The weather isn’t the only thing warming up this month: Our color team meeting got a little heated when we struggled to decide between our top two contenders for May. Votes were split between Lili’s orange-red poppy and Camille’s soothing whisper gray. After all, don’t they look amazing together?

We had a little fun yesterday, but now we’re ready to reveal the color we’re really crushing on for April. This month’s color team meeting was a face-off of delicious proportions. The deliberations came down to two fruity hues: Abbi’s crisp, fresh apple green versus Marianne’s bright raspberry. We were torn: Both colors freshen up your home for spring, and they even look beautiful together:

April Fool’s! See which color we really picked to feature in April.

When we’re searching for the perfect hue to name as HGTV’s Color of the Month, inspiration can come from the most unlikely of places: think a garden plot, a bird’s nest or even a candy cane. The light bulb moment for this month’s color choice? It all started when a mysterious box arrived at HGTV headquarters.

Carrot cake is one of my favorite spring desserts — it’s comforting, homey and just a little bit spicy. (Also, there is cream cheese frosting.)  This Moroccan-inspired bathroom’s palette is like the design equivalent of the beloved cake: It not only matches the warm, neutral tones, but the worldly accent pieces, modern geometric tile and striped curtains add just enough spice to this mostly-neutral space.

Did you hear the news? Carrot orange is our chosen hue for March’s Color of the Month. It’s bold, vibrant and definitely represents the upcoming season to a T. I mean, it was practically a unanimous vote when meeting newcomer Kelly Smith-Trimble pitched the color with a picture of fresh-out-of-the-garden carrots and other spring-inspired favorites. We couldn’t resist!

So, I’m sure you saw our beautiful Color of the Month for February, robin’s egg blue. I couldn’t help but be in awe of Liz‘s wintergreen pitch (it was actually runner-up!), though. I mean, whoa. It’s brighter than mint green but greener than turquoise. You can even say it resembles the Pantone hue Cockatoo. Many of us loved it paired with pink, gold and neutrals and felt it would be a perfect representation of February. But, you know how our Color of the Month meetings can get. Maybe we’ll put wintergreen back into the running for spring. What do you think?

Happy New Year! All of us at HGTV are home ringing in the new year in our pajamas, but we didn’t forget to vote on our first Color of the Month of 2013 before the offices closed. And what color had us ready to embrace the coming year? It’s warm, it’s shiny, it glows…it’s GOLD!

Gold Color of the Month January

Color Team member Jill pitched Gold in December, but it didn’t make the cut for 2012. But then Kayla put her spin on it and suddenly we all had the Midas Touch. After the festivities of New Years Eve, the richness of gold just feels right.

So what say you? Are you feeling the warm glow of gold to kick off the new year? How would you decorate with this always-in-style metallic?
