Color Trends for Spring 2016

We know that Simply White is the color of the year according to Benjamin Moore, but decorating only in white can be a bit limiting. Looking to the first buds of spring, here are some 2016 colorful lighting trends that the New Year has to bring.

Pantone released their Spring 2016 color palette back in September so we may be a little tardy to the party, but we don’t mind. The color palette itself is a beautiful array of popping primaries and ocean hued blues, scattered with some eye catching pinks.It goes from soft and muted to electrically charge in minutes. While Pantone steers the fashion world, I think these modern lights wear this spring’s colors nicely.
