BEHR 2016 Color Trends Brochure

by Erika Woelfel

In hopes of inspiring DIYers everywhere to rejuvenate their homes with 20 brand-new, captivating hues, I am proud to announce that a brochure detailing the BEHR 2016 Color Trends collection is now available in-store at The Home Depot.

The 2016 Color Trends collection was influenced by the hypnotic draw of technology and the strain that increased screen time puts on our sense of sight. This struggle leaves us crying out for authentic stimulation, and since the home is a natural place to disengage and unwind, there’s no better environment to fill with sensory delights. To create the 2016 Color Trends collection, we sourced colors, textures and patterns from throughout history, geography, nature, fashion, design, art and pop culture. The four resulting palettes and 20 all-new hues raise the visual bar and appeal to a design-savvy society.


HIGH CONTRAST: Chromatic brights mingle with dark moody tones, glossy surfaces and layered textures in this exotic Asian-inspired space. Paintable textured wallpaper is coated in Black Pearl, while ceilings are a contrasting glossy white. A graphic black and white patterned floor anchors a palette of bright yellow, jeweled blue and tropical green. Pink serves as an adventurous accent in a back hallway. Corresponding BEHR Colors include:


Black Pearl T16-01, Pagoda T16-02, Emperor’s Silk T16-03, Galapagos T16-04, Canary Diamond T16-05


LUXE DIMENSIONS: Traditional décor gets a stylish update with bold pops of color, gold detailing and bold geometric patterns. These colors, along with translucent surfaces, will make any space feel brighter and more expansive. Sapphire blue is a terrific accent on furniture, but can also help pump up the volume when paired with an over-scaled geometric design in citron yellow on an accent wall. Corresponding BEHR Colors include:


Penthouse View T16-06, Coralette T16-07, Fifth Olive-nue T16-08, Citronné T16-09, Blue Vortex T16-10


BLURRED BOUNDARIES: Modern style softens out with organic shapes, subtle color combinations and natural materials. Smooth curves and silhouettes combine with gently washed blues and greens to create a relaxed, serene space. The ombré alcove is reminiscent of a misty, atmospheric landscape, anchored by black furniture and abstract artwork. Orange and turquoise pop accents provide a sense of optimism, as soft textiles further invite you into the space. Corresponding BEHR Colors include:


Celadon T16-11, Modern Mint T16-12, Stratus T16-13, Raw Copper T16-14, Charcoal Plum T16-15

LYRICAL LIVING: Embody feminine elegance through classic styling, plus textures, tonal hues and reflective surfaces. A warm foundation of dark gold, ivory and taupe brown keeps the room feeling elegant, but also full of energy. By adding punches of color in unexpected places, such as doorways and artwork, the space is suddenly transformed into a charming and light-hearted environment. A high-gloss finish on the ceiling, trim and cabinetry reflects light to a dazzling effect. Corresponding BEHR Colors include:


Symphony Gold T16-16, Ivory Keys T16-17, Mauve Melody T16-18, Bowstring T16-19, Opus T16-20
