Top 9 Paint Colors to Look Out for in 2019

What’s in store for homeowners when it comes to color trends for the new year? If the top paint company brands are correct in their predictions, we’ll be seeing everything from warm terra cottas to cool and moody blues.

Here’s a rundown of the top 9 paint colors to look out for in 2019, according to Houzz, and how you can incorporate them into your own home. We’re loving that the year’s top color comes from our partners at Sherwin-Williams!


Sherwin-Williams’ Cavern Clay
Evoke a mid-century modern-meets-American Southwest vibe with this terracotta hue. Use it in a bedroom or a dining room to add a cozy, warm feel, or try it on the front door of a house with white siding.

Pratt & Lambert’s Earthen Trail
This pink-orange hybrid color is a softer, tamer version of Living Coral, the eye-popping hue Pantone has declared the color of the year. Try working Earthen Trail into your décor in the form of throw pillows and accessories.

Dunn-Edwards’ Spice of Life
This rich and spicy color lends a great sense of warmth to any room. Try this dramatic color in the dining room, because reds are believed to stimulate conversation and appetites.

Clark & Kensington’s Pineapple Cream Granita
This pick is a soft, muted yellow shade that’s light and neutral enough to be used throughout the home. Try it as a wall color with crisp white trim to make it pop.

Benjamin Moore’s Metropolitan
Benjamin Moore’s pick is an adaptable hue that changes depending on the light and other colors in the room. It’s a light gray that can shift from gray to blue to green. It makes a fantastic neutral alternative to basic white.

Behr’s Blueprint
Behr’s cool blue hue brings some drama without going too dark or bold. It’ll work nicely in a living room space designated for low-key relaxation.

Kelly-Moore’s Peacock Blue
Bring on the drama with this sophisticated alternative to black or dark gray. Try going really dark on shiplap, on built-ins or in the study.

Dutch Boy’s Garden Patch
Incorporate the outdoors into your home with this gorgeous grassy green.

PPG’s Night Watch
We’ve definitely observed people going bolder with paint as of late, both on the walls and on interior trim. Try this moody turquoise as an alternative to navy blue.
