2017 Color Selections for your Dream Home Plan

Have you ever wondered how popular color predictions are made? Drawing information from multiple sources such as fashion, housewares and even automobiles, color forecasters research and compile this information to determine what shades we'll be using most in the new year.

As I mentioned in a previous blog, your personality type can be key in choosing a paint color. For example, paint categories with names such as 'Holistic' and 'Unbounded' in the 2017 Sherwin-Williams Color Selections are just two that can make a consumer feel more confident about the color choices they make for their dream home. The infographic below best describes these new hues:


If a popular neutral is what you’re searching for, the cozy shade that Sherwin-Williams is predicting to define 2017 is Poised Taupe SW 6039. This color is described as “Earthen brown combines with conservative grey and the result is a weathered, woodsy and complex neutral that celebrates the imperfections and authenticity of a well-lived life”.

On Pinterest, this is also known as “greige”, a hybrid of beige and grey, which comes in varying shades from light to dark.

These muted tones are reflected in many of the new home plan designs in the Sater Design Collection. Take for instance the neutral metal roof and light gray tones of the "Birchley" ranch-style house plan.
