2015 Color Combos

Friday, 27 March 2015 by

Color combinations this year are just about as stunning as they get! And now that I’m aware of them I’m seeing them in nature and fashion as well as in magazine pages and houses all over. These are three of the hottest color combinations of 2015:

Chartreuse + Lavender

This is the most muted and neutral palette of this year’s color combination trends. It evokes a refreshing springtime effect with its eye-catching contrast, while simultaneously putting you at ease. You can choose a high saturation and vibrant version of these colors or stick to a more pastel style. Either way, chartreuse and lavender look great together!

Spring is finally here! I am so excited to be able to spend time outside and, most importantly, to entertain! Outdoor dinner soirees are so much fun and really get people ready for summer. But what is an outdoor dinner without a perfect centerpiece? Flowers are always in vogue during the summertime, but get creative with fresh produce and unusual vases like teapots, soup cans and crates.

Here are 10 centerpieces for a summertime dinner soiree that really caught my eye: 

Color on Color

Mixing and matching colors can be invigorating and very fun! But equally as fun is finding unique ways to do color on color! Black on black sounds dark and ominous, but it can actually look lovely.  White on white might sound boring or untouchable, but it can really be quite inviting! And that’s not to mention matching other colors, like green on green or blue on blue. Here are some fun examples for the kitchen, bedroom and living room: 

Green is the new Neutral

Tuesday, 03 March 2015 by

Neutrals are hues that go nicely with just about every color and can be mixed and matched easily. Green is often an overlooked neutral, but if you think about it, it’s everywhere in nature! Because it’s so dominant in nature it acts as the neutral – the color that every other color has to match.

Green is the new neutral in houses now, too. From walls to floors to plants and accessories, green is becoming the next big color. Benjamin Moore announced 2015 color trends and choose Guilford Green as the color of the year. Houzz.com has a great explanation of the choice of Guilford Green being the color of the year: “Paint and stain manufacturer Benjamin Moore recently announced its color trends for 2015, including a Color of the Year for 2015: Guilford Green. The hue was chosen by a team of color experts who traveled through Europe to explore and document things of interest they discovered — from interesting textiles and artwork to, of course, paint colors. Several themes emerged, which led them to select the winning color stories and Guilford Green as the lead hue.”

That being said, let’s take a look at how great this new neutral can look in the home:
