Valspar Brings Out Three Trendy Bright Colors for Spring Painting

As winter comes to a close, the bright spring weather can inspire homeowners to freshen their décor with spring paint colors from The Valspar Corporation, a leader in the paint and coatings industry.

“Valspar’s color palettes provide a great foundation as people look for a fresh start after a tough year,” said Sue Kim, color trend and forecast specialist, Valspar. “Spring is the perfect time to renew home décor, and move from the dark, dusty colors of winter to bright, nature-inspired colors.”

Based on Valspar’s 2010 color trend palettes – specifically inspired by the Watercolor Impression and Peaceful Ambiance trends – Kim, along with Ann McGuire, Valspar color consultant, designed three palettes specifically for spring that will wake the senses. These new palettes lean toward the blue spectrum, like sparkling water, and add warmth to any spring painting project.

Peaceful Optimism: Drawing from the popular look of purples/lavenders and yellows, these colors create a sense of peace and optimism.

  • Brushed Lavender (4001-3B)
  • Midsummer Twilight (4001-3C)
  • Baked Scone (3007-8B)
  • Churchill Hotel Ivory (3007-8C)
  • Lovely Bluff (3004-10C)

Wishing Well: Following the environmental shift to preserve water, this palette highlights blue as the “new green” to incorporate hope and tranquility in the home.

  • Fountain Mist (5005-9B)
  • Sea Kiss (5005-9C)
  • Fresh Pear (6007-7C)
  • Ivory Dust (7003-24)
  • Oatbran (6006-1B)

Warm Glow: The trend toward peachy colors is reflected here to create a soft, glowing ambience. Lime Ice is thrown in for a fresh twist, or for a more classic look, try Sparkling Sage.

  • Mark Twain House Peach (2006-6A)
  • French Cream (2006-6C)
  • Lime Ice (6008-7A) or Sparkling Sage (5005-3B)
  • Caribbean Walk (7003-5)
  • La Fonda Santa Fe Brown (2006-7A)

“People often need a fresh perspective after such a cold winter and incorporating a new, bright paint color into the home is an easy and affordable way to get that perspective,” said McGuire. “Any of these colors would look great in a kitchen, entry, bedroom, living room, or any space you wish to revive.”
