2011 Color Trends
There are some new trends in color direction for 2011 and also a revisiting of some color trends from the past few years. Here are six color groups we should be seeing this year.
Corals will be big this year, a nice compliment to some of the blues and greens that are currently being used. Corals can be great choices to perk up a bathroom or bedroom.
Yellows will still maintain their popularity but going a bit bolder and brighter than before. Think of Southwest colors with stronger golden yellows.
Greens have been popular for quite awhile and they will be staying for 2011 but a bit more yellow based than before. To get an idea think of the outdoors, as in leaves and moss. To get an idea check out Benjamin Moore’s color AF430 Wasabi.
Remember how popular the grays were in the early 90’s? They are starting to show up as a popular neutral but now with a warmer base, more taupe hues, and grays with a subtle violet undertone.
Speaking of violet, the purples will be out in full force for 2011 and beyond. Deep royal purples and purples with red and blue undertones will be in the forefront. Purples can be dramatic, take a look at the color of the year – Benjamin Moore’s Vintage Wine. It is the perfect compliment with today’s wood finishes and leathers. We liked Vintage Wine so much that we painted the ceiling of our Puchers store in North Royalton with breathtaking results.
Along with purples some blues will be showing up more this year. Heavy earthy blues like Benjamin Moore’s Buxton Blue and aqua based blues such as Azores from the Benjamin Moore Pottery Barn Spring/Summer 2011 collection.
