Rainbow Bright-Color Trends

The rainbow effect in home decor is a bold move, and also a happy one.  Nothing sends a more cheery vibe than a rainbow array of colors to come home to everyday.  The rainbow’s past reputation may have leaned towards more of a juvenile color scheme fit for a baby nursery, but in this post, we’ll prove your preconceived notions wrong.

To achieve this look one needs to start with high quality furnishings and craftsmanship to not come off looking cheap.  Secondly, mixing textures and layering colors create a cozy environment like in the above image.  The rich velvety sofa and sateen fuchsia chairs are dramatic yet very inviting.

The Jigsaw Designers love adding a bit of whimsy to a space like the indoor swing above; it relaxing and inspiring at the same time.  Ditch the chrome stools for a striking set in your favorite rainbow brights this spring to liven up the kitchen or breakfast bar.

If you’re inner ‘Dorthy’ is ready to commit to the cheery somewhere-over-the-rainbow vibe, add something a bit more permanent like painting the stairs or implementing your favorite hues to your kitchen reno like the harmonious colors above.  What an inspiring way to start the day in a lively kitchen like this?

The quick fix: pillows, rugs, or art paired with nick-nacks will always be a fun refresher when layering onto a neutral palette.  Resources like DWR, Etsy, Jonathan Adler and Art.com are few places to find life filled bright ideas .   Ultimately, as the trends change, these are easy pieces to update without the need to renovate.

Faux Antlers

Animal antlers are not just for hunting lodges anymore.  They are also for those who seek a little whimsy in their décor.  The longevity of this trend in displaying faux and real animal horns and antlers is definitely one that’s up for debate.  Nonetheless, these interesting little oddities are simply…cool.  Antlers and horns can be found in a variety of styles and materials; solid white ceramic, printed paper mache’, chrome and of course the real thing.

The Jigsaw Designers love the look of horns and antlers mixed into a modern space with clean lines.  Get this look by placing a single pair of antlers or several pair on a solid brightly painted wall for a fun and modern look.   The antlers in any style can bring an element of surprise to almost any room.  We also recommend using a statement color antler with exaggerated features as a focal point in a living or dining room, possibly above the fire place for a quirky conversation piece.

Below are a few of our favorites.  These interesting creatures are quite easy to find on-line.  Some of the best styles we have found can be purchased in custom colors on Etsy.  Others are available on-line at West Elm, Restoration Hardware and a variety of other on-line venues.
