The lush richness of turquoise, browns, and deep purples is fading – literally. One of the latest trends for interior color reflects lighter shades, ones with softly hued tones. Watery blues and greens, silvery taupes, touches of lavender or coral are all part of this decorating look.
This trend is great for those that don’t want to be overwhelmed by the boldness of darker tones. These lighter, more neutral hues provide a simple backdrop for the room, allowing you to add more color in with artwork or accessories when the mood strikes. Walls are painted with shades of gray or beige. Tables can be done in pale metallic finishes that softly reflect light. Area rugs swirl the mottled pale colors in simple sweeps, providing a base to put a luxuriously soft upholstered fabric.
This trend plays up textures with shine, layering chenilles with nubby silks, painted finishes, and soft touches of pattern. The patterns end up being more tone on tone, creating a beautiful flow from room to room. Our North Carolina furniture outlets and showrooms have embraced this trend and can show you how easy it is to incorporate into your home.
While some trends come and go, this is one that does have some lasting stability. Working with pale neutral hues allows you to change accents easily when you crave more color. Find out if this is a style that works for you by visiting us at Hickory Furniture Mart.
