Published on 2005-02-15. Author : SpecialChem

Spring House, PA -- Chocolate brown, bright blue, and melon will be gaining in popularity during 2005, according to the Rohm and Haas Paint Quality Institute (PQI).

"Incorporating any of these colors or palettes to highlight a feature wall or enhance interesting moldings and trim will keep your home and individual living spaces fresh and up to date," Debbie Zimmer, PQI's decorative painting and color expert, advises. "No matter what color is used, always choose a top quality paint for a long lasting and durable finish."

More on paint trends:

Caribbean Brights

Color rich paints with a tropical flair will increase in use. Vibrant colors such as ocean blue, mango, twilight purple, and sunny yellow can be used in bedrooms, sunrooms, kitchens, and any area where warmth is required.

This palette can also be used in backyard or garden settings on wooden chairs, trellises, and other garden focal points.

The New Whites

Soft whites are perfect for living rooms, bedrooms, and bathrooms. Use white in a high sheen finish to add additional light reflectance and ambiance.

Deeptone Hues

Continuing in 2005, rich reds, chocolate and sable browns, deep greens and blues can be used sparingly on one wall surface or in combination above or below a chair rail and to visually lower a high ceiling, often seen in new home construction.

Shine On

Brushed metallic surfaces are replacing those shiny brass finishes used in the past. Soft pewter, mellow copper, and brushed nickel are the perfect complement to today's kitchen appliances and bath accessories.
