Color: It’s not a four letter word

Color is all around us. Take a look around when you’re outside and all you’ll see is the spectrum of nature. However, for many interiors, neutral has become the go-to palette when designing. While neutrals do present a clean, crisp atmosphere and are a good base, accents of color are beginning to burst back on the scene.  
“Surrounding yourself with neutrals is a serene and quiet way to live, however… it can be bland. By adding color with your artwork or a piece of furniture, it creates a liveliness that I love in a room,” says Barclay Mutz, an interior designer and owner of Gray Horse Interiors. 
At the beginning of 2017, Pantone highlighted many hues of green, with their chosen “color of the year” being “Greenery”. According to HGTV, “Green continues to gain strength from its association with the growing shift toward eco-consciousness. It will show up in everything from fabrics to accessories to countertops.”
With our community’s coastal locale, shades of greens, along with hues of blue and turquoise are most definitely some accents that are right at home.

“I know too much color has been used when the space begins to feel cluttered or confusing. When color interferes with that feeling (of calm and serene), I know I’ve gone too far.” — Barclay Mutz

Bruce Gulszek, a designer at J. Miller’s Furniture, said, “Color has never really left us, it’s just that now that we’re feeling a bit more confidant with the economy, we as a whole are wanting a little more brightness in our surroundings. Art, pillows and decorative accessories are great sources of pops of color, a few touches scattered around a room tie everything together.”
In Barclay’s featured space, the large, open living area and adjoining dining room and kitchen feature a wall of windows streaming natural light and the blue hues of the waterfront into the neutral foundation. 
“By adding the emerald green velvet sofa and the large colorful original artwork, it has a wonderful sense of vibrancy while also remaining airy and peaceful,” she said. 
Keeping a space open and calming is of utmost importance. It’s when you begin to over-do that colors become an issue. 
“You don’t want to go overboard with a jumble of colors scattered all over a space; two or three items of coordinating colors such as aqua, sea foam and spa blue, or, for a little more drama, think coral and turquoise,” said Gulszek. 
Mutz echoes his sentiment, “I know too much color has been used when the space begins to feel cluttered or confusing. When color interferes with that feeling (of calm and serene), I know I’ve gone too far.”
