Colors That Need To Go On Vacation

Are you seeing the same colors over and over and over again? Did the color wheel just get smaller? Did the paint decks get smaller? Then why the heck are the same colors be used? There’s a very colorful world out there people so let’s put some of our faves on vacations and start hiring some new colors. What do you say?

Let’s talk about a few colors that need to go on vacation. Now I’m not saying that they are ugly or bad color choices I’m just saying that they have run their course.

Purple. It’s been around for a really long time. I remember noticing a flood of it already in 2009. I’ve also seen it during my color visits to at High Point Market just last year. Does a color need to be around this long? No.

Turquoise. Ok I know I’m going to get a lot of feedback on this one because turquoise is just a very popular color and I see it everywhere! We see it combined with orange and green in both fashion and in the home. We need to stop this color combination because it’s just a little too long in the tooth. Pretty? Abso-freakin-lutly!!!! BUT, still just been around in the home a little too long.

THEE Coastal Hue. Oh how I dislike putting this color on the list but it’s a particular cool neutral that I’m protesting and I can bet my bottom dollar that you already have it in your home. Name revealed, Sea Salt SW 6204. Yes, yes, yes I know it’s beautiful but trust me when I tell you that there are other colors that you haven’t even though of yet that are just as if not more beautiful than Sea Salt. I did say trust me right?

Blue. This hue will NEVER leave the home and I know this. It’s in so many bedrooms and actually looks good and belongs there. Just keep in mind that the color wheel is really big and there are millions of options that are just as beautiful for your bedroom.

    At least the colors that are stuck in rotation are better than black and red shag 😉

    So true! I’m not saying these are ugly or bad colors by any means I just wish they weren’t used to much.
