interior decorating color tips: Who Says Home Stagers Can't Be Inspired by Color? Forecasted Colors for 2011! - 01/18/11 09:36 AM
Donna Dazzo - Home Stager in the Hamptons & New York (Designed to Appeal, LLC) offers terrific information about the forecasted colors for 2011.   Check out the beautiful color palettes.

In home staging, we like to stick to a neutral color palette so that we can make the home that's for sale appeal to the broadest range of buyers.  However neutral does not have to mean boring.
I love to use pops of color (red, turquoise, orange, greens, blues) in throw pillows, artwork and decorative objects against the more neutral background colors (beige, grays, whites) in the furniture, bedding and walls.
