Behr Paints announces their 2015 Color Trends with 20 all-new exclusive paint colors and four inspirational design styles. Influenced by the pleasure and emotion color evokes, Behr empowers its consumers to create rooms that are balanced, stylish and inviting.  By providing an extensive range of captivating color palettes, Behr’s new trends offer creative inspiration to help consumers coordinate different colors and tones to maximize the level of energy they wish to convey in each living space. Wall colors can be dramatic or ethereal, energetic or relaxed. These wall colors can be beautifully complemented by colors in furnishings, textiles and décor objects for harmonious results.

“Color itself is like one of the senses, enhancing our world and our state of mind,” said Erika Woelfel, Director of Color Marketing for Behr Paints.  “Behr’s 2015 Color Trends will help consumers pick the right color for their projects while providing a glimpse of how rooms appear in different tones.”

Using this inspiration, Behr Paints has identified four on-trend themes with 20 all-new paint colors:

  • Deep Dreams: An invitation to a tranquil escape into a dreamy, mythical landscape, Deep Dreams features serene colors like teal, charcoal and eggplant that offer an oasis of relaxation in a bedroom. Balance is created with white trim, gold metallic and pops of citron yellow in the décor accessories. Lush layers of patterned textiles invite fuchsia, bright green, and purple into the mix.

From the sweet charm of pastels, to the comfortable ambience of neutral tones, to the dare and majesty of deep and bright tones, Behr Paints has pulled together trends to capture the balance needed to create inviting, inspiring and dramatically transformed rooms.  First, to keep pastel rooms from feeling overly sweet, a pop of bright color and dark accents add dimension and create an airy, feminine appeal.  Touches of dusty earth tones ensure neutral rooms create a marriage of function and comfort.  For deep and hued rooms, layers of color and texture in furniture, window treatments and other accessories add volume and interest, and rich patterns in textiles allow accent colors to shine.  Finally, brights are used sparingly and balanced with lighter or darker colors to create a refined yet lively look.

 

Each original trend is showcased with a room image that embodies the theme, and includes a selection of diverse in-vogue colors.  The Behr 2015 Color Trends brochure can be found in stores and includes detailed décor themes plus design and decorating tips to help consumers visualize each space.  To further the visual experience, consumers can follow a QR code found on the back of the Trend Card brochure or watch a video online that brings the themes to life.
