Valspar: Why have one color when you can pick four! Valspar presented four palettes—Simply Perfect, Comfort Zone, You Do You, and Good Company. "There's no question that gray is the dominant shade of the decade and today's default neutral," says Color Strategist Sue Kim.

Olympic: Want a pop of color? Olympic® Paints’ 2016 Color of the Year is the loud and impactful Blue Cloud (D48-5). This daring, adventurous hue supports a larger-than-life persona yet adds the perfect pop to various styles and palettes. 

Dunn-Edwards: We checked out what Dunn-Edwards had to say. Their 2016 color and design report tells us that interior color in 2016 should exude confidence with strong, darker midtones mixed with milky pastels, a look inspired by history and romance. Natural monochromatics pair with softened, reflective hues in retro influences, while farmstead-born, sundrenched and weathered coloring are reminders of the desert western landscape. Globetrotting spicy colors interplay with neon brights in decadent atmospheres, while a wealth of blues provides a base for clean, spare design.
