With so many options, choosing the perfect color isn’t as hard as it may seem. To help you decide, we’ve put together a list our 11 favorite colors to kick off spring 2018 with vibrant color.
Turquoise has gained a steady following in recent years with everything from clothing to wall color and jewelry to lawn furniture. Originally revered by both the ancients Egyptians and Aztecs, this eye-striking combination of blueish-green will add a regal backdrop to any room. Turquoise fits well in any home due to its versatility with other colors such as gold and red-orange.
Looking for a more restrained style? Try incorporating olive green into your home. This verdant color provides a sophisticated feel when partnered with a neutral trim. The dark nature of olive green is great for gathering rooms, dens and libraries.
With most mornings spent in the kitchen, lighting can often prove troublesome when adjusting from night to day. Try enhancing the effects of natural lighting in your kitchen with the sunny hues of marigold – and no not the flower. This mustard yellow color sits at a borderline between both yellow and orange depending on the existing lighting. Use this useful trait to its advantage and pair it with soft shades of reds or even baby blues.
As Pantone’s 2018 color of the year, Ultra Violet is a must for anyone considering updating his or her home this spring. This dramatic shade of purple has the potential to transform rooms in ways that are truly spectacular. Couple the color with warm shades of yellow, orange and red for a vivid recreation of dusk or softer, smokier hues of pink and lavender for a tranquil escape.
This soft green is the perfect addition to any room in need of an interesting color. The subtle hues of green are enhanced by light in a natural way, perfect for pairing with other earth tones such as light browns or rustic reds.
Like many, you may be too afraid to commit to the bold tones of purple. If this is the case, did we find a color for you! Revamp your home’s entryway with the light purplish-pink hue of cloudberry. Too much sun can drown out the beauty of the humble nature of this beautiful color but when properly illuminated with indirect sunlight, cloudberry radiates a comfortable, warming glow.
For another great option to welcome the spring, try this beautiful baby blue in any well-lit room. Enhanced by natural light and neutral or white tones, oval room blue is a simple way to add elegance to your home.

As Sherwin Williams’ 2017 color of the year, you have probably seen taupe featured abundantly in style and home decorating magazines. An interesting mix of gray and brown, taupe is a neutral color easily paired with a variety of accents. Most commonly coupled with white, the dynamic combo provides rooms with a bold and elegant pop.
Looking to lighten the room but don’t want to settle for plain white? Stone white is a great option to tone down the shades in a room but not entirely eliminate color as a whole. Visually similar to classic white, stone white provides a room with a serene calmness in when put in any color combination.
This grayish-brown hue is the perfect middle ground between the previously mentioned neutrals – taupe and stone white. Perfect for spacious dining rooms or a cozy den, ramie adds an aspect of comfort unmatched by any other neutral.
