Popular Paint Color Ideas & Hot Interior Colors for 2011

Posted by Kyle Design on March 10, 2011

In keeping with the theme of yesterday’s post, I thought it might be a good idea to see what new, hot interior paint colors are in style for 2011. (Actually, I came home yesterday and managed to convince myself that my kitchen wall was feeling drab – might just be time to freshen it up, so I searched for ideas online.) I’ve listed my top 10 findings below, with credit due in large part to the Pantone Spring 2011 Fashion Color Report. I honestly like ALL of these, so if you’ve got an opinion, feel free to help sway my decision!

1. HONEYSUCKLE – On the contrary, pink is indeed for everybody (men and women, kids and adults). It’s an excellent color choice if you want to perk up a room or just add a fun splash of color to your decor – our Personalized Quilting Tape Measure Gifts are a great example of this.

2. PEACOCK – A rich, deep teal like this makes a great accent color in an otherwise neutral toned house. For a subtle contrast effect, buy home furnishings accented with blue-green hues – like our Decorative Arts and Crafts Designer Switch Plates – and strategically place them around the home.

3. SILVER GRAYThe coolest neutral tone of the season, this traditional hue will work with any color scheme like the classic contrasted black as seen on our Personalized Scales of Justice Stamp Dispenser Box.

4. LAVENDER – Timeless, yet versatile, there’s a common consensus that this trendy color is always in style. In fact, our Lavender Colored Iris Letter Opener is a Kyle Design best-seller.

5. AMBER – With tones ranging from goldenrod to florescent, yellow is useful for attention-getting and drawing the eye to notice. It may not be a good idea to use this color in your bedroom – you might never get any sleep! – but it could certainly make another space more cheery (see our Elegant Amber Exotic Wood Monogrammed Valet Box for a great beeswax or butter colored furnishing idea).

6. ROSEMARY – According to the psychology of color, green is most associated with nature and it can therefore make any space seem soothing, comfortable or familiar. Try decorating your home with hints of green – like the Tree of Life Night Light with Gorgeous Green Stain Glass – to add an element of harmony to common spaces or bedrooms.

7. RUSSET – Brown shades and earthy tones add a sense of comfort to a room, not to mention style, so it’s a great shade to use for professional settings. Check out our Unique Eye Doctor Desktop Card Holder Stand for a stylish example.

8. REGATTA – A cool oceanside or boat blue, similar to that seen on our Cool Decorative Lighthouse Ceiling Fan Pulls.

9. CITRUS – Orange, in all of of its various and glorified hues, is apparently the “IT” color of 2011. Brighten your space with Bright Sun Kissed Orange Message Magnet Clips, which add a fun touch of color to kitchen appliances and office file cabinets.

10.AQUAWith calm undertones of blue, this serene hue adds a modern, playful touch without any drastic changes. Color it throughout the rooms of your house with paint or fun decorations, like our Personalized Paradise Anchor Holiday Christmas Ornaments.
