Design & Color Trends
Last summer while traveling in Europe, dusty mid-tones and pale colors saturated the showrooms. You may have seen our Facebook post with the images I took. Then in late summer, Sherwin-Williams presented Color Trends 2014 featuring Exclusive Plum SW 6263. With Exclusive Plum painted walls and accented plum table cloths, layering the color of the year throughout the room was simply exquisite.
Plum has always been a favorite of mine and especially this grayed tone which provides a neutral backdrop to most colors found in nature. There is a subtlety and richness without being overbearing. Plums work just as well with brown, green and fuchsia as with cream and gold. I found this color story quite timely, as we had just planned our clients living room using cool grey walls, warm wood floors, plum, lilac, silver and gold iridescent fireplace tile surround with a beige sofa and brass accents. Follow us on Facebook to see the photos later this year. In the meantime…check out these available pieces below.
