Are you ready for a change in color that will get you in touch with your softer side? This spring colors are shifting from the intense colors we’ve been seeing to a softer, more soothing palette.
Pale pastels and neutrals from mother nature were stars of the fashion runways are are now all over the market for decorating homes.
The palette is a mix of soft cool hues blended with subtle warm tones.

The look was coined “En Plein Air” by the Pantone Color board. “En Plein Air” is a french term referring to painting the outdoors. It’s easy to see the influence of landscapes, water and nature from the cool tones in the spring 2015 color palette.
What a refreshing change from the strong colors that have dominated recently.
So, what’s your impression? Will you embrace the new color options?
Next time we’ll look at the warm tones in the color palette.
Until next time …
