Runway To Color Palette: Peach Perfect

Fashion knows no boundaries and neither should interior design. For most people, using peach in a space can seem too much of a good thing. I disagree! Peach has been trending like crazy so let’s embrace it in our spaces. Now, it needs to be implemented in small steps. No one wants a giant peach room. That’s why using it with neutral tones, such as black, white and grey, works so well. We are using this super cute outfit as inspiration. So without further adieu, here’s the look:

Products: 1. Stool 2. Floor Lamp 3. Blanket 4. Dining Table 5. Pendant 6. Pillowcase 7. Pillow For even more finds inspired by this palette, go here.

Color Inspiration: Sweater.
Create a two toned wall using Extra White on the bottom, Domino on the top, divided by white chair railing placed a quarter from the floor.

Color Inspiration: Boots.
Tricorn Black can be used in accessories and lighting. A big black pendant light would look stunning.

Color Inspiration: Skirt.
Sunset is the perfect peach and can be used in accessories, fabrics, upholstered pieces and even an accent wall.

Bonus: If you want to add some cool gray to your space, use Morning Fog.

Runway to Color Palette: Mixing Yellow

When life hands you lemons, it’s best to make lemonade. When life hands you a lot of yellow, it’s best to pair it with other colors so that you’re not living in a land of sunshine and sunflowers. Though some may love a tidal wave of yellow, I think it looks pretty paired with colors that can compliment the yellow hue. This ensemble below is breathtaking and so accessible for an interior space. Starting with a neutral backdrop and building upon these colors can create a modern and timeless space. Here’s the look:

Products: Kartell Chair, Floral Knob, Ombre Velvet Pillow, Kate Spade Pitcher, Coat RackFor even more finds inspired by this palette, go here.

Color Inspiration: Jacket.
Paint an entire room using Philipsburg Blue for a moody, classic look.

Color Inspiration: Shirt.
Ice Mist is a pretty white to use in ceramics, wood pieces and even upholstered pieces.

Color Inspiration: Shirt.
Use pops Bold Yellow in furniture pieces (like shown above) and fabrics.

Color Inspiration: Skirt.
Another gorgeous accent color to use in accessories and even curtain panels is Orange Nectar.

Bonus: Add Universal Black for another anchor color.

runway to color palette: combination pretty

When picking out an outfit, most people stick to what is comfortable to them. Some prefer the classic black. Some are a little more bold and loving mixing colors. Some feel that a neutral palette suites them best. When designing a space in your home, who says you have to stick to one palette? Mix the classic black, bold colors and neutrals for a stylish and modern space.  This 3.1 Phillip Lim ensemble creates a palette that is all of this and more.  Here’s the look:

Color Inspiration: Sweatshirt and shoes.
On the walls: Lazy Grey is a great classic grey.  Extra White is a go-to white for all of your walls

Color Inspiration:  Sunglasses.
For an accent wall or inside shelving, go soft with Blushing.

Color Inspiration: Lips on sweatshirt.
Use this striking Gypsy Red in pillows and accessories.

Color Inspiration: Belt.
For an upholstered piece such as a sofa, Artisan Tan will allow you to accessorize with color.

Color Inspiration: Bonus (Pants and Clutch)
Use this Tricorn Black in ceramics, frames and accessories.
Obstinate Orange is great color for art and even upholstered pieces.
