What Are the Hottest Interior Colors of 2013?

Last updated 5 years ago

Painting is one of the most affordable and cost-effective techniques for transforming the look and feel of a room. If you are undertaking a home painting project, color will likely play an important role in your room design. With that in mind, consider using one of these popular 2013 interior paint colors.

Light Lemons
Benjamin Moore selected lemon sorbet as the 2013 color of the year, and it is indeed a color that translates well into an interior paint shade. While bright yellow can appear overwhelming, particularly if used in excess, a lighter shade can appear both energetic and cheerful. Yellow can provide a nearly neutral background that will allow other colors to pop against it. Because of its bright nature, a lemon hue is perfect for a room frequently used in the morning or for a space that gets little natural sunlight.

Jewel Tones
Make any room more vibrant and exciting with the use of a bright jewel tone color. Whether you use vibrant fuchsia or a brilliant shade of turquoise, jewel tones can help to provide a rich and lush look. And, contrary to popular belief, bright colors can also be used effectively in small spaces, making an individual feel enveloped in color. In fact, in recognition of this trend, Pantone selected emerald as the 2013 color of the year. Incorporate the elegant shade into your space to take advantage of the benefits of jewel tone paint colors.

Natural Nature Shades
Bring the outdoors in with colors pulled from the outside. From chalky grays to light blues to earthy browns, pulling outdoor shades into your home can help provide an excellent and complementary color base for your entire home. Not only do these colors work well together, they also meld well with your home’s exterior, helping to create a seamless transition between your indoor and outdoor living spaces.
