Something other than White...

I don't know what the weather is like where you are, but in my neck of the woods I have only seen snow for the past 3 weeks and I am DONE with white!  So here are some fun facts about color trends you will see in the coming year to get you focused on something other than white.

Orange (nothing too jack-o-lantern-esque)- sophisticated deep or muted hue can really give some va, va, va, voom to your room! 

Purple- deep shades (ie- eggplant or plum) are hitting the scene. These shades are very regal and can make any space look luxe.

Yellow- sunny and energizing to brighten your day!  A word of caution: be careful not to select a shade that is too overstimulating.

Green- something relaxing and serene but not too muted.  One of my personal faves is Sherwin Williams Lemon Verbena. 

All of these colors are much more vibrant than the earth tones that have reigned in popularity for the last couple years.  The nice thing about rolling in the bold colors is that they pair well with the earth tones, so you can easily add in some brightly colored pillows or other accessories that will compliment your existing decor.

So here's hoping that the snow will melt soon and give way to the beautiful springtime we all love.  In the meantime, we can busy ourselves by infiltrating our space with this year's hottest colors!
