2011 is here, and it’s time to think of ways to update your decor in the New Year. One of the easiest and most budget-friendly ways to make your home feel brand new is to decorate with color. Painting walls and bringing in colorful textiles and accessories can transform any space. While honeysuckle is the Pantone Color of the Year for 2011, hues like turquoise, lime green and chartreuse are still in.

The High Point Market Fall Fashion Report summarizes the home decor trends you can expect to see. One of the biggest — the continuous use of bold hues at home, and turquoise tops the list.

SHINE Lola Sofa

Bright pieces like this teal blue Lola Sofa from SHINE are a perfect way to introduce a pop of color and can be tempered with neutral shades like gray and cream.

Blue-green hues also look gorgeous on walls, creating a warm and cozy feel perfect for bedrooms or libraries.


To make turquoise come to life, pair it with other bold shades like yellow and orange to make a statement.

Modern History Decorated Venetian Chest

I also love bringing turquoise in through traditional pieces of furniture like this Venetian chest. The bits of bright blue take this piece from classic to contemporary.

    Have you seen these chairs?


    Perhaps a little more blue than turquoise, but what a spectacular color! I am not normally attracted to blue, but I could see having a pair of these in my home!

    I just loved the turquoise blue color specially on the Venetian Chest. Its truly classic. I never thought Blue-green hues would look so good on the walls. I plan to paint at least my room with this color this time.
