If you’re ready to ditch drab wall colors along with the cold weather, then keep on reading. There are few things that lend an entirely new look to a space like a fresh coat of paint or a pop of color in a bold accent piece; which is why it’s important to be strategic about which hues you choose to decorate a room. Not sure which route to go this year? Team Domino dishes on the colors it’s loving this season to help guide your next decor decision—be it as dramatic as a new wall color or as low-risk as a new throw pillow.

I’m all for strong emerald greens this coming season. While there’s something especially nostalgic about this powerful hue, I think it’s always guaranteed to make a fresh statement, particularly in the warmer months, in the form of a fun surface—be it a velvet armchair or textured wall covering.

YELLOW! Last summer, I was obsessed with having a bold, primary-colored yellow hue on my nails and I was recently reminded of how perfect the sunshine-y color is by a few shows at New York Fashion Week. Delpozo always has the perfect color combinations, and I loved seeing yellow paired with bold blues and super bright pinks. It’s about to be my go-to accent hue for all my accessories—home and wardrobe included.

Still feeling pink! I know, I know, millennial pink is kind of “over” but this Williamsburg home with the Mociun-inspired pink ombre shelves and the dusty rose velvet chairs really amped me back up on it. I mean, how magical are those Jonathan Adler chairs?! Hermione Granger level magic. And the touches of gold on the shelves and the base of the chair are next level.

I’m always one to shy away from color—my apartment is the embodiment of whitewashed minimalism—but this season, I feel particularly drawn to a primary red. The vibrant hue is making a serious comeback, especially in interiors, and I feel pretty inclined to get in on it.

Pale blue is fresh and fun, and reminds me of crashing ocean waves or the first sign of rain and flowers after months of bare trees. Dark can get a little depressing, but the pale color is super soothing and calming, which makes it great for sleep!

I’m addicted to this sublime deep shade of green, used in this Barcelona home designed by Guillermo Santomà. So bold yet so serene. I want a dress, a couch, a rug and a wall all in this color.
Tracy Cho, Executive Director of Marketing, Growth, and Analytics
This tranquil lilac color—“Calluna” by Farrow & Ball—is top of my list. It’s subtle and soft and goes with everything.

I’m really into deep raspberry right now; which I know may seem more like a fall color, but I’m loving pairing it with lighter shades of pink or red for a tonal look that’s bright and cheery. It also makes a great statement against a stark white backdrop, if minimalism is more your thing.
Mackenzie Dunn, Digital Editorial Intern
Ever since the opening of the real-life Breakfast at Tiffany’s, I’ve been dreaming about how to use this iconic blue-green hue (or something similar) in a home. Something about it feels bright and cheery, yet ultimately super luxe. I think the key here is to use it as a fun accent, or pair it down with more monochromatic furnishings.
