In 2016, we saw lots of neutrals, from two-toned kitchen cabinets to farmhouse entryways. Pinterest recently released the Pinterest 100, featuring trending ideas to try in 2017, and we have to say, it looks like COLOR is the theme of the year! Another example of how color will shine in 2017 is Greenery, a zesty yellow-green shade just named Pantone’s Color of the Year. Without further ado, read on for some our favorite trends from the Pinterest 100…
Navy is the new black
Pinterest searches for navy are up 80%. One of our favorite navy projects is this piano done by lifestyle blogger Holly of Love The Tompkins. Holly used Napoleonic Blue Chalk Paint® and Dark Chalk Paint® Wax to refinish a piano she snagged on a local buy/sell/trade page for a mere $30. Isn’t the final result simply stunning?
New to Chalk Paint®? Nightstands are one of the simplest projects to tackle – and don’t require a lot of product! In fact, a Mini Project Pack includes all the tools you’ll need to DIY your bedside table. You can find all sorts of great nightstand inspiration on our Pinterest page!
The year of hygge
Searches for hygge are up a whopping 285% this year! In case you missed it, we shared some of Annie’s own ideas in our last blog post, This Is the Year to Live Danishly. How will you incorporate the Danish ideal of warm feelings and coziness in your life this year?
No longer limited to the kitchen and/or bathroom, marble – or the look of marble – is making its way onto walls in 2017! Ready to try this look yourself? Grab a copy of Color Recipes for Painted Furniture and More from your local Annie Sloan Stockist. Just one of the 40 inspiring step-by-step projects featured in the book is how to achieve a faux marble finish using just Chalk Paint®, Image Medium (formerly Decoupage Glue and Varnish), denatured alcohol and Clear Chalk Paint® Wax.
We’re thrilled to hear that searches for copper are up 90%! One of our favorite copper projects is this beautiful roll top bath tub that lives at Annie Sloan Headquarters in Oxford, UK! See more of this fabulous project over on Annie’s blog, Paint and Colour.
