Color trend predictions for 2018 are popping up everywhere. From the fashion industry to the construction sector, we are surrounded by a variety of shades. Pantone released their color of the year: Ultra Violet, an intense shade reflective perhaps of our intense lifestyles.

Although we are not quite as intense, our colors will surely inspire the artist in you. Take a look at our 2018 stars:

Spice

Orange hues are poised to be one of 2018’s showstoppers. From vivid shades paired with gray tones to deeper, warmer tones combined with profound browns, oranges will be all the rage.  Our Spice color is bold enough to stand up against other shades and yet warm enough not to overwhelm your color scheme. Whether you choose this color as an accent or as your main color, you will not be disappointed.

Urban Blue

Blues have long been a favorite color for home exteriors but the 2018 shades are bolder, brimming with intensity. Our Urban Blue color has a luminous quality that can be further highlighted by pairing it with light trims and accessories. This mid-tone blue seems to shine from within, making it a lot less intimidating than its navy counterparts. Whether your style is coastal ease or modern chic, this shade will suit all styles.

Manor

Intensity will be on tap for 2018, although black is always a standard in design, this year’s shade is more complex. Our Manor color combines the deepest of grays with wisps of black creating a unique shade. A cool, dark tone that evokes contemporary sophistication this is not for the faint at heart. This decisive color will command attention, play up this darkest gray by selecting trims and accessories in light white-gray tones and add a splash of color for good measure. A red front door, an orange bench, be creative.

Java Brown

Browns have been a standard in exterior homes but what makes 2018’s color special, you guessed it:  intensity. This deep shade, marries dark brown with warm red undertones adding depth and dimension to this color. We have seen this shade being paired with a variety of trendy colors such as orange as well as steel blue. Don’t be intimidated by this shade, its natural warmth will come through and will envelop your home in a welcoming embrace.

Neutrals will continue to play an important role in exterior color selections however what we are seeing is that Grays have become the newest additions to this family. No longer reserved for earth tones, the various shades of gray are now the “it” colors. Here are 2 that we are sure will be standouts in 2018:

Taupe

A mixture of gray and beige created this neutral shade. Our Taupe color is definitely on the cooler side of the color spectrum, giving it a contemporary edge. This color is the perfect canvas allowing you to add accent colors and contrasting trims to create the ideal color scheme for your exterior. The versatility of this color will make it one of 2018’s most coveted.

Boulder Gray

A cool deep-toned Gray, this color conveys strength and durability. Our Boulder Gray shade has quickly moved up as a top seller in the few months it was released and we are predicting that it will remain as such for 2018. This shade of gray can be paired with a multitude of colors; choosing lighter trims will add a luminous touch and don’t be afraid to add vivid colors as accents.

From bold, intense colors to cooler neutrals 2018 will be filled with colors to inspire your inner designer. Remember, if these rich colors are too much for you, start small. Incorporate accessories in your desired color and move from there. Or be brave and jump right in to your “it” color! As we say “Life is Colorful” embrace it!
