Color Makes a Comeback in Home Remodeling

According to style and design experts across the country, be on the lookout for bold colors!

You heard it here – color makes a comeback in home remodeling. Gone are the days of cool neutrals. Let’s take a closer look at some of the big players in this retro comeback.



To create brighter, more cheerful homes, the go-to paint color during the post-war period was often red. Today, it provides dramatic color that still feels classic, even in contemporary spaces. 

Pro tip: Veer toward deeper shades of burgundy for a luxurious feel, or stick with true red for a punchy accent.


Pastel Pink

Pastel shades of pink were splashed across all sorts of surfaces during the 1950s. You can find this color everywhere, from bathtubs to sinks to bathroom tiles and more. Powdery pink is once again popular in bathrooms, although it’s important to note that today’s version of this trend is less all-encompassing.

Pro tip: To temper pink’s sweetness, combine the paint color with modern black accents.



Vibrant colors like yellow found their way into our homes during the groovy style of the ’70s. Shades ranging from buttery yellow to rich mustard are cropping up again throughout our homes as we fast forward a few decades to the present day. 

Pro tip: A vibrant shade of lemon or citrine will amp up the intensity with a fresh twist.


Mint Green

Throughout the first half of the 20th century, mint green was a must-have color frequently appearing in kitchens and bathrooms across the country. The soft pastel was often paired with bright white and jet-black accents for sharp contrast. 

Pro tip: Pair mint green with soft whites and wood tones for a fresh, natural look and to put a modern spin on this nostalgic color.


Denim Blue

The shade of denim blue harkens back to traditional interiors as it is as familiar as a well-worn pair of jeans. Trending again today, it creates a soothing atmosphere ideal for relaxation, especially in bedrooms and bathrooms.

Pro tip:  For timeless appeal and liveable, understated color, paint walls denim blue.
