Interested to see the paint color trends for 2013? Traverse City Painter M. Skyler Forts Fortified Coatings brings years of experience in commercial and residential painting to help you select the best from the 2013 color palette for your project.
Every year the major paint companies work with top designers to create inspired new color themes for interior and exterior environments. These design consultants forecast trends and help select the color combinations for each paint company to highlight and sell for the next year.
For 2013 the trend across all the top paint companies Benjamin Moore, Dulux and Behr to name just a few seems to blend traditional color choices with more modern interpretations. Updated, stylish rooms or exteriors are easy to achieve when you select the latest in paint colors for a professional Traverse City painter to use.
2013 Traverse City paint trends may be divided into these categories:
Urban chic The single hottest color for this year is a rich yellow straw. Rather than the yellow of an egg yolk, the soft golden hue favored this season is a fresh take on a bright standard. Think butter or ripe grain for this modern spin on yellow. Paired with a deep navy the stylish contrast is a sophisticated scheme for anything from a sitting room to kitchen.
Modern nostalgia Fab fifties chic with dusky blue or a soft coral is given a modern twist. Instead of contrasting these colors with a crisp black and white like decades ago, offer contrast with soft natural tones for the trim and ceilings.
New natural For many years the palette inspired by nature was comprised of terra cottas, hunter greens and rich mocha browns. This year natural channels a gentler interpretation with brown leather or camel, pearl-like whites, soft sand dunes or pale seafoam. Gray is also monumental this year, appearing in color schemes from dark gray, granite, pebble, steel to dove gray.
Another interesting trend for 2013 is opting to use paint finishes rather than tile or stone for accents. Beautifully designed stencils decorate kitchen backsplashes or even ceilings for interest, while color is being used to boldly outline doorways or differentiate wall spaces.
