Trend Color of the Year 2012

It seems that this color was selected back in the late 90’s. Oranges and Yellows were to hit mainstream. It didn’t really take off as predicted. Problem is that merchandisers take predicted colors and infuse them in clothing, accessories, jewelry…you really have no choice but to see the color of the year in the stores…

If you follow trends your home may look like this…

Gladly there are other choices.

We can help you select paint colors for your home.  Most often a main color is selected for the largest portion of area, like entry, halls, main living area, kitchen and dining area. It is fun to select a darker or contrasting color for accent walls, beams and posts, and sometimes fireplaces. Have fun with color in spare bedrooms, and the hall bath if you like.

If you like the above color here would be one way to use it successfully. Yes,  I did tone it down a bit, hhmm, alot,  and it plays very nice against the rich grayed brown

For those who love the livable naturals take a look at how gray is used to add interest to a room that is basically beige and brown.
