Since it’s a brand new year I thought I’d throw out a few newer items and ideas that are currently present in the interior design market. This week the topic is "Colors".
As you all know color trends come and go. For 2017 I am still seeing a lot of gray and white. The newcomers sneaking into the market are:
Blush and Peachy pinks
About ten years ago I could hardly find ANYthing blue in the design market for a client of mine that wanted it. Now it’s a sea of deep blues.
Don’t let the color trends scare you. Good design is any color YOU like when used well in your home but be aware that it’s harder to find things in your colors if they aren’t among the current trendy colors. Remember to repeat a color in different areas and at different heights in a room so that it’s seen more than one time. Sometimes certain colors put together with other colors can look dated so be careful of that. Here’s a recap of the last few decades:
Oranges, Golds, Greens = 70’s
Mauves, Country Blues, Pastels = 80’s
Deep Forest Greens, Pinks, Shiny Brass = 90’s
Reds, Greens, Browns = 00’s
Happy New Year.
