Color Trends 2013: Vintage Moxie

Think 50s and 60s pastels with a modern funky twist and you will have Vintage Moxie, one of the color trends for 2013.  "The retro glamour of pearls, florals and classic feminine silhouettes are tempered by fun and funky accents and attitude," according to Sherwin-Williams.

Pastels, once seen as feminine or suitable for a child's room, have been given a makeover for 2013.  The bolder pastels of this retro and fun color palette is off set by neutrals and highlighted with an almost black accent color.  Call it funky, bold and flirty with a dash of attitude.

So, how can you bring a touch of Vintage Moxie into your home without draining your wallet?  Start with accent pieces in your living room, like a throw blanket or pillow.  These allow you to experiment with the color palette or patterns without a huge commitment or financial investment.

Want a big more pop of color? Ribbon the Vintage Moxie colors around your room by bringing it up to eye level with glossy mirrors, a calming artwork on the wall, mod inspired draperies or vintage candlesticks on the mantle.

Ground the look with an area rug in one of the colors or an interesting modern print.

Have fun with this trend -- for that is what it represents.
