What are your favorite palettes from Room For Color 2012?
Room For Color entries are like snowflakes — every one is unique and beautiful in its own way. Still, there are a few common threads running through the most favorited entries. Here are a couple of the trends we've spotted:
Deep Saturation: We're seeing so many gorgeous, rich hues this year — people are definitely not shying away from bold color! Colors we keep seeing include fuschia, teal, cobalt blue, navy blue, charcoal and golden yellow.
Filtered Neutrals: The counterpoint to the saturation trend is restful rooms in hazy colors. Pale grays, mossy greens and tea-stained creams work are sweet and sophisticated in an industrial loft or a cozy farmhouse.
Bold Combinations: People are playing with color, decorating rooms with a handful of colors instead of just one or two. It's inspirational to see these risks paying off again and again, showing us that there's always "room for color!"
