The colour palettes that paint companies have revealed for 2014 prove what amazing hues can be found in nature. The seashore, evidently, provides endless inspiration, but what’s interesting is how differently each company has interpreted the colours. The ocean ranges from mint green to a pale, delicate blue. And everything from grains of sand to mud and driftwood have been stirred into an amazing array of pinks, whites, yellows and blues. Even the air has been deciphered as gentle pastel shades.
Here’s a look at the hottest paint colour trends for 2014.
The Seaside Harmony look from Behr encapsulates the vision of a seashore, from the fresh turquoise hues of the water and the multicoloured grains of a sandy beach to the sun-bleached tones of driftwood.
Where to use this colour
“If you want to set the stage in your own personal space, encompassing this palette in a room with lots of windows set over the water might just make you think you were on vacation year ‘round,” says Nancy Bollefer, Behr’s Canadian marketing manager.
