    2011 Color trends for your home

    Pantone has named Honeysuckle the Color of the Year for 2011. It’s a daring color. I once had a bathroom painted that color. It’s great for a small room like that. Probably a little too much for the walls of any other room in the house. But I think as an accent color it would be magnifico.
    Benjamin Moore has named “Vintage Wine” as the 2011 Color of the Year. It’s a very sophisticated color. It works with a neutral palate but a little dull for my taste. I love how they used it on the ceiling. Color on the ceiling is another trend.
    Many trend sources are showing purple as a major trend with turquoise as a close second. I love both of these as accents in a neutral room as the pop of color.
    The use of Black or white is still very much “IN”. One way to make a sophisticated update to your home….Paint all the doors a rich black. It’s very stylish.

    If you’re looking to make a change in the new year but don’t want to spend a lot then consider paint. It makes a big impact and it’s easy to change. Be bold. You will love the results.
