I’ve been published or featured in a handful of shelter magazines, and it never gets less exciting to see my name or my work in print.
The Spring 2015 edition of Everyday Magazine just hit the newsstands and features an article I wrote about this spring’s color trends.
And because you guys read my blog, I’m going to give you the highlights of my spring color predictions. We could all use dose of happy right now after a rough winter, and that’s what 2015 holds for us in regards to color.
The forecast includes colors dripping with optimism and hope. Candy colors and jewel tones paired with just enough sparkle to be energizing and warm metallics to keep them grounded. You’ll see happier, cleaner colors paired with white, black, and gray. And plenty of black in both bathrooms and kitchens – notice how there’s lots of white to keep it from looking crisp, not dreary.
Greens will be as popular as ever, with trending ones including mint, jade, and emerald. And while pink- and peach-beiges hopefully begin to fade into our memories, blush pink and true peach will appear in purer renditions. And coral is going to be everywhere, I tell you!
Like I blogged in this article a few months back, the new “neutral” for a sofa is your favorite COLOR.
For upholstered chairs, window treatments, and throw pillows, look for traditional patterns in contemporary colorways. Florals, Asian motifs, and deconstructed geometric patterns will be seen in fabrics and rugs this year.
To warm up the fresher, cleaner colors, trending metals in 2015 include bold golds, champagne or winter gold, polished nickel, and copper. Wood will continue to be weathered, grayed, and bleached. Classic marble and light-colored quartz are the top choices for stone this year. Painted kitchen cabinets continue to be the top choice in new home builds, especially in whites and light gray tones.
