Runway To Color Palette: Unexpected Gray

I have to say that my favorite neutral color is gray. Gray goes with just about everything. It modernizes clothing and spaces almost instantly. Below Zoe Saldana is wearing an ensemble complete of different gray tones. She looks fabulous! This same approach can be made in your home. Filling a space with different tones of gray’s can create a modern, fresh and surprisingly inviting space. Start with a light, airy gray and just build upon it. Here’s the look:

Runway To Color Palette: Feeling Fall

Whether you like it or not, it’s fall! Some places are experiencing fall more than others. Where I’m from, we have a beautiful, colorful fall season. The trees turn epic hues of orange, red, brown and deep deep green. The weather becomes crisp and cool, making one desire warm textures and fabrics. When I first saw the outfit below I instantly got excited for early fall. It’s a season where you can layer those warm and deep shades in your outfits and in your home. Burnt orange, army green and cranberry red look stunning together. All you need to do is anchor those colors with neutrals such as black, cream and add a splash of gold to the mix. Here’s the look:

Products: 1. Floor Pillow 2. Chair 3. Wall Hook 4. Rug 5. Pillow 6. Wire Cubes 7. Butterfly Chair For even more finds inspired by this palette, go here.

Shady Lane is one of my favorite green hues to use on a wall, in accessories and even in upholstered pieces.

Runway To Color Palette: Turning Turquoise

Unlike some colors, turquoise has to be paired with just the right colors to be trendy and not tacky. Inspired by the sea and all of it’s beauty, this color can be a stunning accent for any room. For fashion, it’s best to wear one key piece in this bright color and pair it with neutrals and or denims. The same goes for room decor. Try using a neutral sofa and adding turquoise throw pillows or a turquoise side table. Another fun idea would be to find a rug with a turquoise weaved throughout and add it to a neutral space for just the right amount of color! Here’s the look:

Products: 1. Sofa 2. Pillows 3. Side Table 4. Pouf 5. Chair 6. Rug For even more finds inspired by this palette, go here.

Color Inspiration: Jacket.
Turquish is a color that should be used sparingly. It’s a beautiful turquoise, perfect for accessories and accent walls.

Color Inspiration: Scarf.
For another colorful accent, Rejuvenate is a great option to pair with turquoise.

Color Inspiration: T-shirt.
Use a cool white like Pure White on your walls in in furniture pieces.

Bonus: Grays and blacks are also lovely neutrals to use with turquoise.

Runway to Color Palette: Black and White is Back

Nothing expresses timeless style like black and white. It’s the color palette that just keeps going and going. Whether you want to dress up for a fancy event or dress down for lunch with your besties, black and white always performs perfectly. Black and white also creates a sophisticated space when used correctly. Below we see a pair of black leather pants paired with a white jacket. For your home, try pairing a black sofa with a white coffee table and or a white chair with a black floor lamp. However you tie these two colors together, you will create a timeless space. Here’s the look:

Products: 1. Credenza 2. Pillow 3. Chair 4. Pendant 5. Pouf 6. Floor Lamp For even more finds inspired by this palette, go here.

Runway to Color Palette: Perfect Pale Pink

If you are in touch with trends or like to be in touch with trends, you’ll notice that pale pink is taking over. It’s a soothing, complimentary color that creates peaceful moments. It’s not just your girly girl color anymore. I’ve seen a variety of pinks in mens fashion and even in male offices and other spaces. When pairing pink with other colors, two options can be applied. You can pair it with other colors, creating a colorful array or you can pair it with neutral tones, creating a tranquil space. Inspired by this delicate outfit, I have put together a look that is stylish, classic and playful for your space. Here’s the look:

Products: 1. Chair 2. Rug 3. Floor Lamp 4. Sofa 5. Pillow 6. Pillow For even more finds inspired by this palette, go here.

Color Inspiration: Pants.
Amour Pink really is the perfect pink! Try it as a wall color or use it in upholstered pieces and accessories.

Color Inspiration: Sweater.
For a neutral cool grey, try Gris. Use it in fabrics, on walls or in accessories.

Color Inspiration: Shoes and Bag.
Black of Night can be used in lighting, frames, wooden furniture pieces and much more.

Bonus: Try accents of gold and brass with this color palette.
