Taking more inspiration from Pantone’s prediction of the hot color trends for spring 2012, we’ve showcased two more color combos on the blog today. Take a look…

The first scheme features a daring Ikat fabric from Schumacher that features navy, margarita, tangerine, and grape. Along with this fabric, there is a white Tulip chair with green cushion from Design Within Reach, a tangerine glass pendant from Francis King, and a blue console table from Room and Board.

Our second color combo is also a bold one! This graphic print from KDR showcases tangerine, marigold, grape, hot pink, margarita, navy, bright blue, and sandy taupe. Furnishings that go along with this color scheme include a painted cabinet from KDR, a ceramic based lamp from Crate and Barrel, and a stylish blue chair from Blu Dot.

Would you use either of these color schemes in your home? If so, which room?

ROYGBIV. You might have learned that in school when studying color: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet.

Here’s our hauthaus take on the color wheel with our projects plugged in as references…

Red: Master bedroom and bathroom remodel in South Minneapolis. Chrome, white marble, and espresso cabinets set the scene in this dramatic bathroom.

Orange: “Away Room” remodel in a home in Chanhassen. It’s the perfect spot to read the news paper, have some coffee or just get away…

Yellow: Showcase Home Kitchen in 2003 with Bonnie Birnbaum; located in St. Paul. Since the clients entertain a lot, a large gathering space was incorporated into the kitchen design. The complimentary color blue makes the yellow really pop.

Green: Master bedroom and bathroom remodel in Minnetonka. We used a warm green on the walls along with other hues of green throughout the master suite. A silky lemongrass custom duvet compliments the striped cream and green draperies. The black painted furniture accents the fresh green nicely.

Blue: Home furnishings project in Plymouth. The cool blue walls set the tone of the home and evoke a sense of the east coast and water.

Violet: Dining room remodel in Chanhassen. This smoky grey-purple makes the space seem warm and inviting.

Since it’s been a little grey and rainy lately in Minnesota, we thought it might be nice to add a little bit of a color cure to your day! We hope you enjoyed it!

What’s your favorite way to add color into your interior (and exterior) spaces?

cheers! 🙂

Today I’m taking a little color inspiration from the pretty purple Royal Candles and Geraniums flowers  that are outside of my office window…

Purple at home: 12 light chandelier by Cyan Lighting, abstract animal print wallpaper by Romo, and Theatre two seater sofa by DWR.

Purple in Life: carry-on luggage and garden hose sprayer from Crate & Barrel, and lavender infused sleeping blanket from Patina Stores.

Purple in fashion: watch by Marc Jacobs, leather heels by Michael Antonio, and Floral wrap scarf from Anthropologie.

What are you taking inspiration from today?
