    Neutral palates continue to dominate in the home.

    Even though painted cabinets are popular, most are still being painted white, Petrie said, whether it’s antique white or arctic white. Sandy tones and gray tones are also popular, sometimes to the dismay of designers.

    Instead, bold color continues to pop up in small details, such as in a back splash, throw pillows, or lighting.

    “There is also a trend towards subtle glamour – neutral palettes with dazzling details,” Frederick said.
