Every year, certain hues stand out as top favorites among homeowners and designers. This year is no different.
As the first quarter comes to a close, let’s take a closer look at the 2015 color palette chosen by Better Homes and Gardens. The editorial team at the popular magazine pulled these five colors together over the first few months of the year. They looked at paint, fashion, and other emergent decorating trends. From there, they whittled down the pool of popular colors.
At first glance it’s clear: This year is the year of bright, festive colors! From bold greens to soothing peach tones, there are many ways you can add colorful flair to your home’s décor.
Here are a few ways that you can incorporate each of these hot paint colors for 2015.
Feeling a little bit adventurous? Bring the fresh colors of the rainforest to your home with Rainforest Green. This color can be used in any piece of furniture, your accent pieces, or your artwork. Although it might look a little too overwhelming on the wall, don’t be afraid to use it in larger pieces, such as the sofa, to freshen up your room.
This is perhaps the most subdued color of the 2015 color palette. It’s also the most dainty and sweet. Because it’s not overwhelming, it is the perfect color to paint your walls and incorporate into a light, airy room. Pair it with white accents and rustic pieces to keep the space feeling naturally beautiful. Or, pair it with a brighter color to make your rooms pop.
Coral is the sister color to blush as it adds a deeper pink hue to your room. Using this shade with any of the other 2015 colors will add vitality to your rooms. Find drapery that incorporates the coral color or use it in your wall hangings. No matter where you add coral, one thing is certain – this is certain to become one of your new favorite hue in your decorating scheme!
Gray sounds so bland at first glance, but paired with any of the other 2015 colors, it’s dramatic and bold. Paint your walls a warm gray to add a velvety texture to your room. This smooth color goes with just about any other accent hue you could think of. Incorporate everything from grey flooring to grey ceilings and gray walls in between.
The brightness of the berry hue is overwhelming if it’s overused. On the other hand, this color makes the perfect accent color for just about any space in your home. Use it in throw pillows to liven up a drab living room. Use it in your curtains to spice up your bedroom. With small touches of this bright color, you can add life and vibrancy to your rooms.
