Many designers have predicted that there will be a trend towards bolder, brighter colors in home decor in 2012. Judging by what I’ve seen in home furnishing stores in the past few weeks, it’s looking like this prediction may hold true. Over the holidays my sister took me to a Maryland store called “Urban Country” that she was pretty sure I would love – let’s just say she knows me pretty well because I was in heaven! They had amazing upholstered pieces that were almost all made with neutral fabrics but they added some bold, bright colors with pillows and throws.
I’ve also seen some beautiful colorful pillows and throws at Anthropologie such as this Orimono Flower Pillow with petals made of various jewel-tone prints

and this beautifully embroidered Finishing Flourish Pillow.

Anthropologie also has a gorgeous brightly colored Sari Throw that is made with strands of recycled saris!

All of these pillows and throws are pretty pricey ($90 and up) so I was excited to walk into Home Goods and see that they have gotten in a load of brightly colored pillows at a fraction of that price.
All of these beauties are just $24.99:
And these gals were just a few bucks more at $29.99:
Of course, each Home Goods has their own unique items so your store may not have these exact pillows but I’ll bet you’ll find some bright pillow colors when you stroll down their pillow aisles! What do you think about this trend – do you love it or prefer to stick with more neutral colors?
Does anyone have a great New Year’s resolution? One of mine is to have a more organized home in 2012. Assuming that I stick with this resolution (I don’t have the greatest track record in being resolute with my resolutions….), you’ll see some 2012 blog posts with organizational tips that I’ve found to be helpful! Happy New Year to all of you!
