When you are stumped for inspiration on color combinations, just look to nature. You’ll never go wrong. So if you are creating color combos, it is best to turn to the experts—animals, plants, and nature.

Let me show you with these examples of creatures and the Boysen Color Trend 2024-2025 color palettes.

Sea Inspiration and the Awakening Color Palette

Beach lovers, heads up. Wanna have your own beachy dream place at home? Use the colors of the Awakening color palette because they can remind you of your happy place. You don’t have to go into a full beach theme. You’re not a theme park. You are a being who understands the soulful lessons of the sea, who enjoys the textures of sand and pebbles underfoot, who marvels at the beauty of underwater life, who are in awe of the perfection of shells, who enjoys the palm fronds dancing in the breeze sounding like lazy gossips. You’re that person who gets up with the sun, lives life with a heightened tactile awareness, and goes home to cozy up with your loved ones as night falls.

It wouldn’t be surprising if your home vibe is loving, peaceful, and laid-back. You value comfort more than slick looks. And the colors you choose for your home would be bright but not intense, inviting, and soothing to the eyes. For you, it’s all about the warm and gooey feelings of love and peace, and that brimming feeling of gratitude for blessings received.

Peace out.

Make It Macaw And The Alchemy Color Palette

Make the awe-inspiring macaw your inspiration for jaw-dropping interiors. Fly with confidence and ease as you make decisions about the colors of the rooms in your house. Make a color story using the Alchemy color palette. What would be the primary color for each room? Make those choices, then echo the other colors in the rooms to give a cohesive feel to the whole house.

This color palette is not for the timid. Just like the macaw, it carries a lot of bite. Impact and personality you will have aplenty with the intense colors. Hankering for a unique and impactful home? Reach out for this palette.

Color Shifting to the Artistry Color Palette

Here’s a chameleon sporting the bright, playful colors of the Artistry color palette. We’ve translated that into wall colors in a living room with the use of a simple, geometric mural. I’m sure if your kids see this kind of wall treatment, they’d like to have something similar in their rooms too. I can also imagine having polka dots in these different colors in a nursery.

The Artistry color palette is light and bubbly. It’s an antidote to the heaviness of issues, global and national, that we see in the news today. Your thoughts create your reality so get some inspiration from the brilliant chameleon and splash these paint colors in your home. These lively and innocent hues would help move your mood meter from dull and heavy to easygoing and fun.

Leap Your Way Up With The Abundance Color Palette

Vibrant, warm, effervescent—three words that describe the iconic red-eyed tree frog, just like the Abundance color palette. These sparking colors would fit the energy of a person who lives with such enthusiasm and joy that people want to have him or her in their midst so they can bask in this person’s glow. May we all be blessed with having such a loved one in our lives.

Do you like having people in your home most of the time? Do you feel good that they make time to visit you? Do you want people to feel “mi casa es su casa“? You don’t care much for security because you know that people in your community love you and will watch out for you. A home with such inviting and vibrant colors as these oranges, pink, and greens will be the perfect backdrop for your energy. You don’t have a cornucopia. You ARE the cornucopia.

Abundance begets abundance. If you are generous with your time and earthly possessions, then chances are you will be blessed with more. In spiritual terms, this is called the consciousness of abundance. If you believe that there is enough wealth, success, and happiness for everyone, this kind of mindset will bring you more of those too. Amplify it with gratitude.
