This 2012 Color Trends show is all about five sexy colour trends projected for the year. In particular I’ll be showing you how you can integrate them into your kitchen and bath in a means which makes sense for your home.
This ideabook concentrates on purple, among my personal favorites. This season’s color predictions show the deep and pale purples you see at sunset and in wildflower fields, instead of those that appear in royal palaces. Purple is a simpler colour to use than you’d expect, because it’s such a natural shade. You find it in herbs and dusky horizons, vineyards and vegetable gardens.
If you have only seen purple a retro glam colour, you are missing its rich subtleties. Consider this: colors which occur in nature, especially when paired with their own natural neighbors, will work together in your house. Mother Nature is the best designer anywhere!
My bedroom and bath is going to be painted a soft plum this year. Here are a few ideas about how you might integrate the purple color trend into your property.

If you do not need an entirely purple area, consider one section of your kitchen. This bit of plum may be just enough for your preference.
Deep purple paint attractively matches the white cabinetry within this kitchen, and it also works well with walnut, walnut oak as well as organic cherry.
Fabrics are a great way to introduce color to a kitchen. Here, a deep aubergine pillow covers a banquette and performs well with the area’s white canvas.
Other fabric opportunities comprise dish washer, oven mitts, window coverings and area rugs.

Waterfall Ruffle Shower Curtain – $79
Adding colour with textiles also works nicely in the restroom. A shower curtain is a simple redo if you tire of this year’s fashion color. This shower curtain flirts with texture as well as colour. Wouldn’t it be fun for a teen girl or even a bachelorette’s bath?

Wallpaper delivers the opportunity to introduce both colour and pattern into a room. Here, the print mixes together with the bathtub and the wall beneath. A partial treatment allows for a conventional trimwork element within the room, which doesn’t compete with the bathtub facing it.
This look isn’t for the faint of heart, nor the apathetic housekeeper. But it’s a stunningly magnificent tile to integrate into a bath or kitchen project in which you want to create an impression. I envision that this one covering a powder room wall.

Purple gets playful in this Italian vanity. Its curves and gloss impart a levity into the space. The wall mount adds to the lighthearted feel of the space, as will the coordinating racetrack-shaped mirror over. If you are a purple fan with a sense of whimsy, this could be a fun addition to your master bath.
