Are you ready for the glory of spring? Then come check out the best spring 2019 color trends and find the perfect update for your home. These colors are versatile, trendy, and still hold a classic theme that won’t ever age. The added bonus, however, is if you do want to change it in the future, all you need is a new coat of paint. Read on for the best interior spring painting colors for this year.

On The Topic of Color

We’re of the mind that you shouldn’t just leave a wall blank like a canvas. Everything should be about visual interest and create a balance of negative space and impactful design choices that make people stepping into a room for the first time ooh and ah. This spring you can sway either way and make your new paint colors bold and bright or subtle, understated and elegant. Don’t worry, we’re happy to lend a guiding hand to find the classic colors you’ll be able to use for years to come.

Hazelnut Is Key

Negative space is big right now and so is minimalism in general, but that doesn’t mean you have to commit to cold whites all over the house. As lovely as the color of sugar or fresh snow can be, the southern sun looks better on some warm and welcoming tones. Enter hazelnut, a creamy more subtle hue that can still provide that light color on your walls to balance out design details with finesse without making the room feel too chilly or starched. As a paint color, it’s entirely unlikely it’ll ever go out of style of clash with the furnishing you already have in the room. When trying to pick out the best rooms to add a spot of warmth in, see where more natural light needs to be reflected and start there. Hazelnut has a creamy yet delicate way of making natural light look brighter and thus more inviting in darker rooms with smaller windows.

Bring In The Forest

It’s not uncommon for many areas in the south to be heavily wooded with a dense growth of what can only be called the quintessential forest. Thus, it’s no surprise that bold, demanding greens can look so charming in many of your rooms. Rich hunter greens with cold, washed out tones have become a designer hotspot for the first time in several years. It’s essential if you’re wanting to give a room a lush, yet calming appearance regardless of the furniture or other trimmings within the room. It’s a strong, rich foundational hue that can surely make your home interior design feel more fluid. We like this best in rooms like a well-lit office or a library. Green is a very calming color and can even fit well in a bathroom or bedroom that is gifted with plenty of natural light already as it’ll give the hue different shades and a different type of beauty for every different hour.

Dove Grey

This tone of grey has just a spot of purple tinting to it which makes it add more visual interest than any of its other warmer or colder counterparts. When you see a proper dove grey painted room, you’ll likely notice first how much more welcoming this grey feels and the cheery color of it. Fortunately, it looks good in all colors of light and has very little variation and thus makes a great rock or neutral in your home. It’s subtle too which makes it hard to tire of and can be both minimal and eccentric when needed.

Washed Out Blues

The designers like to label these colors names like “mist,” but it’s merely a different colored white that’s meant to add characteristic layers without being overpoweringly white. It’s not quite an easter egg hue, but they certainly fall in the realm of pastels as they’re light and airy more than anything else. It makes a better, more interesting version of white that you can still layer color on top of. Have an African tapestry you’re hoping to hang on the wall, it’ll fit just fine over this color, but so will more modern neutral tones like metallic paintings and brushed metal accent looks too.

Warm Neutral Clay Tones

Earth tones don’t always have to be dark green and the colors of coil. They can be lighter browns like this clay tone that we’re wild about. It’s a better alternative to beige and plain chocolate brown because it negates any colder hues and replaces it with dark, warm undertones that make the lighter resulting color a point of visual interest despite being quite a neutral color. It easily provides elegance and poise without being too overt. It’s an exquisite mixture of terra cotta and clove with caramel undertones that makes it singular and still easy to decorate with.

Plain Pewter

We’ll be the first to admit it, the modern era is obsessed with the powerful tones of grey. Hence pewter’s rise to popularity. Many like to call it a “grey-beige” but we think that undercuts it. Like many other alternatives on this list it’s a great alternative to plain white and knows how to highlight the real beauty in natural lighting and your trimmings in the room like the rug, the curtains and more. Most importantly though is it’s such a subtle tone with so many built up hues to get it to the proper color that if you compliment it with an accent wall that’s either darker or lighter or get truly creative with it and start working with your ceiling, you won’t be sorry. We think this is a great medium-hued color, which is the perfect transition before you decide that you’re ready to paint your cabinets yellow or something even more exciting. It’s a first step away from boring old white paints and toward the modern look you may be hoping for but are a touch timid to pursue with too much vigor.
