Last month we talked about Pantone’s selection of emerald as the color for 2013. In addition to pops of vivid colors like this one, we’re also noticing a trend toward the soft neutral hue of vanilla.
Vanilla tones are perfect for beach houses because of their strong ties to the colors found on the shore. It sets the perfect backdrop for a relaxing environment, and it can easily be dressed up with metallics for a more glamorous setting or jazzed up with bold accent colors.
Here are a few of our favorite items in vanilla, as well as a few fabulous room settings featuring the same color schemes.
Will you be adding a splash of vanilla to your home this year? Leave a comment to share your plans with us.
