Each year new shades and tones make their way to the market, but how are you to decide which shade will reflect you the best? There are a few things to consider when it comes to color: How much lighting does the room already have? Is it a communal area? What mood do I want this room to convey? What size is the room? A good rule of thumb to remember is that lighter shades are used to bring in light and visually expand the room, while darker shades lend a more sophisticated vibe but will make the area seem more compact.

Right now the most sought after colors are soft muted shades that include several variations of white, buttery creams, earthy shades like mocha, caramel, and rosy blush hues. On the darker and brighter spectrum, poppy reds, copper, rust, pistachio and bell pepper greens, as well as serene aquamarines are also fashionable.
