“2015 Home Decor Trends” Part 1-Color

Hello Everyone! Cheryl Hucks, your DESIGN INTERPRETER, is back from helping decorate my future twin grandchildren’s nursery.   We do not know whether there will two adorable girls or boys or one of each but the suspense will be over in December!  Once we know the sexes, we will add the their names above their cribs and other finishing touches. We framed and matted colorful artwork by the twin’s 10 and 12 yr old  brothers to create a beautiful art wall. I am so excited to welcome my 5th and 6th grandchildren!!

Are you ready to update your home with the  2015  Home Decor Trends”?  Rather than list all the trends in one long blog, I have decided to write a series based on several of the new trends for 2015.  Today’s blog is about “color” which is probably the number one requested trend for any new year. After the Spring High Point Furniture Market I wrote that one of seminars I attended said blue would be one of the hottest color for 2015.  There are many organizations and individuals who give an “educated guess” as to what the new color or group of  colors will be for the following year. Sometimes they all agree but sometimes not.  Pantone  releases their “Color for 2015” in December.  Furniture and accessory  manufacturers must make those “educated guesses” earlier or their products would not be in the stores  or on websites by 2015. Most major paint companies have already made their predictions for 2015.  Benjamin Moore is the only one that has a 2015 Color of the Year.  Sherwin Williams and  Behr have “color palettes”.

“Benjamin Moore has made its big announcement: The company’s 2015 Color of the Year is Guilford Green (HC-116), which creative director Ellen O’Neill calls “a neutral that’s natural.” The silvery shade of green is the centerpiece of Benjamin Moore’s color trend story for 2015, a palette of 23 shades of green, blue, blush and berry designed to mixed and matched.   We chose Guilford Green as our 2015 Color of the Year because it can be the hero or the highlight in any room, enhancing the architectural identity of a space,” O’Neill said in a press release. “Guilford Green is the perfect thread to connect nature, spaces, and interiors with color schemes that signify fresh energy and growth.”  

Back in the 90s I used a similar shade of green by Benjamin Moore for several projects.  Every color in my color scheme looked fabulous with the silvery green.  Why? Because the most predominant colors in nature –green, turquoise, blue and yellow- compliment the less occurring colors.

Eggplant colored walls make a strong statement that is tempered by the calming green bedding.
