As more people start loving the look of solid wood furniture, you can expect the popularity of green paint to grow simply because of how amazing it looks beside the wood.

3) Darker Blues

Light blues were popular in the past but we’ve seen an increase in the use of darker blue tones in recent years. Blue paint is a great way to give a room a nautical feel when moving near water isn’t an option. Darker blues look amazing when paired with black or gold accents. As with other darker colors, we recommend making the room has good lighting first in order to make the color work really well.

Blue as a color is very calming that can really work its magic to give your space a very royal and sophisticated feel to it.

4) Mauve

If you have indoor plants or like to decorate with green, having mauve-colored walls might work really well for you. Mauve usually works best for spaces like bedrooms or offices and it provides a very cozy and relaxing environment.

With plants, it’s best to go with a more neutral mauve color that has earthy tones mixed in. Mauve used to be used many decades ago and was really popular but it’s definitely seeing an increase in popularity again, just mixed with more neutral tones.

Limewash itself comes in many different colors and people love it because of the texture and feel it gives a room. The great thing about limewash that DIYers love is the fact that imperfections are part of the final look. Limewashing with earthy tones is something that we’ve seen more and more with clients as well as on social media.
