Spanish Moss by Krylon
Designers are increasingly seeing green as a popular choice. Some would even go as far as to say that green is becoming the new neutral. This deep forest green plays well with almost anything and pairs nicely with complementary colors such as sandstone, copper, and cold. Ashley Banbury, senior color designer for Krylon is quoted as saying “This midnight green has a strong connection with the richness of nature… Rooted in the renewing power of green it can balance with both warm and cool accents.”

Raspberry Blush by Benjamin Moore
Color marketing and development director, Andrea Magno says “People are ready to bring color back into the home,” and this bright and cherry color does just that. You can use this color to the max and cover the walls, trim, and maybe even the ceiling, or aim for a more minimal approach by painting the kitchen island this perfect accent color. Soft shades of white and beige perfectly balance this eye-popping number.

Terra Rosa by Dunn-Edwards
This delightfully rosy pink is accomplished by blending brown and burgundy. This grounding neutral is the perfect delicate accent. “We’re putting health and wellbeing first, making time for escapism and embracing nostalgia … This translates to design through lush, sophisticated touches with equal parts prettiness and drama,” said color expert and stylist, Sara McLean. You can use this color to create a sweet and cozy environment or show off a standout style and use it on the exterior.

Redend Point by Sherwin-Williams
Homeowners are more frequently turning towards earth tones to bring comfort and joy to interior spaces, and this blend of blush and beige is right on trend. With subtle pink undertones, Redend Point warms well. Try incorporating this color in your entryway for an inviting welcome or in another room as an eye-catching focal point.

Canyon Ridge by Better Homes & Gardens at Walmart
Orange meets pink and acts as a near-neutral with this southwestern landscape vibe. Canyon Ridge is a trendy take on terra-cotta that pairs nicely with any shade of bright blue. Revamp the entire room in the inviting pastel or go for a subtle accent by painting built-ins or even the ceiling.

Blank Canvas by Behr
In contrast to all the bright or colorful options above, Behr took the unexpected path with this creamy white. However, this warm neutral stands out from the icy modern hues that used to be popular. “Blank Canvas effortlessly offers a clean and inviting blank slate that allows individuality and creativity to flow freely. This white easily harmonizes with a wide range of hues, including neutrals, earth tones, and pastels for a charming and cozy appeal,” said Erika Woelfel, vice president of color and creative services.
