A long awaited trend for fun flourishing colors is finally replacing the strict white rooms that have dominated our social feeds for the past several years. And I, for one, am thrilled to see this more nurturing trend towards personal expression, casual comfort, and soothing colors that can help us feel better.
The gorgeous green wall of the kitchen picture above has touches of gray, white, and yellow. It's a welcome change from white without changing that clean spacious look we all love in this room. Variations of this friendly green are hugely popular for cabinets and look amazing with touches of black, natural wood tones, and mixed metals. It's versatile, fresh, and so easy to live with where there's plenty of natural light or other good lighting sources.
Here are a few more color trends on our radar and how best to incorporate them into your home.
Every version of this clay color is taking over our interiors, from pale peach to burnt orange. We're seeing it in tiles & countertops (you know terrazzo is back, right?) bedding, painted walls, and of course planters and dishes.
Because we relate this warm color to flower pots, it works best in casual rooms where imperfect is perfect. Go for an eclectic look with found objects, vintage finds, and natural materials. And consider it for rooms where relaxing, visiting, and sharing are the main activities.
This pale blue isn't your 80's pastel. Today's light blue is softer, quieter, with a touch of gray that gives it an expansive and versatile appeal. We're seeing cloudy blues like this on all kinds of painted surfaces from walls to cabinets to ceilings in nearly every room of the house.
It can definitely go on all of your walls and pairs well with every style from bright geometric accents to minimalist motifs and rustic wood tones.
Every era has it's neutral, and I'm personally excited to see the cold dark grays of yesterday warming to lighter, more natural elemental colors of stone, putty, and wood.
This is the perfect color avenue the before unseen spaces, like laundry rooms and pantries, that are hitting the social waves these days. And even if your laundry is in the garage, you can carve out a clean neutral space for just that area to make you feel more organized and your chores, well, less chore-y. You know what I mean.
