By now you know that Pantone has named Radiant Orchid its top color of the year, but this purple hue isn't the only popular shade for spring. If you're not a huge fan of magenta and prefer a subtler palette, there's no need to fret! The spring color report is filled with a variety of options, ranging from cool blue to warm orange. Browse some of the shades below and learn how to use them in your home:
- Celosia orange: After a drab winter, use this accent color to add a pop of pizzazz to your living room. It looks wonderful when paired with other warm colors, such as deep red or brown.
- Hemlock: "Hemlock is fresh pastel green that lies somewhere between sage and mint green," writes Jen Wallace of Ecosalon. "It's a refreshing versatile green that can take center stage or can also work as a neutral. Hemlock is a color that can work well as a base color for the walls, flooring or sofa, but can also work as a pretty accent color too." The great thing about this shade is that it's completely gender-neutral and can be used in a feminine bedroom or a shared living space.
- Placid blue: This soft cool-toned shade keeps you at ease. Similar to the sky on a spring day, its light, subtle and peaceful. And don't think that this baby blue is only acceptable in a nursery! Placid blue can be a great neutral color and works well in nearly every room in your home. Try painting your bathroom walls this color for an on-trend look.
