Exciting Color Trends for 2015 from Top Designers

Location: Atlanta, GA, USA
Choose paint colors straight
from the 2015 runway!
11 top designers have been asked to predict the design color trends of the upcoming year. From olive greens and bright patterns, to "Monet meets Molly Ringwald," these chic combinations may be the next big thing.

Palettes of colors from the 1960's have been spotted, giving shades like olive and orange new life. Some like a little touch of sour green mixed in with anything, (blue for example), for a fresh, bold look. Some will be looking back to the pastel pallette of Los Angeles in the eighties and adding pops of neon, for a sort of "Monet meets Molly Ringwald!" Then there are the Renaissance-painting-inspired combinations of greens, plums, cerulean blue, beiges and whites- and the mixing of patterns and textures...

These are the 2015 color trends you NEED to know NOW!!

Exterior House Painting Ideas and Colors

Location: Atlanta, GA, USA
Get creative with the
exterior painting of your home!
The exterior walls are one of the most important features of any home because they are the first thing that someone sees when they visit or pass by your house. Maintaining a beautiful exterior is important for the curb appeal of your home and to preserve an attractive look that neighbors will be envious of.

Another important aspect of your home's curb appeal are other outdoor features such as decks, porches, pools, landscaping designs and other exterior aspects of the house. One of the best ways to spruce up the outside of your home or add to its style is to apply a fresh coat of paint.

Almost every outdoor feature of your home can be painted including the deck, pool, concrete and walls.

One of the best ways to determine the color you would like to paint your home is to look at a design gallery of exterior house colors. Looking at images of houses will give you inspiration for your home and provide you with examples of the most popular outside paint colors to choose from. 

Traditionally,the best paint colors for homes are lighter shades of any hue because the pastel colors tend to attract less light and heat than darker ones, preventing sun damage. Great outside house paint colors are neutral shades such as tans, whites, and creams because they work well with simple landscape designs with lots of plants and flowers and highlight the vegetation, rather than taking away from them. However, many homeowners also choose to get a little more festive with their painting, choosing exterior paint color combinations of one main, bright hue with an accent shade that is lighter and complements the home well.

If you are unsure of what colors to choose or combine when painting your home, remember to look at pictures of exterior paint colors to get an idea of what style you would like use.

For those homeowners who are not interested in taking on a huge painting project, keep in mind that other areas of the exterior of the house can be painted as well.

2015 Color Trend Report

Location: Atlanta, GA, USA
Do something stylish
with your professional
interior paint job.
This Color Trend Report predicts the colors that will be gracing the walls of homes across the country next year.

Spring/Summer 2015 color trends aren't just for the runways.

Paint color authorities have released their 2015 Color Trend Report, highlighting the four color palettes that they predict to be most stylish.

Will these be the most popular paint colors of 2015?

  1. The Nuanced Neutrals collection features weathered, rustic colors including a dusty aqua and light tan ideal for walls, when paired with charcoal, copper, and citrus orange accents.
  2. Keep the Frosted Pastels collection from feeling too sweet by adding zesty bright accents and dark touches of mauve or black for extra dimension.
  3. The Deep Dreams collection includes serene and dreamy colors like teal, charcoal, and eggplant that are meant to evoke a mystical atmosphere. In a bedroom, the colors help create a relaxing feel when mixed with white trim, richly patterned textiles, and metallic gold accessories.
  4. The Social Brights collection features energetic, eye-popping colors that help create a lively place for conversation—perfect for a dining room. Best used sparingly, you can balance out the brights with neutral shades of gray on adjoining walls, trim, or the ceiling. These six colors are also perfect for painting small decorative accessories for a pop of color on shelving displays.

Need Inspiration for a Festive Interior Paint Job? Focus on Shining Up the Ceiling!

Location: Atlanta, GA, USA
Go for glossy...
Here are some excellent suggestions on how to create a festive atmosphere for the holidays — and all year 'round — to every room. For starters, focus on what often gets left bare... and give it some flair:

Look up and celebrate the ceilings!

Let the ceilings sparkle. Add shine and sophistication to dining spaces by painting these often bland areas with a high sheen product. If you are not quite ready to change your entire ceiling, add a stencil pattern in a glossy hue for a touch of high style.

Similarly, as the trim around a room and the doors are also often left white or neutral, add a glossy frame!

Artwork is always improved with the addition of a beautiful frame, and your wall space is no different. Update a room by adding color and shine to trim work and doors — the "frame" around the room. Highlight these areas with semi-gloss or gloss paint in a complementary hue to the wall color. Glossy finishes add sparkle and interest, and assist in differentiating one space from another. They also provide the added benefit of durability and long-lasting wear, especially in busy family gathering spaces.
