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.

1. Custom Built Contemporary

AndreaCourtpowderroomB&A (3)

We achieved an updated look throughout this stunning home by removing dated wallpaper in the kitchen and powder room and repainting all the walls with a neutral color palette. This home sold within one month after receiving multiple offers.

2. Classic Colonial

This home needed updating and decluttering. To get it ready for sale, we created a
more modern decor by recommending fresh, neutral paint colors for all the walls. Our team then replaced outdated carpeting, added new light fixtures, and chose contemporary accents throughout. 

3. Contemporary Colonial

To make the space feel more roomy and inviting to buyers, we freshened the rooms
with simple, neutral area rugs, added modern accessories in vibrant colors and
reworked furniture placement.
