2014 Spring Color TrendsBy
It’s officially spring, no matter what the weather decides to do. In honor of the season, we posted this picture last week on Facebook, showing the current color trends. The colors chosen for spring 2014 range from neutrals, pastels, and bold colors. So how can you use these in your home design?
Neutrals are wonderful to use as wall colors because they really become timeless. By choosing a color like Sand with Paloma trim, the warm walls will work with many color combinations. Here you see it paired with fabrics featuring grays and deep blues (close to Dazzling Blue), but Sand could also work well with Violet Tulip, Radiant Orchid or Cayenne.
Some interesting choices in the pastels can actually be treated as neutrals also. Hemlock or Placid Blue are found in nature, so they both work seamlessly as backdrops for many color palettes. For example, here is Placid Blue as the wall color in this bedroom, with pops of the more vibrant colors of the season. Freesia, Celosia Orange, and Cayenne would be lovely and energetic in contrast to this calming shade.
Of course, here at Mary Sherwood Lake Living, we love pops of color! These cheerful hues of spring are very inspiring for us. Every year we select a color to feature on the accent wall in our front sun room. This year we chose a deep, rich blue, close to Dazzling Blue. Whether you have bright artwork and accessories or more light and neutral pieces, this deep tone creates dramatic contract and interest.
