Color trends often first spring up in the fashion industry. Cascading into other areas of daily life, colors that show up on the runway will often make their way into the home stores next. Fashion designers look at the Pantone colors as industry standards. In the process, interior design mimics those clothing styles and colors.
When it comes to your home and the choices you make in color for your window coverings, you may be inundated with the latest fashion color trends and want to see those colors in your home. While splashing the latest turquoise craze on the runaway up on your windows may seem appealing now, it is always important to keep in mind that trends are just that. Less is always more when incorporating current decoration trends for the home.
For those fashion hungry colorists, you can enrich your home and be up to date with the color trends by making sure the trendy color items you use can easily be changed. Things like pillows, accent fabrics and wall paint can all be changed easily when the color trends change course. By keeping foundation pieces neutral such as couches and bigger pieces you have to live with and on, those trendy color items you just had to have this season won’t be out dated next season.
As the fashion world gets the color trends first, home decor tends to get the memo second. However, we can all take those trends in color to our homes, in little splashes. Afterall, no one wants to end up with the latest color trend of avocado bathtubs for 10 years to come.
