New colors hit the runway first and then home furnishings soon follow. This coming season "designers’pay homage to progressive moments in American history – from the seductive ‘20s to the bohemian hippie and modernists of the ‘60s and ‘70s," says Pantone Color Institute's Leatrice Eiseman.
"Juxtaposition of color from opposite sides of the spectrum emphasizes poise and confidence... it is the first time we are seeing a truly unisex color palette."

Use these handy guides by Interior Designer Lisa Ferguson to make the best choice.
