At ABC Blind & Drapery, we love springtime in Austin because the whole Texas Hill Country gets a fresh coat of paint thanks to vibrant colors from all of the wildflowers. These bright cheerful flowers let us know warmer weather is on its way..

This also means it’s time for professionals to assess leading home décor colors and look to the leader of color, Pantone, for trends and inspiration.

It’s time to check out the top 10 colors for Spring 2016. If you’re in the market for window treatments, this article will help you hone in on your ideal color palette.

The Pantone Color Institute recently shared its fashion report for spring that celebrates unisex colors and happier, brighter tones. Thanks to cultural diversity inspired by art, travel, architecture and vegetation, we’re seeing Earthy tones with a twist of enhanced vibrancy.

Using Pantone Colors for Home Inspiration

If the fashion industry gives these colors a nod that means you’ll start seeing them in home design too ranging from paint colors to furnishings and accessories. If you’re building a home, buying a home or renovating your home, it’s helpful to know which home décor colors are “hot” for the upcoming season. When it comes to investing in colors for your home with window treatments, it’s nice to be ahead of the trend.

The Perfect Palette for Austin Homes
We think Austinites will love these colors because despite the fact that we’re a mecca for technology, homeowners appreciate the power of disconnecting and enjoying their hillside surroundings and beautiful lakes. That’s makes colors like Serenity, Snorkel Blue and Limpet Shell perfect for lake lovers. Earthy shades like Iced Coffee and Green Flash add depth and colors like Fiesta, Rose Quartz, Buttercup and Lilac Gray look just like the native wildflowers we can see outside.

Playing with Color in Draperies
If you’re interested in custom draperies for your home, you’ll find lots of color options that incorporate these colors. In addition to the array of colors, you’ll find interesting patterns and fabric textures that bring these color combinations to life.

Sunny colors can be achieved by mixing tones of Buttercup, Serenity and Snorkel Blue. Adding Fiesta or Green Flash creates an interesting contrast to a cool color scheme. If you prefer more neutral tones for your window coverings, you’ll appreciate the combination of Rose Quartz, Peach Echo and Iced Coffee.
