Bolder Interior Paint Colors Are “In”
For the last few years now, lighter neutrals have been king. It’s not hard to see why! They’re bright, create a feeling of space, and get along well with almost any other colors you’d like to introduce – the risk of clashing is nearly zero.
This year, however, we’re seeing the introduction of bolder, deeper colors that offer more personality of their own.
While introducing this kind of stronger palette can feel riskier, the payoff is huge. We would just encourage you to plan carefully, consult with your professional interior painting company, and really consider your overall goals before selecting a color.
How About an Example? Take a Look At Oceanside from Sherwin Williams
There’s so much to love about this color. It’s both trendy and timeless, and adds a beautiful, deeper element to nearly any space. Pair it with crisp, white trim and you’ve got a dynamite combination.
Here’s a video that shows just a bit of what this color is capable of.
Or, How About Caliente from Benjamin Moore?
Red paint is undeniably bold, but it’s also warm, inviting, and can create such a homey atmosphere. Just be careful! Red has been known to increase appetites, so your grocery budget might go up if you use it in the kitchen or dining room.

As we touched on above, the best choice you can make to guarantee the success (and quality) of your house painting project is to find a local, trustworthy painting company. They can help with color selection, insights to maximize your specific home and budget, and deliver a beautiful finished product.
