2013 Forecast: Bold and Beautiful Hues

Wow that’s some life: The Atlantic

Remember the complicated storylines, big hair and bling, debonair beaus and steamy love scenes of the soap operas of old?  Oh how exciting the drama and lushness of these imaginary eventful lives appeared.  Just as “The Bold and the Beautiful” used to put our grandmothers into a trance, bold color is popping up over all design channels.

Walls, upholstered pieces and accessories are proudly displaying their peacock feathers in vibrant shades of yellow, green and pumped up cool colors.  The days of “All Neutral Everything” are over. However these shining stars shine brightest when they are given the leading role and not made to compete with too many other divas.  They perform best in an ensemble cast including rich woods, stark whites, glossy blacks or natural textures.  Allow these bold shades to do all the work, while more subdued colors paint the backdrop warm and easy.

This year, pick out the drama queen shade of your cinematic dreams and have a little design battle….Dynasty style.
