Spring 2014 Colors
We bet you're even more excited for spring now that you've seen the color forecast. According to Pantone, the color of the season is Radiant Orchid.
With a color so "radiant" it's easy to overdo it. We like the way Elle Decor suggested using the color—as an accent blanket on a bed—and the rest of their color selection from a decor standpoint. Just because Freesia is a fashion color for spring 2014, doesn't mean it's practical to paint a room with it. That being said, painting one accent wall, the back of a bookcase, or adding accent furniture in that color is a great way to incorporate spring trends into a room.
If you are looking to repaint a room, we recommend sticking with lighter colors, such as Placid Blue, Sand, or Paloma, especially if you're working with a smaller space. Plus, you're less likely to get sick of colors that are lighter and more neutral.
As you can see, the color palette for spring leans on the cooler side. If you're looking to warm up a room, you'll be amazed at the role light can play. Of course, that's where we come in!
Using Candle Impressions® Flameless Candles with an amber light or Ivory wax will add warmth to the color of a room. Although these colors are great, it's sometimes nice to have a cozy feeling in a room, especially if a family is living in the space.
Not sure you want to fully commit to these colors? Try adding them to your Candle Impressions® candle vignettes on side tables or coffee tables. Adding real or silk flowers in Radiant Orchid, Dazzling Blue, or Cayenne will bring some color to the room and work as a focal point, showing off your beautiful flameless candles.
