Happy Holiday Season to all!

Being a designer, my eyes are firmly set on design styles and color trends of the future. The entire 2011 will see a lot of mix of colors for every season.  There are a certain colors that come and go with seasons and some basic ones that tend to stay forever as classics. Here are 10 basic yet most popular colors for winters, which are known as color essentials for home.

1. Black is certainly the most popular of all dark colors. Most designers like to include black in the color palette of their designs for winters as it is classic and elegant.
