For many homeowners, they may be thinking about getting their home ready for a spring sale. This may involve a fresh coat of paint and some interior design to showcase your homes true value. When sellers paint their home prior to listing their it on the market, they may see which colours are in season. 2017 was the year many homeowners painted the interior of their homes grey. In 2018, there's a new colour palette in town, and it doesn't include grey!

You’re making me, Blush

The colour Penelope is a dusty rose shade that many are falling head over heels with. This simple, yet chic colour combines modern and class to any room. If you’re in love with this colour but the man of the house isn't, suggest styling a room with a blush coloured couch or accent chair, it may change his mind.

Deep, Vibrant Reds

The colour red has been a fan favourite for many years. However, red is a hard colour to paint. If you’re looking to add an additional personality to a room in your home, try painting a red accent wall. The fiery tones of red will help energize and add life to the space.

Shades of Purple

Pantone named Ultra Violet is the 2018 Colour of the Year. This rich, vibrant colour will add uniqueness and depth to many rooms. Whether your willing to commit to an all-purple room, or you’d rather experiment with purple accents first, this colour is sure to be a conversation starter.

Using Black as a Statement

All-black rooms can be gorgeous, especially in the right home. 2018 is all onboard for the sleek and sexy trend of black. Utilizing black as a neutral will work in your favour since the colour compliments nearly every palette. From black floors to black coverings, it is the easiest way to add a dramatic splash to any space.

Travel Inspired Pallets

Whether or not you're a jet-setter, the internet is the perfect place to view colour palettes of the world. If you live in Vancouver, your palette doesn't need to be nature-inspired or if you live in Toronto, you don't have to use industrial-inspired shades. It is predicted that 2018 is going to be all about going against the norm in terms of colour choice.
