I've been very inspired by Pantone's 2011 Fall Fashion Color Report when planning my wardrobe, but felt relatively at a loss as to how I might translate to my home decorating. I love all of the colors, but how could they all fit into one space? Well, that was until I saw this living room, and I was shocked at how Pantone perfect it seemed! Just about every color from the forecast is found all in one room.
When decorating, a lot of people make the safe decision to stick with a couple of colors and use lots of neutrals. It creates calming environment, which is particularly important to a lot of homeowners. But for me, living in Northeast Ohio, where there are many more cloudy days than sunny ones, and winters that last far too long, I like a lot of color in my home.
For someone who loves vintage, selecting colors from Pantone's Forecast is even easier. This living room seems right out of a hip 1960's pad! Very fun and full of personality.
