Trends and Color in 2012
New Year's Day is a time when many people commit to starting fresh and to making positive changes in their lives. As you consider what you will change in 2012, start with your home. Our daily lives are influenced by the colors and textures surrounding us. Color affects our mood and outlook on life.
Home decor trends are constantly evolving, and one of the most obvious aspects of changing style is color.
An easy, cost-effective way to instantly modernize your home is to update your walls to a posh hue. Pantone's color of the year is Tangerine Tango, a spirited reddish orange, that provides the energy boost we need to recharge and move forward.
Blues gained popularity in 2011 and will continue to be red hot in 2012. "From sparkling sea-glass blue to colonial blue-grey, blues are suitable for all living spaces, being a naturally soothing color that is loved -- in one iteration or another -- by almost everyone," according to Debbie Zimmer, color expert at the Paint Quality Institute.
Greens, ranging from celery to fir allow homeowners to bring the comforting feelings of nature outside into the world within. Dinning rooms and kitchens are the natural places for in vogue greens, but the hue is also at home in family rooms and bedrooms.
The classic combination of black and white is a sophisticated choice to update your interior. Black and white wallpaper and fabric choices permeate the market and make this an easy look to achieve.
Watch out for bold patterns on your walls with paint to take center stage in 2012 ranging from color blocking techniques to lacy designs. Click here for Paintable Wallcoverings >>
Next year's textures and fabrics will include iridescent metallic threads woven within fabric; strong patterns and bold prints; modern floral; tailored woven fabrics like tweed; luxurious velvets and more. Prints, paisleys and fun patterns are back for a splash of brightness that you can later change easily when you are ready for something new. Expect to see terrariums, metallic decor items, nature inspired accents and repurposed elements.
So get inspired and get to work making your home the place you love!
