The latest trend in interior color is gray. The colors have gone from white and brass, to beige and brass, to beige and brushed nickel, then taupe and oil rubbed bronze (still popular), to gray and brushed nickel.
Another popular combo for the master or children’s rooms is a Tiffany blue with cream colored woodwork. Think of a Tiffany’s box.
The colors, for the most part, have gone much darker than we’ve seen in years past. It used to be all about light, bright colors and rooms and now the colors (on everything) all have a richer tone giving the home a more opulent look overall.
Cabinets are dark, rich mahogany; counter tops are darker. With most walls going to gray, you’ll see various pops of color throughout since gray goes with as many things as beige does.
I’m personally a fan of both styles. The new, almost cold, grays, blacks and silvers and the less recent taupe, mahogany and bronze.
If you’re looking to update your home to put it on the market, or just because you’re tired of the current style, feel free to walk through a few open houses and to browse through the hundreds of pictures of homes that are listed. To get the best idea, check out the higher price range homes or the brand new model homes. Most builders have a good handle on the latest trends.
