Color or Neutral Decor – Which Do You Prefer?
Every year Pantone, "the world-renowned authority on color," declares a color of the year. You may have already seen this year's color, Honeysuckle, on TV, blogs and in home and fashion items.
Pink was a big color at this year's Golden Globes and since fashion often leads home decor, you can now find a pink food processor for your kitchen!
I love color. There aren't many colors I don't like and I'm always looking for new ways to combine color and infuse it into my home. I also enjoy helping clients step out of their color boxes and explore new options for their homes.
There are many people who prefer neutrals in decor and fashion. Ironically, neutrals are also a big "trend" in fashion and home decor now. Go figure. That's why I never really take a trend too seriously, it's really about what you like and can live with, but I digress.
I've posted last August about Restoration Hardware's new neutral look. As I walked through the store and then saw their catalog it was as if all color had been sucked out of their products. There is a clean, calm feeling going on there now.
So is it color (dare I say, honeysuckle?) or neutral for you and your home? Of course, skillfully combining neutrals and color is a way to embrace both in your decor, but where's the trend in that? Leave me a comment and tell me which you prefer and why!
