Color Trends

Wow!   I just received my latest issue of Elle Decor (in which my company is listed in the Designer Registry) and its all about color.    These are some trends I'm seeing and doing right now in color: PURPLE.  Purple is very "in"  right now.  From lavender to deep purple.....its in all the big markets.  Not in to purple as your focal color?  Try accents such as a pillow or even flowers.  It doesn't have to match the rest of your decor.....just serve as something updated, unexpected.  Also, BLUE.  Not just the light blue and brown scheme we were seeing 5 years ago....but deep sea blues and navy.  Again,  try it in accents or as a dark neutral.   Most importantly,  your color scheme should refect how you live and what you love.  Neutrals are still so classic and can't go wrong mixing up various patterns of textures, solids and neutrals and (if you want) accenting it with splashes of color.   My confession....I still love red!
