Benjamin Moore's Color of the Year feels like a total 180 from last year's pick, Simply White. But plum is more adaptable than you think. "Its ability to create a layered, intimate room is almost magical," designer Elena Frampton says. "You can bring out its luxe side with gold tones, be bold and partner it with orange or soften it with creams."

"People today have a growing sense of adventure, and it's making its way into even the coziest corners of our homes," says Sue Wadden, director of color marketing at Sherwin-Williams. "Oceanside is the color of wanderlust right in our own homes." Get this paint color: Sherwin-Williams' Oceanside SW 6496

 

 

If sunlight is hard to come by, fake it via paint color. "Not every room can have a dozen windows. When there's only one, like in the dining room of this Spanish-style home, you have to emphasize it," says designer Christine Markatos Lowe.  Get this paint color: Farrow & Ball Stone White 11

 

Designer Scot Meacham Wood says "serious shades" are going to rule the design world this year. "Strongly hued colors, like exotic chinoiserie red, give homes a sense of impactful design," he says. As proven by the book shelves in this living room by designer Marshall Watson. Get this paint color: Benjamin Moore Million Dollar Red 2003-10

 

Designer Francesco Bilotto predicts moodier tones will make a serious mark in living rooms and bedroom spaces this year, as showcased on the wallpaper of this Moroccan-inspired lounge by designer Justina Blakeney. Get this paint color: Glidden Nassau Night 90GG 12/168

 

Another color that proves bold is back is this dramatic purple, according to Bilotto. "You'll see this tone showcased everywhere from kitchen cabinets to foyers," he says. Designer Pat Healing opted to use this shade to create a statement on this New York dining room door. Get this paint color: Benjamin Moore Autumn Purple 2073-20

Dubbed "millennial pink" by The Cut, the peach-salmon hybrid refuses to go away. "Not too juvenile or too twee or too sweet, it acts like a neutral," says designer Lisa Tharp.  Get this paint color: Fine Paints of Europe Windsor Pink

Pantone named "Autumn Maple" as one of its top shades for (surprise, surprise) autumn, but the fall hue looks fresh year-round. A similar burnt orange spices up this kitchen by Melanie Coddington.  Get this paint color: Benjamin Moore Salsa Dancing

 

Deep emerald isn't going anywhere. "This bluegrass green is on the floors of Monticello — and at my 1688 country home," says designer Jeffrey Bilhuber. "It's a color steeped in history, but also of the moment. To me, that's perfection." Get this paint color: Benjamin Moore Courtyard Green 546

 

The presidential election may be over, but the Oval Room can inspire change in more ways than one. "I call this blue my miracle worker — nothing bests it if you need fast drama," says designer Lauren McGrath. No wonder this shade looks right at home in our kitchen of the year.  Get this paint color: Farrow & Ball Oval Room Blue 85

Pantone's color of the year brings to mind the outdoors, but it works inside too. For a high-impact entry, designer Christina Murphy Pisa turned to a similar shade. "This acidic apple green, which is sophisticated but not too serious, nails it," she says. Get this paint color: Fine Paints of Europe HO1950

 

Black built-ins are popping up everywhere lately, like in this study by Carmel Greer. "This gray-black reminds me of shadows — for me, that's a good thing," she says. "With the gold overhead light and leather chair, it's tailored and masculine, not cave-like." Get this paint color: Clark+Kensington Black Chiffon N-C15

 

If your style is more traditional, olive green might be the right move. "Often the initial reaction is that it's dark, maybe even a little dingy," says Gideon Mendelson. "But don't underestimate it! It has a sophistication that's ideal for millwork and trim, which I took advantage of in a library."  Get this paint color: Farrow & Ball Olive 13

 

Sunny rooms are trending again. "Yellows, from pale butters to dark mustard, are cropping up everywhere," says Stephanie Piece, MasterBrand Cabinets' director of design and trends. Carry it from the walls to the furniture, like this suburban kitchen by Lindsey Coral Harper.  Get this paint color: Benjamin Moore Inner Glow 348

Sherwin-Williams predicts grays will warm up after a half-decade of cool tones: Poised Taupe took their title of 2017 Color of the Year. "It's like gray and brown had a baby," Sue Wadden, Sherwin-Williams' director of color marketing, told the Today show.  Get this paint color: Sherwin-Williams Poised Taupe SW 6039
