Popular Paint Color Ideas - 2011
Seasons change, the years pass and so do the popularity of certain colors. As decorators, designers, fashionistas and home do-it-yourselfers seek out new color ideas to express their sense of style certain colors seem to rise above others to establish color trends. These colors soon become popular paint colors for the home and office. Black, white and gray will always find their appropriate place and the pure primary colors, red, blue and yellow will refresh, animate, cheer and brighten any painted surface. But start mixing, blending, shading and toning those colors and new worlds of color are created. These palettes contain paint of interior colors and exterior colors though occasionally you will see some colors marked “for interior use only”. Each hue can be lightened or darkened to achieve the perfect paint color for a living room, bedroom or bathroom. Before making your final choice of color and painting a room or space paint color swatches on poster or foamcore board to evaluate a larger sample of color.
We finish up Sherwin-Williams'® 2011 popular colors with “Restless Nomad“. A global palette finds a home in this collection of vibrant, saturated pinks and reds plus earth tones and deeply shaded darks. We hope you will find colors to fulfill your painting ideas. You will find paint colors for bedrooms, baths, offices, kitchens and living rooms. Each color is identified by name and/or number. If a particular dealer is not in your area, other dealers should have close matches in their fandeck or the ability to match the color. If you cannot find the brand of your favorite color in your area send us your color's brand, color name and number and we will cross reference it for you with other manufacturers to find its closest match.
Travel to exotic destinations could be described as a bold adventure and so these colors could be described as a bold adventure into the world of color. The restless nomad will always find himself in someone else's culture. This color palette is inspired by the color culture of the world. A color to complement an artful tapestry or the persian rug in the dining room might be located in this world of colorful hues. The piece of furniture or niche that begs to stand out may welcome the presence of “Exuberant Pink” or “Alchemy”. Letting the imagination wander, where can you see a wall or ceiling with one of these paint colors? Is it possible for one of these to be your next living room paint color?
