Color Trend Report Issue#2: Light Blue

Though it can be exhausting to keep up with trends, sometimes a little direction can be helpful.  Here’s some counsel on what’s happening with 2019 fall color trends so you feel informed when making changes around the house this season.  I’m a firm believer that there is no authority on design and though there are experts who can certainly help the self-professed ‘person without a clue’ everyone should tap into their personal preferences when making a final decision about what does or doesn’t work for their environment.  With that, I present a selection of really scrumptious colors that work well applied in a variety of ways. Warm earth tones, bright bold hues and some more muted options. Something for everyone!
