There are many ways to embrace a new color trend, and many levels of commitment when doing so, from adding an accessory to your ensemble to covering your bedroom walls in a fresh coat of the shade. And when it comes to color trends, there's no greater expert than Pantone, who designers, artists, and trendsetters look to to learn what hue is going to be the next big thing. The company has predicted that Aspen Gold will be having a major moment this spring, and if you're tempted to try it out in your home, there's a ton of stylish yellow home decor pieces that just might be your gateway.
Sure, Pantone has deemed Living Coral the official color of 2019, but it's also noticed a handful of other shades that you'll be seeing everywhere, from the runways to the aisles of your favorite home goods store. It seems the jury's out and the vibrant, saturated Aspen Gold is one to watch this spring. The company, who regularly lists seasonal colors on its site, describes the hue as "brightening our day" and "[stimulating] feelings of joy and good cheer." Sounds like something anyone could use to start the new year off right.
Regardless of whether you want to dabble with the color by way of a little decorative accent or try out the wallpaper trend with it, there are so many pieces of furniture and accessories in the shade to shop for your new-and-improved living space now — many of which are discounted thanks to stellar end-of-year sales.
