Spring is in the air! Circa’s lavish living spaces, with dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows and breathtaking views, provide the perfect canvas to inspire your home interior design goals. If previous seasons were all about sleek modernism and understated neutrals, this Spring is offers livable luxury, versatility, and effortless chic. One of the top trends is color, so we were excited when Pantone announced Viva Magenta as the Color of the Year. Other design directions include comfortable furniture, fluid lines, and calm, restorative spaces that utilize expressive natural materials and textures. You can also mix in a hint of vintage. Ready to give your home a new signature style? We’ve compiled a list of unique DTLA home decor resources so you can get the look you love.
Pantone’s Color of the Year: Viva Magenta vibrates with vim and vigor. It is a shade rooted in nature descending from the red family and expressive of a new signal of strength. Viva Magenta is brave and fearless, and a pulsating color whose exuberance promotes a joyous and optimistic celebration, writing a new narrative. Viva Magenta welcomes anyone and everyone with the same verve for life and rebellious spirit. It is a color that is audacious, full of wit, and inclusive of all.
Home improvement expert Bob Vila has some creative tips on how to incorporate Viva Magenta into your home style. Whether you splash it across an entire wall or use it as a pop of color, Viva Magenta is a bold and brilliant addition to your home design and daily life. Viva Magenta combines electrifying red with a smidgen of blue, resulting in a mood-boosting shot of color that invokes a feeling of strength through creativity. Try using this dynamic color on pillows, wall-hangings, window dressings, or furniture accent pieces. Pictured: Throw Pillow from Wayfair.
