Color Trends 2015


Color is one of the many elements that go into making your house... yours.  You probably have a favorite color already, which may or may not be what you want in your living space.  For example, I really love purple, especially really deep, jewel-tone amethyst. I wouldn't paint all my walls that color - or buy a purple refrigerator, if such a thing actually exists.  But, every room in my house has a touch of purple - a throw, candles, a painting.  And it all works because the palette works with that color.

Your color palette can be really important when pulling together any home renovation.  Trends in color are actually created years before they're released - imagine the coordination it must take to get whole industries - paint, tile, accessories, cabinets - to converge on what the latest colors will be.  So what you find a lot of the time are color 'philosophies' or palettes that are offered - a bold, a neutral, a soft, a modern.  This also gives the trendsetters some wiggle room... if they're wrong on one palette another might save them.
