2018 Colour Trends for Your Home

Thinking of getting a jumpstart on your Singapore home decor for 2018? Paint experts Sherwin-Williams recently released its guide to the best colours for your home interior design in the coming year. The guide comprises 36 different colours, divided into three distinct palettes.


As the world’s borders slowly shrink, people are becoming global citizens that share a sense of community. According to Sherwin-Williams, the Affinity palette celebrates the “connection of people and places.” It is made up a range of blues and browns, as well as red, fuschia and white and is influenced by artisanal crafts, indigenous patterns and trans-culturalism. When repainting your living space with Affinity, start with a base of steady browns and use the vibrant blues and fuchsia as standout accent colours.


The world’s shrinking borders are due, in part, to the various innovations in technology today. The Connectivity palate is influenced by themes such as pop culture, virtual reality, productivity and environmentalism and feature pixelated oranges, blues, greens and bright yellow. It celebrates the fact that everyone moves at their own pace while remaining connected through technology. Brighten a room with bright hues of blue and muted undertones of cream or grey if you’re thinking of following this palette for your home.  


One of the most practiced principles in the world today is minimalism, which is why it’s one of Sherwin-Williams’ picks for 2018. Inspired by the Danish art of Hygge (pronounced hoo-gah) and minimalist ideals, Sincerity is awash with soft neutrals, greens and sanctuary pinks. Instead of sticking to strict shades for your home, Sincerity allows you to blend these organic shades together to create a simple and zen space.
