Spring colour trends.
As we head into the spring months and leave winter solidly behind us, you may feel that it’s time to dust off your décor and refresh your space. What’s the fastest way to do that? You can easily breathe new life into a room by adding some bursts of colour.
What’s trending for spring 2015?
Pantone describes the hot colours for spring with an “En Plein Air” theme. Breezy, cool, and softer colours are on trend. Think pastels and nature-inspired neutrals. Blues, greens, and soft earth tones can be found in their pallet. Benjamin Moore’s 2015 Colour of the Year, Guilford Green, fits nicely with the natural pastel look.
How can I use these colours in my home?
If you’re looking for a big change or to make a statement, the easiest way to do that is to paint. Choose a soft pastel in a cool blue for the living room or a natural Marsala to spice up the dinning room. Stop in at your local paint store and ask a professional for the best paint type for your space. Bathroom and kitchen paint will be different than the paint you will use in a living room or bedroom.
If you aren’t looking for a drastic change, infuse your rooms with trendy colours in other ways. Use accessories—throws and pillows are a great way to add a punch of colour to the living room. Table settings or a show-stopping work of art can bring a pop of colour to the dining room. Window coverings are also a fantastic way to make a dramatic change without breaking the bank. Beautiful panels in a trending colour can instantly bring your room into spring and, since they are easy to change, don’t come with a big commitment.
Whether you’re looking to completely refresh a room with paint or revive your décor, you can make a statement this spring by adding fresh colour.
