Color Trends Create Fresh Home Ideas

Home design is something that’s always evolving with fresh color choices a huge part of staying current. Here’re some of the hottest color trends as seen in Carbine homes to inspire you as well as what’s coming up for 2019.

Back in Black

You may be used to black being a sleek accent color used to complement virtually any room, especially rooms filled with bold statement colors. Well, the rules are flipping the color script. Black is being used as the statement color. That’s right, don’t be afraid of a statement with black walls. However, if you’re not ready to fully commit to black walls, you can add some flare with a black rug and other sleek accessories.

Metaling in Metallics

Don’t be scared of weaving metallic and gold into your décor. Metallics are now being treated as part of the neutral family. Feel free to step out of the box with them too. Think about adding a fun gold wallpaper to your walls as well as filling your space with metallic accents. Don’t be afraid to mix metals either. Gold and silver can come together to create a sleek, classy, cohesive room. Make that room shine!

Perfect Pinks

This year the color pink has become a more complex color. It’s showing up in a variety of ways. Elle Décor discuses how Blush tones are being used as a lovely new neutral tone, and how pink  is even being used as a bold statement of power – which is something that Elle Woods would be very excited about.
