THESE ARE THE COLORS EVERYONE WILL BE TALKING ABOUT IN 2017

It's now 2017, which means one thing: It's time to discuss which home decor trends will define the year.

On the color front, sophisticated hues are poised to take center stage, according to Behr, which has predictions for colors to keep an eye on in 2017. The paint company has divided its selections into three palettes — Confident, Composed, and Comfortable — and if they are any indication, we'll be drawing decor inspiration from our personalities in the year ahead.

Creative, social types will be drawn to the Confident palette, defined by dusky blues, spicy reds, and lime greens, designed to captivate your attention. Then there's the Composed palette. Its earthy greens and taupes will be a go-to for traditionalists looking to create a contemporary space. And it's all about pale pastels in the Comfortable range, characterized by light pinks, blues, and yellows that make the smallest of spaces pop. Its muted shades are ideal for introverts who want to make their first foray into accent colors.

We've already seen some of these shades make waves this year, so if you need some help imagining how they might play out in your own space, look no further than 9 rooms below. It's easy to see why we'll be obsessed with them well into 2017.

CONFIDENT: DUSKY BLUECourtesy of Donna Dotan

This Hamptons home proves that feeling blue doesn't have to be a bad thing. Intended to recall the colors of the ocean, the beachy shade used here highlights the home's high ceilings.

Orange accents pack a punch in a saturated green space. It's the perfect color combo for when you want to up the drama.

Yes, painting your floor lemon yellow is a risk – but don't you feel happier just looking at this room?

The best way to kick traditional style up a notch? Paint your space a rich color like this dark gray. In this case, the texture of the wall softens the solemn shade.

Looking to take your first big risk with color? Traditionally summery shades – like this aqua – feels sophisticated when grounded with dark wood floors and brass accents.

Looks like Rose Quartz isn't going anywhere. The ultra feminine shade accentuates a space's natural light.
