Color Trends



via Pinterest

I think I am a little scared of this spring's color trends! Especially after I just watched the Today Show and they were giving their color fashion trends for spring. I know I am getting older but the only place you'll see any of the neon colors they forecasted on me, are maybe my toes! (A very small accessory may not be too bad) I think I'll stay away from decorating my home with them as well. But Pantone has also pulled a line of many other colors, bright neon colors are among them for this years picks, but the winner is Tangerine as the color of the year.

Changing your wardrobe from season to season is a lot easier then changing your home decor. If you are one who likes to keep up with the new color trends, it might be much easier if you treat these trends in your home as accessories, just like you do for your wardrobe. (love the Burberry bag with tangerine and how cute are these earrings!)

 Accessorizing your home with the lastest colors can be a lot of fun and definitely easier on your wallet. Get a new fun pillow in the latest new trendy color that works with your exisiting decor, vases or art work could bring in that pop without having to change everything you have. Who couldn't use a tangerine mixer!


The picture below shows a good example of using the hottest color right now with a neutral gray sofa, you could change out those pillows with just about any color and still have it look great.

 If you want to go a little more adventurous, paint is a great inexpensive way to change your room with the latest colors, a bit more time consuming, but cheaper then changing out all of your upholstered pieces of furniture just to stay trendy and hip! Here's an easy fix,  just paint the front door.

Or go a little bolder, paint the walls

Furniture can also make an impact

Tangerine looks great with blue shades too because they are complimentary colors. I wrote a previous posting on The color orange, where you can see how versatile the color really is. But what ever the next trendy color is that comes along at least there are ways that you can incorporate them without changing everything you already have.
