Spring Color Palettes

Get rid of the dark colors of winter, because spring is the time for light, sparkle and bright colors. Here are three exciting spring color schemes you can try. While one normally thinks of spring colors as being pastel, you can also choose bold colors to give the room a punch.

1) Add plenty of white to this royal blue palette as part of your spring decorating colors. Cream is a beautiful backdrop for royal blue, keeping the color palette from becoming a marine theme. Even a touch of very light, light lavender helps keep the whole look contemporary but not nautical. Add some flowers and some antique prints, and you've got a classic style that says "spring decorating colors".

2) Add white to this spring palette of pink, tan and gold. Choose the lighter version of one color for your background color. Let the pink and antique gold be your accent colors. Sprinkle white everywhere, especially white porcelain. The room with sparkle. It's an amazing color palette.

3) Choose a gold with more yellow for this spring color palette. Turquoise is an underused color most of the time but can be quite effective when you want the room to "pop". Keep the turquoise subdued in larger items, but come full throttle in small accessories for that added  dramatic spring palette punch. Notice how this palette is equally divided between strong, bold colors and soft pastel colors. Remember that one color should dominate in the room. Use the most dominant color on elements in the room that you definitely want to draw the attention to.

Be daring. Try new ideas. Spring color schemes can add the perfect touch to help you enjoy the warmer months to come.
