DUSTY ROSES

Regardless of whether the color is reserved for a wall paint or an accent piece in the living room, this subdued shade has the ability to set an authoritative element with a space. Especially when it comes in a textured finish.

In the kitchen, the shade is paired with an all-white tile backsplash and bare concrete counters. Warm metallics in copper or gold finishes lend an elevated dimension to the color palette, while textured wooden pieces and natural linens provide a more organic layer to the look.

The dusty shade seamlessly translates into the bedroom, preferably in the form of fine linen bedding, intentionally crinkled to perfection. Pair the color with contrasting shades of a similar tone – stone grays and blues work best.

In the bedroom, the saturated shade instills a mod backdrop softened by the blush-toned drapes and warm wood furnishings. Matte black furnishings complement the masculine aesthetic, while the intricate crown molding elevate the room.

SKY BLUES

For a color as beautifully captivating as this, it’s hard not to go overboard when incorporating it into a space. In truth, it manages to speak volumes when reserved for a more modest display.

In the rustic bedroom, the shade of blue is a natural complement to the wooden textures and whitewashed backdrop, scattered with a vibrant handful of potted greens.

SOFT LILACS

Albeit it’s a stone’s throw from rose quartz, this relaxing hue epitomizes modern elegance at its best. Reminiscent of the flower, we’re looking to the color in its natural form for inspiration.

Bringing the fickle shade into an interior can be intimidating, especially when the space in question skews more towards the contemporary. Opt for a finish with a slightly smoky undertone for a more subtle approach.
