What better way to survive a long, chilly winter and add a splash of optimism to design for 2011 than bright, clear citrus hues?  Fashion runways (long awknowledged to be the starting point for home color trends) have featured different iterations of this color in collections for both Spring and Fall and we’re thrilled to see it spilling over into interiors.  If entire rooms of this energizing hue are too much for your design sensibilities, citrus is also appropriate as a fun, surprising pop of color in an otherwise  neutral space.  Read blogger Kiki Titterud’s take on the trend at Sensational Color for Your Home.
