Color Trends 2014 Part 6 – Home Decor

The subtle toned and pastel shades evoke an  ‘intimate’ atmosphere that provides a cozy environment. Inside colors like white gardenia and rose, fawn and cream, the lavender and pale gray offer a delicate and relaxing palette no matter which room they are used in.

Intimacy

Intimacy[/one_half] [one_half_last] Intimacy implies a close relationship and rapport, and the colors of this palette offer that in their subtle tints and tones. The hues, when placed in home decor, offer an environment that is inviting and soft; a blend of warm, cool and neutral tones. Colors like gardenia white, rose cloud, fawn and café crème all blend together, while pale lavenders and opal gray create balance.

But as I said before – with any trend, think before you jump in. Color trends can be great, but how does the color make you feel? Just because it’s a “hot” color, doesn’t mean it’s the right one for you. Understand the psychology of the colors you are choosing, and whether they are the right colors for your room.
