Colorful home décor is back in a big way — and here to stay. Color experts say people are increasingly at ease with bold colors and are showing their creativity with intensified hues.
Homeowners have come to appreciate the newfound infusion of vibrant hues into all aspects of everyday life. According to PPG Pittsburgh Paints color expert Dee Schlotter, the influence of new technologies and a society propelled by ideals at an ever-evolving pace are driving color-packed palettes and providing a new platform for self-expression.
“Homeowners are articulating their creativity like never before,” Schlotter said. “Fresh, bold color has permeated our daily lives, becoming an increasingly dramatic character in home décor and overall design.
“Homeowners who were once leery of color are now embracing it with open arms and a brand-new level of sophistication.”
With the abundance of bold colors emerging in home décor, the method for integrating color and lifestyle will vary from person to person.
Some people retreat to the basics for simple yet adaptable, thoughtful use of home design elements. Others might prefer to express themselves through loud, unexpected design as fashionable, futuristic technology takes center stage.
