"Question: Is there a popular color combo that needs to go away?
Answer: As much as I love it, chocolate brown and pale blue has been done to death. And bright, intense orange and lime green—that's a color combination that's become Target-ized. It's everywhere."
While his opinion is valid, it rubs me the wrong way because I can picture every homeowner who has a brown and blue room (or has used orange and green in their outdoor decor) worrying that they are out of style now and should redecorate!
I guess my point is that while those combos are used a lot, if someone loves them they should stick with it. I hesitate to say one combo is "in" or "out" because that keeps us caught up in trends and really great decor begins with surrounding yourself with what you love, no matter the color or trends!
