Selecting colors for the interior of your home after it is built is key for tying together a desired theme. Whether you prefer a bold or subdued color palette, selecting paint is both a difficult and important choice in the process of making your home personal. For those of you who are building a new home or are just interested in spicing up your house, this blog entry is dedicated to sharing some of the most popular colors of 2012 interior decorating.
Blue: This color traditionally represents the sky, ocean, sleep, and twilight. Blue embodies inspiration, sincerity, and spirituality. Adding this color to your home can help create a calm and relaxing environment. (Specifically Montpelier, which has been described as “timeless”, and Amethyst Shadow.)
Green: This color has come to represent nature, fertility, and life. Green can symbolize self-respect and well being while creating a restful environment. This idea of life and growth lends itself to the assumption that this color can bring a sense of balance and order to your life. (Earth tones such as Masada, Farm Fresh, Dunmore Cream, and Fresh Olive are popular choices in 2012.)
Violet: This color conveys integrity and deep sincerity. Violet can promote deep concentration, leading to introspection. Adding this color to your home can send the message that you are responsible, intuitive, and truthful to your guests.
When selecting your colors keep in mind the furniture or wall hangings you plan to place in a room. The right selection of paint can be the finishing touch.
