Cayenne – This bold hue looks fantastic when paired as an accent color to neutral décor. Consider adding red charger plates to classic white dinnerware to add just the right amount of pop to dining rooms. This rich color doesn’t need to be overdone, as a few small touches go a long way.

Celosia Orange – Bright and colorful, this hue looks gorgeous paired with white, black, silver and even a healthy pop of cayenne. Many designers compare this hue to a good sense of humor – meaning everyone should have some.

Dazzling Blue – Adding a twist to the classic white and blue motif, dazzling blue looks equally stunning in bathrooms or incorporated into tablescape designs. Blue charger plates also look spectacular in country-style kitchens with white dinner plates. This color is similar to Delft pottery, the popular blue and white pottery, which is famous throughout the Netherlands.

Freesia – This eye-popping lighter-than-mustard yellow helps keep homes looking summery and fresh. Whether it’s adding pillows to couches or dressing up dining room chairs, this color is an upbeat addition to homes. It looks sublime on walls when paired with white window trim.

Hemlock – The perfect mellow shade of light green, this hue is reminiscent of warm outdoor summer evenings.It pairs well with white, black and even muted shades of gray.

Paloma – Absolutely the most beautiful shade of gray, this color looks amazing on dining room walls with white wainscoting or next to an antique white china hutch. To help incorporate this color into tablescapes, consider pairing antique, gray sculptures against a white linen table runner. Glass charger plates or white with glass rim charger plates are a must-have accessory for this gorgeous hue.

Placid Blue – With a hint more baby and sky blue than the classic dazzling blue, this peaceful color is reminiscent of an ocean-kissed venue. It looks marvelous next to bright whites, complimentary blue tones and light colored wood floors.

Radiant Orchid – Not really purple, but yet not pink, this delicious hue brings the perfect touch of floral color indoors. It’s definitely attention grabbing and not for the faint of heart, but when done well, it’s simply bohemian done right. It pairs well with slate gray, bright whites and hints of cayenne.

Sand – The perfect neutral brown tone, this color is expected to sweep kitchens in 2014, making appearances in countertops, custom wood cabinetry and even in open-style ceiling beams.

Violet Tulip – Similar to the must-have muted lavender spring nail polish color of the season, this gentle hue looks sensational paired with slate gray. It’s like mixing a dash of fragrant lavender with a gentle hint of daisies.
