I’m really feeling tones of lusty romantic violets and soft greens right now with black and weathered gray mixed in… all against a white foundation (but of course) with ethnic accents. Here are some current inspirations from my files…
The palette in my bedroom
The Autumn collection at my Noa Noa shop around the corner.
Are you inspired by this palette too? It’s everywhere over here… clothing, interiors, cosmetics, fashion accessories. I think it’s a relaxing, soft mix that takes us into Fall and then nicely into the Winter season as gray is such a great neutral for the cold months… I like pairing gray with black and silver for December, it’s a nice palette to decorate the home with since it’s classy and cozy.
I also love the idea of bringing the outdoors in with natural touches — fallen branches, pinecones, acorns and flowers. Natural wood is another favorite of mine, anything rustic and untreated works very nicely with this palette as it provides a nice contrast while adding warmth as violets and grays can go a bit “cold” otherwise. You can warm up this cool scheme with natural woods, elements from the outdoors, and various textures — crochet, woodgrain, flat weaves, knits, felts, etc.
