2017 Colors of the year

Poised Taupe

2017 home décor trends are all pointing to one thing: a feeling of coziness. More and more interior designers as well as homeowners want to create a cozy lifestyle to diffuse the outside stress. The trends also point towards ‘lived in homes’. What this means is people do not want everything to be spic and span. Instead; they are actually looking for weathered, lived in homes with cracks and crevices each of which tells a story. According to color experts at Accessa, lived in or weathered homes evolve harmoniously and create the best atmosphere of coziness. With this philosophy in mind, interior design experts have come up with Poised Taupe as the 2017 color of the year. Poised Taupe is a combination of grey and earthen brown- a complex combination that ‘celebrates a life well lived’.

Byzantine Blue

According to Glidden Paint, Byzantine Blue is the perfect color for 2017. It is ideal for kitchens, living rooms and even the bedrooms. Although the name says Blue, the color is more of purple. In fact; it can be said to combine the best qualities of blue, purple and gray and this combination makes it ideal for several rooms and even the office.
