This Year’s Top Color Trend Is Inspired By Beyoncé & Jay-Z
Power pastels are making their way from pop culture into our homes. The pairing of pink or mauve and saturated seafoam shed any geriatric associations once Beyoncé and Jay-Z donned pastel suits and outshone the Mona Lisa in a video for their first joint album. A hit of tawniness gives millennial pink a grown-up look, while seafoam and shades of grey-green are fresher alternatives to navy accessories and upholstery. These colors inject softness and sophistication to outlast their trendy coupling. Get ideas for incorporating this hot 2019 color trend into your space below.
