Spring/Summer 2011 Color Direction
Signs of spring are everywhere and as exciting as that is, we once again contemplate the inevitable spring cleanup, anticipating the moment when something will compel us to action.
The new colourful palette for spring and summer 2011 provides the perfect motivation for decorating enthusiasts to tackle winter dust bunnies and inject new life, fun and flavour into their home.
Color direction this spring is all about introducing bold new visuals; vibrant orange, blue, green, purple and pinks are popping up in everything from fashion to home decor. The question becomes, how do you decorate with such bold and brilliant color? The good news is this palette naturally lends itself to accessory items such as pillows, vases, area rugs and small accent chairs. Even the most colour wary can easily include small amounts of the current trend into their existing decor without straying too far from their own personal style. Pairing small, balanced amounts of bold color with neutrals like camels, taupe and warm grey provides a foolproof way to effortlessly infuse this season's hottest look into your existing space.
