inside the next issue of Better Homes and Gardens
I got a sneak peek at Better Homes and Gardens’ March Color Issue, and immediately wanted to share it with all of you! "The collection of six colors highlights the most current trends in home and fashion, in hues that complement each other through multiple combinations."
“For 2015, our approach is all about optimism and a fresh outlook – adding vibrant pops of color in places where you might least expect them,” says Gayle Butler, Editor-in-Chief, Better Homes and Gardens.
The colors for this year are bold, tropical and sophisticated. I think the best way to use them, is to focus on one of these colors or to create a personal combination with just 2-3 colors in your palette. Use these as accents in an otherwise neutral room or to update your look with accessories for 2015.
Better Homes and Gardens East Coast Editor, Eddie Ross says, “Modern switches in color can completely change the look and feel of anything from a container garden to a table setting. Even the right shade of glassware can elevate the experience of something as simple as enjoying a cup of coffee.”
The issue hits newsstands on February 17th.
