Benjamin Moore – Caliente

First up, is this spicy hue from Benjamin Moore aptly named Caliente. The strong color makes a memorable statement no matter the room. Use it to create a pop of color in an otherwise neutral room or go bold and feature the paint color in a space like the entry way below.

Glidden – Deep Onyx

Dark charcoal walls aren’t a new trend but we’re not surprised Glidden chose Deep Onyx as their paint color of the year. This hue sticks around because of its innate ability to make a statement while also remaining neutral. Deep Onyx is an especially gorgeous option for a small space like a powder room or office.

Dutch Boy – Sandstone Tint

Sandstone Tint from Dutch Boy proves there doesn’t have to be anything boring about beige. This paint color creates a clean, modern back drop to display all of the other elements in the room. Focus on bringing other natural fibers and textures into the space to enhance the effect.

Last but not least of the 2018 paint color of the year selections is In the Moment by Behr. The combination of blue, grey and green tones creates a soothing tone that’s suitable for both interiors and exteriors. Take a chapter from Joanna Gaines’ design book and use it in a dining area or add visual appeal to a stone exterior by painting the front door.

  1. I like the Oceanside paint colour especially for furniture. I know black walls are on trend but I’m worried that they will make my house too dark.
