How would the world be without colors? In as much as colorism wouldn’t exist, anything whose worth is based off of hues wouldn’t matter as well. Brand logos will all look the same, rainbows would look like a strange dust in the sky and fictional characters named after colors would suffer identity crisis. In the realm of interior design, if our walls are symmetrical to John Locke’s Tabula Rasa philosophy, our homes would appear as dull and boring as a blank slate. Interior designer Ruthie Sommers has once said that color is the least expensive thing to put in a house. If you follow the ideals of minimalism and splashing your walls with a variety of hues sounds nauseating for your liking, perhaps these interior paint color trends in 2019 will change the way you think. 

"Color is the least expensive thing to put in a house." - Ruthie Sommers​​

Is it actually possible to imagine life without colors? It is, after all, the very first thing we learn to identify as kids. Although generally taken for granted, colors play a huge part in our everyday life, not mainly for aesthetics but also for its relation to human emotions and cravings. It all started in 1930s when neurologist Kurt Goldstein found that people tend to associate red to heavier objects while green to lighter ones. As times changed, this fascinating effect of colors on the human psyche have not only intrigued psychologists but even interior designers. This is a response to the unspoken rule of white walls giving off an airy and breathable ambiance or the formality that the color grey exudes making it fit for office interiors. Interior paint colors are now often decided not only for its decorative standing but other factors such as the purpose of the room and the dwellers to which it will cater are also taken into consideration.

"Why do two colors, put one next to the other, sing?" - Pablo Picasso​


Our walls have witnessed our most glorious moments as well as the our biggest downfalls over the last years. Putting the frustrated literary writer aside in you, these walls have been subjected to unsolicited dirt and accidental coffee spills during those times of pulling an all-nighter. Be it a symbolic step towards finally making amends with your past troubled self or simply wanting to jump in the bandwagon of the trending interior paint colors this 2019, choosing which color palette to commit to when repainting your walls can be an overwhelming journey. After all, walls are major part of home interior and choosing the wrong interior paint color is a major inconvenience and even sometimes an irrevocable situation.

Living Coral

Pantone, a well-renowned global authority on color, has revealed the vibrant and refreshing Living Coral as this year’s color. Living Coral, is an animated shade of rose and a touch of golden orange; a tone which instantly sets the mood and warms the soul once perceived by the naked eyes. An attack to the onslaught of digital technology and social media as well as a wake-up call for dying condition of Australia’s Great Barrier, Living Coral is indeed not your any typical shade. This interior paint color is a saving grace for people who’s been living life under monochromatic tones and is in need of a little kick to boost their dead beat spirits this 2019.

"Color is an equalizing lens through which we experience our natural and digital realities, and this is particularly true for Living Coral. With consumers craving human interaction and social connection, the humanizing and heartening qualities displayed by the convivial Pantone Living Coral hit a responsive chord," Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute.

The “sociable and spirited” tone of Living Coral is perfect not only as an interior paint color for your living or kitchen areas but as a part of your home décor in the form of accent chairs. Tokyo Grand Renovation has exclusively designed these interior styles which naturally incorporated Living Coral as part of home interior.

A quick blast from the past is the theme of these bold and intimidating colors. Often times affiliated with the Art Deco style, a Jewel-toned interior paint color certainly brings out the regality and sophistication of any room it touches. Transform your homes and transport yourselves back into the roaring twenties by plunging deep into the hues of Jewel-tone accents such as forest green and daring pink. Complement these daring tones with antique and vintage furnishings and your place would look like something straight out of the Great Gatsby film.

If pledging to paint your unadorned walls a striking burst of color feels doesn’t appease your monochromatic aesthetic, start off with ashy or neutral colors such as Lilac, Dusty or Muted Pastels. Lavender and lilac shades are thriving this year which are basically the softer version of Pantone’s Ultra-Violet 2018 Color of the Year. Apart from their gender neutrality which makes them great as interior paint color for common areas such as the kitchen and living room, chalky muted pastels are also perfect warm backdrops for the minimalist devotees. Millennial Pink, the color epidemic that turned humanity into pink-loving creatures, shows no sign of going anywhere as a lighter and brighter version emerges this year called the Primrose Pink or Tea Rose.

Misty & Aquas

For Blue lovers, it’s the time to be alive for a myriad of blues will be the focus of many aesthetic designs this 2019. Be it charcoal, ice, gray, or powdery, the versatility of the color blue ranges from the coastal beaches to the classic family home. The grey and hazy undertone of the Misty Blue brings out a sense of serenity making it fit as bedroom interior paint color. For homeowners who want something vibrant for a livelier and adrenaline-infused 2019, the Power-inducing Aqua is a bold interior paint color that brings out the energy and the vibe of the home interior. Blues are also easily paired with other contrasting tones due to their naturally soothing and calming effect.

Mustard & Hazelnut

There is a general connotation associating the color yellow with anything cheerful and warm. A strong proof of this is the default color of emojis or punctuation replacements in the digital age. Although there is no definite reason why their creator opted to make them yellow, there is no denying that their flaxen hue makes them more appealing and pleasant to the smartphone users. This is no different for homeowners who wish to transform their homes into an artistic manifestation of the amber beauty that is the tranquil sunset. According to psychology, Yellow is the most-attention grabbing color so for those striving for a pop of color alternative to gold, deep mustard is great for introducing rich focal accents in your home interior. For minimalists who wish to use warmer and inviting interior paint colors this year, varying shades of hazelnut, beiges, and cream are perfect for keeping the home serene and clutter free.
