There are countless ways to revamp a room inside your home using just paint! Paint trends shift from year to year, depending on runways, lifestyles, demographics, and societal trends. If you’ve been wanting to update your home using the latest interior paint trends, here are our top six picks to help you get inspired.

1. Pantone Color of the Year

Every year, Pantone releases a color of the year that many designers have incorporated in their work, from graphic design projects to interior home decorating. This year, the Pantone hue is vibrant, energetic, and uplifting: Living Coral (Pantone 16-1546).

2. Woodland Shades

Largely, interior paint trends have shifted from the bright palettes of last year’s theme to more serene and natural hues. According to Elle Decor, the 2019 trends to use in your home are “mushroom grays and fern-inspired colors.” Though this theme is starkly different from the Pantone color of the year, you can easily use your creativity to incorporate contrasting vibrant and muted elements.

3. Forest Greens

Sticking with the concept of more nature-inspired colors, consider incorporating a forest green into the color palette of your room. According to the same article by Elle Decor, applying forest green paints to your home can help bring the healing properties of the outdoors into your space, creating a relaxing atmosphere that you’ll never want to leave.

4. Geometric Paint

Replace your standard solid-color wall with something a little more intriguing. To create patterns, consider painting shapes, such as triangles, hexagons, or even semi-circles. Be sure that the color palette is still cohesive and use painter’s tape or a stencil so that the lines of your pattern are crisp.

5. Deep Blues

This year’s deep blue, dubbed Behr’s color of the year, is called Blueprint. The mid-tone blue is in between denim and navy and intended to represent “authenticity, confidence, and timelessness.” This type of blue is the perfect middle-ground between a too-light pastel and a deep, dark blue that leaves you feeling much more enclosed in your space.

6. Painted Floor Tiles

This trend can also be a time and money saver, giving you an option to update old tile floors without committing to the job of entirely replacing them. Paint over your outdated floors with stencils or a fresh coat of durable paint.
