Monday, April 30, 2012
Springtime doesn’t just mean a lot of blooming flowers and spring-cleaning. It can also mean a new paint job to give your home a fresh new look. And we’re not just seeing great color trends on fashion models but also on interior walls. So if you are looking to redecorate your home this season, here are some great wallpaper and paint trends to consider:
Pastels aren’t just for springtime or baby rooms. This beautiful trend can be great colors for painting the rooms for your home. To avoid the colors looking too childish, be sure to put a smidge of gray in them to give the color a much more mature hue. HGTV Designer Sabrina Soto suggested in a recent issue of Better Homes and Gardens, to pair the light and airy colors with dark and bold accents to make a statement.
2. Earth Tones
Just like all those animal prints and stunning neutrals are in style, so are earth tones for wallpaper and paint. Everything from grass greens, browns, tropical blues and sunny yellows are great colors to give your interior walls some outdoor attitude. If the bright, bold colors scare you, use the browns and neutrals on your walls and use the bright colors as accents. Need a tip to get your started? Use a throw rug or vase that you absolutely love to help chose your colors for painting and you’ll have your redecorated office or living room in no time.
The thought might scare you, but using metallic matte finishing or wallpaper can actually turn your interior walls into a stunning Victorian or Hollywood glam room if used the right way. Neutral hues such as silvers and grays can create bold statements in your room as well as wallpaper designs. Just be sure not to go overboard. Just remember the simple rule: less is more — you don’t want to overwhelm the interior walls.
4. Deep grays
Just like with neutrals, deep grays are great colors for painting you walls with. These hues are both simple, rich and go great with any color scheme you choose. Want to add a little more character to your shade of gray? Mix bold colors such as dark plums or navies with gray. This combination will add just the right amount of warmth to your interior walls.

They are compatible with any mood or season. Basics are always a safe choice for those wary of bold colors on their walls.
