Color Trends in the bedroom are related to creating a personal space that expresses your innermost desires. For many of us, that means an environment in which to relax and rejuvenate.
“People want to simplify their lives, and we’re seeing that trend is reflected in the color palettes of colors for bedroom decor and the whole house,” says Jack Bredenfoerder, president of Color Marketing Group (CMG) ( www.colormarketing.org ), an international non-profit organization of more than 1,100 designers who meet annually to forecast color trends in the industries of fashion, interior design of cars. CMG predicts that the environment will also play an important role in soft tones that are taken from nature, to the bedroom.
“These nuances, especially the shadows tones ranging from brown to dark, are perfect for the bedroom, because they are breeding and the satisfaction of our souls,” says Bredenfoerder CMG.
“Greens and browns are a classic combination that is very popular now,” says Nancy Satterberg, Seattle-based designer. “It’s an ideal combination for the bedroom by the sensation of heat. You want to feel comfortable in her bedroom. “
Satterberg warns that care must be taken when choosing shades of green, because some shades are not in the skin tones. “You should choose something fresh and light, not too deep or too busy,” says the designer.
