The Bold and the BeautifulPaint colors take a bold turn in 2012! Don’t believe us, Pantone’s 2012 color of the year is Tangerine Tango. In addition, you may want to try glorious colors like emerald, regal plum, ruby, turquoise, golden yellow tones and exotic corals.
When Opposites AttractThough these new and vibrant color tones may be too loud for some, don’t be afraid to mix them with shades from a more neutral color palette to create a whole new paint scheme. Try adding bold splashes of color with a luscious cream, comfortable brown or elegant grey.
It’s a Material WorldThis year, home decor is also getting a luxurious update. Take your home to the next level by layering silky fabrics or velvet on your sofa, accenting with vintage pieces, or go for the natural look with wood, stone or feathers.
Add Some SparkleWhen it comes to lighting, you don’t have to choose basic brushed nickel. Break the mold this year and pick something with pizzazz. In a subtly decorated room, a brightly colored lamp, sconce or chandelier can add that punch of color your room is missing.
This year is about understated luxury and being adventurous with the familiar, so don’t be afraid to bring in some new colors, textures and accent pieces. Happy decorating!
