There is a big shift in trending home colors. For a long long while we were all crazy for crisp and cool grays, whites, and blues. Those colors still look beautiful, but 2019 is about embracing warmer tones. Kitchens and walls are popping up with creamy off-white finishes, Pantone named coral the Color of the Year, Benjamin Moore is predicting terracotta to be big, and even taupe and tan are making a comeback. Take a look at some beautiful ways we are seeing warmth infused into interiors through paint, tile, and accessories while still keeping the fresh crisp look we love. Plus, don’t miss our Warm and Creamy 2019 Paint Guide for a few recommendations to get the look in your own spaces.
Update Accessories to add Pops of Color and Warmth
If you love the fresh airy look of white tile and walls, keep them! They are timeless. But embrace the trend by grounding the space with a warm rug in coral, oranges, browns, or terracotta. These warm earthy tones will add a whole new vibe to your space.

Textiles can define a space. If you want a bright white space to feel cozier, layer in creamy or colorful drapes, blankets, and pillows. The blend of whites, off whites, and bold color creates they modern organic layered look that we love.

Get the Look with Tile
Terracotta is trending both as a color and a material. Bring the trend into your space with a tile floor that exudes character. It looks beautiful paired with crisp whites, creamy off-whites and rustic natural woods.
In the kitchen of our Cotton Point Estates Project, we went with crisp marble and bright white cabinets, but softened the look with warm creamy tile. It’s a layering that adds depth and sophistication.
Embrace the look with Paint or Wallpaper

Bold colorful walls match the fun personality of Amber and her daughter. This color combination is a nod to peach and mint color combo of the 1980’s and 1990’s but made modern with more saturation, an earthier vibe, and boho styling.
Off-white cabinetry looks so pretty paired with crisp marble and warm brass. A great option for lovers of an all-white kitchen but don’t want to risk it feeling stark.
This home progress shot from Christine Andrew gives a sneek peek of a Ginger Pink accent wall. It’s such a pretty pink and the orange undertones make it a 2019 update of the soft blush pinks of a few years ago.
Keep your bright warm colors feeling modern by pairing them with masculine lines, midcentury lighting and earthy wood tones. Would you dare to make a ceiling statement in coral?
Taupe wall coverings add traditional sophistication but still feel fresh paired with crisp white woodwork and vintage textiles.
