(September 16, 2014 – Calgary, Alberta) – Behr Paints announces their 2015 Colour Trends with 20 all-new exclusive paint colours and four inspirational design styles. Influenced by the pleasure and emotion colour evokes, Behr empowers its consumers to create rooms that are balanced, stylish and inviting.  By providing an extensive range of captivating colour palettes, Behr’s new trends offer creative inspiration to help consumers coordinate different colours and tones to maximize the level of energy they wish to convey in each living space. Wall colours can be dramatic or ethereal, energetic or relaxed. These wall colours can be beautifully complemented by colours in furnishings, textiles and decor objects for harmonious results.

“Colour itself is like one of the senses, enhancing our world and our state of mind,” said Erika Woelfel, Director of Colour Marketing for Behr Paints.  “Behr’s 2015 Colour Trends will help consumers pick the right colour 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 colours:

  • Deep Dreams: An invitation to a tranquil escape into a dreamy, mythical landscape, Dark Dreams features serene colours 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 decor 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 colour 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 colour and texture in furniture, window treatments and other accessories add volume and interest, and rich patterns in textiles allow accent colours to shine.  Finally, brights are used sparingly and balanced with lighter or darker colours 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 colours.  The Behr 2015 Colour Trends brochure can be found in stores and includes detailed decor themes plus design and decorating tips to help consumers visualize each space.  Additionally, an online video brings the themes to life.
