Bright Bold Colours: 2012 Trend

Blue has made a huge entrance into the home furnishings world this year.



Not the pale, washed out blues of yesteryear but instead bold, graphic and clean tints of blue. Think of teal, turquoise and royal blue.


Tangerine is a huge colour for the season. Use it sparingly for a huge impact or embrace it if it is your favourite colour.
Lime green is another of the hits of the season. You will see it mixed with blues or contrasting the tangerine orange.

Not only are bright colours a big component of the design trend for 2012 but so are patterns. Tribal patterns, chevrons, bold graphic prints are big in upholstery. Use them together or with your other favourite patterns and prints in pillows, drapes or a big bold accent chair.
