3 Color Trends to Consider for Your Next Event
Looking for ways to keep your events fresh and vibrant? Styling with furniture and décor that follow the latest color trends of the year, such as berry hues, soothing greens and earth tones, are sure to take your event to the next level. To successfully leverage on-trend color schemes and styles, follow these three tips:
Add a Retro Flare with Earth Tones
Try incorporating organic, natural shades for a throwback event ambiance. Mid-century and Danish modern seating that features soft velvet fabrics in rust orange or coffee-brown offer a comfortable spot for guests to relax in style. Throw in more texture with contrasting patterned and velvet accent pillows, and the end result is an updated twist on the ‘70s era that your attendees will recognize.
Chill Out with Cool Pastels
Green hues in all shades are trending neutrals when it comes to color. If you’re looking to create a Zen outdoor indoor or outdoor event space, you’ll want to incorporate comfortable furnishings in various shades from moss to sage to forest green into your design. Furnishings in green tones create a calming palette that pairs seamlessly with a wide range of warm tone colors – a great starting point for any indoor or outdoor event. Coordinate with accessories in metal and organic materials such as marble and granite for a contrasting look.
Go Bold with Berry Hues
Introduce berry hues into your event designs to make a vibrant statement. In 2019, daring and bright colors and patterns are on the rise in all elements of design, especially furniture. A cranberry red sofa or a purple chair or bench ottoman is sure to appeal to your guests and create a memorable first impression. Accessorize with white shag rugs and faux greenery such as palm trees or boxwood hedges to balance the look and lend sophistication.
Whether you’re looking to experiment with daring colors or present a retro-inspired design, make your next event a unique experience with these fresh and exciting color trends.
