We usually think about the comfort and functionality of a piece of furniture before we buy it. But what does the color mean? How do colors play into interior design trends? We have a few answers about that to help make your next furniture purchase a bit more colorful.
-Earth tones are a huge trend in interior design right now. This might have something to do with the whole “going green” environmentalism, but it’s also a great way to decorate your home. A lot of natural or organic fabrics don’t contain any dye (and if they do, it’s from a natural process), so that lends itself to more neutral colors. Browns, beiges, and greens are very popular right now.
-Yellow and green are a great design combination. Yellow is vibrant, while green is calming and soothing. When they are combined, they make a definite statement. When you’re doing this, be careful not to overuse the yellow. Yellow is good in a kitchen, where it can stimulate and motivate (and even aid in digestion!). Using green in a bedroom creates a calm mood.
-Purple and orange are also popular colors. Right plum purples and vibrant violet purples represent a very unique design standpoint. Using various shades of orange will add a bit of brightness. Pairing purple and orange creates a great contrast.
These are just a few color themes to think about when you’re getting new furniture for your home.
