“Painting a room in a new color is one of the easiest ways to completely transform the look of a space,” says Magno. Add a modern twist to your interiors with one of these versatile paint colors and give your home to refresh you’ve been wanting.

The front door of your small home or cottage can benefit from a fun color. You can also repeat the same color throughout your house as an accent in accessories. Benjamin Moore’s Coral Gables is a bold choice and would pair beautifully with navy blue and taupe accents.

Sherwin-Williams’ color story Unity, pictured here, is inspired by the connection of people and places. It beautifully pairs unexpected colors like striking blue, animated fuchsia, and creamy yellow.

Benjamin Moore picked the vivid Caliente as their color of the year. This lively shade of red is designed to stand out, but an accent wall in this fiery color can help energize and harmonize a space.

This statement-making shade of gray is truly a modern paint color. Magno describes it as “a gorgeous, cool gray with blue undertones that is fabulous on its own or paired with other colors.” Use it to complement both traditional and modern décor.

Your small bedroom doesn’t need an elaborate color scheme to be romantic. The most appealing bedrooms are often decorated in neutral colors. For a small space, a light neutral makes the room feel spacious and luxurious. Joanna Gaines’ Magnolia Home Carter Crème is a wonderful choice for a romantic bedroom because it gives you so many options to accessorize with color.

Even if you don’t have a dedicated foyer in your tiny home, you can use color to create a memorable entryway. Sir Drake by Joanna Gaines is a smokey green/gray that illuminates foyers big and small. Use weathered furniture and creamy white trim to bring out the moodiness of this color.

Black, in theory, sounds like it would turn your home into a bat cave, but keep an open mind. It looks super sleek on just one wall when you keep the rest of the room light.

This vibrant shade isn’t demure in the slightest, and makes a bold statement on the wall. Try a single accent wall in a bedroom, or fill an entire space with this forward-thinking shade. If you love blue but not this blue, check out our list of designers’ favorite shades.

The latest spin on classic white: Employing it on every available surface. Paint the entire room, including the walls, ceiling, trim and fireplace.

Farrow & Ball has a small paint color palette, but their colors are so rich and beautiful that you’re bound to find the perfect one for your small home. Farrow & Ball’s Pavilion Gray is a rich greige that works well for a dining room that’s decorated in either a contemporary or traditional style. Pair this gorgeous wall color with a modern crystal chandelier for a stylish juxtaposition in a traditional dining room.

Pinterest’s new “it” color makes a bathroom calm and tranquil. Why is it so popular? The greyish green color is soft and muted, but not boring.

Thanks to social media, everyone seems to be talking about travel. Even if you aren’t a regular jet-setter, you can still draw color inspiration from around the world. If you live in California, it doesn’t mean your palette needs to be nature-inspired or if you’re a New Yorker, you have to embrace industrial-inspired shades. In fact, we predict this year is going to be all about going against the grain in terms of color choices.

A deep gray shade of green, this unexpected color is surprisingly easy to style with most interior décor. “[It’s] a versatile color that pairs easily with both neutrals and bold hues,” Magno says. Test it out in the living room to see if the powerful color blends in with your décor.

‘Caviar’ is a black that’s on the cusp of charcoal, so it pairs well with dark grays and won’t contrast too starkly with furniture in deeper shaders.

Deep emerald isn’t going anywhere—it’s a timeless color that also feels modern. Try it on a floor instead of traditional wood.

It’s no secret that changing your paint colorcan change the entire look and feel of a room (Sherwin Williams found it’s the first thing people notice when they walk inside, according to its 2018 survey). But choosing just the right shade can be tricky. Let these experts’ recommendations inspire your next project.

We’re obsessed with this mustard yellow color — and Etsy predicts it’ll be huge this year, too. It has a retro ’70s vibe that infuses any space with happiness.

Benjamin Moore’s Color of the Year, “the captivating and upbeat power of red brings energy into every room it graces,” according to Magno. A truly bold color, this red will completely transform any room, whether you use it from wall to wall or as a simple accent. “Display color confidence in large or small ways with this classic yet dramatic hue—red never fails to make a statement,” Magno says.

If you need some help imagining how they might play out in your own space, look no further than the rooms below.

This year, turn to sunny goldenrod shades to make a cheerful, cozy statement. Warm, rich yellows feel organic and all-natural, and pair best with cream and blue accents, according to Valspar, which selected Golden Ochre as one of their colors of the year.

