Sixth Sense

Luminous hues represent the seamless ease of living enabled by smart technology.

Iridescent finishes marry beautifully with this palette.

Deep charcoal floor coverings will ground and highlight this ethereal color family.

The pale grays create
a sense of mixed metals while the shades of turquoise act as patinas. Try a copper light
fixture or drawer pull with this palette.

Picture Perfect

Filtered hues capture social media’s influence on the way we craft and share our stories.

A pop of salmon is everything right now. Look for peach and coral on accent pillows, throws, tassels and lamp shades; they are some of gray’s best friends.

I love this palette; it’s so easy.
I'd put a light slate on my walls,
cream on the upholstery, a
leather chair in copper and
accent textiles in coral and peach.
Don’t forget to accessorize with
mixed metals and light blue to
complete the look of your room.

New-Fashioned
Family

Joyful hues celebrate the independent spirit of today’s diverse, blended, non-traditional families.

Don't be afraid to cover the walls in dark tones. You can create balance with white trim and baseboards, and break up the weight of a dark wall with decor such as framed photographs or a Moroccan wedding blanket.

Pair the rich tones of this color palette with light neutrals in upholstery and floor coverings.

Nurtured by Nature

Lush hues express the essential connection between nature, well-being and growth.

With a palette supported by the outdoors, I would continue this homage with a few rustic finishes. Live-edge, worn, wood surfaces, nubby braided throws and linen upholstery.

Olive is ahead of its time. Welcome her with open arms. Inside secret: she loves brass friends.
