Color Trends

Color Trends...They’re out! And…well, many of them are dark and bold. Hmmm. I’ve heard that white interiors is out. But, when I look around Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook and blogs…white remains and I believe, is a classic that will never go out of favor.

I love how the gray enhances the colors in this painting

Now I do so love color! When we moved to our home it was like I took a box of crayons, not literally, and decided on a color for each room. We had a red dining room. I think everyone should go red at least once. Our living room was gold – now it’s a greige. My son’s room was a lovely dark blue and the girl’s room was lavender and creamy yellow. We actually called the rooms by their color…the blue room, the green room etc…

But now…I am leaning toward a more serene palette. I want a calm, cozy atmosphere around me. So, it will be no surprise that out of all of the colors that are ‘trending’ I love the ones that are softer and calming.

Behr’s ‘In the Moment’

We’re still crushing on Blush.

Finding the perfect pink blush paint color

As I’m out shopping I still see blush everywhere…in fact, I purchased a couple pillows and pillow covers in blush at IKEA. I had such an awesome time at IKEA this week, I found an amazing deal I just can’t wait to share!

I saw this marvelous shade of blush in dishes, in linens, in lampshades…everywhere…I think I’ll crush on blush for a very long, long time!

sage is another color that is trending…and timeless

How Can You Incorporate Your Favorite Color Trend?

If you like one of the bold colors but you don’t want to go all out and paint a room that color, you can:

  • paint a piece of furniture
  • add accent pillows
  • paint books
  • paint a lampshade
  • find pottery in that shade – or paint it!
  • find accessories in that color
  • paint an accent wall
  • find linens in that color

There are many ways you can become trendy without overwhelming yourself. 

I may find a few things to accent my home here and there…some of these colors are very beautiful and would look lovey as seasonal decor.

But, overall, I’m stepping further and further toward neutral colors…more soft blues and grays in my future. How about YOU?
