Colors Your Neighbors Love
There is no question that greys, browns, beiges and soft-toned nature colors are currently the top trending colors for interiors. These colors are relaxed, calming and easy to use with most furniture and accessories. These colors also cross-over well if you are updating a room using classic furnishings and want a more modern vibe.
We thought it would be helpful to ask our color experts, those that color consult with you everyday at Diamond Vogel Service Centers to offer their top picks of the colors selling in their markets, giving you a list of tested colors that your neighbors love.
Here is what is trending in these markets:
Candace C. from Ames, IA
“Lots of greys are big right now. We are selling 0196 Overgrown and 0197 Thistle Gray. Grey is important in clothes and bedding currently. Accessories have lots of bright colors and grey goes with it all and really looks great.”
Katie A. from Maplewood, MN
“Stone colors like 0421 Silverado Ranch, 0448 Ice Flow, 0198 Young Colt, 0205 Wood Shadow and darker greenish/blues like 0465 Earthen Cheer, 0471 Miracle Bay, 0472 Micropolis (my favorite) 0485 North Beach Blue and 0486 Paradise City (my second favorite!) They’re handsome, versatile and not beige!”
Rebecca V. from Fargo, ND
“Grey tones are very popular here. We are seeing a lot of interiors of whole houses painted in this way. We are using 0539 Place of Dust and 0540 Praise Giving.”
Joann R. from Scottsbluff, NE
“I love the oranges like 1008 Mango Tango and pink that a few brave souls are using. Mango Tango is surprisingly versatile, I painted this in my home; it goes with purple, green, brown or charcoal accessories.”
George E. from Green Bay, WI
“It seems beiges and taupes remain more popular. These colors seem to blend with most interior furnishings. We are selling 0537 Dove’s Wing, 0418 Onion Skin, 0538 Santo, 0341 Loch Ness. These colors seem to have worked where the user is a bit shy of stronger colors.”
Faith C. from Sioux Falls, SD
“Sea colors, softer grays and gray-browns. A lot of our decorating market is currently showcasing natural elements such as grass-twines, leather, dyed palms and jeweled tiles. Influxes of new residents from the East Coast are causing more contemporary, darker stains and cooler palettes.”
Sherry L. from Omaha, NE
“I think we have moved away from beige and tan. The greys have again been noticed as a neutral with all the choices that opens up. Warm greys 0539 Place of Dust and 0541 Smoky Tone and the cooler 0524 Nomadic Travels and 0525 Marseilles. These are great backgrounds.”
Joe P. from Longmont, CO
“We enjoy the lighter browns and heavier off whites. They work with everything. These colors cover great and work in any application and are a calming, soothing type of color we can all appreciate at the end of the day.”
