2013 Paint Color Trends – What Colors Can Home Stagers Utilize?

Every year the top paint manufactures (Pantone, Benjamin Moore, Sherwin Williams, Behr) release their paint color trends for the upcoming year.  As a home stager and interior redesigner, I try to draw inspiration from color on many level.  I must admit, my curiosity over the new color trends always has me wondering if these colors can used in the average home.
