Happy (almost) New Year Remodelaholics!  Cyndy here from The Creativity Exchange, back for my monthly paint color post.

I always look forward to a fresh new start with the coming of the new year and making my list of resolutions.  If you’re a DIY’er like me, your new year resolution’s probably include a list of home projects to tackle and maybe a couple paint jobs as well.

Today,  I wanted to do something a little different and take a look back at all of my contributor paint color post over the last year.  As you think about your own list of home paint projects, I hope one of my posts can inspire and help you as you make your paint decisions.

Every January, I like to take a close look at the trends in paint colors for the year to come.  Look for my trends in paint color post for 2016 on Remodelaholic next week.  In the meantime, here is my post for the 2015 paint color trends, which also include my favorite versatile neutral colors.
