Each year, color experts for PPG and Pantone look carefully at current trends in fashion and design and select a hue they expect to be prominent in the coming year. In the past few years, bright and vibrant colors have dominated color trends. This year, however, the winners are a little different as both picks are more muted, pastel colors. From buttercream yellow to a pink-purple hue, these colors are perfect for your Central Florida new home.
PPG Pittsburgh Paints ‘The Voice of Color’ chose Turning Oakleaf, a soft buttercream yellow, as their 2014 Color of the Year. This delicate hue is refreshing, energetic and calming all at the same time, and is soft enough to be used as a neutral yet bright enough to infuse sunshine-like energy. According to the Voice of Color experts, Turning Oakleaf reflects a spirit of pause and refresh which is the perfect vibe to bring into the upcoming year.
Highland Homes was excited to see Turning Oakleaf named Color of the Year because back in June 2013, Stacey Perez, Manager of the Highland Homes Personal Selection Studio, selected this color to use in our newest model at Palmetto Estates.
"It is a warm color with lots of potential to accent with. I paired it up with a light lime green and gray tones,쳌 Perez says. Since Turning Oakleaf is more of a neutral hue, it can be used as a base color with brightly colored accents. For example, Turning Oakleaf is a great color to pair with citrus tones and warmer neutrals as well as blues, purples and greens.
Interestingly enough, different shades of purple and pink have been tops in the fashion world for quite some time but just recently made it over to the world of home color trends. Highland Homes has used shades of purple in several of our model homes in Central Florida in the past few years, and the color creates a welcoming embrace. We are excited to see it recognized as a top style trend for 2014.
