Three C’s Create Decorating Palette

Behr paint has predicted the palettes of Confidence, Composure and Comfort for 2017. The colors that are making a splash in the Confidence column this spring are ocean blues, the brightness of yellows and blue greens that match up extremely well with colors from the Mid-Century Modern vibe.

When it comes to Composure, the colors are all about being calm and tranquil. Dark grays are just this when vintage light and bright colors are added to the decor, light blue-green pairs well with antique teals and aqua, and taupe and earth-toned greens of the 1960s bring it all to the forefront to match furniture, art and collectibles from Retro Knox in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Last, but not least is comfort, creating ease and freedom. This is equally true when it comes to the colors and matching them with the right furniture. For a more masculine feel, aqua and powder blue match up nicely with the wood and brass of the MCM era. Taking a more feminine direction are pastel pinks and muted yellows. Each of these colors bring on a soothing feel  to the décor they are within.
