The hot colour for the year 2013 is....

So 2012 was all about what are the hot colours that we will be seeing in home decor and design for 2013?

Monaco Blue!!  "It's calming, wonderful and an anchoring colour" says PANTONE Color Instituteā€™s executive director, Leatrice Eiseman.

So what are there any other colours that we will be seeing a lot this coming year?


Dusk Blue, Emerald, Grayed Jade, Linen, Poppy Red, African Violet, Tender Shoots, Lemon Zest and Nectarine are in the top 9 for this coming year.

We know that home fashion is inspired by what we see on the fashion runways, so what can we expect to see in terms of hot paint colour trends for 2013?  Bright and Bold colour.

Benjamin Moore's paint colour of this coming year is "Wythe Blue" from their Historical collection.  But Navy Blue is also a huge influence in home decor and this is a trend taken right from the runways (see Monaco Blue)

Colour is major in 2013.So here's the breakdown:

Your bold statement colours like red  and yellow (think bright yellow like lemon or canary not butter cream) are still staples but we will be seeing less of accents in red and yellow and more accents of pink, orange and purple - real throw back to the retro 50's and the soft feminine influence will be big , too. 

Green - Chartreuse is still going to be popular it's fresh and fun!  But Kelly green is going to be seen a lot more - it's a real attention grabbing colour that's perfect for highlighting smaller spaces or objects like shelving or small furniture pieces.

Neutrals: White, Grey, and Black are still popular but with these tones it's the finish that's changing this year.  The high gloss look is on it's way out and we are seeing more matte finishes and then paired with other neutral that are a little different like peachy-white.

For 2013, we will be seeing lots and lots of warmth in the colours even in the neutrals like grey, brown and white.  For trim, leaning towards warmer whites instead of cool-toned ones.
