Color and Staging Trends 2019
Updated: Jan 31, 2019
Check out the Colors of the Year 2019 for Behr and Sherwin Williams and how you will see them in staging trends within homes over the next year.
Let's start with the Behr 2019 Color of the Year 2019, Blue Print
Blueprint which is a stylish mid-tone blue described by Behr as being an honest and approachable color. Behr's in-house color expert, Erika Woelfel, believes Blueprint is universally appealing, as it's "warmer than denim and softer than navy." Blueprint is able to work so well with other colors that you can layer in a second or third color to your decorating.
In the staging realm, it's a very safe color to accent a home with... especially any coastal home to bring in the ocean views.
All in all, Behr picked a VERY safe color that we can expect to see a lot of in the staging and design world. Since staging trends tend to follow the color trends and the paint companies are at the forefront of this, let's look at another newly announced Color of the Year...
Sherwin Williams Color of the Year 2019, Cavern Clay
No, you are NOT going to see this color on very many walls of a home, but maybe in an office space. You will see this color in accents of leather, wood tones, clay pottery, amber glass and pillows.
The Sherwin Williams color choice was a bold one but they know the pulse of color trends which is trending towards muted colors... both the Behr and Sherwin Williams Colors of the Year fit that trend. In fact, both of those color choices are complimentary in nature especially with similar muted tones...what do you think?
You know you're on the right color trend track when you see it mass produced...
The Hearth and Hand with Magnolia collection at Target is making a big statement this season following these color trend combinations. These small accessories in Blueprint and Cavern Clay tones make a big impact and will liven up any table setting. Pairing the natural rattan woven chargers with the blue glass plates and glasses brings out the contrast and just the right pop of color.
Cavern Clay can undoubtedly turn heads with its eye-catching color through décor made of wood, ceramic, leather and rattan while Blueprint shows off it’s color best in fabric, glass, linen and paint. You can spruce up any kitchen or dining table by sprinkling in these colors for a lasting impression.
