Color trends come and go, but one constant remains: the most powerful element in home design is color, and Plum is back! In the coming year, we will see purple home décor welcomed back to the ranks of trendy. As you receive your fall catalogs showing off the new product collections, watch for ways to bring plum into your home décor.

In its darkest form, plum was seen in combinations with warm shades of mustard, grey, olive, and rich reds. The soft, almost ethereal, side of plum paired wonderfully with the warm grays and linens for a more subdued room setting.

This time around purple is taking on a sophisticated look. Instead of royal purple, we find dusty plum joining the new home décor color palettes. Plum is already showing up in home décor products. As the year progresses and fall product lines are released, expect to see it become more and more prevalent. While plum brings quiet color to a room when paired with gray, it can also be blended with tangerine or sunny gold for a modern pop of color.
