Bright, Bold Tones to Color Your Year

Choosing a paint color from the swatch wall at a home improvement store is like trying to see the hidden image in a Magic Eye puzzle. If you squint just right and let your eyes go fuzzy, something interesting might pop out. Is it a butterfly or a dolphin? Grayish blue or greenish gray? For 2015, numerous brands have chosen colors of the year they hope will help you uncross your eyes and see new possibilities for your walls and your lifestyle.

Remixed Mauve

Bendheim Glass offers marsala back-painted glass for decorative partitions, and appliance manufacturer Dacor added the deep mauve to its ColorMatch program for appliances. “Marsala is a rich, warm accent color for any kitchen,” says Dacor president Steve Joseph. “The wine-infused earthy hue is luxurious, appetizing, and pleasing to the eye.”

Tropical Warmth

The team at Sherwin-Williams chose Coral Reef as its color of the year to reflect the country’s current optimistic outlook thanks to a rebounding economy, says director of color marketing Jackie Jordan. “It’s one of those bright, fresh, beautiful colors that makes you smile,” Jordan says. “And you can pair it with so many colors to make it very exciting or very calming.”

Beguiling Green

Guilford Green’s natural brightness earned it a spot as Benjamin Moore’s 2015 Color of the Year. The hue is versatile, able to stand as the main color for a room, or settle into the background to support other design options. “We were very intent on choosing a Color of the Year that was on-trend, but that is also relatable,” says Andrea Magno, color and design expert for Benjamin Moore. “There might be a color in fashion that’s very bold or vibrant, so you choose it for a sweater or a bag, but with paint this is something that a homeowner is going to have on their walls not just for a year, but maybe for five years or more.”
Choosing colors with longevity will help the room stay relevant over time.
