Leave a comment

Houzz is a great interior design forum site to visit and see pictures of work by architects & interior designers . It also features articles by professionals about various design news, themes & trends . This article is about an accent color trend observed last month at the prestigious & renowned interior design market in High Point, North Carolina . The accent colors at the top of list were in the family of saturated deep purples spanning from shades of merlot to rich raspberry . I think these accent colors have universal appeal and will add pizzazz to any interior style .

2012 Color Forecast – Is “Mauve” sneeking back in ?

Leave a comment

Mauve/Rose colored Columbine ” Fuschia Rose ” is the new name for the historic color Mauve !

2012 Color trends are swinging from the soft, serene palette of the last several years to a bold, enthusiastic palette that is refreshing & motivating ! The experts in this field explain their predictions & show examples of the colors . I was amazed to see “mauve” rising to the surface (again!) oh my, so reminiscent of the 1980’s era . But of course it has a new name, “Fuchsia Rose” . Enjoy !

This Sherwin Williams Paint article in their latest STIR magazine explores that questions . I found it interesting to read the studies about which way the color pendulum would swing when economic times are tough – bright & cheery OR drab & dreary ? Read this insightful article and learn about it .
