My 2015 Color Trends in Everyday Home Magazine

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.

blue is the new black


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.

Yay! I like optimism and hope! 🙂 Also, I’m feeling pretty good about choosing blue denim for our living room sofa a couple of years ago. I knew I loved it, and I’m especially happy when the colors I love are “in”… makes it easier to find affordable accessories that actually go with my stuff. 😉 Congrats on the article!

I just love your blog, and pray I can come to your May session…! I do think it is fun to see the new trends, but I really believe in general, people should go with what they love. Actually, I have had a green sofa for years, and I love it – neutral, and my favorite color. I think that when the industry changes up the ‘metal’ color and even to some extent, the ‘paint’ colors (which is much less expensive, tho), MOST folks don’t have the money to swap out faucets and even light fixtures from year to year!… Read more »


I’m going to see if I can get a hold of a copy of Everyday Home. I don’t normally read it, but I’ll make the sacrifice for you. 😉

I have a peach room that would look wonderful with some indigo or navy blue accents. That’s the one room in my house that I have never tired of the color. It’s warm but not too warm, and it’s cheerful without being perky, if that makes sense.


Yay! Congratulations on your article! You are a superstar. I agree with the coral, have seen it everywhere. And the sofas are superb in colors. Love them! So happy for you my friend!


Congratulations on your article in the magazine, Kristie! That is so awesome.


BIG congrats on being chosen to have an article published!!!

I read your article as soon as I received it in the mail. Loved it. So glad I found you when I did and right when I was remodeling. It gives me confidence to forge ahead. Thank you for the help.
