Purples, soft blues, metallics, golden greens, grays and yellow are the hot color for 2009. These vibrant colors should be tempered with neutrals to make them grounded and livable, creating a youthful, yet sophisticated style. Create a conversation by incorporating fur-faux or real, burnished metallic leathers, linen, and some heavy distressed wood. These color trends are very similar to what is going on in the fashion world today. Coral is also a big color for interiors and on the runway. Combine gray or neutral to these colors for a calming effect. Metallics are a must-have in 2009 in both modern and traditional settings.
