Grays create a nice backdrop for decor if done correctly.

Guys these are great! Big fan of bold colors. Some of those combos have a definite 70s vibe. Love the orange/cream combo. Always have loved oranges w hardwood floors.

I find even the decorators up here are fairly conservative w their colors for the most part, which is a shame.

Keep it coming guys. Great to see some inspirational colors here.

Default Grays Here to and Creams

In Cali Grays are really popular here too have been since summer '12 and I see the trend continuing for a while. Also creams and taupe seems anything but beige. I'm seeing lots of modern monochromatic color schemes (ie clean hard lines, black, white and gray).

Also homeowners are wanting pops of color. This year the trends from the major retailers are saying natural colors are in for 2014. A blog I read cited a statistic that said HO want to add color to their home.


All of that said here are my color pics for 2014 trends (Benjamin Moore):
Kendall Charcoal │Shoreline │Ebony Slate
Prentis Cream│Allspice│Brazilian Rain Forest


I just posted a blog post to my site about this yesterday don’t know if posting link against rules but says pretty much what I just wrote.
