Color Trends for Spring 2016


Lyrical  is (according to the dictionary) “having  an artistically beautiful or expressive quality.”

Behr’s lyrical living colors are neutral, but put together in a room do make an expressive statement.  The room below is a classic example of pairing dark and light.  They play perfectly off each other.

Colors are symphony gold, ivory keys, mauve melody, bowstring, and opus.




I prefer neutral colors such as these because they are timeless and never go out of style.

Walls are symphony gold which anchors the room with it’s warm tone.  Many textures are brought in for further interest with the artwork, area rug, chair tufting, and glass chandelier.

The ceiling is done in mauve melody.  It doesn’t look like there is any mauve in it to me, but more taupe.  The french doors are opus which is a darker, taupe-y brown.  It’s hard to tell but the ceiling, trim, and cabinetry are done in a high gloss finish.

This is a color palette I can embrace and enjoy!

  1. I really like these neutral contrasts! A neighbor’s tree removal has left my curtain-less bedroom window blasted by summer sunrise. I debated what to add over the white shades. Now I’m inspired to play with pale colors to tone down the early brightness without darkening the room overmuch. Thank you.
