Southwest Interior Paint Color Trends
The Southwest is full of beautiful, warm tones that have inspired many for decades. If you are looking to these new trends and wanting to make some changes in your own Albuquerque, Rio Rancho, or Santa Fe home, consider these few tips on how to set the right mood for a stunningly southwestern home!
When aiming to achieve a Southwestern-style look for the interior of your home, choose from a warm palette of colors for your walls to create a cool, charming ambiance, and add in slightly brighter tones throughout your furniture to accent and personalize it!
Think of locations such as White Sands, Jemez, Tent Rocks or our own Sandia Mountains to draw inspiration from!
Mix and match similar tones with their complementary colors to create a seamless transition from room to room. The colors that inspire Southwest design come from our very own desert, such as:
- Sky blue
- Adobe red
Using neutral and natural paint tones will help in the flexibility of furniture choices and with accent decoration pieces.
Be sure to take into consideration any other natural elements that currently exist throughout your home before deciding on a paint color—such as floor tiles that are terracotta, natural wood furniture, or a stone fireplace. Your choice of paint should accent these pieces.
Consider also adding texture to your walls to mimic the appearance of adobe or stucco. Or keep them smooth and incorporate texture in other ways with rugs, furniture, pottery, or more! We have a full time drywall finisher on staff with us who can add texture to your walls for you, or repair them if needed.
