It seems like only yesterday I wrote my 2013 home decor trends post, and I’ve already looked at Pantone’s Colour of the year, Radiant Orchid, and suggested ways to integrate this vibrant colour into your decor. What else can we expect in the coming year?
While Radiant Orchid is Pantone’s colour of the year, I think it will be the blues that will take over the stage in 2014. Joan Mitchell had this all figured out in her 1972 painting! She painted the best blues ever and these are the ones you’ll be seeing more of in 2014.

|A range of blues for 2014|
This year the popular blues are much deeper leaning toward cobalt and navy. But what can you put with so much blue?
|Add yellow as an accent in 2014|
|Gold accents work well with navy blue and cobalt|
And don’t forget vibrant oranges or greens with dark blues. The sky is the limit with this colour. I thought the art work in the mood board above gives lots of accent choices.

It seems all versions of blue are hot this year. Is there blue in your future?
