Color Trends for 2011

Color is a wonderful thing. It can instantly change the look of a room and add vibrancy or calm to your home and paint areas.

In 2011, color experts sense that consumers painting the house are seeking balance after a bumpy economic ride and striving to express themselves not by showing off how much they have, but who they really are.

An array of purple tones have been spotted in the home and on the fashion runway. A mysterious shade, purple is associated with both nobility and spirituality. The opposites of hot red and cool blue combine to create this intriguing color.

Forecasters also note a range of pale, yet powerful colors that are setting trends in 2011. Think noticeable neutrals, smoky-blue grays, and other safe colors that won’t quickly go out of fashion, yet are bold enough to make a statement.
