Colour Trend

It's official, the newest trendy paint color is Down Pipe (farrow & ball). It is the new go-to color for designer rooms, has been used in at least two museums for gallery space, and I like it. I know the official color of the year (according to Pantone) is Mimosa but who wants a room painted that color.

Maybe an accent piece. A chair. A lamp. A dresser. In fact it would be a great accent piece in a room painted with down pipe.

All these fancy colors though just make it harder for me to pick one and paint my rooms.

I would agree that "down pipe" seems to be the color of the year. It would look good with a nice mustard kind of yellow too, mimosa looks a little bright on my screen.

You're right, that color is everywhere! I think the walls are the best places to be trendy- they're the cheapest things to change around.
