Color Trends 2017: Gray and Neutrals-Classic!
Gray is a classic neutral and has been a “go to”favorite for neutral interiors for several years now. Gray is moving into 2017 more popular that ever !
One of my all time favorites is the combination of gray and camel with accent colors of different shades of green, from blue-greens to leaf and citrus greens. In the living room shown above that I designed a couple of years ago, I used this classic combo with gray stone on the fireplace, textured camel fabric on the sofa and brown and gray shades in the rug and leopard print (of course!) chair. The contemporary art canvas, and the plants, bring in the complimentary shades of green to spice up the neutral palette.
This cozy and comfortable room is executed with a mix of contemporary and traditional pieces with a European vibe! Remember , when working with a neutral palette , you need to use contrasting textures and shapes to add more depth to the space, as I did with the stone texture on the fireplace, the wonderful organic shapes of the three urns, the sculptural shapes of the leaves on the plants and the soft chenille texture of the sofa.
There are many other color trends coming into 2017 and I won’t go into them all now but will be blogging more about that later. Whatever the current trends, your home should be a reflection of who you, and your family ,are and you should surround yourself with colors that give you pleasure, furnishings you love and art that speaks to you ! It’s just good Feng Shui!!
