Pantone in Your Home: Shades for a Man’s Pad

In honor of Carolina STYLE Men’s Month, let’s take a look at a few of Pantone Institute’s Men’s Spring 2013 shades that are intriguing and trendy for a modern man’s home and closet.

We have seen the color green step onto the fashion and interior design scene this year.  Grayed Jade is a subtle green with gray undertones; if a relaxed atmosphere is what you seek this tone can be used for peaceful reflection.

When blue comes to mind (although this hue is also favored by women) we can’t help but associate it with masculinity.  Dusk Blue is a tranquil, serene shade that compliments a variety of colors including Grayed Jade.   Pair this powdery pigment with Monaco Blue to add contrast to interior design (click here for a look at Pantone in Your Home: Monaco Blue).

A warm neutral such as Linen is a must have for the Spring and Summer seasons.  Fresh and luminous, this tone accentuates almost any color scheme in the home, especially Grayed Jade and Dusk Blue.   This tint is easy to build on, and looks great when patterns are thrown into the equation!
