2019 Color Trends: Interior Designs and Styles With Paint

Over the last few years, millennial pink, forest green and even black have been touted as the hottest new colors for house paint trends.

While life’s too short to play it safe with plain white walls, you want to make sure you get it right when it comes to decorating your biggest investment. After all, the paint colors you go for can make or break the feel of your home.

If you’re ready to give your home an interior makeover, here are some of the leading 2019 color trends to look out for this year.


When it comes to color trends 2019, delicious shades of vanilla, buttermilk, and French cream are top of the crop. With a hint of soft yellow and a touch of nude, this creamy color palette is ideal for giving your home a warm and inviting glow.

It’s also versatile enough to work in different rooms, including your kitchen, bathroom, hallway or bedrooms. But, as expert residential painters will tell you, different home environments need different kinds of paint. As such, it’s worth investing in a professional service to make sure all your walls get the best color treatment.

For a modern look that’s anything but ‘vanilla’, this shade works best with dark wooden flooring, cool grey marble, and bold furniture.

Cornflower Blue

Another leading paint color trend for this year is cornflower blue. While people naturally gravitate towards blue, it can sometimes seem cold for your interior walls. Although, this particular shade has a hint of lilac, giving it a warmer edge.

Cornflower blue is also striking without being overwhelming, especially if you choose a more muted tone. We’d also recommend opting for a matte or eggshell paint to ensure that the color feels more subdued.

Cornflower blue works well for any room for the house, including the kitchen, bathroom or living room. It’s also a great choice as an accent wall in a bedroom. In terms of interior decor, this shade looks best combined with brass accents, tortoiseshell detailing, and a mix of dark and light wooden furniture.


With ‘Living Coral’ named as Pantone’s color of the year for 2019, it’s only natural that this vibrant shade is one of the top paint colors for 2019.

Somewhere between pink and orange, coral is an uplifting and optimistic color that’s sure to bring life to your walls. And, although it’s not for the faint-hearted, it’s more versatile than you might think.

While it could be a tough sell for a bathroom or kitchen, coral can work well in living rooms and hallways. It looks great against stark white furniture but also complements dark wood for a more sophisticated feel. And, if your child insists on a pink bedroom, coral offers a modern compromise that you can all be happy with.

Sage Green

Create a haven of calm for your home with this muted shade of green. With slight grey undertones, this color works well to create a sophisticated ambiance in living rooms and bedrooms.

It’s also ideal for a zen-style bathroom. Although you should avoid pale greens for your home office as green walls can reduce productivity and lead to stagnant thinking.

Mix sage green walls with soft textiles, thickly textured rugs, dark wood and a variety of plant life to tap into its soothing effects.


If coral is a little too bright for your walls, you might prefer terracotta, another popular paint shade on the 2019 color forecast.

Warm and luxurious, this shade provides the ideal backdrop for your home. It also helps bring the outdoors in, creating the feel of a sun-kissed Mediterranean patio or desert oasis for an instant lift.

Terracotta is perfect for decorating a relaxing living room or an inviting hallway. But, make sure you stick to matte or flat paint to hide surface imperfections. Complete the look by adding in heavy wooden furniture, worn leather, and plenty of greenery.

Dove Grey

Although dove grey is one of the hottest colors for 2019, this timeless shade has real staying power. As such, it’s sure to look just as fresh and sophisticated in years to come.

While grey can be cool, the warm undertones of dove grey give a soft and dreamy feel that will add a soothing ambiance to your home. As such, it’s the ideal shade for your bedroom walls or an inviting entrance hall.

Alternatively, dove grey would add a luxurious look to a kitchen, or turn your bathroom into an oasis you won’t want to leave.

Dove grey is also perfect for spacious living rooms. Combine grey walls with bare wooden floors, layered rugs, and plush furnishings for optimal comfort and relaxation.


Jewel colors like magenta, teal, and sapphire are popular choices for making a statement with soft furnishings like armchairs and sofas. But teal has now come into its own to lead the way as one of the top 2019 paint colors for your walls.

This bold shade of blue-green looks elegant in a hallway or living room, while updating your kitchen with teal walls is a stylish choice for a contemporary feel.

Mix teal walls with warm wooden furniture, polished floors, and accessories in pale greys and creams for a touch of sophisticated glamour.
