Interior Design Color Trends for Spring 2012

While in the Nevada Furniture World Market recently, I was excited to see that on the scene for spring 2012 will probably be tropical and beach inspired colors which can be seemingly saturated through the sun. Luscious reds, oranges, yellows, aquas, and teals will probably be extremely popular. Bright and happy is an excellent approach to describe the brand new spring colors. Search for blue-greens in each and every possible shade. Think ocean colors - rich and luscious. Apple green may also be popular this spring.


Pink and orange is a popular color combination. Not normally seen together, the mixture of these two colors results in a playful feeling. One other popular color combination for spring will be gray and yellow. These two colors, like pink and orange, aren't normally used together. The mixture is very pleasing, and adds warmth for cooling gray.

Pantone's hue of the year, tangerine tango, an energetic reddish-orange, will probably be observed in fashion in addition to decor in your home. This lively hue will brighten the darkest room. Only a little this color will create energy within an otherwise subdued interior. Test the fit throw pillows, throws, lamps, accessories, and artwork.

Also search for these bright colors in garden accessories and outdoor decor. Indoor-outdoor fabrics have come quite a distance and are now available inside a multitude of patterns and colours. Always look for 100% solution-dyed acrylic for outdoor usage. These fabrics won't fade and definately will last a long time under the sun. These indoor-outdoor fabrics will also be wonderful for heavy indoor use like breakfast nook chairs and kitchen stools.


Neutrals will almost always be in style. It certainly is a good idea to keep large upholstered pieces neutral. Warm beiges, taupes, and grays all pair well with all the tropical and beach inspired hues. Develop a whole new look just by changing out art and accessories.

Many different patterns are being noticed in interior fabrics. Evident at the recent Vegas Market were graphic patterns that invoke indigenous cultures. A sign of our global economy, these patterns are getting to be very popular. Also fashionable are designs inspired by lattice work, iron gates, and Turkish architecture, in addition to syncopated patterns, abstracts, and geometrics.

I saw lots of artwork and wall decor in these luscious shades of red, orange, yellow, and blue-greens. Abstract paintings full of life, as well as beautiful florals of poppies, calla lilies, as well as other appealing flowers were prominent. Lamps in rich shades of red, orange, and teal will prove to add a pop along with functionality. Accessory pieces like clocks, decorative boxes, vases, and candleholders can also be stylish over these new colors.

So then add pizzazz for your interior by incorporating of these suggestions for adding splashes of color to your house. You will end up energized and definately will desire to take more time in your newly stylish and charming home.