If your style is more traditional, olive green might be the right move. It’s also ideal for millwork and trim

Moodier tones are a thing for living rooms and bedrooms this year. Add patterned pillows, a colorful rug, and greenery for a Moroccan-inspired lounge.

A striped or stenciled accent wall can make a small room look larger. Using neutral colors, you can add interest to your space without overwhelming it. Try neutral stripes, or neutral on neutral painted stenciling, to get a unique look that draws attention away from the size of the room.

Powder rooms are so much fun to decorate. This is a room where you can really play with color. With the right lighting, you can use a gorgeous charcoal gray like Sherwin-Williams Peppercorn. Be sure to add white accents with towels and rugs to make the charcoal color pop. 

Some colors will never go out of style, including a clean, bright white hue of paint. Magno describes this particular shade as “a crisp white with the slightest touch of pink.” Allow this modern paint color to bring sophistication to any room.

Not quite white and not quite gray, this cool tone is undeniably modern. “A pale gray with the slightest touch of green, Moonshine is a subtle off-white that complements many materials and textures, making it a versatile, nuanced hue,” Magno says.

For something a bit more dramatic, paint your walls with a black shade of paint. “Whether on an accent wall or an entire room, it takes a bold and stylish person to opt for black,” says Magno. “[It’s] a chic way to accent other colors and make a strong style statement.”

The best home office feels like a retreat from your household responsibilities while maintaining a professional vibe.

In a small home office, light neutral colors with lots of white trim and natural lighting can give the space an expansive look and improve your productivity.

It’s official: pink is losing it’s gendered connotations. It evokes so many feelings that everyone can relate to, from joy to lust, making for the perfect mood-enhancing paint color.

“In Silicon Valley, Austin, Berlin and Beijing, techies are the new hippies, full of breakthrough ideas and utopian ideals,” Wadden of Sherwin-Williams says. “Connectivity is modern and playful, bringing in dark watery tones of blue that are balanced with neutrals, warm yellow and energetic purples.” Get tech-friendly, not just with your smart home devices, but your color choices, too!

Be sure to add natural accessories and surfaces like bamboo and stone for a spa-like workout or yoga space.

An overwhelming trend for decor in 2018 appears to be creating tech-free sanctuaries, where you actually find a little relief in unplugging and actually relaxing. Behr’s first-ever Color Of The Year, appropriately called In The Moment T18-15, is a casual and calm blue that immediately makes you feel more at peace.

Your master suite should be a relaxing retreat. Neutral colors are the best choice for a stunning and soothing space. Greige colors, like Sherwin-Williams Agreeable Gray, look beautiful in any light and with any decorating style. Keep your accessories simple for a serene getaway.

While Magno attests that people are moving away from the idea that a modern room is one that is covered in layers of bright white, she points to whites and grays as key trending colors in the home today. Although these shades are quite neutral, Magno says, “this leaves room for deeper hues such as navy blue, black, and deep blue-greens to enter the scene, along with gestures of bolder colors from the red family.” Take a look at these modern paint colors recommended by Magno to spruce up any home just in time for a summer design project.

If crisp white feels too stark and hospital-esque, we hear you. Stone white has a little more warmth to it, so it feels more inviting.

“This pale green-gray is both tranquil and elegant,” according to Magno. She recommends uses it in a living room or bedroom and pairing it with soft metallic accents. It’s a great way to experiment with edgy hues for a more dynamic look.

Pantone named “Autumn Maple” as one of its top shades for (surprise, surprise) fall, but the color looks fresh year-round.

Dubbed “millennial pink,” the peach-salmon hybrid refuses to go away. It can even serve as a neutral in your space, since it’s so muted.

These days, the word modern can mean a variety of different things when it comes to home décor, especially when choosing new paint. Some envision modern paint colors as pure white while others might picture dramatic deep hues. “Paint colors that are considered modern are not necessarily limited to modern architecture,” explains Andrea Magno, Benjamin Moore color and design expert. “Rather they are colors that capture a modern sensibility.”

Filling your home with vibrant colors shouldn’t be considered a design risk, and in 2018, Pantone predicts that it won’t be. In their Playful color scheme, you’ll find shades like vibrant yellow and lime popsicle that will bring you a childlike joy.”People need to stop and smile,” said Eiseman. Design doesn’t always have to be so serious!

