Hot, Hot, Hot...Paint Colour Trends for 2014

If you have been doing your research on what will be trending for 2014, I'm sure you know that colour is huge!  Colour is an easy and inexpensive way to express your style.  And paint will be no exception...2014 will be full of fresh colours, mainly inspired by nature.  Here are some of the top picks

BEHR has taken a lot of their inspiration from nature and in particular the seaside. Calming but fresh turquoise tones are emerging this year, some favorites from the Behr collection: Ocean Liner T14-1 South Peach T14-2 Miami Weiss T14-3 Edgewater T14-4 Sky Blue T14-5.  Try pairing these shades of turquoise with white and sandy beige for a true beach inspired space. Ideal in a room with lots of windows that's airy and well lit, see below.


Dulux is sticking with the green trend from last season. Ranging from jewel tones to soft mint. Green is full of optimism, energy, and vibrancy. the greens of 2014 will be more yellow based than blue and they will work best in open spaces/layouts, kitchens and family rooms.Sea Isle (10GG 57/307) by Dulux is a perfect example of a soothing yet vibrant green just like this contemporary dining room


Benjamin Moore is embracing the blue tones too but taking a softer approach.  They have found their inspiration through the air. Benjamin Moore is featuring softer and paler shades in 2014. Breath of Fresh Air 806 is a perfect example of the new neutrals that we will be seeing this year.  This colour is great for bathrooms and even a nursery or any space that is decorated with a bit of a country feel see image below.


 Farrow & Ball took their inspiration from the sea as well but with a classic twist.  These richer tones pair well with basics and neutrals.  This workspace is a bit more dramatic with the deep wall colour but it still has a timeless look.  Paired with painted furniture in neutrals or even stained natural wood give balance.  This would be an ideal colour for a study, master bedroom or a teenage boy's room.

Beauti-tone has embraced Shades of Grey (not the erotic novel, the colour) in 2014.  They are layering their grey tones to get a rich and sophisticated look.  In the image below, I love how they display a warmer grey and just an accent of a cooler grey, the linen grey upholstery carries the theme and the warm sea grass and sisal really add texture, what a relaxing space! I love this look in a family room or a cottage but it could also work in a less formal living room, too.  In this image: CZ3-0 My Favorite Sweater, CZ4-4 Hearth Stone, CZ7-0 Let's Get Cozy, CZ5-0 White Lite


PARA Paints has gone in a very different direction for 2014, they have really gone with brights.  their signature this season has a tropical flair.  Yellow - symbolizes optimism, happiness and sunshine.   Plantain Chips (PF52) is a perfect accent for greys and whites, great for painting walls but also for furniture
