When decorating a home, many people are afraid to use anything but neutral colors. After all, choosing a paint color is like buying a new car. You have to love it 100% before you buy it so you don’t have to go through the complications of selling it after only two years.
Painting takes commitment. You don’t want to choose the wrong color because in two years you could be bored of it, or feel it no longer provides the same energy or personality to your space. If done right, though, adding color transform any room.
Check out our top picks of 2019’s trendiest colors below and see which ones you want to incorporate into your home this year.
