Blue is such a strong color, and with the two different shades bringing a sense of calm and peace, there really isn’t a way to go wrong in any room.  It’s a versatile color that can be used as an accent or a feature.  White pairs well with Mediterranean Blue for a striking contrast, while warm neutrals like beige and grey pair well with Seaport for a nature inspired feel.

3. Pastels 

Shades of purple, palm greens and flamingo pinks will make a great impact in 2015.  Pastels are great when looking to create a calming atmosphere but to make an impact they need to be contrasted with shocking neons. Otherwise everything tends to blend together.
