It is amazing how fast the year 2011 is closing in and with a new year it will be time for many to add a new coat of paint to their home. So many different things affect the colors and styles that become popular each year. The biggest trend that you can expect to see in the coming year is colors that project natural surroundings. Earth, water, and sky will be the theme of many homes in 2011.
You can expect to see local paint stores sporting many of the most common earth tones. You will probably also see many water tone colors. By far the biggest trend will be to use colors of the sky.
