Get ready for Spring 2016 with our two favorite hues from Pantone’s colors of the year: Peach Echo and Lilac Gray. The complementary hues are the perfect pairing. Peach Echo’s bright coral will make your space more playful, while Lilac Gray is an updated take on the classic neutral.
Go Gray for Expensive Pieces
The problem with Pantone’s colors of the year is that they change every few months. If you’re making a big investment in a new couch or loveseat, your best bet is to go with the more neutral shade. That way, even when you’re ready to update your accent colors, these pieces will easily carry over. We love the look of Target’s gray tufted wingback headboard and this Weathered Gray Drop-Leaf Dining Table from World Market, as both have purple undertones. Look for classic pieces in this fun hue, or break out your DIY skills for a custom upholstery or paint job.
Find Funky Accent Pieces
The easiest way to incorporate a bright hue — such as Pantone’s color of the year Peach Echo — into your home is to make it an accent. Funky furniture pieces such as this La-Z-Boy Loop Houndstooth Ottoman or this Simmons Upholstery Side Chair will quickly become the focal point of your space. You can also swap out your tired old area rugs for this Hand-woven Dean Moroccan Trellis Geometric Flatweave Wool Rug in Coral or update your bedding to this luxurious cotton sateen set from Wamsutta Baratta Stitch.
