We'll also see more blues coming back, a choice often favored by men. 





Furniture that is white or khaki is hugely popular right now because it lets you add any splash of color - such as accent pieces that mix bold navy, white, moss green and bronze. 

New home color trend #3: Blues

Combinations of blue, white, and tan are tried and true. 

A classic porcelain blue bathroom - a mainstay for those who love traditional color palettes - blends beautifully in homes with white kitchen cabinets and khaki main walls:
