We’re more than halfway through 2016, which means one thing: It’s already time to discuss which home decor trends will define next year. Today Design Build Ideas will show you 2017 colors. Everyone will talk about them next year!
On the color front, sophisticated hues are poised to take center stage, according to Behr who, just released their predictions for colors to keep an eye on in 2017. The paint company has divided its selection into three palettes — Confident, Composed, and Comfortable — and if they are any indication, we’ll be drawing decor inspiration from our personalities in the year ahead.
Take a look and get inspired!

This Hamptons home proves that feeling blue doesn’t have to be a bad thing. Intended to recall the colors of the ocean, the beachy shade used here highlights the home’s high ceilings. Similar to shown: Endless Sea by Sherwin-Williams
