2019 Home Color Forecast

HOUSE BEAUTIFUL by Danielle Tullo | I'm a play-it-by-ear kinda girl, and if you ask me what I'm doing next week, I'll quickly tell you I have no idea. But, if you happened to ask me what color I want to paint my apartment in 2019? I'd easily respond with SW 6827Elation by Sherwin-Williams, a pale lilac that's straight-up soothing to look at.

The paint brand highlighted 42 colors, spanning six palettes, for their Colormix Color Forecast, and — consider this fair warning — you're going to want to repaint your entire house.

"Our intent was to ask ourselves, 'If this palette were a person, what kind of person might they be?'" said Sue Wadden, the company's director of color marketing, adding that with this forecast, they hope to be "personal and aspiring, yet attainable — how all design should be."

Behold, the colors you're going to be obsessed with next year, based on what you're into:

This is Shapeshifter, a palette that features muted pastels with deep blues. According to a statement from Sherwin-Williams, the inspiration behind these colors are spiritualism and healing energy. I think that Elation could be my new obsession. Like, more so than how much I loved millennial pink. Actually, I think I just need to paint my entire apartment in this palette.
