Although I am interested in the latest colour trends in home decor, I am not a slave to them. I choose gray as the neutral in my house in 1986 and it wasn’t a growing trend until 2011! It will still be my neutral ten years from now because I feel comfortable with gray as a backdrop.
We should all choose colours for our homes that we like. My first order of business in a colour consultation is to determine what kind of colours a client really likes. Next I check the room’s light orientation and lastly I look at the furniture and art in a space.
I just went through all my pins on my colour inspiration board on Pinterest to look for trends in my own pinning. I have quite a few with aqua. I do not have aqua in either of my homes, but I am obviously attracted to it because I love blue greens. How about you?
Aqua is a versatile, fresh colour as you can see from the interiors below. You can use it for an accent wall, to paint furniture, in pillows, or even on a ceiling….use a little or a lot….
And here we have the merest hint of a dark aqua with magenta and off white. This is a great way to have pops of colour without over committing.
