Whether the choice is bright and bold, relaxing and neutral or any shade in between, paint choices can set the tone for any home or office.

The Hacienda Style color collection offers homeowners an option for the rich, traditional colors of Mexican design style. This palette adds 15 new colors to choose from, including signature colonial reds such as Granada, soothing Mayan blues such as Cenote and several rich ochres ranging from the vibrant Sol de Yucatán to a burnt orange named for the traditional candied fruit delicacy, Dulce de Membrillo.

Interest in Mexican design style now extends well beyond its traditional base of appeal in the southwestern U.S. Northern visitors to Mexico are looking for ways to bring some of the soulful antiquity of Mexico back home with them.

Soft, sophisticated colors are prevalent across this year's color spectrum, according to color experts. Like the healing greens, the paint palette of the coming year is dominated by “easy-to-live-with,” understated organic tones, including skin-like neutral pinks with warm coffee overtones that will replace formerly popular deep and saturated shades of red.

Within many of the color families, there are still more vibrant options, although they’re softer than in the past. More complex colors are best used in combination with subtle tones. Saturated shades like coral, grapefruit, kiwi and fuchsia work well with the more subdued green, yellow and neutral environmental colors, creating a sense of optimism, energy and adventure.

One manufacturer has taken a step back in time with its Vintage Collection. This line, inspired by the hit television show, Mad Men, includes 10 classic hues that will take you back to an era gone by. The idea was to capitalize on the popular 1950s trend watch with color names that reflect the romantic flair of a simpler time. Playful names like Kiss Goodnight red, Absolutely Beaming yellow, Someday My Prince Will Come jade green and Guilty Pleasures terra cotta orange will give consumers a wide choice to consider, and fun conversations as they make their selections.

Senior color designers for the Color Marketing Group (CMG), the premier international association of color, play key roles in identifying color trends. These experts search the world for inspiration. It could be the kingfisher blue of an Indian sari, the sleek shine of a copper bowl or an elusive shade of gray found in a stormy sea. The important element is to explore how colors are influenced by what’s happening in our world.

So whether you are just looking for a subtle change in one room, or are inspired to redo your entire home, today's paint offerings will give you a rainbow to choose from and more.
