Orange You in Love with Young America?

Newsflash, this just in… orange is a new neutral! It is one of the hottest new colors for 2013 and it’s popping up everywhere from runway fashion to home furnishings and interior design.

Orange you enjoying orange and the spring color trends? We’re loving the color palette of navy, orange, bright green and a hint of gray.

Want to go bold in your kids’ rooms? Orange is the perfect color and it’s great to mix it with other colors. Start with selecting one wall as your main focal point in the room.  Paint a wide navy and white stripe (or another neutral like dark gray) on our focal wall. The contrasting light and dark colors provide visual interest and anchor the room. Next, select painted furnishings to add interest and pops of color. Have fun with orange painted accessories, lighting, art and pillows.

Gender Neutral Nurseries: Pale pinks, blues, and greens are popular choices when it comes to color selections, but you can easily get locked into boy/girl specific colors. With so many great choices of fabric, wall coverings and paint, colors can take a room to the next level. Like pink? Make it coral with a pop of teal blue. Want a blue hue? Goodbye baby blue, hello navy. Add brighter greens and a pop of orange. Mix in patterns by trying a fun patterned wall covering on one wall and paint the other walls a complementary solid.

Going Beyond Pink and Lavender: Your little girl has grown out of the pink, cutesy animal character print on her bed and now it’s time for an update. Start with a sophisticated, yet sweet, French-style bed in cream or white.  When selecting colors for her room, try using a fresh, feminine color palette in soothing teal blues and pale yellow. Select a geometric contemporary wall covering as a focal point for one wall adding interest and complementing, not overwhelming, the overall feel of the room.

For furniture, bedding and decor continue with cream/white, pale teal, soft yellow and add an unexpected pop of black – she’ll love it!

Daybed Design:

Daybeds can be a great alternative to a standard bed in a boy’s bedroom or girl’s bedroom. This bed style is also great in nurseries as a place for parents to rest and in playrooms for sleepovers, especially when the daybed as a trundle.

Daybeds can float in the room as a centerpiece and make a style statement or can be placed in front of a wall, which gives a casual living room feel and takes up less space in a room. Color flexibility is a great attribute of daybeds as well – there are many wood and metal finish options as well as fabric options for upholstered daybeds – which are so very popular now.

Try a contemporary style daybed, select a neutral base color and add lots of bright or patterned pillows to spice it up. You can change your style anytime by just replacing the bedding, pillows and other accessories.
