2016 Paint Color Trends
2016 is the year of new beginnings, clarity of purpose, spiritual insights and inspiration, so it is not surprising that WHITE is the color of the year. White is considered to be the color of perfection and simplicity. As Ellen O'Neill, creative director of Benjamin Moore expressed, " The color white is transcendent, powerful, and polarizing - it is either taken for granted or obsessed over. White is not just a design trend, it is a design essential. The popularity of white, the necessity of white, the mystique of white is quantifiable in our industry."
The Right Kind of White
The beauty of white lies in its many variations. Off-whites include antique white, cream, linen, beige, paper, snow, pearl and ivory and these can appear softer or less stark than pure white. In Omaha and Nebraska in general, depending on the direction your home or office, shades of white will vary from room to room according to the quality and type of natural light at different times of the day and time of year. We can help you decide which shade of white is ideal for each space you are looking to paint.
Glossy & Metallic Finishes
If you are looking for the WOW factor, think icy blues, shimmering pewter, sophisticated plums, and brass buttons glinting in the sunlight. Glossy finishes give mesmerizing outcomes. Metallic finishes will give your living or working space an instant feel of luxury. But, a word of caution - your walls have to be prepared by someone with great attention to detail because glossy and metallic type of finishes can easily show wall imperfections.
Elegance & Simplicity
The idea of living a simplified, uncluttered life is gaining a momentum. We are getting smarter by trading in our possessions, and the stress of keeping them maintained, in order to have money and energy for creating experiences with our friends and family. It is not surprising then that the softer grays, khakis, and blushed neutrals along with ancient alabaster and marble hues bring more warmth to our interiors, giving us much needed sense of calm and relaxation. At Walls2Floors, we are masters at creating beautiful Zen-like spaces.
Adding Value to Your Living & Working Space
Paint is the most inexpensive way to add great value to any space. There is more to value than just monetary worth. For example, when you are deciding on paint color for the interior of your home, you may choose eggshell finish over flat paint because you have children. In effect, you have increased the value of your home by making it more practical and easier to maintain. If you are selling your home, you may choose neutral colors to help you sell your home faster at a better price point
