Should We Really Care About the Colors of the Year?
It happens like clockwork, doesn’t it? Right when you think the year is just getting started, a bunch of paint and color companies unveil their Color of the Year, the one hue they think will reign supreme the following year. Of course these shades aren’t a simple as “yellow” or “teal.” They tend to have very descriptive, nuanced names like “sunflower yellow” or “Bermuda sea aqua.

7 Beautiful Wintry Color Palettes We Can’t Get Enough Of
I love color and really think any shades can work year-round in your home if you’re a big enough fan of them. And sure, colors are seasonal—white feels like summer, pastels read as springy, and darker shades are always going to be more autumnal or appropriate for winter. But the magic is really in the mix. Most shades can go either way, depending on what you pair them with.

Exclusive: Krylon’s 2019 Color of the Year Is a Bright, Nostalgic Treat
I unabashedly love the Color of the Year hype. I follow every announcement, write about quite a few of them here at AT, and without fail, consider buying about 100 things in each chosen hue. So, no matter how many brands come out with their own announcements, I am here for it every. single. time. Luckily for me, these announcements usually kick off in June and continue throughout December, so I have plenty of time to bask in the COTY glow.

Could This Bedroom Trend Actually Help You Get a Better Night of Sleep?
The one place I’ve been seeing a lot of color lately is in bedrooms, and things are getting dark. Navy and midnight blues, charcoal grays, deep teals, and even black, which is the trickiest to pull off if you don’t get a lot of natural light in your space. But it’s doable. The word on the street is that this trend might actually be beneficial for sleep—either it helps you drift off easily and/or stay asleep longer.

7 Bright Bedroom Ideas to Steal From IKEA
These days, IKEA is coming up with tons of their own hacks and ways to creatively use their products. To be fair, they’ve kind of always done this in their catalogs.

New Color Suggestions for Salmon Hot Mess House?

13 Bright & Airy Rooms With One (Unexpected!) Thing in Common
Color can be a funny thing. While many people, including myself, feel comfortable and confident donning black head to toe (LBD, anyone?) the idea of using black in interiors is one met with extreme caution. The moody hue is restricted to furnishings and accents, but why? For fear that the room will be depressing? Too dark? We rounded up 13 (because we’re not afraid of a little superstition) happy, chic and cheery rooms that all just happen to be cloaked in black.

GIF Magic: See How Color Changes a Super Small Space
The coziness of a small space — or the closed-in, cramped feeling of one — isn’t always due to how few square feet it is. What you fill a small room with matters, for sure. But another vital element is the color you coat the room in. Conventional wisdom has always advised to use lighter colors to make walls recede (and a room feel larger) and to avoid darker hues (which might make the walls feel like they’re closing in), but that’s just not always the case.

Walk into any recently renovated home today and chances are you’ll see a lot of greige—a neutral color that’s the perfect combination of gray and beige. There’s no denying it’s the paint color du jour. It’s funny how, oftentimes, you can instantly pinpoint how modern (or not) a room is just by looking at the color of the walls.
