2022 Spring Trends
Spring is here, even if Michigan isn't ready for it!
As Brush Rite Painting gears up for 2022 projects we wanted to share some expert recommendations!
First things first, say goodbye to Chantilly Lace and flat yellows!
When picking colors gets overwhelming, our team recommends our customers think about the final vision. Some things to consider before you go picking samples:
What is the feel you want for your home?
What does your life style look like?
Do you have pets or kids?
Do you want spaces to look bigger, or smaller?
How much light do you want in the area?
All of these questions can lead you into deciding your theme! Another recommendation is to look on Pinterest or call Brush Rite Painting so we can set you up with a color consultation. We can help you decide if you want:
Once you know your theme, you're on the right path to deciding colors!
Spring trends have shown more preference towards shades with a calming effect.
Bold doesn't mean "in your face" saturation anymore! Instead, the term has taken on a
new meaning. While still blending in last year's minimalistic trend, pairing a lighter, warm
color like dusty pink with a bold orange as the accent color or trim, can make your home truly stand out, while still bringing in light. Trim accents in your home can make spaces look bigger when paired with the correct colors.
The opposite of this idea is the white-on-white decorations, or as the cool kids call it, the updated neutral.
The illusion of expansion comes from light bouncing on a mirroring wall to reflect a brighter color. White-on-white may sound boring to some, but in smaller spaces it can elevate the area and give off a more modern and cleaner vibe. This can elevate any home without looking boring, even using a white with a special undertone can still become an updated neutral as long as the hues aren’t to saturated.
Crown molding can be accentuated as well to match the color of walls for a
contemporary look that shows modern finishes to an old design. A great recommendation from Benjamin Moore is October Mist, while it is a neutral shade, it's still has a touch of green for a calming affect.
Minimalism suits most who have busy lifestyles and are looking for a serene
environment once they get off from work and get to relax home.
For those who love color and want to make a statement, a vintage theme is a great option!
Vintage colors usually have a saturated look and a warmer undertone to give off the look of something old, automatically welcoming the feeling of comfort.
Color pallets with muddy greens, or rusty reds are wonderful for a boho chic theme that invites guest to sit down and cozy up in a blanket. These shades are also wonderful to pair with other themes in your home since they can share commonality in undertones.
Another perk to a vintage shade this spring is the ambiance a bold color brings to your furniture! A color like Roycroft Bottle Green is a great example for vintage shade that adds depth.
For those who prefer a lighter vintage, Brush Rite Painting also recommends Roycroft Rose by Sherwin Williams for the perfect warm pink that still matches darks and lights in cool or warm hues.
Moving away from the vintage esthetic is the continuation of contrast for kitchen
decor. Last year's trends were heavily leaning towards navy blue and white, with cabinets being a bold blue color and the surrounding walls remaining a lighter, cool undertone.
This year shows similarity, but replaces the navy blue with something a little more enticing.
Customers so far have opted for dark cabinets and minimalistic walls that just open up
space for dinner preparations, and Sunday breakfast. Sherwin Williams has declared Iron
Ore as the color of the month for March, a beautiful addition to a home's most important
room. If you’d like more recommendations on cabinet colors, just take a look at our
