Color Trends in Home Decor
People are spending more and more time at home. They are traveling less, eating out less and in general regarding their home as their personal oasis away from a hectic world. The Color Marketing Group, which foresees color trends for manufacturers and designers in home decor, says that colors for the next few years will be soft, but complex colors. These color trends reflect the way that people think and feel.
A complex color may be one that bridges the lines we typically have with colors. You might use a warm rose that has enough brown in it that it could also be called copper. Or an intricate green (green is still a very strong color for the next few years) that is muted and has strong shades of gray in it. Many colors that you will see in fabrics and wallcoverings will be hard to describe using one color. Instead of just a bronze, you may need to say a bronze gold to really describe the shade. Instead of red, it may be more of a red coral in your home decor.
Typically, the more muted a color is, the more sophisticated it is considered. Clear vivid colors will be used less in home decor and replaced with muted neutrals. A neutral does not necessarily mean brown, black, white or beige. Any color can be a neutral if it is mixed with enough of its complimentary color to tone down the vividness and clarity of the shade.
Pale celedon green will be one of the most popular greens, and rich brown will take the top place that taupe has enjoyed for so many years. We will be seeing more orange, however it will have exotic undertones of terra-cotta. Rich bronze, plums and soothing shades of blue will all be used to make homes feel more secure and comfortable in these troubled times. Warm "mouse" gray will be more popular than cool "steel" gray. Home decor will welcome people to stay put.
Dark rich wood, such as mahogany and cherry, will become more popular than lighter shades of maple and oak. The darker wood gives more warmth and provides the security that people are looking for in their home decor.
Color trends are interesting and, definitely affect what colors we can find in fabrics and wallcoverings in stores. You would be hard pressed right now to find many fabrics in mauve and teal which were both very popular about 10 years ago. They are much colder than the warm colors we are looking for in our home decor currently.
However, I feel strongly that we should each decide what colors we love and build our home around those. About 22 years ago, I found the most beautiful Persian rug that I have ever seen. I managed to purchase it, which at the time was a very large purchase for me. I obviously made a wonderful and wise investment, because I still love that rug and for 22 years the color scheme in my living room has been the colors in the rug - deep burgundy, all shades of green, golds and touches of blue. My point is that over the last 22 years, my color scheme has had years when it has not been considered "trendy" according to current home decor trends . That has never bothered me, and never will, because I love that rug and the colors in it. What I may do to update the room, is to occasionally change upholstery on the sofa and chairs, replace throw pillows and accents with different shades and tints of the colors, but that color scheme reflects me and the way I feel about those colors. All you have to do is decide what your colors are and build your home decor around those.
