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.
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.
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.
