Trenta, Marsh on the May

Everard Blue-Benjamin MooreEverard Blue

“I enjoy this color because of its versatility. It’s a warm blue that could easily pair itself with a traditional or more contemporary setting. I would use this color as an accented kitchen island, accompanied by rich gold hardware.” 

— Taylor Robinson, Group3/Pyramids

Rainy Afternoon Benjamin Moore (1575)Rainy Afternoon

“Rainy Afternoon is a perfect smoky green color I would use in a satin finish on cabinetry in a kitchen or laundry room. It has just enough saturation to make a dramatic impact on a space and still work with a neutral color palette. This earth tone can be paired with a floral print wallpaper or warm wood flooring.”

— Nicole Edwards, J. Banks Design Group

“We will be teaming it with one of our favorite soft whites from Sherwin Williams — Alabaster and Snowbound — as a fresh and playful accent, perfect in a bedroom, a powder room or kitchen keeping area.”

Green Paint ColorGreen

“Both at High Point Market and prior, we noticed more and more individuals were using or expressing a desire to use the color green. This contrasts with the previous year when blue was the color everyone was fascinated with. Green is notably found across the board in a wide range of products, including textiles, case pieces, rugs and accessories. Green is the new blue.”

— Susan Vernon, Tribus Interior Design (Dillard-Jones)

“I think the colors pink and green are still huge design trends, especially in combination. We are seeing a lot of pink and green together in wallpaper and fabrics. In green we are seeing tones from moss green to emerald and pinks in shades of blush and coral.”

— Shell Neely, Kelly Caron Designs
