Interior design color trends are constantly changing, and it can be difficult to keep up. That’s why we, at Jessica Dauray Interiors, recommend modern and timeless over extremely trendy. However, that is not to say that you have to ignore trends altogether.
There are ways to infuse color trends without committing yourself to a style that will look outdated in a few short years. Paint is most certainly one of them, as are bold accessories like accent pillows, throws, and rugs. These are great ways to update your space without a full redesign.
Some of the color trends for 2015 are continuations of what we’ve seen in previous years, and others are fresh. While we’re not recommending you invest in an expensive item like a couch in one of these bolder hues, splashing these colors throughout will give your room a fresh and updated look.
This Mediterranean-inspired hue is rich and vibrant. Think of the church rooftops on the Greek island of Santorini. This color adds a dramatic pop when paired when paired with neutrals like grey, white or cream.
Bold 60s-inspired hues like olive and tangerine are back in fashion - in a big way. This is in line with a trend we’ve seen for several years toward the Mid-century modern style. You can pair a couple bold 60s colors together to add major pop to a room. The look is especially chic paired with wood furniture.
Grey has been the neutral of choice for a few years now, eclipsing tans, beiges and browns in popularity. That trend is expected to continue. Some people are even calling grey the color of the decade.
Sherwin-Williams has named its coral reef shade the official color of 2015. Coral pairs beautifully with neutrals like grey and white. Used sparingly for an accent wall or a pop of color on throw pillows or accessories, coral looks fresh and modern.
This organic shade of green is back in fashion, and it is being used in unexpected ways - even for kitchen cabinets. Keep a light touch with this shade, however. If it’s overdone, the look can be dark and drab.
We know what you’re thinking - it’s the 80s all over again. Not quite. The modern take on pastels is more Monet than Troop Beverly Hills. It is subtle, sophisticated and chic. Think pistachio, light pink and lavender. Anchor the look with plenty of neutrals for balance.
This soothing, airy shade has made a resurgence in the past few years. It is easy on the eyes, and it promotes a relaxing atmosphere. It works in just about any room of the home, but it is especially great for bedrooms.
If you’re sensing a theme, you’re correct. Ocean-inspired colors are huge for 2015. This color is cool and calming - a medium green with just a hint of mint color. Think of the color of the beaches in Ko Phi Phi, Thailand. The look is soothing but fresh.
Even people who are not big fans of yellow gravitate to custard. It’s a darker, more muted shade of yellow, yet it still manages to feel bright and sunny. This color is great for creating an unexpected pop. Use it for breezy curtains, accent pillows or a decorative throw.
