Below are some of the hottest trends in colour right now.

The tense political election [in the U.S., which has had international ripple effects] seems to be powering an interest in calmer, peaceful hues, along with brighter colours that create a sense of joy.

The grey trend just keeps growing, though it has evolved into new incarnations, including transparent grey on wood, deeper charcoal shades and a taupe-y grey.

Clean and classic whites remain hot, with marble and marble looks one of the hottest trends on display at KBIS in January.

Healthy greens ranging from grass green to sage are up and comers, not just in the U.S. but worldwide.

Warm shades of violet that offer a shadow effect are trending right now. Also popular are soft, nourishing blues, yellow, taupe and other neutrals.

Copper is all the rage in the kitchen right now, though metallic elements ranging from subtle to dramatic are also hot.

Matte black is everywhere, offering an alternative to shiny surfaces in everything from appliances to faucets.
