gold

This is Golden – So long silver, gold is making it’s comeback. And with the ultra-sophisticated color gray too! Stunning to say the least. You see it in fashion and as wedding color inspirations all over magazines and Pinterest. We are also seeing it in design and décor inspiration.

 

From mid century modern to traditional and contemporary. Check out some of my favorite applications of this classic and trend proof combination.

I also like to see the variations on the combination with gray-purples and yellows. The complimentary colors are finding their way into homes all over the world, in your closet and in your living room.

In part 1 of our 2012 Color Guild Color Forecast posted on January 16th, we shared the Color Guild thoughts on colors from the reds, neutrals, and purples that have moved into the limelight for 2012.  All of the colors in the palette are influenced by nature, comfort, calm and harmony.  These themes, as mentioned, are not new but are showing in fresh new ways and in unexpected places!

In part 2 of the Color Guild’s 2012 Color Forecast we examine the blues, greens and yellows.

Color Is... 477 Ocean Cruise

Blues are soft and dusty, 477 Ocean Cruise is a perfect example of this hue. They are as comforting as an ocean breeze and serene as a calm day making them perfect for bathrooms and spas. Here they are paired with gray and beige marble tiles.

Color Is... 751 Green Glass & 932 Sun Splashed

Nothing is closer to nature than green and for the most part greens are warmed with yellow like 751 Green Glass. Or they can be soft sages or bright limes that coordinate with deep olive and bronze hues. Here green is shown with a tropical orange, 932 Sun Splashed.

Gold paired with Brown is still high on the list of best selling colors.

Yellow is a cheery hue, toned down to gold they are the core of many patterns, especially present in area rugs. Here gold is paired with brown, certainly not new, but it still high on the list of best sellers.
