Which New Colors of the Year Will Reign in 2018?

The 2018 Colors of the Year have been unveiled! Now, take a look at what shades leading industry brands are calling the stars of their fresh, new color palettes.

Dive into Darkness with Deep Onyx

Move over millennial pink, we are ono bigger, better and darker things. Glidden’s 2018 Color of the Year is Deep Onyx (00NN 07/000) – better known as classic black. This most beloved neutral may be intimidating at first, but when paired with crisp white furniture, flooring and metallic home accents, black walls may become a staple in creating the contemporary home of your dreams.

Spice up Your Spaces with Caliente

Another bold addition to the 2018 Color of the Year family is Benjamin Moore’s radiant, lush Caliente (AF-290). According to color experts, this bright red hue is best paired with airy, peachy tones, so don’t throw out your millennial pink throw pillows just yet!

Turn Wanderlust Into Décor with Oceanside

Described by its creators as, “a complex, deep color that offers a sense of the familiar with a hint of the unknown,” Sherwin Williams’ Oceanside (SW 6496) is the true color of wanderlust. Inspired by thoughts of adventures in far-off places and dreams of tropical vacations, this rich, blue-green shade is destined to be a star in 2018. With beautiful glass tiles on the wall to highlight the color transforms any room into a seaside resort.

Live in the Moment

Taking a step back from the bold and moving more into the serene, Behr’s In the Moment (T18-15) adds some coastal calmness to the 2018 Color of the Year family. According to the color experts, “this comfortable color evokes a sense of sanctuary and relaxation amid our busy, always-on lives.”
