Pantone’s Color of the Year

The top trending color of 2019 is a bit playful and lighthearted. This year, PANTONE ColorÓ of the Year is Living Coral (16-1546). It is vibrant, yet mellow color that provides comfort in our shifting environment. It is a nurturing color that appears in our natural surroundings and also displays a presence within social media. Be trendy this year and incorporate the color Living Coral into your home’s exterior!

Coastal Blue

Blue may be a bit bolder compared to more neutral shades, but it has grown tremendously as a choice for exterior painting over the past few years. Coastal blue brings a sense of serenity and peace to people, kind of like the feeling you would get from looking out over the ocean.

Forest Green

Love the great outdoors? Why not paint your home to match the surrounding colors of nature? Forest green is the perfect color for homes that also use some bold accents, like black shutters or a shade of red on the front door.

Snow White

No, not the fairy tale character, we’re talking about the pure white color (technically, it’s shade). For those who want a more classic feel, many choose the simple, but pleasant, look of white. The color snow white gives you a fresh, clean look that pairs well with various nearly any other color.

Make a Bold Statement

This year is all about bold statements. Make a statement with a bold siding color by using a mixture of light and dark hues. A light trim with a darker siding color can be a trendy look that accents your home’s features. Decide on complimentary hues at the light/dark spectrum to give your house the “wow factor” you are looking to achieve.
