Trending Now | DV Color Essentials I’m a Local 0863

Trending Now is a great looking yellow with a fabulous name: I’m a Local. This yellow has life and warmth; it’s bold but not glaring. It’s really a range of yellows: mustard, goldenrod, or Dijon that brightens and relaxes a room without feeling chaotic. This pleasant color goes well with the cool and warm grays that are still so popular.

Patinas and distressed finishes influence home color and design

For me, springtime brings to mind grass turning green, yellow daffodils, tulips blooming and the fragrance of lilacs.  The return of warm weather also means the return of color to our world.  After a long winter, we crave color and look for ways to incorporate it into our living spaces.

Shades of Gray

There are color trends that come and go, colors that were once hip that are “in” again, and then there are certain neutrals that seem popular year after year.  They have long-term staying power.  Gray is one of those colors—it goes with so many complementary shades, can be cool or warm, acts as the perfect background for bright pops of color or can stand alone.

This bedroom uses gray to set the tone for a soothing, relaxing retreat.