Pantone predicts that 2018 will the year millennial pink shape-shifts into a stronger, more complex version of itself. “Pink has developed more power than ever before,” said Leatrice Eiseman, the Pantone Color Institute’s executive director.

Pantone’s 2018 color of the year is undeniably bold and beautiful. The company describes its pick as a “dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade.”

“In The Moment speaks to our society’s desire to disconnect and be present,” said Erika Woelfel, vice president of color and creative services at Behr. “It crosses multiple design styles — global, coastal, modern — and pairs well with other subdued colors to create harmony for interiors or exteriors.”

According to Pantone, metallics are no longer a dramatic color choice. In fact, they’re part of the “new neutrals” for 2018, says Eiseman. Whether your choose to inset your ceiling with gold paper, like the room pictured here, or add a few gold accessories throughout your space, apparently gilded is the new white marble.

“Sincerity is about mindful living and creating an environment to disconnect and recharge,” says Sue Wadden, Sherwin-Williams’ director of marketing. Soft, washed neutrals, greens and sanctuary pinks work together to create harmony.”

While 2017 was all about tropical green, warm neutrals, and sophisticated camel accents, color palettes took an edgier turn this year. Think fiery reds, metallics, and, of course, a lot of Ultra Violet — the Pantone color of the year. These home decor trends will continue to define the months to come and seep into 2019’s design visual boards.

Strong, radiant, and full of energy, this shade is the obvious way to make a bold statement. If you don’t want things to feel too dark, keep the rest of the room white for contrast.

Graham & Brown’s 2018 pick is Penelope, a shade of dusty rose that reimagines neutral home styling. This barely-there color combines the simple chic of ecru and the vivacity of a classic pink.

One of Benjamin Moore’s most popular gray tones, according to Magno, the modern paint color will freshen up any space. “This hue pairs beautifully with a wide range of other colors, or it can stand on its own in a room filled with other neutrals and white,” she says.

Sunny rooms are trending again. If it’s too bold for your walls, incorporate it into your furniture, instead.

A mudroom may feel like a luxury, but in many regions, it’s a necessity. If your small home is lucky enough to have a mudroom, you’ll want to choose a color that is fun and cheerful without changing the dynamic of your entire color scheme. A natural green like Joanna Gaines’ Magnolia Green is vibrant but still very natural. If your small home doesn’t have a full mudroom, you can create one by adding an accent wall of color, coat hooks, and benches with storage.

Pantone named Ultra Violet the 2018 Color of the Year, and it’s easy to see why. This rich, thoughtful shade of purple adds energy and depth to any room. Whether you’re adventurous enough to commit to an all-purple color scheme, or prefer to experiment with home accessories first, this complex hue is one to watch.

If you’re not ready to commit to a color as bold as black, start with a light gray that’s subdued but still makes a statement. “For a sophisticated look, Excalibur Gray has a slightly violet cast, making it ideal for a bedroom or bathroom,” says Magno. She suggests pairing this color with soft textures and decorative elements to complete the look.

Another variation of white, this hue is great for trim and millwork, especially when combined with additional cool shades of paint, according to Magno. The crisp white is a classic color that never fails to look effortlessly modern.

This shadowy umber shade is Valspar’s Charcoal Brown, a lush earth tone that feels both sophisticated and natural. Pair it with faded red and green accents for a relaxed room.

Not everyone is lucky enough to have a dedicated home gym. Many workout spaces are shared with playrooms, guest rooms, or home offices. The color you choose for your walls is the unifying factor for the room. Natural colors give a feeling of energy and ​make them a great choice for a home gym or yoga studio.

Black-and-white interiors had their time to shine, but 2018 is ready to give way to a new minimalist palette. Soft, washed pastels like mint greens and sandy pinks will totally reimaginesimple modern design in the coming year, according to Sherwin-Williams.

Ella Rose, the nostalgic pink from Magnolia Home Paint by Joanna Gaines, has a sweet style that would be wonderful in a guest room. Pink or rose may not be your choice for a master bedroom but works well in a guest room that’s used only occasionally.

There’s no denying we’re in love with all-black rooms, and 2018 is totally onboard with the sleek and sexy trend. According to Trendir, black should be treated as a neutral this year, considering it complements nearly any theme or color palette. From black floors to black chandeliers, it is the perfect way to add some drama to your space.

If you’re looking for a new idea in living room paint color, consider gray. Benjamin Moore’s Silver Mist is a cool gray color that has a modern look. For a small living room, a cloud-like gray can make it look light and large.
