Black is Back
Looking for a bold contrast? Don’t be afraid. Black is our friend. While some people may shy away from overly dark tones in their home, others embrace the dramatic effect. If a full room of black walls is too much, consider strategically adding it to certain accent walls for an edgy and sophisticated look. Dark tones can make a space appear larger as they tend to push objects back.
Bright & Bold Blues
You can’t go wrong with the blue family. Blue is a universally soothing and calming color. It evokes a sense of tranquility in its softer hue and excitement with its richer variations. A must-have for any home. So many variations and so many possibilities. You can choose from lighter blues to more deep & enticing blues.
Yes, fruit colors are in! Consider adding rich depth with colors like cranberry, grape, even blueberry. Contrary to popular belief, these rich colors are extremely versatile and, in most cases, can be used as a neutral color, which means they pair well with most home color schemes & décor. You can choose from bright berries like hot reds or go for a richer, more subdued tone like burgundy.
Want to feel inspired and cheerful? Then yellows are the choice for you. Consider bright yellows to add an adventurous feel or softer yellows that add a gentle pop of color. Yellows have the amazing ability to brighten up any space. It’s an extremely versatile color that can range from traditional to spunky.
Grays are far from boring. There are a plethora of gray color options to choose from. You can go with the standard grays or choose from warmer grays that have hints of purple or pink, or cooler grays that lean more towards the blue or green family. It can offer a unique and inviting charm to a room. It is also a versatile color that pairs well with many other color schemes.
