Color trends for your 2015 home decor style.
Pantone's Spring 2015 Fashion Report features 17 colors that are forecasted to be predominant in this year's fashions. Since fashion trends quickly translate into interior design, we can expect to see these 17 colors making an appearance in home decor shortly after.
Of the 17 selected colors, there are 5 that I predict to have the biggest impact on interiors this year. They're fresh, but familiar; colorful, but not overwhelming; and trendy, but not transient.
These are my top 5 home decor color trend picks for 2015:
Lucite green walls in a stylish living room.
Lucite Green is my personal favorite of Pantone's 10 spring 2015 colors. It's got more oomph than mint, but it's still soft and livable. It's neutral with personality.
Lucite Green will really pop when offset by complimentary hues of red and orange, pictured above on A Beautiful Mess. Or layer it with shades of seafoam and pale grey to create a serene color palette.
I also think the arc floor lamp looks great with this mod color as a backdrop.
Add a little Custard color to your home to brighten it up.
Custard is like a little beam of sunshine! More cheerful than beige, it's still a great, "safe" color for walls and a great backdrop for living rooms and kitchens. Custard isn't an aggressive yellow - it's softer and more toned down, without being cutesy.
The living room above from Cozy Little House uses Custard on the walls beautifully. It pairs harmoniously with the beige sofa and curtains, but definitely brings more personality to the space than beige. And the gold table lamp is a luxurious pairing with Custard.
This Toasted Almond bedroom is romantic and elegant, yet still casual.
But let's not be hatin' on beige! Toasted Almond is a beautiful beige hue with a subtle pink tint. It's warm, soft, feminine, and cozy.
If you're so over the cold industrial greys that have been popular in recent years, Toasted Almond is a chic way to update your neutrals and bring a little warmth. Toasted Almond is a like a warm latte - sweet, comforting, and delicious. Paired with coral and ivory, as shown above in Better Homes and Gardens, it's both sophisticated and inviting.
If you want your home to include a little pink in 2015, Strawberry Ice is perfect for you.
Want a little more pink? Slightly chalky and very on-trend, Strawberry Ice is a soft pastel pink that's definitely not baby-ish.
Used on both the walls and accent chairs in the room above from Decor Pad, it behaves like a neutral and manages to somehow be both stylish and subtle. Paired with gold pillows and bold black and white accents, Strawberry Ice looks crisp and refreshing. Introduce warm cocoa tones for a cozier feel.
Marsala is bold, classic and rich.
Of course, we can't forget the red-brown hue Marsala, Pantone's 2015 Color of the Year. Although I didn't have high hopes for its longevity upon the announcement, I've started to appreciate it more.
While once considered dowdy and dated, brown is beginning to be perceived as more luxurious thanks to indulgences like coffee, chocolate, toffee, and leather goods. It's the concept of brown that makes Marsala an appealing color in home decor - It's warm and delicious, rich and robust.
Marsala looks updated when paired with white and light woods, as shown above in the gorgeous contemporary living room featured on SFGirlByBay.
