Every year, design enthusiasts try to predict what shades all the major paint brands will announce as their Color of the Year, but Valspar really goes all out. Instead of choosing just one, the brand selects 12 colors to celebrate. Seriously, it's like the zodiac of color announcements (Virgo would be Blushing Bride, and Pisces is Wishing Well for sure—just saying).
This year, Valspar chose a lovely mix of bright, almost-neon shades and soft-but-interesting neutrals to usher in 2019, so you're sure to find one you love. Check them out—and find out where you can buy them—below.
You can find this light-but-bright violet shade at Lowe's stores as Twilight Mist, and at Ace Hardware and independent retailers as Carousel Purple.
Go bold and daring with this bright lime green, available at Lowe's as Lime Mousse, at Ace Hardware as Bright Cactus, and at independent retailers as Celery Heart. (All fitting names!)
If this color makes you say "Oh my gourd!" you can pick it up at Lowe's, Ace Hardware, or at independent retailers as Spring Squash, Pure Joy, or Just Ducky, respectively.
An apt name for this purple-blue-gray, you can get Seattle Haze at Lowe's stores—at Ace Hardware and independent retailers, you'll be able to find it as Twinkle, Twinkle.
Valspar describes this color as an "optimistic green" with "a heart of linen." You can pick up Martinique Dawn at your local Lowe's store, or ask for Asian Silk at Ace Hardware or other independent retailers.
Orange Slice is a perfect name for this intense, citrusy shade. Find it at Lowe's, or pick up Fiery Sky at Ace Hardware. It's also available at independent retailers as Heirloom Tomato.
This stunning, bright blue "reflects honesty and clarity, without shading or apology," according to Valspar. You'll see it as Wishing Well at Lowe's, but as Amazing Sky at Ace Hardware and Blue to the Bone at independent retailers.
Head to your local Lowe's to pick up this beautiful, dark, moody purple that looks good in every room. It's known as Dried Lilacs at Ace Hardware and at other shops that carry the brand.
For a softer shade, try Angelic Blue, which Valspar describes as "weightless" and having "healing qualities." You can find it at Lowe's, or pick it up at Ace Hardware and other retailers as Soothing Blue—soothing indeed.
Valspar calls Blushing Bride a "rosy neutral" which is perfect—it's like mi millennial pink with beige. It's available at Lowe's, but at Ace Hardware and other shops nationwide, you'll find this shade as Cathedral Morning.
Green and blue may not traditionally be considered neutral colors, but somehow Green Water makes them just that. This one's also known as Zinc Blue at non-Lowe's stores.
And last but not least, Homey Cream—AKA Glow Home at Ace Hardware and other retailers—is a warm, creamy shade with a hint of yellow. Check it out at Lowe's stores nationwide.
