Re-Energize Your Space With Trending Colors That Boost The Spirit

We recently discussed springtime styling tips to wow home buyers, and with the anticipation of warm spring and summer months building, it’s also time to say goodbye to winter decor. An easy way to keep your home seasonally up-to-date is to introduce colors that inspire energy and tranquility.

 It’s no secret that color affects both the atmosphere of a room and overall mood of those inhabiting it. When focusing on re-energizing a space, some of the best colors to incorporate are shades of purple, blue, and green.

Purple in the Dining Room

Purple is most commonly associated with:

  • Luxury
  • Creativity
  • Vitality

Pantone’s Color of the Year, Ultraviolet, is a great accent color to incorporate into a dining space, to bring forth a chic and modern feel when entertaining family and friends.

Blue in the Bedroom

Blue is most commonly associated with:

  • Relaxation
  • Meditation
  • Inner calm

The bedroom should be a space that invokes tranquility and relaxation. Bedding, curtains, or even a patterned accent wall with different shades of blue, are just a few ways to tie hues of this color into the space.

Green in the Family Room

 Green is most commonly associated with:

  • Safety
  • Harmony/Calming
  • Nature

Instilling a sense of nature and harmony, green is a great color to incorporate into the family room. Green hues can be brought in through rugs, accent furnishings, and fresh leafy plants, all organized around a neutral colored sectional with green accent pillows. Or, use a lime green couch as pictured above for a more stylish use of the color.

Natural Elements Paired with Metallics
One of our favorite trends that remains popular is plants of all shapes and sizes – succulents, trees or plants in baskets and colorful planters, fresh or synthetic garden flowers in vases and wreaths. Since metallic accents also continue to be on-trend, we love pairing the two together for an elegant touch to appeal to today’s buyers who like to feel close to nature.

Pops of Bright Accents
Pair bold pops of colorful accessories such as accent pillows, throws, artwork, glass bowls filled with fruit and fluffy bathroom towels against a neutral backdrop to give any room a boost of energy and warmth. Mix and match different textures and patterns for added depth and modern style.

Update Paint Colors
Whether you repaint an entire room or an accent wall, a fresh coat of paint works wonders to instantly brighten and open a space to make it appear larger. To spruce up your curb appeal, try a fresh coat of a trending spring color such as Benjamin Moore’s Caliente for your front door to create a welcoming first impression.

Fresh Bedding
To create a spring-like oasis in the bedroom, switch out winter bedding and replace with fluffy duvets in white, or on-trend floral patterns paired with a soft, cozy throw and accent pillows in different sizes, colors and textures.  To complete the look, add soothing nature-inspired wall art in complementary colors.
