Top Colors of 2016

Another holiday season has passed, and we have said goodbye to 2015 and hello to 2016! One of the most fun and exciting times for us at the beginning of each year is the revealing of the New Year’s home color trends. Pantone recently revealed their top colors of 2016, and we couldn’t be more excited to talk color with you.

This year there are a variety of colors trending, some being classics and others are something new. One of our many passions at The Lighting Gallery is staying up to date with interior and exterior home trends, and passing them on to you. Below we have revealed this year’s top color trends for your home!

  1. Classic White
    White is a timeless shade that never grows old. It’s crisp, clean, and allows you to add your pop of color in different décor ways, if you’re looking for simple walls. Though white hasn’t been the most popular color the last few years, it has really made a comeback this year. If you’re looking for a chic, trendy, yet traditional look, white will be your go-to color this year.
  2. Pretty Pastels
    With white being a big color this year, so are its cousin pastel colors. Think yellows, pinks, purples, and blues. Many people are choosing to brighten up their rooms by switching to light shades like these. We’d suggest a pastel shade if you’re looking for the clean and crisp look, but also desire a little extra color in your room.
  3. Bold Statements
    2016 is spicing things up with bold statement colors! Think deep blues, yellows, reds, and purples. We love the looks of a adding a bold and bright pop of color to any room. If you’re brave and willing to step outside the box, a bold color is right for you! Our advice? Be cautious of going overboard with bold colors. Remember – you’re going for a beautiful statement, not an overwhelming space.

  4. Warm Neutrals
    You can never go wrong with a warm neutral, and that will stay the same in 2016. Think dark, medium, and light greys and browns. With the brown schemes have been big in the past, grey shades are now also becoming very popular. Our favorite thing about these colors is that they never go out of style. They are warm, welcoming, and modern colors that will be appropriate for years to come.


There are endless ways to incorporate these 2016 color trends in your home, from paint, to home décor accessories, and lighting designs. We recommend doing a little research on photos of different 2016 color schemes so that you can collect some great ideas that you think would fit well in your home.
