The Pantone color forecast for Spring 2013 is out. I will create a collection of sets using one color trend at the time, to give you ideas on how to update your home decor look. Here in my first set, an idea on how to update your home decor with poppy red. It is a great vibrant color that will go well with all neutral colors. Like ivory, beige, and tan. Here in my set I paired it with a brown coffee color palette that you can take from Spring all the way to Fall. The flower Red Poppy is the inspiration behind this color. It blooms every Spring and Summer in the meadows.
Do you know that Red Poppy is a wild flower native to Europe, Asia, and Africa. After World War 1 it became a symbol of remembrance in Europe of the fallen soldiers. The Red Poppy is also the symbol of the American legion, given to the veterans on Memorial Day.
