Color is a powerful thing. It can lift your mood, pump up your energy and bring in loads of interest to what would otherwise be four walls. This power is probably the reason why choosing the right colors can be an intimidating job – but worry no more. The experts at Pantone have made the process simple and fun: Just look for the palette that resonates with you.
The Footprints palette is the ninth and final in our series of home color collections for 2013, and if you’re looking for a palette that packs a punch, look no further. Take a peek at the six shades in this collection: Tangerine Tango (the 2012 color of the year), Peacock Blue, Pink Flambé, Solar Power, Oasis and Sudan Brown.
Now imagine coming home to this pleasing palette each day. We think Footprints would make a fun family room:
Start with the blank slate of the Amore Playful Modular Sectional. It’s the perfect foundation for a Footprints family room, as it can be moved around into different configurations. In flax, it is just waiting to be dressed up with accessories.
Next, add some colorful accent pillows. The Zig Zag Printed Pillow has an eye-catching pattern that will pop against the light sectional. We pulled three colors from the Footprints palette – tangerine, green and blue. All feature the same pattern and mix effortlessly. The pillows are filled with a feather and down insert for extra comfort.
Next, add an accent chair from the stylish Elsie Collection. We offer you two choices: vibrant blue or apple green. The chairs feature colorful graphic upholstery, which help to liven up the room. And the sleek lines and slim wooden legs work well with the room’s contemporary feel.
It’s time for a rug. This is another opportunity to add more color to the room. Choose a splash of global flair with the Fusion Moroccan tile print rug. Or bring home the herringbone-patterned rug from the Geo Chic collection. Either choice will be a bold addition to your living space.
Every family room needs a cocktail table. We don’t want to cover our statement rugs so we choose the glass and nickel Coylin Square Cocktail Table. The sleek metro modern design is artistic and a perfect addition to the contemporary decor.
Finally, complete the room with a media center. We love the Delmar 60-inch Console, which easily holds your plasma or LCD TV. The rich maple color provides a touch of warmth to the room and picks up the Sudan Brown of the Footprints palette. The open storage areas and glass doors help organize and protect your media items, and provide an opportunity to add some accent pieces. Perhaps DVD boxes in Pink Flambé?
