This week’s color palette is based on periwinkle blue and natural golden wood or grass tones. Hawthorn green by Benjamin Moore has a mix of brown and yellow and green, like fall grasses might appear. They all work wonderfully together as a palette. We’re seeing periwinkle pop into spring palettes and we love revisiting this color. This palette could work for just about any room in your home as it’s both restful and classic.

All colors listed above are Benjamin Moore Paints. Gold and brass… over the … Read more

This fall’s trend in coats is pastels, like this pink coat from Rochas. Together with gold this is a great color palette for celebrations, weddings and even rooms that you’d like to feel warm. If you aren’t keen on painting your walls pink, pink can come in the way of accessories like pillows and your walls can be a color like Benjamin Moore’s Ivory Tusk. Your main pieces like a sofa, rug or headboard can be in neutrals as well. I usually like to paint trim white, Benjamin Moore’s Decorator’s white to be exact. Gold hardware or lighting really would … Read more
This week’s color palette is inspired by a ‘street style’ photo from Elle. Orange and red, being wonderful warm colors can look beautiful with gold accessories, like you see here with the model’s jewelry.
