Horizontal stripes and new colors take front stage. Horizontal stripes in graduating colors can make a bold statement. Add a light ditsressing and pearlesant wash to it and you have a fabulous look that turns heads, no matter what room its in.

New colors are delicious and in shades of  lime, lavender, mocha and cinnamon. These new colors can be used:

  • with Venetian plasters for a slick slightly textured look
  • with metallic suede for a rich warm feel
  • in a mixed texture/ colorwash for a brilliant way to liven up a large wall surface

Don’t let color scare you, there are many ways to infuse the life and excitement that color can bring without overwhelming the space.  Add a richly textured accent wall or paint the ceiling a color. Use color washes to infuse the room with richer color while maintaining a sense of light. Paint a piece of furniture or add a colorful floorcloth  to build on the fresh color theme.
