    The 2017 Behr color trends offer three paint color palettes that are very easy to incorporate into your home. Behr created three simple palettes with colors that can be mixed and matched between palettes, which makes decorating with them super easy. Behr calls this innovative color idea a "Remix." The 2017 Remix idea allows you to choose colors from any palette, to use in any decorating style.

    Each color palette of the 2017 Color Currents collection includes soothing neutral colors that support the soft pastels and pretty brights of each color palette. The blue and aqua paint colors are dusky and natural, and the bright colors are saturated and easy to use. 

    Why Paint Color is so Important for Your Home

    Behr's 2017 Color Trend palettes are meant to inspire the beauty and ease of coming home. According to Erika  Woelfel, Behr's Vice President of Color and Creative Services, "“Paint is more than just a color; it is a method of communication. Color conveys emotion and allows people the freedom to express themselves and be who they really are,” said Erika Woelfel, Vice President of Color and Creative Services at Behr. “In today’s busy world, home is a safe haven, a retreat for living in the moment or welcoming guests for a weekend visit. That’s why our 2017 colors are time-honored and heart-warming, just like any homecoming should be."

    The right blue paint color can be elusive. Unless you're painting a nursery, you'll want to steer clear of "baby blue" colors that can totally ruin a laid-back color scheme.

    Behr's Peek-a-Blue has just a touch of complexity that gives it interest. You can easily mix and match other colors from the Comfortable palette with Peek-a-Blue for a relaxing color scheme. If you'd like to try a look that is has a little more drama, try mixing Peek-a-Blue with the saturate hues of the Confident palette. If you love the blue paint color but want to tone it down, mix and match Peek-a-Blue with any hue from the Composed palette.
