Chocolate is no longer just a temptation for the taste buds. This color has taken its cue from the fashion runway and is appearing in great rooms, living rooms, and bedrooms across America.

Rich colors like chocolate brown, eggplant, and burnt red are ultra popular in home dÈcor. And, while dark, they’re still great for light and breezy summer, especially when they’re teamed with softer colors like aqua blue, silver, baby pink, camel, white, yellow, and pale green. “When introduced in these combinations, the popular colors like chocolate can give your favorite living spaces style and warmth without overwhelming a room,” said Cindy Anderson and Gretchen Loch-Reines, co-owners of Kerkhoff Interiors of De Pere.

These colors are appearing with increased frequency not only on walls, but also in fabrics, artwork, flooring, and accents. And you don’t have to re-do an entire room to get in on the summer dÈcor trends. “You can keep your basic pieces, such as your sofa and table, and just introduce a few new pieces to rejuvenate your room and give it a fresh, updated look [in time for summer], said Loch-Reines.

Seeing red…or terra cotta,…or burgundy

It’s not uncommon to gravitate toward neutral colors like tans and beiges in your dÈcor. But while these earthtones continue to be mainstays in every room’s dÈcor this season, you can easily jazz up a room by adding a splash of trendy colors in the form of pillows, throws, colored glass vases, candles, rugs, artwork, or floral arrangements. “You don’t have to change everything in a room for a fresh, new look,” said Anderson. If your living area is currently a blend of tans or beiges, consider adding some burnt red pillows, a red chair, or some eye-popping red sheer curtains for a pop of color. Or add a metal plate in a stand, paint one wall in silver, or add an iridescent floor vase to incorporate metallics into your color palette.

“Reds are hot, hot, hot,” said Loch-Reines. “Rich reds, burgundies, and Bordeaux are among the most popular colors, making an appearance in furniture, wall coverings, fabrics, and rugs. It’s fun and cheerful when paired with yellow and looks great with all woods and the earth-toned core pieces that many people have in their living areas.”
