This is deemed to be the color scheme that gives off the greatest air of tranquility and Behr says it is inspired by the colors of the coastline, which naturally include the soft shades of blue associated with the ocean sky, whites that encapsulate the color of gorgeous beach sand, and sea glass greens. This color selection is great if you are looking to give your home that ‘vacation look’ all year round. You should pair it with driftwood, sea glass, and carefully selected furnishings.

This collection of colors has been described as a natural evolution of the industrial modern décor into a pattern that feels more relaxed and modest. Behr states that this color scheme has been inspired by the return of home crafts and back-to-basics, so the colors are weathered and earthbound. If you wish to get the best out of Urban Alternative, try and pair the colors with filament light bulbs, distressed wood, and raw metal finishes.

According to Behr, there has been a major increase in homeowner’s desire to recreate the historic designs from the late 19th and early 20th century eras, much in thanks to the influx of television shows revolving around that period. This color scheme places an emphasis on elegance, drama, and romance, which can be spread across every room in your home. You could use Grand Reign to showcase a favorite room in your humble abode to give your space an exquisite and classical feel. A feature of this pattern is the luxurious detail and ornamentation and the result is a masculine look, though you can alter it to give off a more delicate and feminine appearance. To get the most romance and mystery from this look, pair with gilded frames and layered textiles.

Natural Avocation

The last of the four Behr trends is inspired by science and nature, a mix of geological wonders, and majestic celestial events. Local and exotic flora and fauna motifs help to express this feeling and if you possess a curious mind, you will enjoy a rich and rewarding experience. This is especially the case if experimenting with colors helps your creative side to come alive. There are a number of different design elements included in this color set and for the best results, pair them with plant and bird illustrations, antique books, and weathered maps.

Each of the four trends has five unique colors, so there are a total of 20 to choose from.
