2012 is all about hope and optimism and we are not shying away from bringing more color into our lives this Spring!

Sunny, bright yellows are hot in home décor, and when paired with light blues and greens, create a fresh Spring look.  Perfect for sunrooms, kitchens and bedrooms- this palette is sure to lift spirits and instill optimism.  Appropriately pulled from our Color of Hope collection, ASPIRE .05 is the yellow anchor or accent for this group.  DREAM .05 breathes cool air into the mix, while THRIVE .02 adds a tangy twist and IMAGINE .03 brings the balance.

To get this fresh, bright look, use ASPIRE .05 on the walls, IMAGINE .03 on trim & headboard, and DREAM .04 and THRIVE .02 as accents in the bedding and accessories.

For a peaceful nursery, DREAM .04 or SPROUT .01 could be used with ASPIRE .05 yellows in the bedding and THRIVE .02 greens sprinkled around.

To create a fun and lively teen room, use THRIVE .02 as the major wall color, with DREAM .04 under the chair rail, and the crisp IMAGINE .03 on the trim.

You can get the “look” with variations of these tangy hues as in this photo – the walls are a lighter version, THRIVE .01, while the sofa is close to THRIVE .03.  The DREAM .04 chair and pillows add an aqua accent that balances all the greens in the room.

Pantone’s color of the year, Tangerine Tango, is a great accent color to use with the new spring palette!
