1. Hazelnut hues

Hazelnut paint colour is warm and calming. It is also a neutral colour that makes it easy to blend other decor and colours into the same living space.   

2. Trendy teal's

A vibrant teal is the next best colour for your home. It not only attracts the eye and works great as a feature wall, but it also works well with neutrals in addition. This bedroom looks wonderful.  

3. Softer pastels

Soft or nude pastels are simply the best for those chic, classy interior designs despite being minimalist. You’ll be happy to know that they are versatile enough to blend decor and furnishings without having to worry about clashing colours.   

4. Mustard paint colour

Mustard is great for a bit of energizing feel, but, toned further down from yellow. It makes a great colour for virtually any space whether you’re going with only a section of the wall or all out.   

Furnish mustard spaces with lighter tones to balance them nicely.   

5. Mushroom colours

Mushroom colour paint is versatile and beautiful. Unlike the 70s rusty paint colours, with mushroom, you get a fresh, modern look. It is a must if you’re looking for a type of neutral that will still give that lively vibe.   

6. Inspired by the brown woodlands

Natural woody colours and browns are ideal for any living space. Nature was the focal point for 2019’s decor, but for colour notes, you can take it up a step with wooden inspiration.   

7. Misty blues and more

Misty blues are softer shades of the colour that can blend seamlessly with other tones of blue and neutrals. You can create an understated space that isn’t too impactful or harsh in colour. This kid’s bedroom displays a misty blue as the main walls and scattered with other tones of blue and splashes of red.   

8. Energy-boosting yellow paint

Yellows are great for many things including being energizing. Some may find this colour bold and optimistic, but it sure has a way to brighten up any living space.   

9. Beautiful terracotta

Terracotta is a gorgeous colour and perfect for blending other colours. It also has a warm feel to it and makes your room feel homely and amazing.   

10. Inspired by white

Off colour white paints are the perfect hue to set any living space tone. Use it as a canvass and add pops of colour as you like. It is hard to go wrong with a neutral colour such as this.
