Color Trends in 2016 – It’s all about the White but How Do You Choose?

Color Palette

It should be simple as black and white. You need to use a white paint to decorate your apartment but upon your arrival into the do-it-yourself store, you are faced with so many different shades of white paints. Confused? You will be.

It wouldn’t be so bad if it boiled down to being simply “spoiled for choice”, only here you are left wondering whether to select an eggshell white, ivory, brilliant white, bright white or even a beige. How on earth have paint designers and manufacturers come up with so many different whites? Apparently, there are over a hundred different ones to choose from.

Shades of color white

Now, we can accept there may well be 50 shades of grey or several shades of just about any other color (save black) but over a hundred different whites? Surely there has to be some sense in this somewhere?

Believe it or not, there are people out there who call themselves colour consultants. These sort of artists will definitely help you out on the best colors to use when designing a living room, bathroom or bedroom.

These color consultants and paint manufacturers even have a Color of the Year award. We find it jaw-dropping to believe there are those who actually dress up in a tux, attend a gala award night with individual private cabaret seating and listen to some CEO guy unwrap an envelope and announce the winner of this year’s Color of the Year…awesome.

Glidden white “And the winner is [long pause] Cappuccino White!” Apparently that was the color selected by paint manufacturer Glidden Paints for its 2016 award. But seriously there really are ways where you can select the right white for your room. Think about crisp white for a country kitchen, using too much sheen on your white may show up flaws and a warm and creamy white for bathroom or living rooms. Go down this road and it really will be all white on the night! 🙂

Just be sure to have fun and get your family and friends opinions too. Happy painting!!
