2019 Paint Colors of the Year & the Wellness Connection include colors from Pantone, Benjamin Moore, Sherwin-Williams, PPG, and Behr. Have you noticed these colors of the year popping up around you in fashion or home decor? I’ve noticed an uptick of warm tones, coral, neutral gray, ‘moody’ greens and beautiful blues in fashion and in home decor. Notably, with this bouquet of trendsetting colors, there is a definite connection between wellness or wellbeing + interior design together with home decor products.
2019 Paint Colors of the Year, the Wellness Connection
First, Sherwin-Williams Cavern Clay. As white kitchens continue to trend, it’s a natural progression to add color. And with the light flooring, white cabinetry, wall color & tile the addition of Cavern Clay’s warm hue on the island brings in warmth just as a natural element would.
When used as a bold statement in settings and décor, Living Coral fosters immersive experiences such as pop-up installations and interactive spaces, tied to a playful spirit. As a color linked to tactility and human connection. PANTONE Living Coral in shag rugs, cozy blankets, and lush upholsteries create a warm, comforting, and nurturing feeling in the home. With its ebullient nature, PANTONE Living Coral adds a dramatic pop of color to any room setting. Whether in decorative accessories, tabletop, or on the wall.

Third, Benjamin Moore, Metropolitan AF-690. And as you can see this neutral gray tone provides a warm sophisticated soothing backdrop for pops of color. Gray has become a staple in home design in everything from paint colors to home decor products.
Fourth, PPG Night Watch. According to PPG Night Watch: Classic luxury meets the restorative power of nature in this trending deep green.
Not only does PPG offer a deep saturated green hue generally refered to as a “moody” paint color. But it connects to wellness in home decor products and design as well.
Lastly, Behr Blueprint. Finally, Behr has introduced a soft, deep yet rich and approachable blue, Blueprint.
According to Behr, Blueprint creates a space where you can build your own reimagined life—where awareness of what we want to build for ourselves can transform into action.
So all in all after nearly 6-8 months after the introduction of these 5 colors of the year their influence in the marketplace has been duly noted. As a result, what stands out in my mind is the connection between a sense of wellbeing or wellness and interior design including home decor products. We saw this connection trending many years ago with homeowners requesting “spa-like” interiors or “sanctuary” spaces for bathroom & bedrooms. However, good interior design has always been at the forefront of bringing a high quality of life into the home.
So, thanks for stopping by today! We hope you’ve left inspired ~ Nancy
