Three New Year's Resolutions To Modernize Your Home Decor
(NAPSI)—Each New Year, we create a list of resolutions for home updates in hopes of starting the new year with a fresh look. Whether it is to declutter and organize or finally make over the living room, here are three tips to help you achieve your New Year's resolutions and modernize the interior of your home.
<strong style="mso-bidi-font-weight:normal">• Take inspiration from new color trends.</strong> Every year, the color trends are announced and can provide inspiration for updating your own home's style. Pratt & Lambert's Color of the Year, Faded Rose, is a dusky orange that hints to a terracotta hue. This surprisingly versatile color will add a warm, glowing pop of color to any room.
<strong style="mso-bidi-font-weight:normal">• Try an updated color-block room design.</strong> Can't decide on one paint color for your redesign? Try a more subtle, tone-on-tone palette look, which is a contemporary take on the bolder color-block room trends seen before, bringing a modern feel to the space without being too overwhelming. Try a sophisticated color duo like Pratt & Lambert Bouquet Orchid and Lavender Haze; both light, barely there, dusty lavender tones.
<strong style="mso-bidi-font-weight:normal">• Look to experts to help design your space.</strong> Deciding on paint colors can sometimes feel a bit overwhelming, especially when choosing multiple colors to create a flow to your home. To help choose the right colors, paint experts often create color palettes of different shades to guide the creation of beautiful and timeless color combinations. Pratt & Lambert's 2016 color trend palettes are designed to make distinctive statements and be a reflection of your unique personality. This year, the four palettes are:
<strong style="mso-bidi-font-weight:normal">1. Heirloom:</strong> Denim blue, sienna red, khaki green and woody tones come together, giving rooms a timeless authenticity.
<strong style="mso-bidi-font-weight:normal">2. Urban Jungle:</strong> Earthy greens and tribal tones bring sophistication and deep richness for a modern style.
<strong style="mso-bidi-font-weight:normal">3. Odyssey:</strong> Taking cues from nature, this palette offers organic, bold colors in deep blues, pops of yellow-green and understated pastels.
<strong style="mso-bidi-font-weight:normal">4. Catalyst:</strong> Vivid red, blanched pastels and tinted metallics provide an opulent and grand palette for a classic design.
The colors you use in your home can be a sign not only of your personal taste and current styles, but of your whole approach to life and the world around you.
