Color impacts the mood of your home, and if you're selling, you'll want to think about how your house may make potential buyers feel. Choosing the right combination of color for your space is key. Here's what experts from Pantone, Sherwin Williams, BEHR and others predict will be the hottest colors of 2018.

Light and Dark

Contrasting light and dark adds dimension to your home. Lighter shades give a more spacious appearance. Smaller spaces should focus on light wall colors. If all your walls and floors focus on neutrals contrast that with dark accent pieces, like a dark chair, rug, or throw pillows.

Hues to Use

BEHR's color of the year, In the Moment, offers a peaceful palette. People want to withdraw when they come home and relax. Colors like this and others like Equilibrium or Off the Grid create a sense of peace and serenity.

Capitalize on Color

Making Color Pop

The trick is to be strategic. When accentuating an architectural feature or trying to tie a room together, use the 60-30-10 rule. 60 percent is the main color of the room (like walls), 30 percent is your secondary color (like your couch or bed linens), and 10 percent is your accent color (like throw pillows and artwork).
