Trending Colors for Your Home in 2017

If you’ve recently moved into a new home or want to breathe new life into an old space, consider repainting. These on-trend colors are designers’ picks for this year—speaking to clients’ personalities and evoking a mood. Rather than the simple neutral tones that have defined spaces for so long, choose one of these new trendy color palettes for your home to show off your style and character.

Windsor Pink

This beautiful shade of pink, a peach-salmon hybrid, has been showing up everywhere. It’s a little more subdued than bright or neon pinks and can act as a neutral. Sometimes known as millennial pink, this shade of pink can be a staple of your home.

Courtyard Green

This shade of green is a deep emerald that has historical context. You can find it around the world, everywhere from 17th-century country homes to modern Californian houses. This bluegrass green shade is perfect on floors or as an accent wall, as it is rich and beautiful.

Stone White

If your new home has a room without much natural light or you need to reflect light in your home, stone white might be the shade for you. It creates the appearance of natural light, magnifying any light that is present while being earthier than a dull white.


Blue is simply in—and shades of it abound in 2017. Dusk is a gorgeous pale blue that doesn’t inspire the same fear that bright blues seem to put in many homeowners. Paint your kitchen dusk or use it in the bedroom for a relaxing feeling as you go to sleep.


Paint brand Benjamin Moore’s color of 2017, Shadow, is a rich, deep amethyst. It creates an intimacy in any space that immediately draws you in. Use it for a dressing room, to layer a space as an accent wall, or to make space feel more premium and luxurious. This adaptable plum shade can work in many different situations, as long as you pair it with softer or brighter colors, alternately.


Purple can mask other colors, especially when it’s too dark, but light purples and violets are in season in 2017. A light shade of purple like cloudberry blurs the line between masculine and feminine and transcends age groups. Choose violet to highlight a living room or brighten your kitchen; it’s extremely versatile.

Inner Glow

Yellows, which can evoke the sunniness that people want in their homes, are back in 2017. Everything from pale butter tones to dark yellows are becoming popular this year. Use these tones throughout spaces like the kitchen, carrying it from your walls to the furniture to finish off space.

If you’re looking to change up your home or add some new color to your space, these beautiful shades will help you transform any room. These beautiful colors are on trend for 2017 but will be beautiful in your house for many years. When it comes time to sell, buyers will love the colors as well.
