As we get ready to begin a new year, many people are looking for a fresh start. New Year’s resolutions are being made, closets are being cleaned, and a lot of people are searching for a way to update the look to their homes. One easy way to do this is with a new paint color. It’s inexpensive, you can do it yourself, and if you don’t like it, you can just paint over it and start again!

But where do you begin? You want your new updated look to be on trend and not just the same old paint color that looks boring and tired. To insure your new paint will be fresh and exciting, look no further than the 2017 color trends.

Each year, Sherwin Williams releases their color forecast for the upcoming year. Dark, rich hues are taking center stage for 2017. Nordic blues and dark moody neutrals add a coziness and romantic flair to any room.

Sherwin Williams has also announced that their 2017 color of the year is Poised Taupe SW6039. They describe the color as an earthen brown combined with conservative grey and the result is a weathered, woodsy and complex neutral that celebrates the imperfections and authenticity of a well-lived life. Seems like the perfect place to start a 2017 makeover!
