If you are a Denver Broncos fan and need a fresh coat of paint on the interior of your home, you are in luck. One of the most popular paint colors for the summer of 2016 are vibrant periwinkles and orange colors that are similar to the shade of orange worn by our reigning Super Bowl Champions.

The inside of your home or apartment says a lot about your personality and can add vibrancy and life to your living room or bedroom.

Some of the colors of the 80s and 90s are coming back into style, which has to do with today’s fashion. Furniture designers incorporate the latest fashion designs into new and upcoming furniture trends, which are reflected in a home’s color choices based on what is selling the best.

Trends always change but in 2016, “fun greens” have become increasingly popular. Today’s greens are more “sagy” for exteriors and brighter for interiors.
There are several reasons to consider repainting the inside of your home. If there are scratches, scuffs and stains, it is a no-brainer that a paint job is needed. Another factor that comes into play is if the paint is fading. Lastly, if there are watermarks from moisture or mildew damage, a paint job can help.

Another reason for wanting a paint job is to stay up to date with the latest trends. Or if you moved into a new home or apartment, making the color scheme to your liking.

WeConnect Fashion made a great list of the most popular colors for the summer of 2016 that we completely agree with!

Popular summer colors of 2016:

  • CORAL
  • BURGUNDY
  • INDIGO
  • DARK TEAL
  • PERSIMMON
  • MOONSTONE BLUE
  • BLUE HYDRANGEA
  • LEMON CHIFFON
  • PERIWINKLE (similar to the Broncos color!)

While old, drab walls can kill the welcoming atmosphere of your home – they can be easily and affordably remedied with a fresh coat of paint.

Just remember, if you live in an apartment, make sure the wall is painted back to the original color and that you get permission from your landlord to add a new coat of paint onto the walls.
