By now you have all seen the paint color predictions for 2018. Caliente Red, Blackhearth, Ultra Violet. They are all wonderful colors, but Valspar (my favorite paint brand) has picked a handful of paint colors for 2018 because they couldn’t decide on just one.
They have a color for everyone. Some are bold and some are more neutral. Here are my 6 favorite paint colors from Valspar’s color collection 2018.

RADIENT GOLDEN OCHRE
First up…Radiant Golden Ochre (because yellow is my favorite color)is a rich deep yellow that really does remind me of a marigold. The brown undertone of this color is what makes it warm and cozy and while you may not want to do a whole room in this color (it is a very bold color) a single wall or accessories is a great way to add radiant golden ochre to your home.
GROUNDED CHARCOAL BROWN
Grounded Charcoal Brown is a wonderful marriage of brown and gray. Cool and dark, it adds warmth to a space when there is sufficient light. This earthy color mixes well with lighter browns and neutrals and you can feel confident in adding in brighter oranges and yellows and teal blues to create a cheery space. Aged or polished brass metal accents also play well with this color.
COZY WARM BUFF
Next on my list of favorites is Cozy Warm Buff. As a neutral paint colors go, this is a stand out choice. It is a greige that inspires a monochromatic decor scheme, but don’t be afraid to add pops of blue or red to satisfy the color lover in your soul. Paired with white woodwork and creams and beiges it invites you to curl up and snuggle in front of the fire, but imagine it with Grounded Charcoal Brown (pictured above this one) on the trim and fireplace…now that would be outstanding!
CALMING ICY GREEN
Calming Icy Green marries blue and green with a hint of gray to make this paint color a stand out neutral. Pair it with blue or gray accessories to play up the color you want to see. Light natural woods play well with this paint color and offer a great contrast to make your space fresh and relaxing and a joy to be in.
CONTENTED MINK GRAY
I am a huge fan of gray paint colors. They make the perfect neutral. Contented Mink Gray is a bit more dramatic and commands attention as the focal point of the room. To soften the look add in beiges and creams and medium tone woods with texture for an inviting cozy space. Accessories in light purple will add a pop of color without seeming too harsh.
UPLIFTING POPPY RED
Last, but certainly not least, Uplifting Poppy Red. Like radiant golden ochre, I wouldn’t paint an entire room this color. An accent wall or accessories would give you just the right amount of this vibrant warm color. Pairing it with beige or faded navy blues would balance out the warmth of this color, while adding white accents will make it stand out and become more of a focal point.
There you have it, my 6 favorite colors for 2018 from Valspar. Wether you embrace bold color or gravitate to all things neutral, Valspar’s paint colors for 2018 has a color to fit your style. I hope this gives you ideas how to decorate with these amazing colors.
