"Pantone named Aquamarine the color of Spring 2015."
Aquamarine Reins Supreme for Spring
According to the 2015 Fashion Color Report from Pantone, the color of the season is Aquamarine. This dusty light blue will be popular in both the fashion and decorating realms during the spring, so find ways you can make it the center point of your home. If you're not looking to repaint any walls, try adding a splash of the shade on your furniture.
If you've got a couch, love seat or plush chair in a color that pairs well with light blue, you'll want to pick up a few throw pillows in this hue. Alternatively, line the couch with a plush heated blanket in Lagoon, a shade that's quite similar to Pantone's spring choice.
Natural Accent Tones Work Well
Once you've incorporated light blues into your rooms, you'll want to find shades that pair well with the selection, but don't draw attention away from your color of choice. Pantone noted that natural colors work best with aquamarines. These include beige, brown, light green and light orange. If you've got aquamarine walls or furniture, using these supplemental shades on curtains, lamp shades and rugs is a great way to pull the room together. You could also opt for wall decor in these colors to make the wall shade pop more.
Other Ways to Incorporate Color
When it comes to creative decorating tips, you know exactly where to look for inspiration - Pinterest.
Try a fun and easy do-it-yourself project to get your creative juices flowing and blend these shades together. For example, create your own flower vase by coating an old glass milk bottle with light blue paint. When the exterior is dry, paint vertical beige brush strokes along the outside.
