2014 Color Splash - Interior Design Trends

Posted by Client Care on Thursday, February 27th, 2014 at 3:43pm.

Color inspiration can come from a variety of places, but if you are looking to redo or makeover your home, or any room in it, it is best to use a color palette that will continue to grow on you over time. Splashes of color can be applied sparingly to bring in new life to dull furnishings, or fully by painting a room an entirely new color.  Each year color trend forecasters use a variety of information from several different industries to determine which colors will be considered trend setting for the upcoming year.  Even though the color of the year might be too trendy for some tastes, there always seems to be some variation of more traditional colors as well that are popular each year. Whether you end up going with a bright new look or want to hold true to a more classic color palette, looking at what's hot and what's not is a great place to start when figuring out your personal interior design style.
Here is a collection of what leaders in the industry are saying will be the most fashionable colors for your home this spring 2014.
According to Elle Decor, the color for 2014 is Radiant Orchard, which they use in the picture below as a gorgeous accent in a white room. They also use this color along with Hemlock to create a whimsical bohemian chic dining room design. http://www.elledecor.com/design-decorate/color/spring-2014-color-trends-pantone#slide-1

HGTV says to forget browns and chocolates and go gray! In fact, tons of other sites are also saying that gray is the new black and colors like Charcoal and Hematite can be considered go-to options.  HGTV also says that green is growing in popularity and conveys an eco-friendly or earthy vibe. http://www.hgtv.com/decorating/color-trends-whats-new-whats-next/index.html
Sherwin Williams’ 2014 color forecast has used a variety of people, places and spaces in a very artistic and worldly way to develop four different color palettes, each of which conveys an entirely unique feel. Rich tones like Relic Bronze and Quixotic Plum from their Curiosity combination are absolutely stunning and invoke romanticism, class and stature.  http://www.sherwin-williams.com/architects-specifiers-designers/inspiration/color-forecast/2014-color-forecast/curiosity/
Note: If you are picking a color to paint a room you will have to take more into consideration than just which hue you like the best.  Things like the size of the room, how much light comes in, what the room is used for, what decor will go in the room, and what the adjacent rooms look like all will affect whether or not the color splash you chose was trash, or worth the cash!!!!
