This year's Room for Color contest, sponsored by Chip It!™by Sherwin-Williams, is notable for the boundless array of different palettes. So much variety! We love seeing readers' personal styles shine through their use of colors in so many creative ways. And though each entry is unique, some trends are becoming apparent. Here are some trends we've spotted—let us know what we missed in the comments!

Super-Saturated Colors: We're seeing so many rich colors. People are not afraid of some serious saturation! Some of the most successful examples balance those deep colors with calm whites, but we're also noticing a lot of saturated colors paired with other strong colors.


Light Walls with Colorful Accents: Renters, have courage! There are so many wonderful examples of rooms with white walls that still use color in fabulous ways. A lot of light-walled entries add color and texture through accessories like curtains and pillows; others use painted furniture for their color fixes.
