Behr-Essential-Teal-BedroomThe company presents 15 palettes for the coming year, including Deep Dreams. Shown in two bedrooms on the Behr website, the dark colors transform the space into “a dreamy, mythical landscape.” In the first, Essential Teal covers the walls, adding mystery and majesty. Seared Gray on the walls of the second bedroom serves as an elegant neutral.

On the lighter side, Behr shows Frosted Pastels in two bathrooms. The frosty pink of Secret Blush on walls has an airy, feminine appeal, and Dandelion Tea creates a lovely background against which brighter accessories and furniture can pop.

Nuanced Neutrals in two kitchen examples creates the “perfect marriage of function, color and contentment.” The dusty Blue Clay covers the walls in one, with the crisp Snap Pea Green as the dominant color in the other. Mocha Foam, Mulberry Wine, and Peach Preserve complete the color scheme.


Sherwin-Williams-Frank-Blue-Living RoomFour palettes represent the paint company’s color forecast for 2015, among them Unrestrained and the "bold, ethnic-inspired colors to the Bohemian lifestyle." In a living room example, Frank Blue and Nifty Turquoise cover accent walls, with Marshmallow providing contrast.

In Chrysalis, the earth and sky served as inspiration for an oasis. The bathroom shown uses Cotton White and Willow Tree, with Sticks & Stones and Roycroft Mist Gray also in the décor and paint color scheme.

Benjamin Moore

Benjamin-Moore-Guilford-Green-Sitting-RoomThe company has already announced its Color of the Year for 2015: Guilford Green. Ellen O’Neill, creative director for Benjamin Moore, describes it as "A neutral that’s natural. A silvery green that works with, well, everything."

The color palette it comes from includes 22 new hues for 2015 within four collections. Guilford Green belongs to Ground Yourself in Green, which takes inspiration from "a citrus grove, a pot of lemon verbena, a sprig of silver sage." The hue shows up in just about every room in the example house, from the entry way to the enclosed back porch.

In Tried, True & Utterly New, tradition carries on but with a twist. Old Claret provides a pop of sophisticated pink in a bathroom and adds warmth on the walls of a living room.

Pittsburgh Paints

Pittsburgh-Paints-Blue-Paisley-Dining-RoomBlue Paisley takes home the Color of the Year title from this company. Described as "a lavish, almost-but-not-quite royal shade of blue," it will "play a prominent role in home décor trends for the coming year as homeowners look to positively influence their lives and decisions with vibrant hues," Pittsburgh Paints says.

It comes from the Co-Leidoscope trend palette, inspired by the taste of the exotic and luxury, global travel. The collection also includes Mother of Pearl, Bone White, and Curry Sauce.

The softer Good Life palette "emphasizes an earthen spirit and a respect for simplicity to uncover the maximum harmony between man-made and the natural environment." Oatmeal, Burnt Red, Holland Tile, Malibu Dune, and Curlew create color scheme rich in soft reds, pinks and whites.

When following a paint color trend, be sure to choose hues that you will love for years to come in order to get the most from this home improvement investment. Also keep in mind current furnishings and décor as well as any changes you envision making during the lifetime of the paint job.
