Inspire Consumers

Four dynamic palettes with 20 all-new hues that bring impact and dimension to spaces.

BEHR® is inspiring DIYers everywhere to rejuvenate their homes with the release of their 2016 Color Trends Collection, available now exclusively at The Home Depot®. These 20 brand-new, captivating hues feature four coordinating designer palettes that bring impact and dimension to any living space.

“We enjoy exploring the cultural worlds of art, product, fashion and architecture to forecast the coming shifts in color trends,” said Erika Woelfel, Vice President of Color Marketing at BEHR® Paints. “One of the common trends we’ve continually found is how the hypnotic draw of technology and increased screen time have driven the need for authentic stimulation. The BEHR® 2016 Color Trends are made up of unique colors, textures and patterns, lending sensory delights and allowing us a way to truly disengage and unwind.”

In addition to trending colors and coordinated palettes, the BEHR® 2016 Color Trends offer looks that increase visual interest on all surfaces—floors, walls and ceilings—in the year to come. Contrasting colors, tactile elements, sharp or soft edges and matte or glossy finishes will further stimulate the senses, while adding volume and structure to a variety of hues.


Chromatic accents mingle with moody shades, glossy surfaces and layered textures. Spaces enveloped in these hues will activate the senses with a playful interaction of color, texture and patterns. Dark colors create an illusion of depth, while brilliant pops of tropical color showcase an adventurous style. Corresponding BEHR® Colors include:


Traditional décor gets a stylish update with bold pops of color, gold detailing and bold geometric patterns. These colors, along with translucent surfaces, help 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 Citronné yellow on an accent wall. Corresponding BEHR® Colors include:


Modern style softens with organic shapes, subtle color combinations and natural materials. Smooth curves and gentle silhouettes combine with washed blue and green for a relaxed, serene space. An ombré alcove is reminiscent of a misty, atmospheric landscape and is anchored by black furniture and abstract artwork. Pop accents of orange and turquoise provide a sense of optimism. Corresponding BEHR® Colors include:


Feminine elegance is embodied through tonal hues, plush textures, and reflective surfaces. A warm foundation of dark gold, ivory and taupe brown can keep a room feeling elegant, but also full of energy. By adding punches of color in unexpected places, such as doorways and artwork, spaces can suddenly transform into a charming and lighthearted environment. A high-gloss finish on a ceiling, trim and cabinetry reflects light to a dazzling effect. Corresponding BEHR® Colors include:

DIYers can explore, preview and purchase samples of the BEHR® 2016 Color Trends exclusively at The Home Depot Color Centers.
