The color trends for the next year highlights brown and tan, yellow, green, blue, orange and steadfast classics like grey, black and white.

· Brown (rarely called dark orange) is a warm neutral color that represents wholesomeness, simplicity, dependability, friendliness and earthiness. Using the color brown and its color family (tan, beige, taupe, etc.) can make excellent backgrounds helping accompanying colors appear richer and brighter. It is always considered a fall or autumn color, so if you are intending to paint your house on the said season, it could be a great idea.

· Yellow is always sunny. This color means joy and happiness, and symbolizes knowledge and wisdom. Yellow is a summer color. If you’re painting your house, the color yellow would likely be suited in your receiving area or work room, or any room where light is freely emitting.

· Blue is a cool and calm hue. This color represents inspiration, sincerity and spirituality. The color blue is best represented on winter and spring seasons. The effect of the color blue – depending on its shade or tint –, makes time pass more quickly and can make or help you sleep. This idea is fit to paint in your bedrooms and very much suited if you have a baby room (use the lightest tint of blue like Baby Blue).

· Orange is a vibrant color along its relative color values yellow and brown, which denotes energy and warmth and reflects the color of autumn/fall and summer. For your house, you can paint orange in your dining area because the color stimulates appetite. This color demands attention, stimulates the senses, and used as a healing color. This is a reason why orange walls are eminent in spas and relaxation centers.
