Home Tip Tuesday: 2016 Home Color Trends

Image
If you're old enough to remember the popularity of burnt orange and lime green in the 70s or teal and pink in the 80s you understand the concept of a color trend. And if you don't remember those wild combinations, maybe the spicy hues of traditional Mediterranean décor from early in this millennium will ring a bell. Color trends influence more than the literal color of our interiors, they can also influence the style of décor and even style of architecture that defines an era. The 2016 home color trends lean towards fresh, neutral colors that won't become dated before the paint dries. But don't worry you lovers of bold color, 2016 hasn't forgotten about you.
