The Friday 5: Color, Collections, Organization and More

1. BHG recently announced their 2015 Color Palette.  Here’s what they had to say about it “Hello, optimism! 2015 is all about a new outlook in vibrant color: greens as lush as a tropical leaf, chameleonlike corals, and grays that drip with drama.”  Thoughts?

The Colors

(In other color of the year news: Benjamin Moore chose Guilford Green, Sherwin Williams chose Coral Reef,  Pantone chose Marsala, and Elle Decor interviewed designers for their color choice.)

Radiant Orchid – 2014 Color of the Year

The entire design world is buzzing with the recent announcement of Pantone’s 2014 Color of the Year, Radiant Orchid.  This fuschia shade is a follow-up to the buzz of pastels we saw at this year’s High Point Furniture Market but with some energy and optimism.

So far, most of the discussion has been around the color itself, but at Schneiderman’s, our focus is on how you can incorporate the latest and greatest trends into your home.  We think this is an excellent shade soften the industrial edges that are trending in furniture now. Here are some products, currently at our showrooms, that will bring some radiance to your space.

The Harlequin Magenta Rug will add 2014’s pop of color to your deep espresso or black leather sofa. Using a trending color, pattern or texture in an accessory will refresh and update your living room, great room, family room or even dining room space while still being an easy piece to change in the future.


This floral pillows combines a orchid-like pink with another of this year’s hottest trends – metallics.  Pair with your creamy linen upholstery group or toss onto the master bed to add just a touch of trend to your classic room design.



Radiant Orchid adds a touch of whimsy and romance to this traditional, neutral palette.

As with most trends, there are many ways to work Radiant Orchid into your space.  All the products here are available at Schneiderman’s Furniture in Minnesota (MN) with showrooms around the St. Paul and Minneapolis metro area and now selling at schneidermans.com.
