Color Trends for 2013? Believe it or not we’re about 3 weeks away from the New Year. As a premier builder of Richmond VA homes, we like to stay on top of the latest movements in décor and home fashion.
Here’s a look at 4 fresh new color palettes from a leader in home painting, Benjamin Moore. The names alone are inspiring enough to bring new ideas for decorating in your brand new Main Street home.
- Coastal – Forgo the oversized seashells and peach colored accessories. Imagine shades like tranquility and simply white. The soft blue-greens along with the creamy yellow and white of this palette are reminiscent of the beach at sunset and make an excellent choice for coffee in your morning room or concentrating in your home office.
- Artisan – Much like the Tuscan landscape you imagine when hearing the word, the Artisan palette is warm and inviting. Perfect for creating the illusion of a far away land inside your Richmond VA home. Deep hues like satchel and silhouette pair with the lighter pittsfield buff and monterey white to make the ideal canvas for displaying your treasured family heirlooms or photos in your living room.
- New Traditional – For a fresh take on traditional décor lighten up your dark, wood furniture pieces with a coat of seapearl or baja dunes. Then transform the bedrooms in your home to reflect a neutral, masculine, or feminine character by applying the colors from this palette. Dusty mauve offers a romantic touch to an otherwise neutral room while evening dove is a classic navy shade that appears subtle next to creamy accents.
- Urbanite – A perfect color trend to compliment the stainless steel appliances that are so popular in Richmond VA homes. These shades create a chic, clean kitchen without feeling stark and cold. Because cabinets occupy so much of your wall space try painting the ceiling with sparrow or Marblehead gold to add color. Tone it down with soft neutrals like camouflage or create a contrast with the bold polo blue.
