Yin Yang Baby...get back to basics with your contrast colors

Posted by Renee Michel on

Lights dim, crowd hushes, curtain rises…the cast… a multifaceted array of terrific tones that, though they didn’t make first string for 2017, are bringing down the house with their natural nuance and scintillating style.
Are you a lilac lover…maybe a white worshiper or a grey groupie? No matter what you’re cherished color, today’s you’re day! We don’t want you to feel left out :( Read on to get the skinny on how you’ll be using that treasured tone in 2017!

Opulent Orange…
Imagine you’re visiting the grand canyon at sunset…come on, close your eyes and picture it. What do you see? Imagine opulent orange tones, infused with reds and browns…expertly superimposed on a background of earthy mounds and mountains. Do you see it…then you know how this sanguine starlet will grace the stage this spring. Now’s when you’ll want to bring on the bricks and turn up the terra-cottas. These tones will spice up your space and leave you feeling warm and welcome. Not sure how to incorporate this icon? Here’s a few hints…

 

Beautifully Blanched Brown…
This toasted tone will focus on a fainter façade. Tans, toasts, terra cottas…these tantalizing tints will be setting the trend. The perfect neutral shade, it adds nature and nurture wherever it nests. Need a nature guide? Follow me…

 

 

Personalized Purple…

2016 broke gender color borders, and 2017 is proving to be just as open-minded. Gone are the days of gender-specific gloss, this spring, let purple permeate your palace people! This tone is not only all the rage, it’s royal reputation will re-invigorate your room and your receptivity!



 

Whismical White…
Contemplating the upcoming core contrast color? Frosted fabrics, alabaster accents, snowy sidekicks…white weaves its whimsy wisely. Whether you accent your abode, embellish your ensemble or contrast your current color scheme, this ivory icon will invigorate your intellect, and balance the brilliance of this spring’s boisterous bevy.



 

Black boundaries? Bah!
This charcoal chroma counters it’s chalky counterpart as the up-coming contrast color. Divulge your dark decorating dexterity by displaying this dusky diva. Secondary to its sassier sisters, this piceous pigmentation pairs the romantic with the rebellious, the subtle with the strong. Outline your oasis with pops of this perpetual pigment, and transform a lifeless lair into a crowd-pleasing crib! Rock on reno Romeos…rock on!



 

Gaseous, Grey…
Grey…Greige…Heather…however do you guess what this clouded color is does next? 2017 ushers in a murky mask…an inked interpretation of a conventional classic. If black is too bold, and white is too washed out, consider working with this deserving, dual-duty décor dignitary. Grey allows you to grace your gallery with the best of both worlds…no need to avoid your apprehension when you can combine these distinguished demoiselles and create a hushed haven of heathered happiness. Portray it’s pitchy personality, and your deft decorating doctrine.



Memorable Metallics…
Metallics are making a mark again this spring. 2016 carried complimentary coppers…but consider more conventional colors to carve the course this spring. Gold gildings, silver spangles, these traditional tones will be adorning everything from armchairs to accents to apparel. Use these scintillating suggestions on toss cushions, tables or trimmings and add some swank to your space.





And the curtains slowly drop…lights intensify…end of act 2. You can get your snacks now. How was the show? Like I said, even if these hues weren’t the heros of 2017…you can bet they brought still down the house! No cause for chagrin, your favorite is still in :) Don’t forget, if you’re still in a color conundrum, come in and clear your mind…we’ve got you covered…or colored…or is it colored your covers, or covered your colors…either way…we’ll navigate the narrative with you!
