Color Craze: Salmon and Glacier Gray

Soft. Sensuous. Dreamy. All apropos descriptives for two colors that personify the comfy, cozy lifestyle. But don't be fooled. They have a sneaky way of punching up your home with a vibrancy that can only be described as alive.

There's something so comforting about the elegant living room in the NYC apartment designed by Jamie Drake pictured above. While this color palette is far from traditional, its soothing vibe is warm and inviting. The walls were expertly painted using Salmon Peach by Benjamin Moore Aura and softened with a custom glaze. The steel and pale gray accessories could have made a hard,  sharpened contrast but instead complement the calming energy of the room.

The Salmon and Glacier Gray palette get 2 thumbs up for versatility. While it may now be easier for you to envision these colors in an expansive space like a living room, incorporating them cohesively in smaller ways and spaces can be uncomplicated too. Refinishing a desk or uplifting a vanity (see below) can give new life to a home office or bathroom.

Limelight and Sulphur Spring

You can depend on this color combo to bring the summertime sizzle. Limelight and Sulphur Spring bring new meaning to brightness! It's eye-catching but never gaudy. Always current and filled with the promise of life at its most vivid.

We've been seeing variations of this color duo in fashion for years. Glowy neon yellow-greens have become a staple in activewear and accessories. I designed these Lemon Tree Earrings using these vibrant shades and will always have this palette somewhere within my jewelry collections. But I'm seeing it pop up more for home interiors lately and I love the trend! I'll admit, I'm not brave enough to incorporate it into my home in a substantial way but I will use it to accent in an area that craves energy. The kitchen below has a proportionate balance that refreshes the senses and doesn't overwhelm. This highly functional room is a natural fit for such "health-conscious" colors.

Bathrooms are unsurprisingly another perfect space for colors that pop. I adore the floor-to-ceiling tiles as a bright focal point. Green and clean!

The color palette is so appealing that I've used it in our company branding and incorporated shades of Limelight and Sulphur Spring into my design studio. The matching Slipper Chairs you see below are a steal right now on Amazon (although not currently available in the color shown, Basil Velvet).

Red Hot Reds

the British film director, Derek Jarman may have said it best - 

“Red protects itself. No color is as territorial. It stakes a claim, is on the alert against the spectrum.”

Color Red Quote

image: red apples

no matter how intimidating it may make you feel, there is no reason to be scared of the color red. It is a kind, loving color (think valentine's day). As matter of fact, no matter where or how you use it, you only need a touch of it to make an impact. Of course, if you are as bold and brilliant as this hue can be, then feel free to splash it everywhere.
