Pantone’s done it again. The color trends they’re forecasting for 2013 are stunning!
Quite a few of those look like they’re pretty bright and bold, right? Here are some ideas on how to combine them and work them into your home for a fresh yet classic look.Emerald:
The richness of emerald can be a bit much to handle unless you like lots of color. So try bringing in a few accessories to accent a neutral pallet like in the picture above of a stylish living room.
However, emerald is a naturally occurring color. So if you are looking for a big change, why not find an accent wall that could use a good douse of brilliant emerald!Dusk Blue
What a soothing tone. This can easily be mixed with all sorts of other naturally occurring colors. Combine it with other soft, gentle colors (sage green for example) for a relaxing bedroom or bathroom. Or mix it with some bright oranges or yellows for an energetic design for a sunroom or craft room.
A very energetic color, tender shoots is an excellent accent color. Mix it with white for a bright, modern look. Or mix it with softer tones for a timeless design.
Now there is a sophisticated, fresh color. Pop a nice, bright shade to create a focal point or use a softer tone to create an airy feel.
Soften the bright, bold, and cheerful lemon and brighten that forgotten corner or throw in pops of lemon to add a splash of fun to any area.
Now this should be an easy and fun color to bring into the home. Classic, neutral, fresh, airy, and yet can be grounded depending on what you mix it with.
Here’s another classic neutral. A brighter version of navy, don’t be afraid to use this color anywhere, esp. if you’re mixing it with white!
If you’re looking to make a bold statement that can outdo all others, any red is a great option and poppy red is a slightly softer and friendlier shade. Use it as an accent color in any room.
A bright and cherry color, nectarine is great to be used either full scale like in the dining room above. Mix it with blues and teals as they are complementary colors! You can also use it in a smaller scale to bring a splash of personality to any space.
What fun ideas do you have to incorporate these colors into your home?
