Vintage Decorating Ideas with Trending Colors

Retro Staff Comments

Ready to refresh your decor? Pantone, the foremost authority on color trends, has released their color forecast for Spring 2015. With the intensity of winter storms that we’ve been experiencing here in the northeast, many of us are not only ready for warmer weather but are looking forward to sprucing up our interiors with decor accessories that celebrate these exciting new color choices. Typically Spring is the time of year that people begin to freshen up their surroundings, and with Pantone’s color help, we’d like to make some terrific suggestions for adding new vintage inspired touches to your home inspired by the 2015 color palette.

The experts at Pantone described the 2015 color palette as the inspiration for, “Remembrances of retro delights, folkloric and floral art, and the magical worlds of tropical landscapes (that) restore a sense of well-being as we head to warmer months.” We believe this describes a color palette that can easily be incorporated into your current decor to freshen the look by enhancing the existing retro vibe and giving a vintage air with a modern edge to any room.

The quickest way to add a touch of a trending color is to add wall decor, such as a vintage inspired tin sign or a colorful retro style wall clock.
